After centuries of pondering over powers and strengths of greatest men superheroes in comics, books and even games, this is the first bona fide, big-budget and astonishingly well-created superhero movie that is all about a “Woman”. Her upbringing, her culture, her challenges and her powers! Wonder Woman was first seen in the Dawn of the Justice, and fans were immediately smitten with Gal Gadot’s act as an indestructible character.
Did you know that Wonder Woman, as a character, was first introduced in Superman comics nearly 76 years ago?! It took DC Comics nearly 76 years to bring out a big screen movie adaptation of with a strong female protagonist and only a woman director could have done justice to the spirit of the Wonder Woman comic and character. Patty Jenkins’ adaptation redefines what beauty is in its own virtues topped with some of the best action scenes.
The Plot in Brief!
Diana, the Amazon princess is transported from the isolated all-female island of Themyscira to the male-dominated human society at large. Armed with the mysterious powers of God, Diana is a powerful, fierce, nurturing and a strong-willed woman, but at the same time baffled by her new discoveries of the troubled Europe of World War One, which includes tragedies of war and cultural mores. As the ambassador of the warrior nation, she stands for Love, peace, and above all else, truth!
“Jenkin’s Wonder Woman is a tale of transmission and wisdom passed down from generations to generations”.
In the very first look, and in the first few minutes of the screening, you’d get a gist of how exactly Jenkins has made the effort to celebrate Diana’s feminine traits. Even then, throughout the movie, Diana’s biggest strength is not her hair, or appearance or her warrior skills, it’s her empathy and her pure spirit that make her stand out amongst all other superheroes that we’d known for centuries now. Amazonian women finally give us an image of a band of strong-willed women fighting to protect their mothers and children is a reminder how great superhero movies can be.
Gadot is magnificent in her gig as Wonder Woman
…and mavens in displaying her glorious badass avatar. As Diana, the Wonder Woman, she is someone who wears her femininity with the same pride that she wears her armour-plated bra and bracelets. Gadot does succeed in bringing freshness in the age-old heroic morality and her chemistry with Chris Pine is impossibly charming. This is a powerful female-superhero-portrayals that’s worth giving a shot at least once by everyone – whether a fan or not!
