This movie isn't nearly as good as people say it is. The effects look like they came from a Loony Tunes cartoon, Ares as a character was bland and didn't actually follow the real Ares' personality, there was another drunk Irish stereotype, and Diana walked a border between charming hero, and annoying. Some scenes were well done, like the dancing in the snow, and dancing with the German bad guy. Score: C+
A solid effort to the start of the Wonder Woman series. Similar to the first captain America film, it is set in world war 2 to establish the story. Hopefully like the Captain America series it will get better with sequels. Gal Gadot is amazing, no one could play the role better.
In the 80s I was a kid and remember watching the Wonder Woman Series on TV. The 'spinning transformation' was the best part of it and I would wait for it to happen. And every time it brought tremendous amount of joy! Now I am 40+ and just saw this on my PC QQ player and most of the time my fingers where on the right arrow button (->)! I am very sad because I did not find any wonder woman spinning transformation. Also I missed the Wonder Woman TV Intro music.
I must be honest, it took me a while before I finally decided to watch this, as I'm not a big Hollywood superhero movie fan. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. Gil Gadot is excellent as Wonder Woman and lends credibility to the naive title character. The chemistry between her and Chris Pine was wonderful and made for a very believable love story. It felt very natural and romance between them seemed inevitable.As for the plot, I enjoyed the way the Amazonian women's back story was told, as well as Diana's (Wonder Woman). The visuals and photography are incredible! This is a visual spectacle. I loved the humorist dialogue, which was genuinely funny and never over the top or slapstick. Gil Gadot is just fabulous.This superhero movie had a very realistic feel to it with the added bonus of feeling and emotion. There are so many truths in this film humanity should take note of. The film has a very unexpected ending compared to most superhero movies, and that's what I honestly loved about the film.
