    Wonder Woman

    ★★★

    I really wish it lived to all the hype that surrounded it. It is a decent superhero movie, better than most DC movies and even some Marvel movies, and yet it lacked something to make me wish to watch it again.

If you have ever wondered just how many bad cops were then there, stick with the film till the end and you'll have your answer. Extraordinarily powerful movie! Everything was perfect: remarkably deep character studies, complex story, brilliant ambiance, design and setting, splendid score. This story about Hollywood rotten justice scene in fifties was originally written by James Ellroy - and if the characters in the book are…
