The DCEU was off to a really rough start. The previous three installments had so much potential but didn't deliver and disappointed me, and probably a lot of fans. But as for "Wonder Woman"... this movie is one of the best comic book movies I have ever seen!
The movie does a great use of its nearly 2 and a half hours running time to show us Diana's origins and how she became who she is. From the island of Themyscira, the Amazonian princess finds herself in London, in the period of the first World War, alongside heartthrob pilot/spy Steve Trevor - and his friendly secretary Etta Candy - where she has to face a mad scientist (Doctor Poison), the general of the German Army (General Erich Ludendorff) and even bigger threats.
And while the villains might not be the strongest thing about this movie, Gal Gadot will steal your heart as Wonder Woman, as she is charming and bad ass, with the performances of Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis and others being also noteworthy. But it is Patty Jenkins's direction and the script from the writing team that makes this movie set the bar high for future female-lead (and male-lead) comic book movies.
Filled with heart, humour, action, some romance and war drama, this movie is not just a game-changer for DC's shared movie universe. It's a game-changer for this genre as a whole.
