Just a few words on Wonder Woman that is currently available to rent for just £1.99 on Amazon Prime.
I was appalled by the trailer as it appeared to show the heroine, Diana, fighting Germans in the trenches in World War 1. An idea as ridiculous as it tasteless. Despite the gushing reviews I didn’t see it in the cinema and have just caught up with it now.
Surprisingly the best part of the film was the more low key parts when Diana reaches London and is recruited into the war effort. Before that there is an interminable sequence in Amazonia.
The final act is exactly the same big confrontation that occurs in every super hero movie. If I see one more shot of someone jumping in the air in slow motion before launching an attack on their combatant, I will scream!
Gail Godot does fine in the lead role but the material is very thin.
Rating:4.5 out of 10
