Wonder Woman ★★★

Amazonian and WWI fight scenes: Great.

Gal Gadot: The only good bit of casting in the DCU?

David Thewlis: Least likely Mortal Kombat character ever.

It’s by far the best of the DCU movies, which have all been miserable. And although the others desperately tried, this one actually creates some lasting, iconic imagery and mythic feeling. But it’s still a messy, overwrought studio product. And it’s wondrous to me that the last two decades of superhero movies still haven’t produced a true classic* (with maybe one exception).

*Though, I enjoyed this homage.
