I had heard so many positive things about this movie, so I already had high expectations going into the theatre- this movie however exceeded all my expectations and was even better than I’d hoped it would be!
Not only did the beautiful Gal Gadot prove herself as an amazing actress, but the cinematography, the story line, and all of the characters were perfectly crafted and the actors who portrayed them were perfectly chosen. My admiration for Chris Pine was only intensified by his role in this movie as the adorable and selfless Steve Trevor and delivers a lot of emotional depth to his character.
The movie is both light hearted and heavy as it contains a few laughs and memorable comedic moments but also sheds light on heavier topics such as human nature, war, and peace. I feel that in light of current events that have happened in our world today, the movie was released at a perfect time and the topics described in the movie are a perfect reflection on the worlds current situation and the way in which our worlds people treat one another.
The movie is empowering and feminist without being cheesy or redundant and adds something new to the super hero genre that hasn’t already been done. The important take away from this movie is that the power of belief and of love and compassion for one another can overcome great obstacles in life.
This is a movie that everyone can enjoy, and the amount of cheering and clapping in the full movie theatre echoed that fact. This is one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time, and I feel that those who’ve seen it or have yet to see it will feel the same.
5/5 solid gold stars from me!
