Catwoman: Hunted, the first DC film of the year (check the calendar), and it got the job done. Straight to the point storytelling, great action scenes, solid voice acting, and an awesome score. It does have some flaws though, but it didn’t take away from the experience.

Catwoman: Hunted is an all new original film, directed by Shinsuke Terasawa and script written by Greg Weisman. In the film, Catwoman (Elizabeth Gillies) is trying to steal a priceless jewel, but she didn’t realize what she was getting herself into. Catwoman is pit right in the middle between many powerful villains and Batwoman (Stephanie Beatriz). One thing is for sure, Selina Kyle will stop at nothing from getting what she wants no matter who stands in her way.

The storytelling was an enjoyable popcorn flick. I’ve always been a fan of heist related stories, and since this is what the film is mostly about, it was satisfying. Also, I appreciated that Catwoman: Hunted didn’t over stay its welcome because I felt like if it went a bit longer it’ll feel dragged out, so the current runtime was solid.

Without going into spoilers, it does leave it open for a sequel, and I’ll watch it for sure. There’s enough setup to make it work, hell, I’ll even watch it as a series because I think it’ll work too. Whoever is reading this over at WBHE, more please.

Catwoman: Hunted is a nice appetizer to get you ready for what’s to come for the rest of the year for superhero films.

This film had some solid casting! Elizabeth Gillies Selina Kyle/Catwoman is such genius casting. She really has the voice, and honestly, she would be a great choice for a live-action Catwoman too. Elizabeth Gillies should definitely do more Catwoman voice work for my DC animated projects.

Stephanie Beatriz sounded badass as Batwoman. At first I wasn’t feeling what the film was going for regarding how she sounded, but it warmed up to me. Enjoyed Stephanie Beatriz take.

When it comes to the villains, Jonathan Banks as Black Mask, Steve Blum as Solomon Grundy, Kelly Hu as Cheshire, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Barbara Minerva/Cheetah, and more did great! There’s a lot of villains in this film, but they were my highlights. Some appeared shorter than others, but it worked for me.

A very impressive cast for Catwoman: Hunted! If there’s anything WBHE always seems to knock it out the park is the casting voices for their projects.

I’m an anime fan, so you know this film already had my attention. I loved how fluid the animation is in Catwoman: Hunted, like it caught me by surprise how good the movements and action were in the film. Ethan Spaulding was the producer and Sam Register was the executive producer, and I would love to see them do more DC projects.

The designs for the characters can be a hit or miss. Some characters looked great, then some just looked weird in the face, which are the eyes. I felt like the eyes in the film were a bit overboard on certain characters, and if there’s a sequel I hope it’s toned down a bit. That’s literally my only nitpick for the film, eyes.

Oh and the score for this movie, amazing! To me this was my favorite thing about Catwoman: Hunted because it’s so good. I feel like the film drew some of that musical inspiration from Cowboy Bebop, which probably has one of the best scores in all of anime or media in general. I’m definitely a fan of the route they went for the music in the movie.
