Introducing Diana Prince, daughter of the queen of the Amazon, we see Diana (Gal Gadot) as a little girl, growing up on an island of powerful women hidden from the world. But it’s clear she’s a special girl, destined to be a fighter with powers that she doesn’t even understand. But it’s clear she has a history that is amazing and is going to be become a superhero for sure. Distraught by the horrors of War, Diana heads out to help thwart the Germans from developing a most horrible chemical weapon that will allow them to rule the world, but it’s not going to be easy as only she understands who the real enemy is, and only she has a chance to stop him.

This is not the Wonder Woman we watched on TV each week as kids. The Diana Prince in a suit working for the government. But that’s okay, as a whole new generation of people need to meet Wonder Woman in order to bring her into the future Justice League films which will probably be an awesome thing to see. They need to meet the original Wonder Woman before she was domesticated and this movie does the trick. I have a couple minor complaints with the film, but I did see it in 3D and I really enjoyed the movie. The story is fun, and the fight scenes are awesome, with some really great chases and explosions all over the place. Suspense level if very high, and though it feels really long, almost 2 1/2 hours, it was quite entertaining. It’s just the they went a bit overboard on the CGI. It was so very fake looking and I felt it took away from the experience a bit. I think I enjoyed movies a bit more back when the CGI wasn’t so all in your face. I feel sorry for the actors spending weeks and weeks in front of a green screen. How boring it must have been to react to all the imaginary stuff that didn’t exist yet. All in all though, Gal Gadot did an excellent job, and was brilliant as Wonder Woman and she really pulled it off. Chris Pine backed her up really well, and the evil “take over the world” plot of the Germans was believable. The final battle was a bit anti-climactic, as if all the planning went into the CGI and they really didn’t know how to end it, but all in all it was a good film, and well worth the ticket prices.
