In Review: Wonder Woman

Happy Wednesday Loves!!!

This review has been long overdue. So let’s get into it.

Last Monday, Nick and I caught the 8:45 pm showing of Wonder Woman. We had been highly anticipating this movie ever since her appearance in Batman vs. Superman.

It’s no secret that DC is known to drop the ball when it came to the recreation of superhero movies, so we kept our expectations to a minimum.  

The film began and our minds, well specifically my mind was just blown. Wonder Woman genuinely was everything I wanted out of a superhero movie and more. Not only did we get a lot of bad ass action sequence like when she flipped off the tank or went head first into the top of the building to stop a sniper but the director, Patty Jenkins, really infused a lot of emotions along with the action. Each character was portrayed as realistic persons, and we get to know their little idiosyncrasies. 

I loved that they didn’t allow Wonder Woman to save the world right away. The problem I normally have with some superhero movies, although they are superheroes, they seem to have a handle on their powers pretty quickly, and it seemed unrealistic to me. But that wasn’t the case here.

Although Diana was training all her life for the epic battle with Ares, we see her slowly getting familiar with her powers and the real world.

I believe Gal Gadot was the perfect fit for WonderWoman. Her acting was one of the best elements of the movie. Before becoming the leading woman in the film, Gadot was pretty close to ending her acting career. On the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the star said she had been planning to wrap her acting career shortly before Wonder Woman came through because of numerous rejections.

However, the Isreali actress brought the character to life on the big screen, and we love her and what she represented. Fans were even more impressed by her dedication to the film when the revelation was made that she was five months pregnant during reshoots.

If you have watched the movie, what was your best part? Did you think Gal Gadot did an excellent job bringing an all time favorite super heroine to the big screen?
