Review: Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman
05.29.2017
9 10

PLOT: As a young girl, Diana - also known as Princess of the Amazons - wanted to be a warrior and fight for good. Years later, when a young pilot makes a crash landing near the secret island paradise where she and her people live, Diana finds her chance to do good and help save the world from the “war to end all wars.”

REVIEW: There is something special about the big screen origin tale of WONDER WOMAN. This  adaptation has not only given Gal Gadot the chance to truly shine, but also gives fans a fresh  and intoxicatingly magical vision courtesy of director Patty Jenkins. It’s a bold and thrilling adventure that manages to excite, even when the action is not in the forefront. This is part of what makes this long awaited feature film so successful. The quiet moments are sublime. We are given real flesh and blood characters, ones we are rooting for each and every step of the way. It’s not easy to get a room full of critics cheering, but guess what, they certainly did here.

All her life, Diana (Gadot) wanted to fight along with her fellow Amazon warriors. Against her mother Queen Hippolyta's (Connie Nielson) wishes, she takes up training with the fierce General Antiope (Robin Wright). All the training comes in handy when a mysterious pilot named Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) wrecks his plane just offshore escaping from Germans. Unfortunately, Trevor brings the war with him courtesy of several German soldiers. After a stunning beach battle, Diana sets her sights on going back and helping her new found friend fight the war. For Diana, this means destroying the mytholgical Ares, the God of War, who she believes is responsible for the bloodshed going on in the world. Once she gets close to the devestation however, she comes to realize that there is more to the story than she was told.

As good as she was in BVS, Gal Gadot is a revelation here. The actress brings a real sense of innocence and genuine promise, and yes, incredible strength and fight. Gadot brings that and more to the role. She effortlessly gives Diana incredible strength, humor and heart, as well as a fire in her eyes as she heads to battle. Every single element of Wonder Woman is so beautifully captured in her performance. There is so much here that I cannot wait to see how she grows in future adventures. Of course she is stunning to look at, but she is much more than that. If you had any doubts about her pulling off her own film, you can rest assured that she carries the torch perfectly.

Jenkins - working from a screenplay credited to Allan Heinberg - presents the early years of Diana and the most important influences in her young life. Her mother, Queen Hippolyta, has no desire to train her daughter being the only child left on the island. However, General Antiope is convinced she has something special, knowing that the world outside their safe haven may one day bring the violence of man - or worse - into their serenity. This could have easily been tedious to watch yet another series of training montages, thankfully it is a joy to take in. This early sequence explores just who Diana is, and why she carries this drive to save anyone she can - whether they want it or not.

As impressively handled as the introduction to Diana is, Jenkins takes on the action with ease. There are several impressive moments and she keeps things moving. One sequence in which she marches into a barrage of bullets, right in the line of fire, is just incredible. This is where we really get to see what Diana has in store and it is jaw dropping. For me, this is the moment that Diana truly embraces her heroism. It is fearless. It is awe inspiring. Instead of fully committing to huge special effects, there is a slightly grounded sense of danger involved. Whether the bullets ricochet off of her bracelets, or she uses her golden lasso to force men to tell the truth, the trademarks of Wonder Woman never feel silly or contrived. And when there are laughs, they are certainly intended and earned.

There is a minor issue, one involving the final act. It’s tricky to explain without giving much away, but there is a moment where you think the film may end in a very impactful and unusual way. This involves one the main villains in particular. Now this is not to say the bad guys don’t work, in fact they are all intriguing. Yet, the filmmakers had the chance to do something really surprising. Thankfully, this slight twist didn’t affect my viewing much at all. And frankly, when it comes to pleasing a larger audience, this third act will be an easier sell and have fans cheering.

Much of the humor comes from Gadot’s amazing chemistry with co-star Chris Pine. No stranger to summer blockbusters, Pine is excellent as Steve Trevor. The two actors share a rich and indelibly charming relationship. There is no forced romance, nor does the humor overtake the darker forces that the two must face. It also helps that the dialogue between the two feels very genuine for that period. In many ways they share what could almost be described as something you would have heard Clark Gable and Claudette Colbet share in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT. Frankly, this may be Pine’s best performance to date.

There is much to love here; and I didn't even get into the terrific score from Rupert Gregson-Williams, or the scene stealing supporting performance from Lucy Davis. Yet, the most impressive thing about what Jenkins accomplishes is by making this a film for everyone. This is not about gender, but it is one that women and girls are likely to embrace. For many viewers, this is destined to be the best superhero movie of all time - and frankly, it’s very high on my own list. Ultimately WONDER WOMAN brings a powerful voice to the summer blockbuster; one filled with hope, inspiration and more than enough thrills to satisfy everyone.

