I have only read the first Wonder Woman comic book but I absolutely loved it, so I had quite high expectations of the movie. Along with all the amazing reviews where people have been raving about it. The movie really lived up to my expectations! It was eventful, fun, inspiring, action-packed and so much more. I was a bit worried about the whole World War I story since I’m not the biggest fan of movies about the old wars but Wonder Woman really made it work. I’m not going to lie though, watching movies about World War I & II is not really my cup of tea. Watching Wonder Woman fight however, that was something extra. I was totally amazed because it was so cool and amazing to watch. Every move was just perfect and when she used that lasso, I mean omg. Where can I get that lasso?!
I have to say that I enjoyed the whole cast. Gal Gadot was absolutely brilliant as Wonder Woman. She managed to present this strong, warmhearted hero and I loved both Gal and Wonder Woman. Chris Pine was fantastic as well. I think it was good that his character never took over or became the main focus. He just got the right amount of screen time. I probably just had one problem with the cast and that was the God Ares. To me it felt like he was a bit too old to be this powerful God of war, I was constantly scared that he would break his bones or something because he looked so fragile. The rest of the team was however fantastic and they made the movie more eventful and fun. I liked how they managed to include some humor here and there without it being too much as well. Makes it more enjoyable. So this was a great movie and Wonder Woman is a fantastic and amazing character and I’m so glad we got a whole movie about her.
