The much awaited DC Universe’s “Wonder Woman” is here and the internet can’t take the heat!
For those of you who don’t know what’s all the fuss about, Wonder Woman is all about an Amazon princess (Gal Gadot) who finds her idyllic life on an island occupied only by female warriors interrupted when a pilot (Chris Pine) crash-lands nearby. After rescuing him, she learns that World War I is engulfing the planet, and vows to use her superpowers to restore peace. Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster).
The Movie was released on June 2, 2017 and it had an overwhelming first day response across the world. It has received some amazing critique reviews. The shows were reported to be house full at several places.
A superhero who flies through the air, vanquishes foes with precision and alacrity, and looks great in a dress…huh? It’s not Superman — it’s “Wonder Woman”, and as Israeli actress Gal Gadot proves, she’s as heroic and as entertaining as any man.
The beautiful 32-year-old Gadot performs her own stunts after studying a variety of martial arts techniques. And in “Wonder Woman”, the first movie dedicated to this female super heroine, her exploits are as welcome as her rapport with co-star Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, the American pilot who finds himself falling in love with the Amazon princess called Diana.
Director Patty Jenkins, who helmed “Monster”, the movie that earned Charlize Theron her Academy Award for Best Actress, proves she can handle a fast-paced adventure as well as anybody. Actually, given that the battle scenes in “Wonder Woman” are blissfully short — Jeanne and I always rail against the protracted fight scenes with which male directors seem obsessed — Jenkins knows when to yell “cut” on the action sequences.
Naturally, without a strong portrayal from whomever won the title role, “Wonder Woman” would not be the smash hit it will become. Gadot more than lives up to the challenge, and is as good at delivering her lines as she is handling a magical lariat.
