Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

What a mess!

What a mess...from the direction, to the costumes, to the story, to the cinematography (especially in the beginning). This film feels like a myriad of clichés crammed into the first 30 minutes and then subsequently handed out one by one for the rest of the film. Berry and Stone are strong actors that are not given strong material. The male gaze of this film robs Berry's character of any agency. Stone fights for her moments of what she feels this film is really about, but by then it is too little too late and we have all checked out.

Not as bad as everyone is trying to make it seem.

The best Catwoman movie ever, I use to binge watch this when I was a child, I wanted to be just like Catwoman, the visuals was amazing and the fight scenes were radical asf. Halle Berry was/is the best actress to portray Patience aka Catwoman, no one and I mean nobody can take that away from her or take her spot as Catwoman.
