Positive Reviews: Wonder Woman1 year ago by Anthony Olivier in REVIEWS
Although trailers of D.C.’s Wonder Woman looks promising D.C. Fans are still skeptical on how the story of the goddess of truth will pan out on the big screen.
Fans can rest assure in knowing that director Patty Jenkins has been receiving positive reviews from people who have already viewed the film. Here’s are a couple of reviews written by several websites that have seen the film:
IndieWire — Kate Erbland
“Wonder Woman” is as much about a superhero rising as it is about a world deserving of her, and Diana’s hard-won insistence on battling for humanity (no matter how frequently they disappoint) adds the kind of gravitas and emotion that establishes it as the very best film the DCEU has made yet. There’s only one word for it: wonderful.
THR — Sheri Linden
Yet as with all comics-based extravaganzas, brevity is anathema to the Patty Jenkins-directed Wonder Woman, and it doesn’t quite transcend the traits of franchise product as it checks off the list of action-fantasy requisites. But this origin story, with its direct and relatively uncluttered trajectory, offers a welcome change of pace from a superhero realm that’s often overloaded with interconnections and cross-references.
Metro US — Matt Prigge
“Wonder Woman” isn’t perfect. It’s a little long. It has a too short, only so-so round-up-the-gang stretch, then proceeds to largely waste the great actors Said Taghmaoui and Ewen Bremner. The super-secret villain turns out to be as dull as in any Marvel outing. It doesn’t do nearly enough with a villain boasting the great, great name “Dr. Poison” (Elena Anaya). But the first “Iron Man” wasn’t perfect either. We don’t want to overburden a very good film with too many expectations. Setting a Cinematic Universe on the right track, telling a coherent and gripping story (unusual in this blockbuster age), mixing thrills and laughs and commentary with a cool hand and being a sterling example of what superhero movies can be will more than do just fine.
Uproxx — Mike Ryan
Wonder Woman is the fourth movie of the DCEU and it’s easily its best (and I say this as someone who liked Man of Steel). Wonder Woman will give hope to people hoping for a well-made DC movie – but it also puts even more pressure on Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Because Patty Jenkins just proved it’s possible to make a great DC movie.
Screen Crush — Matt Singer
Even with its issues, Wonder Woman is exciting, romantic, funny — and my favorite DC Extended Universe movie to date. With her courage and strength, Diana sets an example for everyone she meets, and she holds fast to her ideals even under great pressure. With any luck, she’ll provide similar inspiration to the directors of the DC Extended Universe in the years ahead.
There you have it! Wonder Womans plans to make some big numbers in the box office.
Wonder Woman is released this Friday.
