Patience Philips (Halle Berry) just won't stand up for herself. A meek people-pleaser, she squanders her considerable artistic talent in a thankless job as a graphics designer for huge cosmetics company run by the tyrannical George Hedare (Lambert Wilson) and his icy supermodel wife, Laurel (Sharon Stone).
But Patience's quiet life is forever changed when she overhears a conversation revealing that Hedare's new miracle anti-aging product is a fraud. Caught in the wrong place at the worst possible time, Patience is murdered to keep Hedare's secret safe.
But all is not lost. Resurrected by mysterious forces, she awakens...and she doesn't come back alone. Now gifted with strength, agility and ultra-keen senses, she is no longer just Patience - she is also Catwoman, a seductive creature delicately balancing on the dangerously thin line between good and evil.
Revelling in her rebirth, Catwoman is soon on the prowl, eager to settle a few scores and have herself some long overdue fun. Sometimes you have to die to get a life.
What the critics are saying:
"The filmmakers have given great thought to photographing Berry, who looks fabulous, and little thought to providing her with a strong character, story, supporting characters or action sequences."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"Directed by a Frenchman with the single, not uncatlike name of Pitof, Catwoman is a howlingly silly, moderately diverting exercise in high, pointless style."- A.O. Scott, New York Times"So much talent wasted. So much money squandered. So much opportunity missed."- Winda Benedetti, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
