If you want to see a real Catwoman, check out Michelle Pfeiffer's turn in Batman Returns, but whatever you do, leave this kitty cat in the alley where it belongs.

Its over-edited style smacks of panic, the CGI cat woman is plainly not real, and the broadside it fires at the beauty industry is only limp at best.

It's painful.

Bereft of excitement and with action scenes similar to those we've seen a dozen times before, this is a very poor effort indeed.

Catwoman is worse than bad -- it's boring. So boring it's not even laughable.

Halle Berry is a lovely woman with charisma to burn and definite acting ability -- but even the best actors sometimes need to be told when they're making fools of themselves.

Not as over-the-top as you might hope, but also not as bad. Daft and moderately entertaining.

Poor special effects (with weak echoes of better superhero outings such as Spider-Man) and an uneven central performance contribute to what was one of the flop blockbusters of 2004.

A lumpy, unexciting melée, as satisfying as a bowl of sour milk.

The screenplay's a hodgepodge of witchcraft, ancient Egyptian lore, pulp feminism, and a dash of S&M.

Catwoman's director, a visual-effects specialist named Pitof, is not contained by the rules of filmmaking. Scenes that make sense? Nonsense. Characters with inner lives? Utterly passe.

A flashy but uninvolving Batman spin-off (of sorts) with Halle Berry starring andone-named French talent Pitof directing.

If cats, those snootiest of creatures, went to the movies, they would be appalled and mortified. What did they ever do to deserve having their good name and mannerisms dragged through such dingbat fluff as this?

Relentlessly gaudy and in love with its PG-13 approximation of kink, Catwoman is essentially an excuse to pose Berry in ever-skimpier outfits. It's all too pre-fab to register as sexy, though, and even the fight scenes look like fashion shoots.

A soulless amalgamation of quick edits, computer images and swooping, nausea-inducing dolly shots.

[Provides] a safety net for every person who ever directs a superhero movie for the rest of time: "Well, that completely sucked, but it was no Catwoman".

From the looks of French director Pitof's poorly realized effort of bringing DC Comics' "Catwoman to the big screen, it seems unlikely that a sequel for the feline superhero/villain.

Widely considered a terrible movie, but if you enjoy the camp genre, it's a must-see. It is, in fact, camp on a catnip high.
