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.

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.

Having self confidence is one thing, but Catwoman commits burglaries and constantly assaults people, whether they deserve it or not.

Despite its feline pretensions, Catwoman belongs to another animal family -- it's either a dog or a turkey. Take your pick.

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.

Big-budget cheesiness built around the idea of getting Halle Berry into a sexy outfit

Swordfish; Gothika; this howler. Best Actress winner Halle Berry is getting dangerously close to exhausting her nine Hollywood lives.

The movie is deadening because it's visually and aurally overdone in a lazy, scattershot manner.

Hate is a strong word, but nowhere near fierce enough to describe the ear-steaming loathing Catwoman deserves.

Halle just hacked a hairball all over the summer boxoffice. And it ain't pretty.

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.

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

Catwoman looks and feels like something culled together by a committee of greedy and inexperienced first-time producers. And horny 14-year-olds.

Seems destined to join Showgirls and its ilk as a fast-starting and even faster-fading theatrical release that could enjoy an afterlife as a midnight movie and video/DVD item where viewers supply alternate dialogue.

French visual-FX expert Pitof directs, so the overuse of CGI is understandable, though even that can't conceal the insipid plot or Berry's ham-fisted performance.
