Wonder Woman: “Wonderful”

I think this is a terrific super-hero film with just the right balance of plot, action, special effects, and character development.  It’s the best super-hero movie I’ve seen since “Iron Man.”  I consider it a “MUST-SEE.”  The Wonder Woman character was created by William Moulton Marston in 1941, and she stands the test of time!

Diana, the daughter of Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), is a young girl living on the hidden island paradise of Themyscira, which was created by the gods of Olympus.  Only female Amazon warriors live there.  Diana desperately wants to be trained as a warrior by her aunt, Antiope (Robin Wright), but her mother is opposed to it.  Eventually, however, Diana receives extensive training.  She is now a young woman by the time Steve Trevor’s WWI plane crash-lands in the ocean, very close to the island – which now exposes Themyscira.  Diana saves Steve, but the Germans are in close pursuit and a battle soon rages between the Amazons and the Germans.  After the battle, Steve informs the Amazons that WWI is happening and millions of lives are being lost.

The Amazons’ mission is to bring peace to the world.  Diana/Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) decides to leave Themyscira with Steve in order to stop the war.  Diana believes the war is being orchestrated by Ares, the God of War, and if she can find and kill him, WWI will end.  Will Wonder Woman and Steve succeed?

Gal Gadot is phenomenal and I can’t imagine anyone doing any better.  Gadot’s Wonder Woman, with multiple super-powers, is not uni-dimensional, but is beautiful, intelligent, naive, sexy, empathic, vulnerable, smart, loyal and courageous.  (Gadot is also now in my “Beautiful Jewish Women Hall of Fame!”)

The film must be seen on the BS!  If I were to quibble, it could have been about 10 minutes shorter, but I didn’t care.  I sure hope there’s a sequel!

I have loved the movies ever since I saw “The Wizard of Oz” as a young boy. When Beatle-mania hit the USA, Rock-N-Roll was my greatest passion, but I haven’t enjoyed the current music scene nearly as much over the past 15 years, so that void has been filled by film. In college and med school, I would see movies with my friends and we would stay up late into the night chatting about them. I still love seeing movies with friends and then having dinner to discuss them. This blog evolved out of my desire to tell my movie-loving friends about movies I thought they would enjoy. The blog allows me to do this in a fun way and to reach movie fans everywhere.

    I agree that the movie should be a little shorter! For example, they made a fuss about the secretary protecting the sword and shield with her life and they never followed up on that. Obviously they made some mistakes already trying to make it shorter. Big screen is quite immersive.
