SUMMARY: Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when a pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers and her true destiny.
COMMENTS: DC put out some amazing Batman movies with Zack Snyder. Man of Steel was also very good. But, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice didn’t do as well. Since this movie spins out of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice there was some concern this movie may not do as well as its Marvel counterparts.
Leading up to the premier of the movie there was talk on Twitter, is her costume too short. Is she a feminist. Also, there are all female showing of Wonder Woman making me think I am not the target demographic.
Next, I don’t read the Wonder Woman comic, and I don’t read Justice League regularly. So again not a hardcore fan.
As for the raging fanboy in us all. The movie takes place in World War One, not World War Two. What’s better than a Nazi for a villain? Just ask Marvel (cough * Secret Empire * cough).
Having said all that I was looking forward to this movie but I wasn’t one to stand in a long line for a long time to see it.
So how was the movie? Outstanding! The movie was a lot of fun, the humor was natural and not corny. There was a lot of action and it was shot in WWE fashion. Where the action goes from slow motion for the setup and fast forward for the impact. It looked cool as hell! The story was light and innocent or as light as you can have a WWI story. The interaction between Diana and Steve was great, it was a love story without being sappy. It is left each audience member to decide how far their physical relationship went, as they left that part unclear, base on the morals of the time and human nature. All in all the most fun I have had at a DC movie since Batman: The Dark Knight and clearly puts Wonder Woman on par with Batman and Superman in the DC Cinematic Universe.
