Wonderwoman2

W O N D E R   W O M A N 

CAST : Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davies

DIRECTOR : Patty Jenkins

RATING : 4.5/5

THE BLURB : Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

MY REVIEW :

While I endured Batman vs Superman there was one moment in particular that caught my attention. It was the moment we saw a photo of Wonder Woman taken with a band of four during World War 1. I wanted to know more about that photo, who were those men? And, what was Wonder Woman doing during World War 1? That was the movie I wanted to watch. Someone out there obviously had the same idea because that is the movie I got and I really enjoyed it.

This movie is not without its flaws but I am not going to spend my time pointing them out, they are fairly obvious. Instead I want to mention what wonderful job all the actors did in their respective roles.

Gal Gadot our leading lady, Diana Prince AKA Wonder Woman, is simply beautiful in her role. She proves that a female superhero can be just as fierce and loyal as any male but also empathetic stating that she “chooses love”.  Chris Pine was also very good in his role as Steve Trevor. Initially I thought he was just going to reprise his role as Captain Kirk. As much I love Chris Pine, I do find he plays a lot of his roles very similar. However, you cannot help but like Steve Trevor and his comical secretary, Etta Candy (Lucy Davies).  Sameer, Charlie and The Chief are also fun.

The action sequences were engaging, I enjoyed the soundtrack that went along with them. I was interested in the way DC managed to combine the horrors of the Great War especially the introduction of chemical warfare. The scientist Dr Maru nicknamed Dr Poison was a character who was quite chilling in appearance as well as in nature. I felt as though her role should have been bigger.

For a DC movie there is quite a big dollop of humour which I would have associated more with the Marvel Movies which could be the reason why I liked it so much. Patty Jenkins did a really good job as the first female director of a Superhero movie. I think it is thanks to her that we have a movie that appeals to all, rather than just teenage boys.

I am hoping that this movie marks a turning point in the recent history of DC movies. Overall I really enjoyed this movie despite its flaws. It has erased some of mistakes made with Batman vs Superman which leads me to hope that there is some hope for The Justice League Movie.
