Film Review: Wonder Woman
Share This Article:
Wonder Woman is the action-packed female superhero film to clear our skin and water our crops.
There was a feeling of trepidation around the release of this newest instalment to the DC Extended Universe. Not only were there pressures from DC and Warner Bros themselves due to their spotty history with critical responses to those last two DC superhero movies, but also for female led superhero movies and female directed movies. Fortunately, Wonder Woman completely crushes it. On a completely visual level, Patty Jenkins and her team created some stunning work. Jenkins knows where to focus to show the power and strength of Diana Prince’s character and cinematography across the film is straight-up beautiful. The soundtrack was intense and emotive, and silence is used with wonderful effectiveness to make some hard scenes even more heart-wrenching. But the story of Diana’s that was told is something wonderful. In Batman Vs Superman, you see a Wonder Woman who has been burnt by the world of Man before and struggled to cope with the duality of the people around her. Wonder Woman takes us back to a time where Diana was young, saw the world in black and white morality with such a naive expectation of the world outside her island that you just know that it’s going to come crashing down. She’s earnest in her beliefs, outspoken and honest.
Gal Gadot does an amazing job of bringing to life this character that is so important to so many people.
