A Visual Extravaganza Brimming with Heart and Reason

Patty Jenkins' 'Wonder Woman' movie begins with a rocky, uneven start. But this very flawed pace allows the origin story of the amazonian warrior mature in a compelling build- up, and eventually navigate towards the rest of her story in a riveting seismic progression. It gathers an affectionate sentimentality that sustains its potency even amidst the imposing explosive sequences that often triumph to take the audience's attention away from the oddly satisfying distraction, that is Gal Gadot. There are these resonating anthems that remain ablaze throughout the film's 140-minute duration: love and peace, sacrifice and courage, and while it gets extremely preachy sometimes, the narrative rarely gets boring. Jenkins' take on the genre doesn't abandon the idea of terror, and mass destruction, but it singularly escapes the confines of superhero cliches that eliminate its players' moral form. In 'Wonder Woman', Diana Prince's humanity is held by Gadot's portrayal with a bracing commitment, something she never loses even when confronted with the deceptive appeal of evil and darkness. Her heroic verve gets an unexpected reinforcement from Chris Pine's Steve Trevor, with whom she shares a surprisingly inherent chemistry. This is the first DC film in a very long time, to ever sustain such visceral distinction, a visual extravaganza brimming with heart and reason. Diana Prince's story takes us to a mysterious island known as Thymiscera, hidden by Zeus in a protective dome of dim and mist, far from the grasp of humanity. She grows to believe that it is her sacred duty to protect her world, not knowing such 'world' will include what is beyond the clouds. But when the first man arrives in a suspicious water- crash landing, she expands her understanding and begins to welcome the idea of defending whoever needs help in the other side. But this eagerness barely entirely rests on a moral responsibility; she believes that Ares, the God of War, and her inevitable nemesis, is what causing the war waged by humans, and she needs to kill him in order to restore peace to both worlds. In one spine-chilling moment within her breathtakingly choreographed fight sequence with Ares, Diana rises from a fall, and virtually carries out her meteoric ascent, a symbolic assumption of her superhero status. But in spite of the amount of physical tension and visual explosion, Jenkins balances the flavor by injecting humor and romance, utilizing them even in places where gripping action sequences are imminent. Chris Pine shines in his own moments, a remarkable feat for a character in a saga that seems to underscore women empowerment. There is a powerful moment where he grapples for words to ask for Diana's help to win the war; he practically breaks down, a stirring and moving scene to behold. Part of the film's colossal allure is its heart--it never loses it, doesn't intend to, and it grows to more awe-inspiring forms as it reaches a resonating, albeit predictable, resolution. It is ironic to think that Diana Prince isn't human, but appears to be the most one, when compared with her colleagues in the looming 'Justice League' film. In the end, 'Wonder Woman' isn't a film free of blemishes as it still stumbles upon political truths it rarely gets justified, and minor expositions it doesn't seem interested to shed light on. But it has soul, humor, and wonder-- a narrative spectacle one seldom finds in a film of its sort.

A Game-Changer!

The DCEU was off to a really rough start. The previous three installments had so much potential but didn't deliver and disappointed me, and probably a lot of fans. But as for "Wonder Woman"... this movie is one of the best comic book movies I have ever seen! The movie does a great use of its nearly 2 and a half hours running time to show us Diana's origins and how she became who she is. From the island of Themyscira, the Amazonian princess finds herself in London, in the period of the first World War, alongside heartthrob pilot/spy Steve Trevor - and his friendly secretary Etta Candy - where she has to face a mad scientist (Doctor Poison), the general of the German Army (General Erich Ludendorff) and even bigger threats. And while the villains might not be the strongest thing about this movie, Gal Gadot will steal your heart as Wonder Woman, as she is charming and bad ass, with the performances of Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis and others being also noteworthy. But it is Patty Jenkins's direction and the script from the writing team that makes this movie set the bar high for future female-lead (and male-lead) comic book movies. Filled with heart, humour, action, some romance and war drama, this movie is not just a game-changer for DC's shared movie universe. It's a game-changer for this genre as a whole.

Wonder Woman: Best DC Movie after the Batman Trilogy!

Just watched the first show and everybody started clapping when the credit started to roll in the end. That says a lot about a movie. Many of us had doubt when Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman, and she proved the worth. What an amazing cast! Hollywood is full of beautiful actresses, but Gal also has a great personality which resonates with her character very well. She is strong as well as funny. Chris Pine turned out to be the perfect sidekick and love interest of Diana. He has this old classic Hollywood look. I am hoping we will see more of Connie Nelson and Robin Wright's character in the next venture. I don't want to go further into screenplay. It has its tiny flaws, but we have seen much worse in recent times. Many people might argue why the WWI? Well, the core of the movie is not the war, but the darkness inside us that causes the war. You can easily relate it to today's narrative. I enjoyed the movie through and through. Finally a quality superhero movie from DC after Batman Trilogy. You go Gal!

The best DCEU movie so far!

I'm not so good at reviews, I'm better at just having conversations about movies, but for Wonder Woman, I'll give it a shot. The critics (and not only them) may not like the DCEU so far, but "Wonder Woman" is surely the best movie and one of the greatest comic book movies ever. The movie is "patient". We get the chance to see in depth Diana's motives and why she "walked away from mankind" 100 years ago, and why she returned to protect this world forever. Beautiful landscapes in Themiscyra, a great first act. Then, after Diana leaves her home, we get to see her adjusting in the outside world, and realizing what this war is really about. Every action scene, especially those with her theme song in the background and the combination of darkness and humor are absolutely fascinating, something that makes you wanna have to try really hard to stay in your seat. I liked every performance, but Gal Gadot was the best by far, portraying Diana Prince/Wonder Woman exceptionally. For me, she and Ben Affleck make the best performances of the DCEU and the best portrayals of their characters ever. "Wonder Woman" made me want to see Justice League even more. Not because I love DC, but because it shows us that we can be optimistic about the DCEU. I may didn't collect my thoughts so well, and this may be a "bad" review, but I loved this movie, and I couldn't handle myself. The best is yet to come! 9/10

Watch It!

The film is well rounded, the plot never leaves you bored, the humor is fresh and relatable, and the actors are so good! The costumes are realistic and the fight choreography is some of the best I've seen in a while! Pretty please, watch it! However, Do Not bring your little ones to see it. It's war scenes are tough and the violence is not for little kids. It's a very good film, though, and Gadot's acting is superb, as well as Chris Pine's!
