Wonder Woman Movie Review

Updated on June 1, 2017

Alec is a film critic with a true passion for the film industry & hopes his reviews and articles will help launch his career.

Wonder Woman is the superhero film we all needed, deserved, and wanted. In fact, when the credits began rolling I found myself looking to see when the next showing was. Yeah, it was that good. If it weren't for me having to work I would have seen it again immediately.

The film follows Diana, Princess of Themyscira (Diana Prince for short) as she recounts her origins of how she became the hero she is today. In an attempt to not give much away, let me just say that Diana rescues pilot Steve Trevor after his plane crashes in the ocean just off-shore from her island. He informs Diana and her people that he is a spy and is trying to return some confidential information to his homebase in England. After some deep thinking, Diana decided it was her duty and responsibility to help him and fight along with the others in the Great War.

What impressed me most about the film was how respectful it was, not only to the comics but also to the Lynda Carter fans out there. It kept the innocence and fun from Lynda's version but also brought the rich story and incredible action from the comics to life. By "fun", I don't mean that it was campy or cheesy or felt like it escaped from the 70s. I just mean that it had perfectly timed humor that wasn't over the top or felt like it was trying too hard but rather it felt natural and something that would actually be said in those situations.

Director Patty Jenkins certainly knew what she was doing. She didn't just make a movie, she made the audience feel the movie as well. There were many times that when Diana experienced something for the first time, I felt like I was experiencing those thing for the first time too. From the moment she sees the effects of war up close to her first snowfall, it was all so very refreshing.

In conclusion, I have nothing but praise for Wonder Woman. It exceeded all my expectations and impressed me and gave me hope for the future of the DCEU. I give Wonder Woman a perfect 4 out of 4.

      ERROR; for 'artiles' should read 'articles'.

      There has been so much in the media concerning the latest Wonder Woman, from full length artiles in the press to snippets in the magazines with the emphasis on, that it's been a long time in coming that W.W. sets the precedent in advancing the cause of women. There will be more of this genre to follow where women will show the boys how IT is done.

      Definitely agree. Hopefully Justice League will continue the course.

      I personally gave it an 8 out of 10 definitely a solid rating. I agree Wonder Woman was a great film and the step in the right direction after a disappointing Batman v. Superman.

      Today we get the premiere of Wonder Woman here in 'Olde London towne' after much anticipation and very mixed reviews in the daily press as well as popular magazines. My particular take in this so far, is that the superhero/heroine projects the character of the 'freedom fighter' Shall expect more comments to follow.
