General Overview (Without Spoilers)
I’m not one to watch superhero movies that often, and have never really been into the whole Marvel thing. But after Doctor Strange, I was very impressed by the stories that could be created with these superheroes and decided to try another movie out.
Wonder Woman was an amazing movie and I loved the plot of the movie. It had great visuals and the characters were on point. The beginning of the movie was very strong as we are introduced to Diana and the Amazons. Then throughout the movie, we see Diana start to grow as a person as she discovers what her morals are and what she should or should not fight for.
It was very realistic in this aspect since we saw both the evil and the good side and the corruption of humankind. We saw the realism of the war, as well as how evil humans can be.
Full Review (*With Spoilers*)
The beginning, as said before, started off strong. We see Diana as a child and it would seem that she is quite protected by the people on the island.
It seems that she is being quite protected and is a beloved child on that island where they live. As she grows up, she begins to learn how fight until one day she encounters a human man who had crashed their plane near their island. After learning about the current world war that has been happening without them knowing, Diana decides to go with him in order to help stop the war and protect humankind.
In their beliefs, Ares, the god of war, rages humans against one another to create chaos. Diana believes that in order to stop the war, she will first have to defeat Ares. However, throughout the movie, people don’t believe her story, even as she openly persists.
She goes through the war, saving as many people as she can, even liberating a village from enemy’s hands. But in the end, Ares reveals himself and tries to convince her to join his side to destroy humankind.
I really liked his part of the movie since we saw Diana conflict with her own beliefs and start to grow her own morals and figure out what is right. We see her realize the truth of who is who and whether humans are truly as innocent as they seemed to be.
The visuals of the movie was also very entertaining since it brought a lot of mood and intensity to the plot line. The way the directors were able to professionally weld the fighting scenes was very well done and I really enjoyed it.
