Wonder Woman

On Monday, I finally got to see Wonder Woman. 

 Formatted as a frame story it explores her origins.  As the only child on a mysterious island of Amazonian women, Diana was very sheltered growing up.  However, everything changed when Steve Trevor finds his way to the island during World War II.  When he explains what is happening in “the world of men,” Diana makes the decision to leave the island and help him fight the war.

This movie is amazing. The stunts were second to none. Viewers will be on the edge of their seats.  It’s definitely high octane action and adventure.

Gal Gadot was the perfect Wonder Woman. Chris Pine was a really good spy.  And they definitely had chemistry.  Not just romantic either; they work well together.

The most surprising performance was probably that of David Thewlis.  He’s better known as Profess Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter franchise.  It was different to see him play a villain like Ares, but he’s good at it.  Probably because it’s just that – different and unexpected.
