Wonder Woman

07 Jun

wonder-woman2

I didn’t realize how much I had needed this movie until I actually saw it.

I grew up with an uncle who had no problem introducing me to the likes of Batman and comic superheroes. While we focused more on the Dark Knight himself and the X-Men from Marvel, Wonder Woman was there in the background. I really got a sense of her when I had started watching the Justice League cartoon. With that said, I was really excited the more I heard about the Wonder Woman movie when it was getting closer to the release date.

Superhero movies are pretty much the norm now in theaters, and I remember being excited when I first heard about the giant plan to bring the Avengers together in an epic series of movies. Yet, while the movies that I saw were excellent, I got a bit burned out with the series. I saw the first two Iron Man movies, Captain America, Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy and… I think that’s it for the Marvel movies, in all honesty. I would like to catch up one day.

Wonder Woman was the first of the DC movies that I saw, which is a bit surprising considering how much of a Batman fan I am. Of course, I heard that the DC movies were a bit weak compared to Marvel’s movies, but after seeing Wonder Woman, I am more willing to give the DC movies a try, if only to keep up for when Justice League comes out.

Wonder Woman as a movie was fantastic. I adored the story line, Diana herself, Steve Trevor, the supporting characters, the scenery (like, holy sugar, did you see how vibrant and gorgeous Themyscira was?!), and the action sequences, especially the action sequences. Seeing the Amazons charge into battle to protect each other and their home made me tear up.

These women were the epitome of strength and it was about damn time we saw that on the big screen. Because, while Black Widow is important and an awesome character, we need more powerful women fighting the good fight. Like, guys, it’s amazing what you can do and I totally understand how you all can seem so confident and ready to take on a thousand bad guys after seeing a superhero like you do the same.

Because, for the first time in my 27 years of life, I felt the same way.

I felt the same way after seeing Diana Prince unabashedly go out in the world to protect what is dear to her, to simply do something to save the world and the innocent people in it. She exuded confidence and power, perhaps not fully understanding how the world worked, but knowing that she could do something to help.

I’m just so proud of how well this movie has done and I’m so looking forward to more installments with Wonder Woman. I hope everyone else who has seen this movie enjoyed it as well!

    I hate to rock the boat but….I was seriously disturbed by the actress playing Diana. All the Amazon women were beautiful and STRONG. They brilliantly cast MMA fighters and cross fit champions to play them.
    My 8 year old child has thighs the same size as Diana. They couldn’t find a woman who looks like she could stand up to a strong breeze?

      Gal Godot does have some military and combat background, though, having been in the Israeli army for a few years in the past. I didn’t know about the MMA fighters — that just makes those combat scenes better!
      Although I enjoyed Godot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman, having a bit more muscles on her wouldn’t have hurt. However, story-wise, she hadn’t been training as long as the other Amazons, and I know she was actually 5 months pregnant during the film, so some editing needed to be done in scenes. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy it as much as you could have, though! Aside from that, did you like the movie?

        I did like the movie considerably. I just felt it unrealistic and yet another in a long line of movies Hollywood turns out where the “strong female lead” is just attractive rather than actually strong.
