Wonder Woman (2017)
"Wonder Woman" is a film made in 2017, directed by Patti Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright and David Thewlis. It's been regarded as the longest film of 2017 with a duration of 141 minutes. It's one of the DC superhero films made in the same time period along with "Batman and Superman" and "Justice League".
Wonder Woman is Diana, the daughter of Hippolyta the queen of the Amazons, and Zeus the god of Olympus. She was raised in Themyscira, an island paradise and trained since childhood to become a ferocious fighter. The secret of Diana is revealed later when she uses the "god killer" sword against her arch enemy, Ares, god of war. It was all believed that Ares is responsible for the conflicts among mortal men, and to destroy him would end war, as Diana and the Amazons believed.
She follows a mortal man named Steve, and ends up in a very different place during the First World War. Steve was rescued from drowning by Diana, so there was a connection made.
Diana and the Amazons fighting against modern soldiers with guns and beating them was pure fantasy, absurd and unrealistic, but then again Amazons and Wonder Woman are more powerful. The rest of the movie slowly grinds down and fills up with gas, innuendo, brittleness and painful explosives. I rate this movie a 7/10.
The best scene of all was watching Diana get the better of the officials in office.
