    The plot wasn’t bad, the film was just flat out boring. It was a chore to finish this and it wasn’t even two hours long.

    What a vast improvement over the first film. Better story, better action, higher stakes. Plus, this film has a surprisingly emotional core that is carried throughout up to the final scene.

    "Wonder Woman" is not only the best DCEU film so far, it's a fantastic film on its own merits. It hardens back to classic action adventure films.

    Does it drag in spots? Sure. Is the third act a bit too bombastic? Sure.

    However, these are small criticisms in a movie that's largely fantastic. The movie is layered with the harsh truths of this world but also a lovely veil of compassion and love.

    Patty and Gal, thank you for this.
