🎬: So much to love about ⚔Wonder Woman!⚔

Wonder Woman is based on the DC comic book character created in 1941 by William Moulton Marston. This is the first stand-alone film for Wonder Woman played by Gal Gadot.

The film opens on an island with a young Amazon princess, named Diana who later trains to be the great warrior Wonder Woman. She’s the daughter of a mythical Queen and has super powers.

Wonder Woman rescues an American pilot, Steve played by Chris Pine, whose plane crashes near her island. He tells her about World War I, and soon they head to Germany to save the world.

The Bottomline? Director Patty Jenkins of Monster (2003), fame brings us another stellar film. Gal Gadot’s performance is fantastic to watch, she not only carries the entire film, but she also brings strength, intelligence, compassion and beauty to her role. Chris Pine is fun to watch as he takes a back seat, he brings humor and light-heartedness to the darkness of their wartime situation.

William Moulton, Wonder Woman’s creator has said, she has all the strength of Superman, plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman.”

If you ever thought you might want to see a superhero movie, then this is the one to go and see! I loved it!
