Wonder Woman

{5/5} “It’s not about deserve. It’s about what you believe.”

Wonder Woman, released in 2017

Diana grows up on the island of the Amazons, knowing little of the outside world. When a man crashes his plane into the water off the shore she rescues him. She is shocked to discover that the man, Steve, is fighting in the War to End All Wars. Diana must leave her home and defeat Ares, the god of war, whom she believes has caused this war.

It’s an origin story, a World War I story, a love story, and an action adventure.

Themyscira is stunningly beautiful, and the war is terribly ugly.

It’s much better than any of the previous 3 DC movies. For one thing, it has a sense of humour. It’s also more subtle than most superhero movies.

Gal Gadot is perfect as Diana, from naive to sophisticated.

Stars Chris Pine and Robin Wright. Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster). The music by Rupert Gregson-Williams makes use of Wonder Woman’s theme from Batman v Superman.

The previous movie I watched in the DCEU is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
