Most of the movie has the cruddy lighting and generic, death-by-franchise atmosphere of a third-rate spectacle that's been worked over by too many hacks.
Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly
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
The screenplay is flat and predictable, and bad dialogue prevails.
Claudia Puig — USA Today
Catwoman is dragged down by a paper-thin story, the predictable number of fight scenes executed at equally predictable intervals and stock, unmemorable characters.
Ann Hornaday — Washington Post
Silly and misfired.
Desson Thomson — Washington Post
Watching [Halle Berry] run around in that getup I felt embarrassed, the way I do for people who put on makeup before climbing a StairMaster -- it's too much.
Wesley Morris — Boston Globe
This plodding, by-the-numbers superhero flick has all the feline grace of a walleyed mastiff.
Mark Holcomb — Village Voice
A movie needs more than a few sexual innuendos and throaty purrs to keep us from taking a catnap.
Jami Bernard — New York Daily News
You'd never know Berry is an Oscar-winning actress -- her performance as Patience is downright amateurish.
Eric Harrison — Houston Chronicle
Any way you look at it, Catwoman disappoints.
Philip Wuntch — Dallas Morning News
[A] laughable disaster.
Lisa Kennedy — Denver Post
Tired and dated.
Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times
The Showgirls of superhero movies.
Robert K. Elder — Chicago Tribune
Obviously, no one involved in this disaster cares anything at all about Catwoman.
Noah Berlatsky — Chicago Reader
Awful adaptation of the comic-book character created by Batman's Bob Kane.
Steven Rea — Philadelphia Inquirer
The movie suffers from the opposite of a syndrome affecting most comic-book spin-offs.
Jeff Strickler — Minneapolis Star Tribune
Catwoman is fully as terrible as you guessed it might be.
Tom Long — Detroit News
This wretched film is nothing but an excuse to show [Halle Berry] wearing that skimpy leather suit.
Bill Muller — Arizona Republic
The kind of movie that almost guarantees the loss of a few I.Q. points.
Rex Reed — New York Observer
Plays like a Lifetime movie on estrogen overdose, barely held together by a script that should have been tossed out with the kitty litter.
