What is it about: It’s a super hero film based on the character of the same name from the cinematic world of DC comics. This film is directed by Patty Jenkins.
Why it’s disappointing: This could stay put for this movie.
What to watch out for: Super hero movies are the fantasies fed to us for generations and it never gets boring as everyone yearns for one to escape the reality. With the new extended universe of MARVEL and DC, the films have become better and have become entertaining on an interesting level. And this new stand-alone film from DC is one of the best from their stable.
Director Patty Jenkins had a panache for storytelling and she executed that in a very narrative manner, which puts the audience in to a trance hard to get out. She’s so convincing with her writing and takes you to the period effortlessly and displays a seamless travel. Her characters were equally convincing.
Gal Gadot, she seemed like was born to play this role. An amazing fit, which no one else could have pulled off. She brings a great zest to the character with innocence which attracts a genuine empathy on the character. Gal was delectable and her performance was top notch. I would just say commendable is an understatement for her.
Chris Pine as Steve Trevor was a great fit too alongside Gal Gadot. He has a nake for humour and does it effortlessly and did a great job in Wonder Woman.
Saïd Taghmaoui as Sameer, Ewen Bremner as Charlie, Eugene Brave Rock as Chief and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy were a beautiful supporting cast, who did their best.
The VFX was at its peak with amazing visuals and 3D was seamless. Obviously when you induce the quotient of IMAX, it becomes a treat to the audience. The sound design was crisp, cinematography by Matthew Jensen was delectable and the edit was sharp by Martin Walsh. And then we can’t miss to acknowledge Rupert Gregson-Williams score, which revs up the action situations in the film.
Verdict: Patty Jenkins, did a fantastic job in making an ORIGIN film. She held everything at a great pace and presented it at its best. And Gal Gadot tops it with her amazing performance. The transformation of Diana to an inspiring hero was fantastic. Definitely worth a watch, don’t miss this one, if possible catch it on a large format.
