Wonder Woman Is Awesome! Loved The Movie!

So I did it. I ran out to the theater to see Wonder Woman within a few days of it opening. Tuesday to be precise. I told my husband well in advance that we were going to the theater to see this one. I have to throw my money behind the first female superhero movie in my lifetime. (I'm not counting Elektra or Catwoman because they both are more anti-heroes; not because both movies were kind of bad.)

So first off there were some mistakes with the props for the time period. One of them rubbed me wrong but overall, I wasn't bothered. Some series history buffs might be.

Second, the ending was a little uneven. Having said that, this movie was awesome.

It had lots of people kicking ass--most of which just happened to be female. It did a wonderful job of portraying Wonder Woman as both naïve and a serious badass. I think Gal Gadot did a wonderful job. It had great side characters like Etta, Steve's secretary, and the cast of men that followed Steve and Diana behind enemy lines. It made me laugh and at some points, want to cheer. It had beautiful scenery contrasting with dark, dreary scenes.

I am thrilled they did such a good job with Wonder Woman and I'm already looking forward to Wonder Woman II. This is easily the best of the DC extended universe films so far--by far. Run out and see it! I don't think you'll be disappointed.
