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.

This film is loosely based on the first storyline of the second ongoing "Wonder Woman" comic book series in 1987, "Gods and Mortals" by George Perez, Len Wein and Greg Potter. See more »
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. 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.

Would just like to disagree with previous comments because i really enjoyed this movie.This time around Wonder Woman was not portrayed as pageant queen with a rope but as a powerhouse warrior.She is not a bouncy beauty queen in a swim suit,she is an amazon.They are born for battle and raised to fight for the greater good.This movie stayed so true to the origin and even gave the characters more personality.She is one kick ass broad and her character in the film could have just as easily been male.Wonder Woman is an icon and a very strong woman who while being kind hearted also knows how to be tough when needed.i recommend this movie to anyone who loves comics and the character and I'm a really picky person when it comes to my DC characters.
