Wonder Woman: Movie Review

PG-13, 141 minutes
Release Date: June 2, 2017

    Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.(From IMDb)


     I was SO terrified when I heard this was finally happening. I never in my wildest dreams thought they would be able to do her justice. But Patty Jenkins did a WONDERFUL job and I could not be happier!
     To set up for the Justice League movie, DC Comics has put together an origin story for all of the characters that will be featured. They start with Wonder Woman, who was once Diana Prince. It tells the story of how she found out what she was truly meant to be!
     I have to say, for the most part I was impressed. I was a little surprised by the way they went about the story, but I'm glad they told it that way. I'm even more impressed that they got her origin story right. Of all the things to be worried about, that's one of the things that worried me most. I wanted to be sure the world knew how cool she really is.
     Besides that, the acting was FANTASTIC. I LOVED Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Definitely a next generation Lynda Carter! And her supporting characters, Chris Pine, and everyone else did such great jobs too. I even caught myself gripping the hell out of my husband's hand once I saw what would happen at the end. They did a fantastic job in sucking me into the story.
     The ONLY thing I wasn't a fan of, was all the damn CG! But really, what's a superhero  movie without it? I just wish it wasn't as noticable. It made the action scenes less exciting to me. But being honest, I expected it. Even superhero movies that have been done a dozen times (SpiderMan!) have problems with their CG so I didn't take it too much to heart.
     I can admit DC I am impressed, Now please listen to my plea and take the same care with Aquaman and Justice League!
Overall,  I give this
Real rating 4.5 but I rounded up!
