The latest big screen action hero epic from DC Comics introduces Wonder Woman, or Diana, princess of the Amazons, to us useless mortals on planet earth. It seems the Amazons, with their complete woman warrior society, has found a better way to live at peace.
Cathryn and I both like how WW was introduced to the world, near the end of the war to end all wars. Chris Pine is a spy and humorous sidekick to our hero. Neither understands the other’s world, but it’s Wonder Woman who chooses to leave her paradise island to help mankind.
Cinematography, turn-of-the-century costumes, and CGI make this film a big screen delight. It’s also in 3D, but we were quite happy to watch it in two dimensions from the brand-spanking new recliner chairs at Lakeshore Cinemas.
Gal Gadot is about to become the richest female actress in the world with this franchise and the other upcoming super hero movies she’s joining.
Cathryn gives Wonder Woman a 10 and I’m giving it a 9 – only because I thought the story line was a bit sappy at times. It is still a great action flick.
