      #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.

    You didn't follow it because it didn't make much sense. For some reason Ares nefarious plan was to broker armistice talks he "knew they could not keep" - whatever. If it's a reference to Mankind reverting to war over and over again, why does he need to foster peace talks? If it was an actual "plan" of his, I don't see how that promotes warfare.

    I thought that Ares was a weakness in the movie. He was actually much more intimidating when he was just a "concept", a sort of Sauron behind the scenes that couldn't be combated directly.

Plus, choosing an actor who doesn't even look the least bit intimidating was also a factor.

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?
