Today I get to talk about the DCEU movie I was most excited about. Although I didn’t exactly love the other films, I had high hopes for Wonder Woman. Let’s see how that turned out!
In this film, we learn about Wonder Woman’s origin. As the daughter of the Queen of the Amazons, she grew up on Themiscyra, a mystical island. When a pilot crashlands and reveals information about the first World War, Wonder Woman aka Diana has to leave her homeland to rescue the world.
This was amazing! I am so relieved to say that I finally found a DCEU movie I loved.
The story is quite intriguing and despite a few flaws I was hooked and thrilled throughout the entire film. Not only is it interesting that they went with WWI instead of WWII for a change, but it’s also wonderful to follow Diana as she discovers our world.
While the other superheroes (and villains) we’ve encountered in the DCEU movie so far are just lacking, Wonder Woman has it all: she’s charming, funny, intelligent and 100% bad ass. It’s simply a delight to watch her and I can’t for the sequel!
Furthermore, Wonder Woman also comes with my favorite soundtrack so far. The things didn’t feature anything that was particularly memorable but this one really has some great tunes (especially the theme)!
The action sequences are – of course – spot on and although they do use a lot of CGI in this film, it’s not as overwhelmingly suffocating as in the other ones.
Wonder Woman is a silver lining a the DCEU horizon. After some rather disappointing pictures, this one has gotten back on the boat. Can’t wait to see what else they have in store!
