Wonder Woman Review

I saw it  last Saturday and it was better than I imagined, not sure what I expected but really good and I wanted to shout out and clap but I didn’t want to disturb the other people watching the movie.  So I sat there in silence but really enjoyed it. I am also pleased that it did very well at the box office, she is soooo pretty and  Steve and Diana they were good together

 I also LOVED seeing the Amazons jumping off the cliffs without hesitation to protect their home.

 I loved seeing WW in No Man’s Land, determined to save all of the people.

The big “no man’s land” action sequence is among the best superhero fight scenes I’ve ever seen. Bravo, bravo

Patty Jenkins did an outstanding job with the WW mythology and this movie had heart  and great action scenes too. It was so refreshing to see women warriors kicking butt!!

Gal Gadot was perfection in the role of Wonder Woman

However  thhis version of Diana does change her Themysciran origins from what comic book fans might have been used to. Where we are used to reading about Wonder Woman winning an Amazonian competition in order to prove herself the most capable warrior of her people.

I usually do not see the same movie twice in a theatre, but I may make an exception for Wonder Woman!

Wonder Woman

I have always loved Wonder Woman  and I am soo excited that Wonder Woman finally gets her own major film

It has been one of the most anticipated movies of the year. 

And it is definitely the most talked about movie

I've noticed some similarities between Gal Gadot and Lynda Carter

1) Lynda Carter was a beauty queen, she represented the United States of America in the  1972 Miss World beauty pageant

Gal Gadot was also a beauty queen, she represented Israel in the 2004 Miss Universe pageant

 2) Lynda Carter can sing

Gal Gadot can also sing

3) Before Lynda Carter was cast in the popular 1975-1979 Wonder Woman tv series. Cathy Lee Crosby was the first Wonder Woman made for Tv movie. This Tv movie was resolutely low concept who seemed to have no special powers. The 1974 Tv movie was a big disappointment and nobody liked it. 

Before Gal gadot was cast as Wonder Woman. An unseen pilot for a  Wonder Woman TV reboot  that starred Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman was shot in 2011 but NBC decided not to order a full series. 

Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot were both perfect as Wonder Woman. Because both women represents everything good  for the Wonder Woman character which is strength, beauty, intelligence and compassion.
