In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when a 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.
The movie starts, in Paris, in the morning as Diana goes to her office in the Louvre Museum. Upon looking at the photo sent to her by Bruce Wayne, her flashback memories ensue (i.e. the entire movie). When the flashback ends, it is now nighttime outside with her on the rooftop in her Wonder Woman outfit. This suggests that she spent the entire day thinking about all that happened 100 years ago. A flashback in her mind, in real time, shouldn't have taken all day. See more »
I used to want to save the world. This beautiful place. But I knew so little then. It is a land of beauty and wonder, worth cherishing in every way. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness simmering within. And mankind? Mankind is another story altogether.

I wasted about 45 minutes before I had to leave. That says a lot for me because I am a cheapskate and had paid for a double feature. I couldn't bear to wait through this one for the other.
It was a pretty film, but as with many others in the current generation, fell way short in content. Kind of a beauty is only skin deep kind of thing. My daddy always told me that it was the heart and soul that counts, and this movie has none of that. It was full of tired clichés, presented in a way that made me feel somehow like the director was a cheesy 1950's misogynist trying to make a buck off of girls and women for which he had no real respect.
It is a wonder women allowed themselves to be represented this way, but hey, maybe it redeemed itself in the second half. I just could not waste the time to find out.
