Rosamund Pike excels at playing slick, spitfire characters. I really wish Hollywood would utilize her more.
While the main plot isn't anything groundbreaking, the con that Pike's character runs is both interesting and believable. Things in the film quickly spiral out of control and it overall kept my interest.
"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.
