I’m giving this a single star for the one scene that Billy Porter has. He was a fabulous fairy godmother, and his scene was the only watchable part of this entire mess. Camila can’t act, the decision to feature contemporary songs was cringe, the overall look/art direction was cheap, etc.
What a mess.
"Wonder Woman" is not only the best DCEU film so far, it's a fantastic film on its own merits. It hardens back to classic action adventure films.
Does it drag in spots? Sure. Is the third act a bit too bombastic? Sure.
However, these are small criticisms in a movie that's largely fantastic. The movie is layered with the harsh truths of this world but also a lovely veil of compassion and love.
Patty and Gal, thank you for this.
