I have been a Wonder Woman fangirl since I was 4 years old... I am now 45. I never thought anyone could replace Linda Carter as Wonder Woman in my heart and life. Then I saw this movie... WOW!
My 78 year old Father (who introduced me to Wonder Woman at such a young and impressionable age... thank you, dad ♡) and I saw this movie together for the first time and many times in the theater again and again. Both of us were SO beyond happy with this film! Gal Gadot stole both of our hearts and admiration! She is beyond talented and daaamn she kicks major boo-tay as Wonder Woman! ;)
THIS MOVIE IS AMAZING FOR EVERYONE! Young and old, female and male. The storyline, character creation, acting and directing is outstanding! OUTSTANDING!!! ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
And while I will always love, admire and thank Linda Carter for being my Wonder Woman growing up... Gal Gadot was so FANTASTIC, I loved her and this movie! I love that a whole new generation of girls and boys have been given this gift of a powerful, courageous, graceful, amazing and yes, sexy new Wonder Woman! I am beyond thrilled I get to feel like a kid again and as an adult woman, celebrate this ground breaking character all over again! Thank you DC Comics, Warner Bros., Creator - William Moulton Marston, Director - Patty Jenkins, all the AMAZING Actresses and Actors. Especially Chris Pine and the real woman herself, Gal Gadot! ♡
I'll start off by saying I really enjoyed Wonder Woman. It was everything I hoped for in a DC movie. I really cared about the characters which is something other recent DC movies have lacked. It had its funny moments, great action scenes and an actress that (despite criticism) I feel was perfect for the role. There were a couple parts I took minor issue with. The fact that no one really seemed to acknowledge her powers kind of irked me. Overall, the movie was very enjoyable, and I don't think it will disappoint unless your bar is set extremely high.
I ordered the Amazon exclusive which came with the statue. I really have more Wonder Woman statues than I should, but at this point, why break the cycle? The statue seems well made and is really quite nice. It comes in four parts (WW, sword arm, shield arm, and base). The arms connect with magnets and there is a peg which attaches her to the base. She only has one leg on the base which is fairy unique. The likeness is pretty off, but this is a relatively cheap statue. I do not regret getting the exclusive even though I almost cancelled. If it becomes available again, pick it up.
I held out on going to see these 3 specific movies at theaters solely to enjoy a personal home theater experience. Wonder Woman in 4k will be first. My ONLY gripe is the whole slip cover issue. I wish Amazon can somehow guarantee we will receive a slipcover for the price of these movies. As far as a home theater enthusiast, I love collecting movies, and with 4k, these new title slipcovers fall right into place for display. Once again, I've had to open a package to only receive SOME of what I ordered. It doesn't affect the movie experience... but I could've got this movie a long time ago at the local store, with the slipcover to display. I'll just have to bury this one also is the collection
Let me preface this review by stating I have never read any of the DC Comics with Wonder Woman. The only comic books I had ever read were the Archie comics with Betty and Veronica so I went into seeing this movie knowing next to nothing about the characters. My husband got me interested in the Avengers movies so we have seen most of those and I already had an interest in this kind of movie. I heard nothing but rave reviews for Wonder Woman so my husband and I went to see this movie last night based on my piqued interest of the characters and I'm so glad we did!
I did a little bit of research on Wonder Woman after we got home last night and everything I found matched what the movie showed. Before she became Wonder Woman, Diana is an Amazon princess on the island of Themyscira and is the daughter of Hippolyta. All of the Amazons live on a beautiful island, secluded from the rest of the world, and they train hard in preparation for the return of Ares, god of war. Diana witnesses her first glimpse of a man from the outside world and, from that point on, her life is forever changed.
As I said, I knew hardly anything about Wonder Woman or any of the characters but I was immediately immersed in the movie from the very beginning! Some notable faces are Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, and David Thewlis, the latter who played Professor Remus Lupin in the Harry Potter movies. I felt the acting was phenomenal and the special effects were superb. Diana gets immersed into the human world during the Great War (World War I) and there are even some humorous parts to the movie. This movie is classified as science fiction/fantasy since it's based on the DC comic of Wonder Woman and there's some romance in it as well.
My husband and I enjoyed this movie so much that I already had this Blu-Ray in my shopping cart before we left the theater parking lot! Some movies I don't buy since we won't watch them again but this is one I definitely will watch many times. I already had some interest in the graphic novel comics that are made into movies and have enjoyed both the Marvel and DC movies. If you have any interest whatsoever in those kinds of movies, I highly recommend seeing Wonder Woman. If you even have an interest in action/adventure movies and have time to go see it in the theater, I suggest seeing this movie. If you end up loving it like I did, you will likely want to buy it as well and now I can't wait for it to arrive!
Package came in good condition and on time nothing damaged, Wonder Woman is worth the price a great addition to the collection of Blurays, definitely worth the price.
This movie was spectacular ! Action packed and the 3D was stunning. Give this 5 stars ! I would recommend it to anyone.
PERFECT!!! Took 10 days to arrive in Thailand.
A new version of the Blu-Ray was added to Amazon on September 19th. This version does not contain a digital copy. That's why it's being sold for so much cheaper than the previous versions - it's basically the "Black Friday" version of the movie. While I think this is an awesome movie, I can't give more than two stars due to Amazon's bait-and-switch tactics.
The movie is great, which is why I tried to buy it. Ordered the combo and received the wrong one TWICE (Blu-Ray only instead of the 3-in-1). Not happy with Amazon on this one.
