After a dogfight with a Nazi plane, U.S. Air Force Steve Trevor crashlands on an uncharted island in the Bermuda Triangle. Paradise Island is inhabited only by women, and their existence has been kept a secret for thousands of years. Learning of the Nazi threat to humanity, the Amazon princess, Diana, is chosen to accompany Trevor back to the United States to battle the Third Reich. Garbed in a skimpy red, white & blue costume and armed with a magic lasso that forces anyone within its grasp to tell the truth, Diana uses her powers as Wonder Woman to battle the forces of evil.

Did You Know?


The original Greek legend of the Amazons differs greatly from the concept in the movie and comic book. According to the original story, the Amazons were a tribe of fierce women warriors who lived along the Black Sea in Asia Minor, or modern day Turkey. What made them so noteworthy was that the women archers would cut off one of their breasts so as to not interfere with their use of the bow. The word Amazon in Greek means "without a breast".

During the "Bullets and Bracelets" sequence, when Diana's opponent is injured and grabs her wrist, you can clearly see the remote control, used to make the bracelets flash, that she is holding in her hand. See more »


Diana: You wanted to see me, Mother?
Queen Hippolyte: You may leave his care to others.
Diana: Well thank you, but I would prefer to stay on until I'm certain that he's well.
Queen Hippolyte: That was a command, not a request.
Diana: Am I allowed to ask why?
Queen Hippolyte: You are very intelligent.
Diana: I am your daughter.
Queen Hippolyte: There are so many things you don't know. Do you have any idea of your age?
Diana: By what standard?
Queen Hippolyte: By the earth's clock.

The Definitive Wonder Woman
12 November 1999 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

Considering that it's budget was miniscule compared to the Superman and Batman films, this TV movie is fun from the get-go. It is true to the spirit and tone of the 1940s comic, has a great supporting cast and, of course, Lynda Carter. Yes, it's campy at times, but it's in good fun. Cloris Leachman is not exactly Hippolyta, the warrior queen, but she has her fine moments too, especially when her masked daughter wins the tournament.
