In the last 12 months (Room was last one) no movie has given me Goosebumps even the ones I’ve given 9/10 but a scene in Wonder Women did and I just thought WOW and got goosebumps all over. The movie as a whole is just Wow, yes there are some things that could’ve been better but what film doesn’t have them. It’s not much under 2 and a half hours long but it didn’t drag and didn’t feel that long. Diane now living in France receives the original of the photo of her during the War (Seen in Batman Vs Superman) with a note saying about hearing the story behind the photo, we then go to the story starting with a young Diane (Lilly Aspell) sneaking away from her schooling to watch the Amazons train on the Island of Themyscira but is caught by her mother Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), as she grows up (Emily Carey) her aunt Antiope (Robin Wright) starts training her in secret. When an Adult, Diane whilst dualling with Antione release a power she didn’t know she had, scared she ran to the cliffs where she sees a plane shot down and dives in to rescue the pilot (Chris Pine). This now takes us into the main part of the film that’s set during the First World War and she joins forces with the pilot she saved – Captain Steve Trevor. From here I won’t mention anymore of the film but many of the scenes are excellent including one that gave me goosebumps. I think Gal portrayed Diane/Wonder Woman perfectly and I honestly can’t picture anyone else in the role, she has the exotic beauty of an Amazon Warrior with hardness she also portrayed in Fast and Furious. I for one can’t wait to she her in the next DC film and actually hope there is another Wonder Women film (though don’t think any are planned just a Justice League one).
This is probably one if not the best DC film and even if not a DC fan this is a truly brilliant film, I think I might have to watch it again and I will certainly getting it when released on Home Media. I just hope Tribe release a Wonder Woman USB stick and already trying to get a special edition Funko Pop Vinyl Figure that’s only available in one chain of stores in the US (Diane Prince in Blue Dress).
Can I justify giving this 10/10, well I don’t see why not, it deserves more than 9/10 and it certainly challenging as one of the best films I’ve seen in my opinion so yes I’m going to give it 10/10.
