Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Catwoman: Hunted is a 2022 anime movie in which Catwoman gets caught in the middle of a battle between Interpol, a global crime syndicate, and Batwoman. There are some moments of strong innuendo between Catwoman and Batwoman, where Catwoman makes suggestive comments to Batwoman before she removes her towel to take a bath. While in the tub, Catwoman's breasts are almost fully exposed, with bubbles strategically covering the nipples. Later, Batwoman makes a joking reference to the "faux sexual tension" between her and Catwoman, and it comes up again a couple more times later in the movie. Expect superhero action violence, including spikes impaling feet, thighs, and arms, with some blood, a character impaled on rebar, and fighting with assault weapons, guns, swords, steel claws, and whips. The movie also features some monster/demonic imagery, occasional mild profanity ("ass," "damn," "hell"), and wine drinking at a party.

Is It Any Good?
This is a solid superhero story with the anime style being its most distinctive feature. Catwoman: Hunted is a fast-paced story filled with the requisite action and the dry, noir, smart-alecky dialogue we've come to expect from these DC adaptations intended for more mature audiences. The voice acting is also strong, with some fun moments of playing "Is that who I think it is?" and discovering that you were right (hint: Jonathan Banks and Jonathan Frakes, for instance).
There are moments where this movie falls short, though, like what's acknowledged as "faux sexual tension" between Catwoman and Batwoman that feels forced. Also, there's a lingering sense that a good part of the third act is little more than an excuse to find a way to pit Catwoman and Batwoman against assorted villains. This also tends to come across as forced, but overall, this is still an entertaining story of forced alliances and temporary loyalties.