Haven't seen it yet but I am worried...

This movie does look amazing but by judging by what all the critics and people are saying it exceeds and is beyond amazing and the greatest superhero film ever, this honestly has me worried. Because normally when everyone loves a movie it turns out to be real shit, most of the time. I can't wait to see it though next week.

First of all, BvS was a mess. We didn't get scenes with Superman saving people. There was no hope to balance the hatred coming from Batman. And it is clear that Snyder wanted a Batman who was going around killing people. 5/10

MoS was actually better. Zod was a great villain. And all the death and destruction was paid off in BvS. 7/10

I don't know why people complain about Suicide Squad. Margot Robbie and Will Smith were good leads. And the Joker seemed genuinely dangerous. Captain

We is great. I cringed at the bar scene that introduced the WWI version of the Howling Commandoes. But Gal Had it as Wonder Woman was almost perfect. In the fighting scenes it looked like she was a young Linda Carter. 9/10

Glad to hear it, hoping it will be good. I've been a comic-book fan since forever (I'm 43) and love DC and Marvel equally. But with all the shit DC has taken about their recent films, and with GOTG 2 being severely underwhelming, I'm really looking forward to this maybe being the movie of the summer!

First of all, I'm really excited about this movie and think this is a nice spoiler free review. Second, not getting all the negative comments. I get if you're not interested in the movie, but why troll the reviewer? He's just giving his take on the movie. His opinion. He's not telling you to like it or dislike it. He's just a human being giving us his opinion but also telling us to see it for ourselves, if we're interested. And for those of you whining that it's sexist or anti-man to

There are plenty of male action heroes for you to fantasize about or live vicariously through.

Good news, glad it's good. I doubted it considering the DC movies thus far have been mediocre at best. I'll likely end up seeing this this weekend then.

As a fan of WW, I'm happy the movie is getting good praise. While I wait until a weekday to see since crowds ruin the movie experience, I think I'll make a trip to the theater.

I am curious if this movie was able to set itself apart and get good reviews because it's a standalone DC without the burden trying to bridge future DC films.

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Holiday! *love and peace*

This is looking VERY good. The reviews don't have that "not as bad as we feared but their is s strong female lead so we must give it a good review" that came with Ghostbusters. Nor are they the rote "best Marvel movie ever" that sometimes seem like they're written before they see the film. The reviews look honest and admit it ain't perfect but it is a very good and distinctive film.
We'll see Friday (Thursday night for some lucky ones.)

Don't really go to theaters anymore because I can't stand how people act. But I'll be getting this when it's released on BD.

Don't get your hopes up for the future

I see a lot of people saying be wise this movie was good, not great, they have restored faith in the DC universe. This movie works because it doesn't have Snyder's shit all over it making it a dark and humorless film. Snyder still probably ruined Justice League and his involvement with Flash and causing each director to quit is still troublesome. He let Patty work her magic here so the movie isn't bad.

You do know the story for WW was written by Zack and he produced this as well? Also the fact that he was the one that cast Gal and pushed for Patty to direct. Zacks fingerprints are still all over this film.

Half, it's still obvious how Snyders impact and forced "style" ruined a lot of the movie. It's not bad but the forceful use of shoddy green screen and slow motion really dampen a bunch of scenes. Also, he didn't come up with the WW1 setting...

Sure Zack deserves credit for getting the right people for the job, producing it and helping write the story (with two other writers). It is also the fact that Zack didn't direct this is why it worked out so well.

@Arcade88 hate to be that guy but Zack was part of the reason for the WW1 setting.

"When Heinberg and producer Zack Snyder were first breaking down the story structure for the film, WWI was appealing for a few reasons. “It’s the first time we had an automated war,” Heinberg says."

They're pandering. JoBlo himself did the review because people don't trust Bumbray. So they bring in the big guy to write a good review, whether the movie is good or not, because people trust his opinion.
It's not as a good as people are saying and Chris Pine was seriously the best thing about the movie.

It's funny... when Warner Bros announced their DCEU slate, Wonder Woman was one of the films I was least looking forward to.

I pondered if WW, with such a rocky road to the big screen, would be the DC equivalent to the Hulk. - won't work as a lead in her own film, but a highlight when supporting in others.

