Wonder Woman (2017)
Updated: Jul 31, 2019
Now I'm not known for my love of superhero films, but this got a lot of praise on release... So would it be the film to change my mind about this genre? It is good. It's refreshing to see strong female characters, all the female characters in fact and Gadot is worthy of most of the praise she received. The action sequences are fun, Matrix inspired slamfests and there’s few good jokes thrown in that did make me chuckle. It's far too long though, with a storyline that (I know its a superhero fantasy plot) is weak, plodding, often boring, unimaginative and generally crap. The cast is pretty underwhelming, with even the usually relieable Thewlis leaving me with a feeling of disappointing lacklustre. It made a killing at the box office, so of course they’re making another one, but I won’t be bothering. Superhero films are, for me, still a waste of time, in this case over 2 hours of it!
