I finally got to witness the first hit of 2017! DC Comics finally outdid itself and gave us a story contrary to their usual. But I surmise, the character of Wonder Woman is generally like that, which aids to the story to be more on a luminous structure.
I wouldn’t concur on the fact that it is an action-packed flick but I would say that, at a latter stage of the film, it gets quite applause-worthy. Moreover, it is majorly content based, since it is the first film based on DC Comics’ Wonder Woman and is mainly introductory.
Moving on, I would emphasize on the fact that Gal Gadot is possibly the best match to the character, the producer/director/casting team could ever find. Her posture, her smile, her height, her face dimension, her body structure, the way she carries herself, her confidence, her sincerity AND her acting is pretty marvelous and befitting.
WW elevates a bit later (as I mentioned earlier) but when it does, it will bring you to the edge of your seat. Not to mention, there are some superlative performances by the supporting cast, Lilly Aspel (as the 8-year-old Diana/Wonder Woman), Chris Pine (as Steve Trevor), David Thewlis (as Sir Patrick Morgan) and Elena Anaya (as Isabel Maru/Dr. Poison).
Patty Jenkins, the director, who has a very few films under her banner, surprises everybody with her stellar work behind the camera and understands how to create that aura which promotes the special place for womanhood in the world.
