Movie Review: Wonder Woman

I went to see Wonder Woman at the Theater on June 1st with my daughter. We had both been looking forward to this movie viewing. The Wonder Woman trailer was epic with great action scenes. The chemistry between Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. You can see that the director, Patty Jenkins, put true passion into the making of this movie.

This movie generated a lot of controversies before it even hit the movie theatre.

It was important for me to see the movie on opening weekend. Unfortunately, women don’t get chances to fail in the movie industry. People are placing too much pressure on one movie, like everything for women hinges on its success or failure. Men get numerous chances to make superhero movies or movies with male leads. No one left a crappy movie saying that we’re done making ‘men’ movies.

The movie lived up to the hype and I couldn’t be happier and relieved that it did. The action scenes are truly spectacular and the special effects are truly amazing. The story does honour the original comic book stories with a few exception like every movie I have ever seen. I find that the Wonder Woman movie couldn’t have had better timing as now. Its message is still very accurate and timely.  I am looking forward to seeing it again with my husband.

Some men aren’t happy about a women-only screening of Wonder Woman in Texas, which was organised by a charity and only happening in 2 locations, and are making a bigger issue about it. They are making more of an issue and being much louder in their protests than women having a male-only committee to reshape an entire country’s healthcare system because hurt feelings have more importance than woman’s actual lives. It seems that it’s okay for discrimination against women that has a very real impact, that is actually killing them, but it’s not okay for men to have their feeling hurt. I find this entire situation completely ridiculous.
