    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:

I really liked it. It was not Zeus, it was Ares. I liked the humor, but the movie did drag a bit in the middle.

    #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.

Ares. Zeus is her dad but it is stated he died after putting his power to create Themyscara. Ares was the one that killed the other gods and hurt Zeus badly.

The Amazons, in the movie, were meant to help the world of men and be an example. Help with rifts and so on. Diana hearing this went out to stop Ares from causing the worst war ever. Turns out that is too simplistic a view but it was her reasoning.

Ares wanted to break her but when he realized how naive she was he tried to recruit her to his side. He was not the cause of the war, just helped it along.

    #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.

Given how well it was received I would be shocked if there was not another one or two.

The plane contained toxin that the German's were preparing to drop at the front. Either keeping the war going or bringing the opposing side to their knees. Continuing chaos and so on.

So, he jumped on it and blew it up to prevent it from reaching where it was and to destroy that stock. Did he have to do it that way? Probably not, but it was supposed to be human redemption in Diana's mind. The other guys just blew up the wearhouse. He probably could have thrown a few gernades into the plane and called it a day.

    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.

I really liked the movie as well. It was flawed, but pretty solid.

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

The trailers look ok. I still do not have much faith in DC though. They have had decent trailers in the past. I think it helped not having Zack Snyder involved.

Look Raist bunnies...
