WONDER WOMAN: MEATBALL MOVIE REVIEW

June 2, 2017

In a time when the DC Cinematic Franchise is in shambles still trying to recover from their last two films. Insert Wonder Woman proving once and for all sometimes all we need is a Woman's Touch.


Wonder Woman is the story about an Amazon Princess (Gal Gadot) who finds her life on an island occupied only by female warriors that is interrupted when a pilot (Chris Pine) crash-lands nearby. After rescuing him, she learns about the Great War engulfing the planet, and vows to use her superpowers to restore peace.


The Iconic Character is brought to life with vigor from director Patty Jenkins (Monster) and delivers an amazing and strong performances by Gadot who proves that she deserves to be in this role and Pine who is along for the ride delivering one of his best performances as Steve Trevor the World War I Spy.


Gadot and Pine shine together in some of the most hilarious moments of the film. I am still laughing from the conversation they have on a tiny boat when leaving Themyscira. The playful and honest tone of the film in its downtime helps set up the bigger moments and the CGI filled final act.


One of the best moments in this film is when Diana is exiting a WWI Bunker to enter the battle field area called "No Man's Land" which is obvious symbolism. The shot is breathtaking and sure to become an iconic image in the feminism fight but also in cinematic film history.


Wonder Woman doesn't change the wheel when it comes to the Origin Story movies it just takes all the aspects that we love and enhances them. It delivers a strong, powerful, witty, engaging and mighty story of a hero mankind doesn't deserve. The film also proves once and for all that all the comments about female superhero movies should be put to rest along with female directors. Gal Gadot shows that not only can girls play with the boys but they can do it better.


Wonder Woman gets 4.5 out of 5 Meatballs.


Also no need to stay because there are no post or after-credit sequences.
