Wonder Woman

Day 69 of the 100 Word Project

So I’m late to the party, as usual, but Wonder Woman is one of the better superhero movies I’ve seen. It also has very little competition in the category of “Best DC Comics Movie Not Named The Dark Knight.”

But what’s most impressive to me isn’t the fact that Gal Gadot is God-tier attractive, or that, at one point, her character kicks the top off a building (though that was sick, too). I also don’t really care that this was a female-centered movie directed by a woman. I mean, bravo, but that wouldn’t have mattered if the movie sucked. Which it didn’t. But I mentioned that already.

No, what I liked most about Wonder Woman is that it runs over two hours, and at no point did I stare at my watch and question if the scene I was watching needed to be in the movie.

It’s tightly plotted, well-paced and actually entertaining. I can’t remember the last time I said that about a comic book movie.

Also, Diana kicks off the top of a building. So. Sick.
