If you're expecting some sort of commercial tie-in to Batman, be disappointed. This really has nothing to do with Gotham City and barely touches on the DC comic universe at all.
The movie itself performs an almost impossible feat, it takes Halle Berry, amongst the sexiest film stars in the world at the time of its release, and the sultry, sexy villainess Catwoman, and makes a truly repugnant character out of the two of them.
As an origin story, it doesn't really deliver anything new to the character and eventually boils down to two women arguing over makeup and cosmetics (seriously, it's true).
A fine example of a terrible movie. Put it down immediately.
