Wonder Woman is fantastic entertainment. Not just from a comic book movie perspective, but from a sheer cinema perspective. The film packs an intriguing story, wrapped around World War I, which in and of itself, is a unique setting. Big kudos to director Patty Jenkins, who delivered a comic book movie, which transcends the genre. Wonder Woman, is actually a character study. And I'm not just talking about Diana Prince. This is a character study about the human race; the horrors we are capable of, but also the hope and goodness we are capable of. There is some spectacular action set-pieces in here, as is to be expected. However, what really shines, are the quieter character moments, we get between Diana, and Steve Trevor. Gadot and Pine, have magnificent chemistry together, and both are a delight to watch. The film does have some slow spots at times, but all in all, it's a fairly evenly paced film. Gadot, owns this role, and I can't wait to see more of her as Wonder Woman. The film is highly entertaining, and while I am a one of the rare few who truly enjoyed Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman is by far, the best entry in the DCEU to date. Here's hoping they can keep the momentum going.
