Wonder Woman (2009) - Film Capsule

Heroine: Wonder Woman

Villains: Ares and Hades

Diabolical Schemes: Ares, God of War, draws power from warring humans and hopes to become all powerful by influencing humans to start a nuclear war.

Coolest Moment(s): There are a couple of nice beheadings and some nice mythological monsters that get sliced and diced.

Worst Moment(s): Both Ares and Hades designs were pretty weak and unintimidating.

Comic Book Logic: It really didn't make sense to me why everyone just decided that it would be a good idea to show up in Washington D.C. for a big battle. And I may be wrong, but D.C. isn't on the ocean is it? Because I don't know if an Amazonian Navy could just come right up the Potomac. Then again, I'm no geographer.

Review in 50 Words or Less: Great way to reintroduce and modernize what sometimes seems like an outdated character. There was plenty of action and comedy and Wonder Woman was a lot more likable here than in Justice League. Steve Trevor was also well done in this solid entry in the DC line. Bring on Cheetah!
