WonderWoman Review

DC's Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot is a wonderful movie, just like the beautiful Gal.

The Movie is about Diana aka Wonderwoman who was raised by the amazons on the hidden island of Themyscira. The Island was kept hidden by Zeus from the God of war Ares. The film shows constant battle between good and evil.

As a young woman in 1918, Diana rescues American pilot Captain Steve Trevor after his plane crashes off Themyscira's coast. The island is soon invaded by the landing party of a German cruiser pursuing Steve. The Amazons engage and kill all of the German sailors, but Antiope sacrifices herself to save Diana by intercepting a bullet meant for her. Interrogated with the Lasso of Hestia, Steve reveals that "The War to End All Wars" is raging in the outside world, and that he is an Allied spy. He has stolen a notebook with valuable information from the Spanish chief chemist Isabel Maru, who is attempting to engineer a deadlier form of mustard gasunder the orders of General Erich Ludendorff, from a weapons facility in the Ottoman Empire. Believing Ares is responsible for the war, Diana arms herself with the sword and leaves Themyscira with Steve to find and destroy Ares.

Sir Patrick appears, revealing himself as Ares and tells Diana that although he has subtly given humans ideas and inspirations, it is ultimately their decision to cause violence as they are inherently corrupt. He destroys the ceremonial sword, revealing Diana is the true "Godkiller" as she is Zeus' daughter, then tries to persuade her to help him destroy humankind to restore paradise on Earth. While the two battle and the rest of Steve's team destroy Maru's laboratory, Steve pilots the bomber carrying the gas to a safe altitude and detonates it, sacrificing himself in the process. Ares attempts to harness Diana's rage and grief at Steve's death by convincing her to kill Maru, but her memories of Steve cause her to decide that humans have good within them. She spares Maru and kills Ares.
In Trafalgar Square, the team celebrates the end of the war. 

The movie has some good scenes in Themyscira the hidden island. the little girl (wonderwoman) is so expressive that you will love those scenes. The action scenes in Themyscira are brilliant. Chemistry between Gal and Chris Pine is  a treat to watch.
Watch the trailer here
My Score- 7 out of 10.