Looks like WW is going to turn out to be the best film of the franchise!

I still have high hopes for Aquaman though...

I admit I definitely balked at Wonder Woman coming as well. Yet from the first Trailer on it seemed like it was going to be amazing. A mystical version of Captain America First Avenger. Aquaman also has me majorly pumped, which will probably more closely correlate to the other worldliness of Thor. Either way looking forward to this.

It's funny that I and many other never been called sexists while criticise/dislike Ghostbusters, probably because we chose to use more words and other sentences outside of "shit movie", "it sucks", "fuck this reboot" etc.

Ghostbusters got mixed reviews. Which is pretty much how I felt about it. Mixed. Wonder Woman, so far, is getting stellar reviews across the board. Now, since most of us haven't seen it yet, I don't think any of us are prepared to comment on whether or not those reviews reflect the films quality in our own eyes.

There is nothing about this movie that excited me. If this were the same movie with a male lead character, it wouldn't be betting 1/10 the hype his mediocre looking movie is getting. Put me in for "pass" on this one

I've read that the tone of this film is much like other male led films like Thor and Captain America, but maybe a bit better...those male led films got respectable reviews. I think there's probably a decent female led superhero film here, and some people aren't comfortable with that. Why that is, I can't say.

Of course critics will like it...

Failing to realize that at least in the US, enough people spoke and said that they didn't want feminism to run rampant. Of course, Hollywood and the ultra liberal media will keep their heads in the sand and never learn anything from their collective failure.

I hate SJW's as much as the next guy, but jesus man thats pathetic. How does Wonder Woman, who mind you has been around since 1941 by the way, automatically equal Feminism unless in your mind every woman ought be in dem dar kitchen. I like the character and always have, but I detest in your face biases regardless of what they are. Feminism is absolutely disgusting currently in so much as they say they want equality yet practice misandry. However a female hero or character doesn't automatically

Watch Supergirl that is nonsense PC SJW garbage. They insult men at least a half a dozen times an episode and have to RAH RAH RAH girl power every 10 seconds. But Ripley kicked ass, Seline in Underworld kicked ass, Sarah Connor kicked ass, and no once did they mention women are superior to me. PC SJW shit is all in how the character develops and their lines, no just their mere presence.

I guess I'm confused by your comment. Are you saying that having a female led superhero film is inherently feminist, and therefore a bad film? Also are you saying that having an empowered female character is inherently a liberal idea? I mean, men have had Superman, Batman, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Ant Man, Thor, Spider-man, Green Lantern, Doctor Strange...you get the idea. Having one female superhero movie doesn't exactly balance the playing field, much less push for some man-hating

And also, the only other female superhero movies i can think, Catwoman and Electra, got horrible reviews. So let's just try to keep a sense of perspective here.

Is Supergirl really that bad? Can't say I really watch it but as much as I love Melissa Benoist that would be a shame.

Perfect Gentleman yeah its pretty damn bad. Its not quite as bad in the second season as the first but it was downright offensive to men in the first season. And even int he second season they definitely trump girls are better than boys. So much so they emasculated an unseen superman in season one finale, and did it again in the season 2 finale just so Supergirl could beat everything without a man's help.

The less movies Chris is allowed to review on here, the better.

This is a HUGE win for DC over Marvel, as they are now the first to have a female director/star led movie to open to critical and most definitely financial success, DC will finally get to see the light. From reading the review, it sounds like a lot of time was spent on character development and I hope the rest of the universe follows suit.

P.S---It would be awesome to see a scene of superman dressed as batman fight somebody, just a random thought.

So glad this broke the streak of suck from DC. I've been saying that I was anticpating WW and Aquaman more than all of the rest of the DC movies. Glad this was as badass as it looked. Hopefully that continues on to Aquaman.

Im a little weary of Aquaman still, it all comes down to how the underwater scenes are gonna play out, will have to wait for the trailer. But just watching Aquamans teaser in JL2 promos, it gave me chills that it could be great.

Chris Pine saves this movie from being a humorless turd

Chris is the saving grace of this movie. It isn't a dry, humorless average DC movie. Best one yet and I hope this continues forward. I hated MoS and BvS but enjoyed this one.

quick question, is their actual color in this movie? Past DC films were bleak as hell, but from the trailers, paradise island looks STUNNING, then it seems we get dreary again for the rest of the movie....

It's not bright, it's still an oddly bleak and digitally dulled movie but it works with the setting. WW1 shouldn't be bright like a marvel movie.
