Wonder Woman

May 31, 17 Wonder Woman

In Cinemas JUNE 1

 

SYNOPSIS:

“Wonder Woman” is released in cinemas around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. 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 an American 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.

REVIEW:

Nerida:

Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad and even Man of Steel were all critically divisive movies in the growing DC extended universe. After each one came out, fans were hoping the next one would be the movie that would be embraced by all movie going fans alike. Is Wonder Woman going to be the first DC film to be overwhelmingly praised? Yeah, I think  so!

Patty Jenkins directs with grace and wonder – You can tell how much she loves the character of Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is a strong character and this film makes movies like Catwoman and Elektra look like a complete joke. If you mix together the fish-out-of-water element of Thor and place it into the World War setting of Captain America: The First Avenger, then you get a good idea of what this movie is. Some may say it is a blatant rip off… I disagree

Much like Chris Hemsworth in the first Thor and Dave Bautista in Guardians of the Galaxy, Gal Gadot is limited in the amount of dramatic acting she has to do and is instead given the chance to show her surprisingly decent comedic chops to hide her unseasoned acting ability. The beauty comes from when Gadot really needs to get serious in some key scenes, she brings it and she’s pretty commendable. Add on her great physicality and look and Gadot is actually pretty damn good in the role. Her Chemistry with Chris Pine is one of the highlights of the movie and may be one of the reasons Gadot is as good as she is.

While the boss scene at the end of the film was a bit over-dramatic, some flaws in the WWI accuracy (pointed out thanks to my other half James…) can be seen as some down points…at the end of the day, while I wouldn’t say that Wonder Woman is one of the best comic book movies ever made by any stretch of the imagination. I would, however, say that it is a very good instalment and that it is the best DC movie since 2008’s The Dark Knight.

Head along, enjoy, and see how strong a woman can be!
