A prime example of what Japanese filmmakers do better than anyone else - take a ludicrous premise, give it a serious treatment, and somehow manage to make it all work. During the day, three lovely sisters run a restaurant called "Cat's Eye". By night, they don black vinyl fetish gear and become the notorious cat burglar team known as "Cat's Eye". It's a good thing no one has ever made the connection. A live action adaptation of the anime with the same name, it resembles the original "Batman" TV series more than anything else, with its tongue-in-cheek campiness and its arsenal of ridiculous gadgetry that would make Bruce Wayne jealous. To the Cat Cave, girls! Everything about this film is fun and light-hearted, and the entire cast looks like they're having a great time. The action scenes, though somewhat tacky, are hilarious and complement the campy tone of the film quite nicely. Not for everyone, but if you appreciate anime, superhero comic book mentality, playful campiness, and girls in vinyl suits, it's definitely worth checking out.
