Cream, straight up.....
on 4 February 2014
Patience Philips, is a graphic designer for Hedare Beauty, a mammoth cosmetics company on the verge of releasing a revolutionary anti-ageing product.
When Patience inadvertently happens upon a dark secret her employer is hiding, she finds herself in the middle of a corporate conspiracy. What happens next changes Patience forever.
In a mystical twist of fate, she is transformed into a woman with the strength, speed, agility and ultra-keen senses of a cat.
With her newfound prowess and feline intuition, Patience becomes Catwoman, a sleek and stealthy creature balancing on the thin line between good and bad. Like any wildcat, she's dangerous, elusive and untamed.
Her adventures are complicated by a burgeoning relationship with Tom Lone, a cop who has fallen for Patience but cannot shake his fascination with the mysterious Catwoman, who appears to be responsible for a string of crime sprees plaguing the city.....
Yes, catwoman is possibly one of the worst comic book movies, but it's certainly not boring, like Man Thing.
Berry has slated this film on many occasion, but to be fair, Monsters Ball aside, has she really been in many great films?
She is fine as the titular character, all cat like to the extreme, one minute CGI, the next, a male Ballet dancer, but when it's Berry in the full get up, one cannot deny that the film is at its most watchable.
But the film belongs to Stone and the Merovingian. As the main bad guys, they are absurd, one with a face like marble, one with a sneer that would make Rickman proud, but both delivering on the ham side.
All in all it's a bad movie, the script Is bad, it makes no sense what so ever, and the CGI is bad, and at sometimes pointless, but it's a fun movie, with some really silly, set pieces, that make the film worthy of its camp trophy.
If you want a film to laugh at, this is the one.
