Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The screenplay's a hodgepodge of witchcraft, ancient Egyptian lore, pulp feminism, and a dash of S&M."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"Catwoman is worse than bad -- it's boring. So boring it's not even laughable."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
"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."
‑ Karen Krizanovich, Radio Times
"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?"
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"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."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"A soulless amalgamation of quick edits, computer images and swooping, nausea-inducing dolly shots."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"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."
‑ James Vance, Tulsa World
"A lumpy, unexciting melée, as satisfying as a bowl of sour milk."
‑ , Total Film
"[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"."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Another hundred million dollars down the drain."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"You're left with flashes of mis-spent promise: the feline mysticism; the cosmetics-industry intrigue; the idea of electrocuting Lambert Wilson's unctious corporate cad."
‑ , Time Out
"Not as over-the-top as you might hope, but also not as bad. Daft and moderately entertaining."
‑ Daniel Etherington, Film4
"A flashy but uninvolving Batman spin-off (of sorts) with Halle Berry starring andone-named French talent Pitof directing."
‑ John Hazelton, Screen International
"This movie is kitty litter."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
