The latest entry into the DC Cinematic Universe has arrived, with Wonder Woman Reviews now hitting the internet, ahead of the film’s commercial release. Starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, Wonder Woman is the second time that DC’s Flagship Heroine has made an appearance in the DC Cinematic Universe, ahead of the high-profile release of Justice League, where Wonder Woman will appear alongside Batman, Cyborg, Aquaman and more. With all the anticipation rising, let’s see what critics make of this big-budget blockbuster.
Critics have been highly favourable of the film, which has had a troubled production, after Gal Gadot was originally slated to star in a Wonder Woman TV Show, which also had a pilot filmed but was ultimately scrapped once the plans for a DCEU came around. Luckily, it seems to have all worked out. At the time of writing, Wonder Woman currently is sitting at 96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
“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.” -Empire
“In a genre where fanboy entitlement regularly calls the tune, Wonder Woman’s feminism feels like a rarity. Time will tell whether Hollywood [will be] in the thrall of a heroine addiction. But as the credits rolled, I was already craving another hit.” – The Telegraph
“Wonder Woman is smart, slick, and satisfying in all of the ways superhero films ought to be.” – Entertainment Weekly
“Like the heroine at its center, Wonder Woman the movie rises with powerful grace above the noise. It’s not perfect, but it’s often good, sometimes great and exceptionally re-watchable.” -Associated Press
“Gadot turns in a terrific display as the titular protagonist, carrying an infectious sense of optimism and wide-eyed wonderment while ensuring it never once cheapens her sheer power and ability to fight.” -HeyUGuys
