Review:

An honest to goodness wonderful attempt to inject the comic book feel into the movie theater which director Patty Jenkins was able to deliver in more than a handful of scenes that looked beautiful on screen and was fun to watch. What caused its downfall was the 2 1/2 hour time it will take to finish which you will feel as the movie drags in many scenes. It’s a shame as it had a promising start but the two additional characters(Pascal and Wiig) lacked the scary feel of a real villain one can root against. The other has a cliche story line lacking connection. The writing didn’t impart enough reasons for viewers to care about them or make them do something we haven’t seen before which is a rare thing to do in films because let’s face it, we’ve all seen pretty much everything. Especially in a super hero genre. But the fact that this was Wonder Woman and remember the movie trailer was everything and then to watch this lackluster, uncompelling story line unfold that doesn't go anywhere, really... where you are not sure if you are enjoying it or not but Gal Gadot and Chris Pines are killing it every time they are on the screen. Pedro Pascal is doing his thing and Kristen Wiig is doing her best but the script was not very well written and so, it didn’t feel cohesive and there were no real urgency to the plot because as dire as the situation was happening, it just didn’t feel that epic because we’ve been there before and so much better and that’s basically what the movie was. Unlike the trailer that was epic. And the techno 80’s remixed song. But stay for after the credit as that is everything!
