Filmmaker James Cameron, known for his movies that feature strong female action heroes, drew the ire of many Wonder Woman fans when he claimed that the film, while good, wasn't particularly groundbreaking and even a step backwards because of the way it sexualized its main character to appeal to teenage boys. He elaborated by saying that putting a formed model (Gal Gadot) into a skimpy, form-fitting costume had already been done in the 1960s, for example with Raquel Welch in movies like The Magic Christian (1969). Director Patty Jenkins retorted by stating that it should make no difference what Wonder Woman looks like; being strong is not a privilege of hard, tough and troubled women, so she has the right to be beautiful, attractive and powerful at the same time. Cameron stuck to his opinion, stating that he had purposely de-sexualized the Sarah Connor character (Linda Hamilton) in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) to focus on her personality rather than her looks, although he admitted that his initial reaction was "probably a little bit simplistic".

General Erich Ludendorff was head of the German Imperial General Staff. It was he, not von Hindenberg, who in the Fall of 1918 advised the Kaiser to accept the armistice as the German army could not stop the combined Anglo-American army from taking Berlin. The reason for this mistake was probably that the producers thought Hindenberg's name would be more recognizable to the 21st Century movie goer than Ludendorff. At the end of WWI, Hindenberg was still a field commander. See more »

I really enjoyed this movie and thought Patty Jenkins did an amazing job. DCEU movies in my opinion haven't been that great, but I think this one is a lot better than the others. It was cool to finally see a good female superhero movie. Even though Gal Gadot's acting isn't stellar in my opinion, I think she's really charming and fit the roll nicely. I watched this in a history through film class for WWI, so we looked at comparisons during the battle scenes with gases, trenches, etc. Although their isn't a magical pill you break open to give you super-human strength in real life, some of the other stuff was pretty accurate. I haven't seen other work directed by Patty Jenkins, but I'm hoping the next Wonder Woman installment will be just as good.
