In antiquity, the Amazons defeat the war god, Ares, and Zeus charges them to hold him prisoner as eternally young warriors on the hidden island of Themyscira. Centuries later, US Air Force pilot Steve Trevor is lured to crash land on the island and the distraction of that trespass allows Ares to escape. In response, Princess Diana wins the responsibility to both take Trevor home and recapture the fugitive god. Steve Trevor offers to help and together this disparate pair must not only overcome Ares' efforts to achieve a bloody revenge, but also reconcile their own conflicting world views in an adventure that would be the first for the greatest of the female superheroes.

Before Ares launches a nuclear missile at Themyscira he tells wonder woman that "you're being optimistic if you think I've reached the height of my powers. You see, since I've been gone, man has created a weapon of such awesome destructive force that the use of just one of these weapons feeds me with the psychic energy of 1,000 wars." Then he gets more powerful. This implies that the nuke reached Themyscira and killed thousands of people, but later you see that Steve Trevor destroyed the nuke before it hit Themyscira. Ares is able to draw power acts of violence. When he received strength from the "use of just one of these weapons" he meant that merely launching the nuke (which in itself is an act of war) gave Ares the aforementioned power. This is evident in that when Ares grows stronger, the nuke is seen taking off in the background. See more »
You seem as eager to meet me on the battlefield as you once did in the bedroom, Hippolyta.
I only hope you prove more skilled in this arena, Ares.

I was in two minds of whether this animated version of Wonder Woman would work, and to my delight it absolutely did. The dialogue between the gods at the beginning wasn't as good as that of the rest of the movie, but this is not enough to hurt the movie too much. The animation is wonderful, very like Justice League but that is a good thing in my eyes, with detailed backgrounds, fluid character designs and bold and atmospheric colours. The action is well paced and compelling, and never feels choppy or flabby. The music has a cool and catchy vibe to it, while the writing is funny and witty yet intelligent and sometimes tense and the story is entertaining and suspenseful. The characters are very likable and you do identify them from the get go, the women especially the titular character are really beautiful especially. The voice acting is very dynamic and expressive. All in all, a great movie and I agree it's one of the best DC movies. 9/10 Bethany Cox
