Let me start off by saying that I had no expectations going into this film. You see I am not a super hero movie type of guy. They are far and few between. The last good one I saw was Batman The Dark Knight. Now that was back in 2008, so as you can see I sort of gave up on this genre a long time ago. You might say Super hero movies are a brand of movie that has now just taken off in popularity in the past decade or so. Leaving the film industry with a lot of new material to work off of. Making it an exciting and fresh new genre for movie watchers and especially for the large population of comic book fans that happen to be out there. So you might ask, why this movie? what made me want to watch this one? Well it did get tons of hype for one thing and secondly some friends of mine who have already seen it in theaters more times than I would ever deem a movie worthy of watching talked me into going. So here I am, and my experience was worth every penny, even though I only paid $4.50. Score!!
At first I wanted to say this movie had a rocky start. I really had to hold my self back from laughing and I chuckled through the first 15 minutes or so. It might have been something to do with all the women and how feminist like they were. Besides that, the little special island all the women fighters were on was pretty cool and I really appreciated how beautiful it looked.
I guess they really didn’t expect for man kind to have such deadly weapons because they literally were no match for the germans with there archaic weaponry. And I didn’t under stand why they would lie so much to Wonder Women unless partially it was just them being as ignorant as I began to notice they were.
Anyways the the movie started to pick up when Wonder Women and Steve, the guy she goes out to save the world with, begin their mission. Most of the comedy can be summed up in Diana/ Wonder Women being ignorant of how the real world works. This act carries a long way and never gets old which had me laughing my butt off.
You don’t really know what sort of powers Wonder Women holds in the begging of the movie. They did a good job in revealing her powers by little bits at a time allowing you not to get board but super excited to see how she was going to conquer the next challenge. Her character is also heart warming which makes you want to root for her. She has a spirit to do good no matter who or what gets in her way and she shows no partiality.
The movie really takes you on a whirlwind of emotions as there is some loss and some victories, joy, love, brotherhood, pain and suffering. The progression of the movie was perfect and there was not time for a dull moment to miss any part of this film. The mystery in wondering if there truly is an Eras god of war who is causing all the evil leaves the watcher wondering how this movie will all end. The ending is quite good as you do not see it coming.
I am happy to say this movie gets the highest score I have yet to give on a movie on my review blog. This one took me by surprise and I would mention that I do not give out scores higher than eights that often but this one deserves it. Wonder Women gets a Nine out of Ten.
