#SundayReviews: "Wonder Woman" [Updated]


Princess Diana of Themiscrya has finally received her own summer blockbuster movie, but you probably know her better by the name Wonder Woman.

Starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, and Lucy Davis this movie is set during the War to End All Wars, AKA: World War I (you can already tell that the first title was a bit presumptuous don't it?) and shows her origin story waaaay before her appearance in Batman vs Superman.

From Google:

"Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot who tells her about the massive conflict that's raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny."



So how was it? Overall it was good, with excellent action pieces and good humour!

Wonder Woman is a very hopeful hero who inspires others (you know, like how Superman used to before the DCEU). Even though at times she seemed too naive and hopeful about the world (with good reason!) she was never sickeningly annoying regarding it like Supergirl in her TV series.

There were some cool action scenes, but the dark scenes were too dark so I couldn't see all the action properly. Also, the final conflict was a bit of a let down if you ask me... [EDIT: It seems I have Carib 5 cinema's dark screen to blame for this, as rewatching it at AMC (Dolby Atmos is awesome by the way!) I could see everything clearly, which made the action scenes MUCH more enjoyable.]

Still A GOOD WATCH!

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
