Well, I went to see Wonder Woman in the theatres last night, since I heard it was an exceptionally good DC super-hero movie and thought I'd give my synopsis.

 

First of all, the movie, in fact, from a mere movie-making perspective is exceptionally well done... good acting, directing, screenplay, costumes, effects, script, dialogues, just about everything a good movie needs.

 

Some scenes were actually quite humorous, especially those where Diana (Wonder Woman) seems to have trouble adapting to modern society.

 

The fighting scenes were relatively violent from a Christian standpoint, moderate from a modern worldly standpoint with that special Zack-Snydery violence-glorification effect induced my a very meticulously designed combat choreography in combination with slow-motion to appeal to the eye of the viewer.

 

The story itself works heavily with elements taken from Greek mythology, including gods and amazons. The main protagonist employs powers that apparantly stem from this "divine" realm. So no more invisible space-ship.

******** SPOILERS AHEAD ********

 

The creepiest part is that the plot outline is that, ages ago, when Zeus created mankind, his son Ares grew envious and spiteful towards mankind and misled them into all sorts of darkness including waging war against each other. Zeus and Ares had a final battle in which Zeus sort of died or something and Ares had to disappear into hiding.

 

But Zeus left mankind the amazons in case Ares returned and would, again, try to destroy mankind using a great war.

 

Then, in about 1918, the amazons are engaged into the First World War and, as it turns out, Ares did return and inspire mankind to build great weapons of mass destruction to destroy each other.

 

So basically, a parable of Satan falling to earth in 1914 igniting World War I

 

After the final clash between Diana and Ares, which unleashes massive destructive forces and at the end of which Diana realizes mankind is capable of more than war, and that she believes in love yadda yadda,  the film suddenly employs Passion-style imagery as Zack Snyder already did in Batman V Superman

It so creeps me out when movie-makers decide to do this, but this time, I massively facepalmed and almost obliterated my 3D glasses.....
