Wonder Woman ★★★

The first real blockbuster having a female superhero at its center, "Wonder Woman" is at bits a lot of fun, but at other times very disappointing. Gadot has the charisma, charm and physicality that the role demands, even if the lack of acting chops might harm some more emotionally laden scenes. The action sequences in the island of amazons are exhilirating, but the slow-mo fights get tiresome pretty fast. It's definitely an important movie, but the greatest superheroine of DC deserves much more.
