Set in Lake City (ie, not Gotham City), this is the story of Patience Price (Berry), a graphic artist who is murdered when she finds out a dark secret about the cosmetics company she works for, Avenal Beauty, which is a front for criminal exploits of the husband (Wilson) and wife (Stone) team that run it. Price is brought back to life, however, by an Egyptian Mao cat who is indebted to Patience for saving its life. Reborn with a new attitude, Patience Price becomes the new Catwoman and sets out to see vengeance for her murder and to stop the evil doings of Avenal Beauty.
Two downers right off the bat. A pretentious sounding director with a single name ending in Off, who's French. "Pitof" was also involved in the disaster known as Alien Resurrection. This is the first major movie he's directed. This does not bode well. Second downer - Pitof brings a French mate in the shape of the leading man to head the flick as chief villain.
Remember that Charlies Angels also has a single name director.
The big PLUS - of course, is the nubile Berry and her excuse for a costume. Hands up all those guys already purring at the thought?
