Synopsis: Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot (Chris Pine) crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true identity.
My review: Despite the initial uproar with Gal Gadot playing the iconic super hero; after viewing the movie I’ve determined she was perfect for the role. While helping to solidify the opening to the DC cinematic universe; this was a much needed basic origin story. Growing up with Lynda Carter’s version of the character; I went into this viewing with an open mind, and this modern day version didn’t disappoint. Even though the movie itself was loaded with CGI effects, it had a darker tone to it much like the previous DC movies that will tie together with the Justice League movie. It will be interesting to see how well the different character personalities will mesh onscreen once together.
CGI effects blending well into the movie: 3/10
Appealing to comic book fans and not straying too far from source material: 8/10
Should you watch?: 8/10
