Wonder Woman is the first movie adaptation of the DC Comic character Wonder Woman. In this adaptation, Diana aka Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot) is the Amazon princess of Themyscira, that is populated by only Amazon women and can’t be seen from the outside world. One day a plane crashes on Themyscira that was piloted by Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine), a British secret agent, Steve had stole the experiment book of Dr. Maru aka Doctor Poison (played by Elena Anaya), a German scientist that has created a gas that even a gas mask cannot stop. Steve tells the Amazons about the war and how people are in danger if he doesn’t deliver the book to British High Command. After hearing about the war, Diana thinks that it’s Ares the god of War that is causing it. This leads Diana to team up with Steve to find and kill Ares, so that the war will end. Ares has the power to corrupt people’s souls and stopping him will release the people from his control. So it’s up to Diana and Steve to stop the deadly gas from being released and killing Ares before more innocent lives are lost.
Wonder Woman is a good step forward in the DC Cinematic Universe. The characters are charming and funny. Gal Gadot and Chris Pine work great off each other and have great comic timing. The film does have a some good jokes and comic moments. Some of the action scenes are cool. The weaknesses of the film is that some of the slow motion shots are at random, the villain is weak, and the CGI (Computer Generated Images) looks terrible. Also the film does feel a lot like Captain America: The First Avenger, with a lunatick German scientist inventing an unstoppable weapon to end the war, but is stopped by a gang of soldiers and a person with advance human strength that carries a shield that can stop bullets who has been told no for that they can’t help most of their lives and the ending is that one of our heros has to sacrifice their live and manually pilot the plane to a safer location or people will die. There are differences between the two films, but there are many elements that seemed ripped off from Captain America: The First Avenger. Wonder Woman gets 6/10 stars.
