Based on the DC Comic book, Wonder Woman, created by William Moulton Marston. Diana (Gal Gadot), daughter of Hippolyta, the Amazon Queen, lives among the Amazons (a special race created by Zeus to protect mankind from the god of war, Aries) in a world populated only by women.
One day Diana rescues Steve (Chris Pine), an American soldier, from the ocean after his plane was shot down by Germans. After learning about the terrible world war Diana decides to leave her home to put a stop to the destruction. Steve needs to stop the evil German commander Ludendorff (Danny Huston) from destroying the the world. With Steve and their band of misfits by her side, she finds herself drawn into a the war and assumes her identity as warrior princess, Wonder Women.
The movie is packed with action, special effects, epic battle scenes and a bit of romance. I’ve never read any of the Wonder Women comic books I really enjoyed watching the movie. Gal Gadot did an amazing job as Wonder Woman and the chemistry between her and Chris Pine is pretty good.
See it if you like action movies, comic book adaptations or seeing women kick butt. I’d recommend seeing this film on the big screen.
