I usually don't post here, as Diana is not one of my favorite characters, and she seems to be more of an icon than an actual CHARACTER, but due to the rave reviews, I saw the movie last night with my friend (He also likes comics and comic movies.), and I was pleasantly surprised. Based on the previews and on DC's not so great track record with their past few movies, I did not have high hopes for this one. But I was pleasantly surprised. Gal Godot is amazingly hot, and, wait, was there anything else to the movie? Does there have to be? Well, she can act too. She did a good job (And I'm not sure if I mentioned the whole she's hot too, thing. Not that that's a big deal or anything.), and she gave us a fully-fleshed-out character. The parts with her and Steve Trevor were the best parts of the movie. The film could have used a BIIIITTT more humor, but I did enjoy the humor that it had. The part with Diana and Steve on the boat at night was the best part. It was cool to see Doctor Poison too. I don't really know anything about the character, but I did recognize her name, and I know that she is a villain. I thought that she was going to be the main villain when I saw her/heard the name. She certainly LOOKED creepy (A nice touch.). The fight with Zeus was very impressive, but that brings me to two things that I didn't really understand:

#1. What was the deal with Sir Patrick? Maybe I wasn't following the parts with him too closely, but I forgot, what was his part in the movie before he became Zeus? I forgot his relationship with Diana.

#2. Why did Steve Trevor sacrifice himself again? I was surprised that Steve sacrificed himself, especially since I heard the day before I saw the movie that they are going to have a sequel. THAT I did not see coming! I also thought that he was well done in the movie (I don't know much about him in the comic.), he was portrayed as noble and likable.

So, again, I was pleasantly surprised by this movie, and I think that Gal Godot pretty much made it. Oh, and did I mention that she's hot? Not that I was thinking about that or anything, I just wasn't sure if I mentioned it.

Thanks for the help. I hope that the Justice League is done well, too. THAT I have high hopes for as well.

Uhhh. I respectfully disagree. They did not do Wonder Woman better than the comic. Far from it.

1. THE MOVIE: Diana is a daughter of Zeus. Here she is not unique but rather a rip off of Hercules. Yeah, she's Hercules with boobs.

THE COMIC: Diana was created from clay and given her powers from the pantheon of the gods. This makes her a far more unique character. How is the movie better than the comic?

2. AMBASSADOR of PEACE: Diana is an Ambassador of peace not the goddess of war, nor is it her mission to assassinate a god but rather bring peace to man's world. Yet, the movies motivation for Diana to go to man's world is pretty much not to bring peace to it, spreading the message of the Amazons and making the world a better place, but rather to assassinate Ares. That's NOT Wonder Woman.

This proves the comic is better than the movie as the movie took everything unique about the character and ripped it away.

And then there's the whole mistake of the movie taking place in the setting of World War I when Diana is a modern Super-Hero and not Captain America. And don't get me started on her inability to fly...

Gal is far from being a good casting choice either. How she managed to win over the audience when, at first, nearly everyone hated it when Gal was cast, I'll never understand. I can name seven actors who are not only more beautiful than Gal, but also would have been WAY better choices: Gina Carano, Gemma Arterton, Catrina Law, Bridget Regan, Cobie Smulders, Odette Annable, Alexis Knapp.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
