Patty Jenkins directs this action adventure film starring Gal Gadot as the eponymous DC Comics superheroine. Raised on the island of Themyscira, young princess Diana (Gadot) has been trained in the fighting ways of her fellow Amazon warriors, despite the best wishes of her mother Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) who sought to shield her from combat. As she begins to learn the true extent of her powers, Diana and her fellow Amazons are thrust into battle when American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crash-lands just off the shores of Themyscira, pursued by the might of the Germany military. When Steve tells them about the First World War, raging across the world, Diana suspects the god of war Ares, whom Zeus has protected the Amazons from, has returned and sets off to London with Steve to put an end to the bloodshed of the Great War.
In this 2017 movie Wonder Woman, the Amazon princess Diana sets out to stop World War I, believing the conflict was started by the longtime enemy of the Amazons, Ares. Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot in the title role, alongside Chris Pine, Robin Wright. The 141 minute run time goes very quickly, the movie is well made and effects are what you would expect from a big budget DC. Very enjoyable fun movie, 7 out of 10
