Halle Berry, Benjamin Bratt, Sharon Stone, Lambert Wilson, Frances Conroy, Alex Borstein
A shy, attractive young woman accidentally overhears some critical information about a cosmetic product, and is chased, and drowned after being sluiced into a river. But life is breathed into her by an Egyptian cat, and she gains many feline attributes, and with her new superpowers goes on the track of the evil company.
The catperson scampers about on top of buildings wearing leather gear, occasionally whipping the villains (they don’t like it). Some set pieces with hand to hand combat, and a few pistol shots. A bit of romance and some implied sex, but no drugs, no drinking and no interest.
Even Halle Berry in leather can’t keep this going. I think the whip was a serious mistake, what did that have to do with cats? And as usual I am concerned that the superhero’s costume does not provide enough protection – even from a cold night. It won in a number of Razzie categories, including Worst Picture and Worst Actress – she turned up to collect hers. Bad – but I kept thinking it could have been OK.
