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.

Im a big fan of the DC universe.Though I have never been a big fan of wonder woman, never hated her,but never saw anything special in her.So when I decided to watch this I never thought it would be this good. As of now this is one of my favorite animated DC movies.
This is basically wonder womans origin story,and her fight against Ares, the god of war. The story is great and does a great job showing wonder womans interaction with the "real" world and her relationship with both her amazonian sisters and men. The story also does a good job introducing the mythology of the Amazons. The voice acting is excellent and both animation and action is on a very high level. I personally loved the intricacy of the action sequences. While kinda short the movie very fun the whole way.
After watching it,it saddens me that this story was not made into a live action movie because I believe it would be a worthy addition to the DC comics short movie list and a great way to introduce this character to a broader audience.
