'Wonder Woman' is a stylish, epic success for DC Extended Universe. Although I tend to steer clear of superhero movies of any kind, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and am very much looking forward to see what the DCEU has to offer next. While the first 20 minutes of the film seem offbeat and quite forced with cliches, the film quickly picks itself up as the plot progresses, and being a length of two hours and twenty minutes, the flawed beginning is quickly forgotten by the reaming two hours which is nothing short of wonderful. Gal Gadot owns the role of ‘Wonder Woman’ and was definitely a smart casting choice, however it’s really Chris Pine who steals the movie for me. However, it’s the evident chemistry between the two leading actors that contribute to the greatness of this film. The other characters in the film are all great too, particularly the psychotically evil Doctor Poison. The fight scenes are nothing short of epic and are handled really well by director Patty Jenkins, despite some scenes having a little too much of CGI. It’s movies like ‘Wonder Woman’ that are meant to be watched with great surround sound and a high-definition television in order to enjoy the film to it’s greatest extent.
Rating: 4/5 stars
