Wonder Woman (2017)

by Niki Kefala

“Wonder Woman” is a superhero movie that fulfills the heroic and mythic demands of that genre and also embraces issues of female power and the need to turn from hate to love, war to peace. It is a movie with a good romantic rapport by Gadot and Pine, a solid secondary cast and a dramatic idea contained in Allan Heinberg’s script. Patty Jenkins rises above the pressure and brings a solid, interesting and humorous story to life. As Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot is perfect and ideal for this role. The only bad thing in this movie is that there are too many villains, none of them dramatically strong enough to be much of a threat, and the most interesting characters get killed off too soon. But in short, Wonder Woman is a wonder.
