Review: One of my favorite movies of 2017, I think Patty Jenkins did an amazing job bringing Wonder Woman to life in the DCU. She had a lot of help from her star Gal Gadot, who nailed the role and left me wanting more. With her co star Chris Pine, the two gelled on screen wonderfully. I thought the movie cinematography was beautiful. And the island of Themyscira is breathtaking, and beyond well done. I also thought the movie was really great up until the final battle against Ares, i found it poorly lit and just not well coordinated. Which was upsetting because the rest of the fight choreography was really solid and kicked major ass! I truly believe this was the best movie overall of the DCEU, snd Gal Gadot is a superstar.
Favorite Scene: The scene in the war, where no man can cross the “dead man zone” and Wonder Woman goes through it in one of the most badass scenes in the DC universe. That scene totally stole the show and cemented Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman!
Recommendation: I would highly recommend this movie. It is one of the strongest outings the DC Universe has. Gal Gadot is incredible as Wonder Woman. And Chris Pine plays a great supporting character as Steve Trevor.
