Wonder Woman - Film Review
Again long time no blog - sorry! I really need to do more posts although not sure how many reading them - become a Follower so I have an idea.
Anyway went to see the new DC film Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot in the main role of Wonder Woman/ Princess Diana of the Amazon's.
The film starts with Diana growing up and learning the history of the world and the God's and the Amazon's. This was a great scene showing the God Zeus being betrayed and having to fight his son Ares the God of War who wants to corrupt mankind.
It shows Diana training to be a warrior on the Amazonian island which is hidden from sight so Ares doesn't find them.
This changes when World War 1 pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crash lands and she saves him.
Once she finds out the world beyond the peaceful idyllic island is at war she sets off with him to help stop the war. She thinks it's Ares causing the conflict and to stop the war she has to kill him with a God slayer sword.
The film moves at a fast pace with plenty of humour mixed in which hits the spot more than Batman Vs Superman dark bleaker tones.
With a twist near the end as to who Ares really is this is one of the better Superhero movies I've seen in a long time. Even better than the first Captain America film which is similar due to its war setting.
It helps that Gal Gadot is hot and nice eye candy although I thought sometimes she had a funny shape head.
Overall - So far the best DC film with humour, heart and a strong female lead hope Justice League film follows suit.
Score - 9/10
