A film review – Wonder Woman

 

My thoughts on Wonder Woman.

Ever since I watched Lynda Carter I was fascinated by Wonder Woman and till this day I still am. Not that I could ever dress as Wonder Woman but when I grow up I want to be her. She is totally kick arse and well the film was pretty cool although there were times that my believability muscle kicked in and was screaming that’s not possible.

My friend reminded me that she is an Amazons so it is possible. Okay so I’m too realistic and pragmatic need to switch off that part of my brain.

The film is quite long it ran for 2 hrs 21 min but that there was a lot to build the story otherwise it wouldn’t have worked.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was the Princess of the Amazons until she went out to save the world.

I am a Gal Gadot fan ever since I saw her in the Fast and the Furious I’ve liked her. Here she rocked the part of Diana Prince. Seriously to be planned by Megan Fox? The film would have flopped big time.

Our Hero of the film played by Chris Pine, hmmm Chris Pine, I’ve always liked him so another good fit. As well as the secondary characters and the villains in the film. There are funny moments in the film where Diana tries to adapt to her new life with humans. There are sad moments where sacrifices are always made in the name of love or just doing the right thing.  There are moments that make you take a step back and really think about things.

The special effects are amazing which enhanced the film. The action, the fight scenes, the sword scenes all amazing.

Patty Jenkins although she has worked on a couple of projects it’s not a lot that stands out apart from Monster with Charlize Theron and Christina Ricci. It takes a strong female to lead such a strong heroine and Patty hit the nail on the head and I hope to see more of her work. Her execution in bringing strong women to the big screen should be continued.

I never really liked DC I was always a Marvel kind of gal. But Wonder Woman is the exception. Well, and Jason Mamoa playing Aquaman is also an exception.

Gets two thumbs up from yours truly.
