I have no qualms about the gaudy (if slightly Trumpian) excess of the production design, which would have even sent the late Gianni Versace running for the hills. This would normally have been welcome in a superhero comic book universe, but the elaborate set is muddied by poor photography and flat lighting, and is bolstered by didactic voiceover narration and a desperate orgy of slow-motion CGI that give the scenes a cheap velvet painting diorama effect.

I love all the movies on my list, but more than any other this year, “Wonder Woman” reminded me that we bring our entire histories when we watch a movie — our childhood reveries, our adolescent yearnings and adult reservations. I’ve always loved Wonder Woman in all her imperfection, including in the old TV show, and I loved her here because all my adult reservations were no match for this movie.

The best modern superhero film by a substantial margin, in large part because it shrugs off the supposed common wisdom that’s become encrusted around the genre and dares to be straightforwardly idealistic, giving its title character strongly held values and testing them and forcing her to adjust or re-frame them without losing them—a deeper struggle that’s more resonant than the physical struggles she faces in the course of the story, which are impressive in their own right.

  • chanandre's rating of the film Wonder Woman

    [Atmos 3D] Features the best 15-minute opening sequence to any SuperHero movie franchise ever. WANT: "The Amazons" franchise right about NOW. Wasn't sold on the WWI plotline (yawn)*HISTORIC: a Feminist, Bechdel'd, Female-driven (stadiums of Female Agency) action blockbuster. Love Diana slightly ahead in the B&W group picture. Living in Paris&working at the Louvre: la classe ♡ ['Sophisticated Lady': Cat Power cover]▽

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Wonder Woman

    Borderline unwatchable. If it weren't for Gadot being so charming, I would've turned it off within ten minutes. There's nothing separating this from other bloated, uninspired, comic-adapted garbage - except for the hype and politics surrounding the director being a woman. Somehow predictable and nonsensical, it was 90% dragged-out action scenes and 10% dialogue explaining why those scenes are happening.

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film Wonder Woman

    Had I seen it on a huge screen, in a theater full of fellow supplicants sucking fumes from the full-tilt summer-blockbuster hype machine, its magic might have worked. But apart from feeling more lubricious than liberating--"I'm both frightened and aroused," my ass--this bright, beautiful, color-burst of a film is dully, dutifully witless--its only superpower is pandering. Here's to David Thewlis cashing in, though.

  • anarresti's rating of the film Wonder Woman

    It's just a woman fighting. If some are still celebrating and others are saying it's too much, than we are really boring and way beyond predictable. Depictions of Amazons are at least 2.500 old, and feminism has been giving us a lot more to debate and think about than, can a woman fight too, do women kick ass as well as men?, for more than a hundred years. Is the warrior princess all that Hollywood can spit out?

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film Wonder Woman

    Sweeping and glorious; it often feels like an MGM period epic on steroids. Snyder's bombast and unbridled enthusiasm is mediated by Jenkins' patience for characters and pacing. What musings there are on mothers, daughters, men, women, and war, work. Gadot's earnest, spirited performance won't soon be forgotten. There's probably a handful of greats to emerge from this dragging superhero craze. This is one of them.

  • Skinnedteen's rating of the film Wonder Woman

    It's actually refreshing to watch a strong female-lead superhero in such a cheezy storyline and understand why most boys are so obsessed with Spiderman and Batman. Cause everytime there's a strong female lead, it always end up in a serious tone, playing a serious role where abuse is somewhat incorporated in the narrative.

  • Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman, whose first part was much more interesting than the second, is the fourth installment of DC comics, and although better than the previous three, still struggles with stereotypes and unevenness.

  • OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Wonder Woman

    Without Gal Gadot's incredibly strong performance this would have been just another blockbuster but she brings a much welcomed warmth and humanity to the role and the choice to stage it all against the backdrop of the ancient greek mythology also kept things fresh. 3 stars
