WATCH the video before you continue! SPOILERS ahead!
I like that Catwoman has a really strong opponent here so we get some peril elements.
Also, I like that her goggles get damaged, which is actually affected her sight big time. Seems like therefore she decided to pull off the whole mask, even it is unclear if these goggles are actually attached to the cowl or not as that varies in the comics.
So, we do have a forced self-unmasking here, even it isn’t shown sadly 🙁 .
What annoys me a little, just like in the Catwoman comics in the last years is that Catwoman doesn’t really have a secret identity.
I mean here is a scene where she addresses a big crowd after some heist and she even calls herself Selina Kyle.
Her mask is then more a functional (protective) tool than to hide her secret identity.
I don’t care how comic-accurate that is or not, I don’t like it. Catwoman should keep her identity a secret.
But ok, still I really enjoy seeing her in full costume and mask… like in this movie. In every scene, I am hoping that someone would go for that mask 😉
All in all a movie I can really recommend and that will find that place into my collection as soon as the Blu-ray is available here.
There aren’t many movies that have so much screen time with masked women in them!
Time for a post about Catwoman (and Batgirl) for a change!
I know this movie for quite some time but didn’t post about it yet. Normally I wanna post every scene with a masked, female character from a movie or TV episode.
If I would do that here I would need to practically post half the movie, which would be highly problematic 😉
So, in this case, I wanna post just my favorite scene.

And here is the video:
The Catwoman VS Batman storylines were always interesting for me. I just love their relationship as they are so attracted to each other, but at the same time, they stand on different sides of the law. Catwoman isn’t a black or white character like most ones. She often is a criminal but has her moral principles and even fights alongside the good guys from time to time.
The “Batman: Hush” storyline is a rather famous one and is a favorite of some of the hardcore comic fans. This movie is quite different in regards to the story, and some of these fans don’t like that. I know these comics, but I don’t really mind getting something different with this movie.
The movie has a LOT of Catwoman scenes in it, so I am already very happy for that fact alone. Plus you can also see Batgirl in it, also it is “just” the Batgirl Burnside version which I don’t like that much, due to her costume and cowl. The cowl is basically just a helmet that isn’t attached to anything or secured with a chinstrap. Ok, that’s at least better than the last comic book version where she only had a tiny eye mask….but I better don’t get started on that one 😉
I like this Catwoman version, and it’s also good that she actually is wearing her goggles so she is disguised pretty well. The fight with Batgirl here could have been (a lot) longer for my taste, but well, I get that it wouldn’t fit at that point as Batman is badly wounded and needs help.
Poison Ivy has an interesting role in this one and there are quite a lot of other villains and heroes to be found in the movie.
I really like how the thug tries to unmask Batman but gets zapped while trying. A masked heroine could use such a defense mechanism as well 😉
I recommend that you check out the whole movie, especially if you like to see masked women such as Catwoman and Batgirl 😉
