Wonder Woman 9.9/10 – SPOILER FREE
“No man can cross that land! ”
But hell, a woman can, and she kicks ass.
Wonder Woman is everything we needed but didn’t know we wanted. In a time where many of us feel like we can’t make a difference in this dark world, this film reminds us that we are given an opportunity to stand up for what we believe in and that we can make a difference to help others no matter the race or gender.
Her innocence makes you fall in love with her from the beginning as she silently romances you till the end. You feel like you’ve known her since day one. You’re proud of her when she speaks up, you empathize with her when reality strikes, and you cheer her on when hope is lost.
The movie had a great balance of action and strong storytelling. Plus, DC finally got it right by adding more humor in. They bring in a character with a completely different perspective from Superman / Batman that is all at once refreshing and hopeful for the audience and fans of the DCEU to experience. My husband wanted me to add that this is an important narrative element for people to see, because Diana Prince not only brings out the best in the men surrounding her in this film, but she will do the same for the members of the Justice League come this November when that film debuts. She is what they are not, someone who sees the world for what it can be no matter how many times she has been wronged by it. He concluded, that it may be easy to write off the prior films (Man of Steel / Batman V Superman), for their philosophical musings of what it means to be hero, but they serve a purpose for buttressing the story of Wonder Woman in order to pave the way for them to work as a team.
The attention to detail in this film is absolutely incredible. You see it in the small things like the impact of her strength in her fingers to the details of her armor & weapons in slow-motion scenery that empowers rather than sexualizes.
Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) is an excellent character in the film and his chemistry with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) isn’t forced one bit. He is strong chivalrous man who, I hope, will inspire men after this film.
Patty Jenkins, THANK YOU. Thank you for defying the line. Thank you for proving to Hollywood that females WANT and NEED more movies like this. Thank you for showing that women can make incredible pieces of art that are successful. Thank you for empowering not only women, but men as well with this movie. I am in awe and I cannot wait to watch this over and over and over again.
