When a cocky industrialist's efforts to raise an ancient Chinese temple leads him to be seriously wounded and captured by enemy forces, he must use his ideas for a revolutionary power armor in order to fight back as a superhero.
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.

Etta Candy is a character from the comic books. However, the modern version in that medium is a heavy set military officer with short curly hair who quickly becomes a respectful friend of Wonder Woman. See more »
When Ares increases his power, he boasts he is as strong as Hercules. That is the Roman name of the demigod while all other mythical figures in the film are identified by the proper Greek names of Greek mythology. Though technically the proper name of Heracles would have applied, the source material of the comics has a long of intermixing the names of Roman and Greek deities in The Pantheon. 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.

Watch out, Hollywood, this is what WW should looks alike!
Like many other viewers before, I didn't really cared about the character of Wonder Woman before the movie. She seemed to be pretty much an relict from the early days (1940's) of the upcoming feminism movement and therefore irrelevant or even "boring" (to state a overrated Hollywood pretty-face). But that movie really sold me, not just because of the wonderful, old-school animation the big, amazing fight scenes (Amazons vs. Monsters of the Greek mythology, Amazons vs. Zombie Amazons and so on), the cool mythological background and story that progresses out of it but mostly because of the characterization of Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor. Hell, even the bad guys and evil doers had their reasons and motivations and that's just good storytelling. However, Wonder Woman is portrayed as a kind hearted, sometimes naive, lovable female who's also a absolute bad ass 'cause of her heritage, if she needs to. I also loved that the movie didn't took itself too serious and fooled around with some of the more ridiculous things regarding the WW character (like WW considering Heels, Amazons referred as "armed supermodels", invisible missiles and pretty much everything with the lasso). I can't talk about the original voice cast 'cause I've seen that movie German dubbed (but IMO the German cast was spot on!). My only complaint is, that this movie was just too short. However, if DC should finally be able to produce a Wonder Woman-movie for the big screen, this is what it should feel and look alike!!!
