DC's latest superhero film starts off strong, with Gal Gadot proving a worthy leading lady, but Wonder Woman still falls victim to some of the tropes as other origin stories.
PROS
Beautifully designed costumes; Strong lore and mythology; Gal Gadot's overall performance
CONS
Loses track near the end; Suffers from too many tropes
VERDICT
As far as superhero origins go, Wonder Woman is a solid effort, with this character's solo film long overdue. The movie starts strong, but eventually suffers from some of the stereotypical elements seen in films of the same genre. Luckily, the action (especially early on) as well as Gal Gadot's performance are enough to hold the audience's attention.
