Trivia

Director Patty Jenkins is a big fan of Wonder Woman (1975) and wanted Lynda Carter and Lyle Waggoner, who played Diana and Steve in that show, to make cameo appearances in the film. However, Waggoner had retired from acting and while Carter was still active, she had conflicting schedules. See more »

Goofs

When the Germans attack Themyscira early in the film, they are in small boats launched from a larger boat, maybe a cruiser or destroyer, that has penetrated the island's protection. As the Germans and Amazons fight, the larger ship is never seen again. See more »

Exactly the type of movie that the DC Universe has needed for some time
1 June 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Wonder Woman is a superhero film starring Gal Gadot in the title role and the fourth installment in the DC Extended Universe. Directed by Patty Jenkins (2003's Monster), the film not only redeems the DC Universe of some of its previous missteps, but also breathes some new life into the superhero franchise as a whole.

In 1918, the Amazonian princess Diana (Gal Gadot) trains with her fellow warrior sisters on the isolated island nation of Themyscira. One day, an American pilot named Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crash lands near the island. After being rescued by Diana, Steve tells her and the other Amazonians of the outside world and of a "war to end all wars" currently being waged by the human race. Refusing to allow the death and carnage to continue, Diana decides to leave with Steve and fight alongside him to hopefully put a stop to the evil people responsible for this war.

Featuring a well paced plot and some creatively choreographed action scenes, Wonder Woman is exactly the type of movie that the DC Universe has needed for some time, considering some of the poor creative decisions that were made in its three predecessors. There was also a good balance of humour scattered throughout the story, very much in the vein of some Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, but never so much that it feels forced and tacked on at the last minute. Gal Gadot's performance in the eponymous role is great, her acting range has improved significantly since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. My only real complaint is that the film does follow a typical "superhero origin story" format and does little to detract from that. However, considering how interesting the main character is, this does not draw away too much enjoyment from the overall film.

I rate it 8.5/10
