Did You Know?

Trivia

Steve Trevor sarcastically refers to Diana's island home of Themyscira as "Paradise Island." However, this is a nod to the original name for Wonder Woman's homeland (the island of Amazons) in the comics. In the 1980s, the name of the Amazon Island was changed to Themyscira when comic book writers (George Perez specifically) updated and revamped the character. It has been referred to as Themyscira in all Wonder Woman media since then. Steve Trevor's sarcastic remark was actually written in to nod to fans who would remember the old name (which was used in the television show, as well as comics pre-dating the 80s). See more »

Goofs

When Diana and Steve are having a meeting with the generals and it is discovered Diana can read Dr. Poison's book of formulas, there is a shot where Diana is missing a button on her overcoat. In the very next shot, it is back on but askew, and in the shot after that it is back in alignment with the other buttons. See more »

Wonder Woman is not just the summer's best movie but one of the best superhero movies ever!
6 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cue that awesome theme music! 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 daughter Diana is kindhearted, brave, compassionate, and courageous. She rescues a dashing spy named Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) who informs her people about a greater conflict we know to be World War One. She is appalled by the destruction and onslaught so without question she sets out on a quest to end it.

Gal Gadot is the beautiful beating heart of this movie and perfectly cast as Wonder Woman. She's charismatic and authoritative but not so much that she loses her feminine charm and sense of humor. Yes a DC character being funny! Imagine that! Chris Pine is the love interest/sidekick who could honestly serve as the lead of his own adventure movie. Pine is factory built for these types of tough but clever action roles. His chemistry with Gadot is the best romance in a superhero movie since probably the original Spider-Man movies. The supporting cast is a strong one. Connie Nielsen is dignified as the Queen, Robin Wright is her steely lieutenant, Danny Huston is a slimy Nazi-by-another-name, Elena Anaya is her creepy henchwoman, and Lucy Davis plays the comic relief.

The movie uses the wartime setting to its advantage. No Man's Land becomes Diana Prince's debut as Wonder Woman. German infantry fight Amazons on horseback. Later the finale boils down to a god versus another god. And yes they use the Lasso of Truth. It's so cool! The timing of this movie couldn't be better. It works splendidly as a summer blockbuster at the very least. But it gives hope to female viewers young and old that women can be heroes too. It gives male viewers a chance to see a true ideal feminist hero in action. It also redresses for the mistakes made in the previous installments of the DCEU and honestly makes me more excited for Justice League
