Thus far the "DCU" has been a pale shadow of its Marvel counterpart. In Wonder Woman they have at last found a formula that can at least challenge that supremacy thanks to its well balanced combination of action and likeable characters. Gal Gadot in particular is a charismatic protagonist and the work of Patty Jenkins behind the camera tempers any overt attempt at sexualisation and finds time for some amusing gender-based social observation and "innocent abroad" based humour. In fact it is her very vulnerability that makes the film work and when it inevitably descends into an overblown CGI smackdown during which she displays god-like powers - despite immediately following a twist that actually would have worked much better without it - the plot becomes becomes far less convincing. But …

ok after not being able to catch this movie in theaters I rented it a couple of nights ago and let me tell you I was very pleased with the outcome of it I had a huge blast watching the action here the women were beautiful the humor was a nice touch and the story was good this is a brilliant summer movie or even a weekend movie its good to watch with the family too this has very little objectible content and swearing its just a perfect movie for anyone and everyone I say all hail wonder woman I will probably watch this one again soon no doubt the summer movies do not get much more fun than this was wow what a ride its very long so get some snacks and drinks and prepare to be blown away for the next two hours and 20 minutes cause this isn't a movie but an experience

Well DC, that's much better.
I'm actually quite surprised by this, but glad at the same time. DC didn't have such a great start with it's previous installments and while I'm still anxious about the next upcoming films, I can safely say that "Wonder Woman" is the first decent film in the DC Universe.
The two stand outs of the film are Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. Both the chemistry and the performances were all solid. You love seeing them together and hate to see something bad come between them, which always ends tragically. I wasn't a huge fan of Gal Gadot performance and character in "Batman V Superman", as it didn't fit in the already crowed movie and isn't in the best hands. Here it's better in terms of direction.
"Wonder Woman" is a massive improvement and am very happy DC …

I guess it does take a woman to do a man's job. No doubt that Zack Snyder, David Ayer, Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and the rest of the DC universe but, man, were Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and even Suicide Squad were some depressing affairs. Too dark and mean-spirited for their own goods - DC's initial efforts to emulate the success of the MCU fell woefully short. However, Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot have come along and righted the ship (at least for one movie) as Wonder Woman not only has action, but heart and while there are plenty of darker themes, it manages to strike a much better balance and add in some much-needed levity to the series.
As this is kind of an origin story, of course we have to begin with Diana (aka Wonder Woman) growing up on the all-female island of …

We all were holding our breaths for this one. We wished, prayed, wanted this to be a smart well thought out action packed movie that doesn't make our heroine play second fiddle to anyone. Turns out our fears were unnecessary Thankfully, the writer's an director gave us exactly what we wanted. Smart characters who make thoughtful choices in a world not of black and white decisions. I mean all the characters had good development and their moments added to the story. The special effects and action sequences were fun and sometimes a bit over the top, but this isn't Pale Rider or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, this is Wonder Woman! Any future DCU films should take note about the tone and feeling this movie brings out and toss the goth or anti-hero tone they've been developing. This way …

Gal Gadot plays Diana, Princess of Themyscira, and daughter of Hippolyta. Best known as Wonder Woman.
And by god she kills it in this. Wonder Woman is not merely the best installment of the DCEU so far but it's probably the best DC movie since the Dark Knight trilogy. Wonder Woman is also one of the most entertaining superhero debuts since the first Guardians of the Galaxy. On top of that, there is finally an excellent movie to set the benchmark for future superhero movies about a female hero.
Director Patty Jenkins transports audiences to Paradise Island where Amazon warrior women are tasked to defend mankind from the vengeful Ares, the Greek god of war. Their ruler's daugher Diana is kindhearted, brave, compassionate, and courageous. She rescues a dashing spy named Steve Trevor …
