Catwoman starts in a brand new heist film that shows why she’s not to be messed with.

When Catwoman attempts to steal a precious jewel from the criminal organization Leviathan, she gets in a little over her head. When she thinks she’s in the clear, she is forced by Interpol to help take down Leviathan. Now forced to work with Batwoman, Catwoman must figure out a way to save her own skin.

Let me first just say that this movie was a lot of fun. There was action, suspense, humor, sexual tension. And it all mixed well together. The entire movie so reminded me of one of those 60’s comedy caper films, and think that was the point of it. Films like Pink Panther and Italian Job, where just everything is so crazy. The plot of this film really does move at a great pace and knows when to give the audience a chance to catch their breath.

The other thing I really like about this film was the style of Anime they used. It was very retro-looking. Of course, being a comedy caper film, it reminded me of Lupin The Third, and that’s a good thing. This animation style really works here.

Elizabeth Gillies voices Catwoman and she does a great job at it. Gillies is able to match up her own emotions to the animation. Her entire voice is just sultry and manipulative throughout the film. This is the Catwoman you expect.

Stephanie Beatriz voices Batwoman and honestly, I wasn’t too thrilled with it. I’ve heard Beatriz voice other animated characters so well, but here she’s trying way too hard for that “Batman” like voice. It really bothered me and it was hard to get past it. It was just way too forced. 

The rest of the cast did a really solid job. Very entertaining and well cast. 

Catwoman: Hunted comes with 2 bonus features:

When The Hunter Becomes The Hunted – This was an interesting behind-the-scenes look on how this entire project came to be. There’s is an analysis of why each villain that appeared in this film was picked. Interesting stuff. I love getting into creators’ heads and seeing how this all came to being. 

Catwoman: The Feline Femme Fatale – This was a look at Catwoman’s origins. Starting with her humble appearance in the comic, to a cultural icon. All three Catwomen from the Batman TV show appeared, as well as Michelle Pfeiffer, Hallie Berry, Anne Hathaway, and Camren Bicondova from the Gotham TV show. And of course plenty of comic creators. Very enjoyable.

All in all, I really liked this film. It was fun and action-packed.

Catwoman: Hunted is currently available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray,  and Digital Download.
