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.

Now this movie has got me to love this DC Comics super-heroine. When Steve Trevor, an U.S. Army fighter pilot, crash-lands on the mystical island of Amazons (warrior women) called Themyscira, the rebellious and headstrong Princess Diana defies her queenly mother by accompanying Trevor back to civilization. Meanwhile, Ares, the god of War, has escaped his imprisonment at the hands of the Amazons and has decided to exact his revenge - intending to start a world war that will not only last for centuries but will wipe out every living being on the planet, starting with the Amazons! It is up to Diana to save her people and the world by using her gifts and becoming Wonder Woman!
This is an awesome movie. It is very well written, and the animation is really cool! One of the best DC movies along with the live-action Batman movie. The story was perfect, funny full of suspense; And really worth the PG-13 rating. I don't have a favorite scene (as I said many times), because I love the WHOLE film - from beginning to end.
