Movie Reviews: “Wonder Woman”
Review: New Yorker
Its story of ruefulness and loss isn’t smothered in gray existential sludge poured down from on high in the style of Christopher Nolan. Instead, those qualities emerge on their own from the events of the film, which are depicted with a calm and clear frankness that Jenkins builds into her view of Diana’s story from the start.
Of course, “Wonder Woman” is a superhero movie, and it fulfills the heroic and mythic demands of that genre, but it’s also an entry in the genre of wisdom literature that shares hard-won insights and long-pondered paradoxes of the past with a sincere intimacy.
Review: Third Coast Review
We could tell even from her abbreviated appearance in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice that Wonder Woman was going to be a major player in the DC cinematic universe specifically and the superhero oeuvre in general.
As portrayed in that film and now her own movie by Israeli-born actor Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman was the strongest and smartest (and an argument could be made, the most powerful) person in any room but she never had to act like she was.
Her lifetime of training in battle and weaponry made her fight with surgical precision in a world filled with other superheroes exercising the subtlety of a wrecking ball.
Review: New Republic
In fact, there is much in Wonder Woman that we have seen before. This new offering from DC Comics takes place during World War I, one of the two great wars of the twentieth century that have become fodder for the Hollywood superhero entertainment complex. Wonder Woman is supposedly an “Amazon,” a people who, in this universe anyway, dwell on a vaguely Greek island where the steely older babes of Hollywood practice knife-fighting.
After an American (Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine) stumbles upon their timeless haven and causes a beachside conflict between these ancient hotties and Germans with guns, the hottest among them joins him to find and fight the mythical villain who is behind all this destruction.
