Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.

First: some lassos of truth. Sure, there are less clunky ways to demonstrate Diana’s pure lion heart without having her yell about believing in love about 30,000 times. Sure, the villainous Ares looks like someone melted an Sauron Sevens costume over an upright goat. Sure, the big CGI battle scenes can look hokey – especially when interrupted with a slow-mo Pantene ad hair flip.

But give it some piping hot rope, because Wonder Woman is the best DC extended universe film by a long fucking shot. It should come as no surprise that the women in this film are exceptional. Gal Gadot is a divine being. Robin Wright’s early training scenes on Themyscira got me Googling ‘free women fight club Auckland’ which is maybe the worst Google search that’s ever been done. Lucy Davis is so much funnier than her frumpy Mother Goose costuming seems to want to rely on.

That’s right, Wonder Woman is funny – sometimes it’s even Marvel funny! Despite some cringe lines that eventually clomp their way out of every character’s mouth, Chris Pine’s damsel in distress Steve Trevor and his merry band of misfits (ft. Ewen Bremner from Trainspotting) are all heart. The sappy romance might be a bit much for some, but there’s a sense of optimism and play in Wonder Woman that feels invigorating after the dismal death wheeze of more recent DC efforts.

Finally, there’s simply no understating the importance of hearing quotes like “be wary of men – they do not deserve you” in a genre (read: world) run by men. Compare that to the likes of “hey, why can’t I be in the Lego?” (Black Widow) or “hey, has that camera pointed up at my butt this whole time?” (Harley Quinn). This representation palaver still matters a tonne and if you don’t like it, you can gtfo the island. We don’t need you any more *hair flip*.

Like the recent GHOSTBUSTERS, there’s a temptation to overlook the faults and praise it for merely existing, but MONSTER director, Patty Jenkins, delivers a fun adventure, comic book origin story, and female-centric action blockbuster. There are issues, from some dodgy CGI and clunky dialogue, ill-defined villains and a messy third act throwdown, but that doesn’t stop WONDER WOMAN being easily the best of the DC superhero movies by a long lasso of truth. Gal Gadot is great in the lead, as are supporting cast, (Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, David Thewlis, Lucy Davis, Ewen Bremner, Lisa Loven Kongsli and Danny Huston), but the most fun’s to be had in Chris Pine’s character, embracing the traditionally female-in-peril role in a feminist role-reversal that’s played both for laughs, and to make a damn fine point. Eschewing the square-jawed, macho, seriousness that blunted DCs recent po-faced SUPERMAN movies, WONDER WOMAN is funny, fun and fantastical. Ignore those refusing to notice how much it nicks from Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA origin movie, because by doing so, this is the nearest DC have yet come to the colourful, comedic camaraderie of Marvel’s movies, and it’s all the more entertaining for it.

Dawn Of Justice proved [Gadot] could handle the kicking and the punching. Here, she gets actual honest-to-goodness dialogue, and invests Diana with excitable exuberance, bristling defiance and a disarming belief in doing the right thing. Hide

Gadot is entirely credible as the embodiment of Amazonian perfection, but there's only so much emotion her concerted brow-furrowing can convey.
