I have to say that I am not disappointed in this movie at all! First off this movie had the necessary amount of action that was to be expected from an origin story. Writers Zack Snyder, Allan Heinberg, and Jason Fuchs did great. The direction of Patty Jenkins has by far made this movie one of my favorites by DCEU so far. It hasn’t been an easy ride for DC in the wake of Marvels releases at all. The casting I think was key in the success as much as the writing. Gal Gadot’s first appearance in Batman v. Superman restored my faith in the franchise’s ability to scout out the right talent to bring the roles to life.
Gal first appearance was in the The Fast and the Furious franchise. Her role in this franchise by the way, is not interesting for me. But to be fair i don’t care for the franchise in itself. Gal gave a surprisingly convincing Diana. There haven’t been a slew of Diana’s before her on screen. The only context of reference we have had literally is Lynda Carter. Mind you the 1976 Wonder Woman featuring Carter was definitely one of my favorite TV series from that era. I am absolutely happy with the finished product of this version of Wonder Woman.
There were some minor changes to the story Which i didn’t think were blatant, too bad or noticeable. Overall, I had a good feeling about the movie with all the previews and trailers. The movie had a bit of everything, her origin story, one particular advisory, and love story. I would recommend seeing this movie if you are a fan of the comic. I would also recommend it if you’re not. The sequel should be promising and hopefully DC will follow this movie up with others just like this. I would hate to see a menagerie of horrid movies to follow.
