Wonder woman… o wonder woman what a wonder wow man!!
That was me trying to rhyme up there lol. So this is supposedly the most talked about movie in 2017, why? You would ask. Because this is the first Heroine movie hitting the cinemas this big and to be honest it did not disappoint. Many asked me when I was going to give a review on the movie I told them I wanted the dust to settle first before I give an opinion on it. I am ready now here goes.
Let me start with the storyline, as a religious follower of cartoons/comics turned movie it was ideal the storyline we have come to grow up with is not totally ruined. Yes little changes are allowed but don’t go about doing wholesome changes like Ghostbusters because you want to appeal to a certain audience it would not work and 99 percent of the time it leads to total disaster of an evergreen Cartoon turned movie. The storyline of Wonder woman wasn’t totally changed which I appreciated a whole lot. Gal Gadot wasn’t all that in Superman vs Batman, but she is beginning to get it right with this solo movie, the accent helped also but she still needs to be more flexible if you ask me. Is it just me but I thought it was America and not England in the cartoons? We can forgive that. Also Germany would be wondering what they can do to change history with all this super hero movies always fighting the Germans lol, oh well most of this super hero movies were created around the time of the World war so it is understandable my German friends.
While I watched the movie though especially the village scene when she went on turbo charge knocking everyone and anything down, it looked quite similar to Captain America with the whole shield, jumping around and hitting people and things like tissue paper but at the same time avoiding weapons cause it could still cause injuries.
Everyone knows that the comparison between Marvel and DC would be something we will still talk about for years and years. It seems to me Wonder woman towed the line of Man of steel (superman) and Batman vs Superman; It was dark and grey than bright and happy we have come to know Marvel for, even Wonder woman’s costume was darker in colour compared to the bright gold, red and blue we have come to know her for.
I must applaud the fact Ares was not in our face, they hid him very well and I did not suspect him till the very end. Also the sacrifice of Steve played by Chris Pine was also impressive. Finally DC Universe is finally building momentum after a dismal showing in Batman vs Superman (it was terribly bad trust me. I watched it and I was wishing it ended on time because I was getting sleepy lol). Wonder woman kept me wanting more after every scene.
I would agree with critics’ world over, this movie did a world of good to the DC universe and for their own sake I hope they can build on its success. But mehn!!! This movie is long biko 2hours and 21minutes or so. What is it who did we offend now, but it was worth it sha lol.
To the ladies who are quick to rush to quote wonder woman “men are only good for reproduction”, remember when our dear Steve died, she cried for him, showed anger(due to love) and unleashed her real powers due to her love lol. I guess even the strongest woman needs a good man not only for reproduction after all (dodging bottles, shoes, and makeup kit and rings lol).
Lesson from this wonderful movie. We human have the ability for evil, but when we hold on to our ability to love and let it shine forth, we become a better race. In the face of adversity we always find a way to rise from the ashes and be better.
My favourite scene, probably would be everyones’, It was when she charged up her hands, flew up and said “good bye brother” before blasting Ares out of existance, some Sango and Amadioha stunts lol.
My favourite quote from the movie; Steve to Diana “I can save today, you can save the world”. Remember we are all heroes when we decide to do what is right and go out of our way to help those that are helpless.
I am waiting for Flash, if they ruin that whenever that would be, they should just know from now they would be hearing from me.
I would rate the movie a 4 star out of 5… Magnificento!!!
P.S I am not writing on Alien: The Covenant, that movie was the worst movie ever. I REPEAT DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WATCH IT FOR ANY REASON. It is not worth writing about because I would just get worked up Lmao!!!..
