DVD Film Review by Kayleigh - Wonder Woman
After a few attempts at making a successful “Wonder Woman” film, Warner Brothers finally hit the mark. Wonder Woman has some difficult shoes to fill as one of the most female empowering characters in history. Gal Gadot did a spectacular job of portraying this phenomenal character. Gal starred as the lead protagonist (Wonder Woman) alongside Chris Pine (Steve Trevor).
Diana (Wonder Woman), Princess of the Amazons, takes on a journey of self-discovery. She has grown up on an island inhabited only by female warriors. Her mother, the Queen, tries to protect her from the violence of war but Diana’s pure stubbornness drives her to choose her own path. She trains as a warrior and discovers her undeniable strength.
Steve then crash lands near the island and Diana rescues him from the sea. As the island is invaded by Germans, Steve fights by the Amazons side gaining Diana’s loyalty. The Amazons learn about the World War that they believe Aries has started, they refuse to accept their prophesised duty to stop him so Diana and Steve set out on a mission to end the war. During this time Diana learns about the sexism that plagues the world and continues to be a strong, powerful woman, rather than conforming to the standards women lived by in that time. She does not have an interest in how she looks, despite her beauty, or the way a “Lady” should act. She chooses to wear what is comfortable and easy to move in rather than what is fashionable. This is a key feature to her character.
What she learns throughout this film are shown in the opening and closing monologues. It is a powerful emotive storyline. It shows that women can be just as powerful and skilled as men, while also showing that through the madness of the world, peace, kindness and love can be found if it is fought for.
In order to play a character like Diana, the actress needs to express confidence and innocence. Gal Gadot is an incredibly talented actress who has brought Diana to life. Patty Jenkins also had a huge part in this process, as the director. Having a female director definitely helps when it comes to creating a relatable female protagonist. She would have been able to ensure that the small details that made Diana a realistic woman were included rather than creating an idealistic fantasy.
I enjoyed this film style, opening and closing with Diana telling her story adds an extra narration that focuses on the key elements of the film, which in turn allows the audience to feel the directors/writers desired effect. We got to see a montage of Diana’s training through the years, this focuses on her growing strength and determination, as well as the hard work she put in to being a warrior. Each clip was short, but unlike most montages I’ve seen, it shows dialogues that are clearly separated rather than merged together in a blur. This allows us to further see her development and was a smart technique to use.
Throughout the film they kept the two ideas of Aries controlling the war and humanities own destruction separate, making Diana appear ignorant and as though her beliefs aren’t quite what they appear (however, she stays true to this for the entirety of the film). Towards the end of the film both points are blended together, Aries appears as real while also confirming that people can be cruel and villainous.
There are many aspects that make this a great film. The characters, plot, special effects, and the general concept exceed expectations. I knew from the trailer that I would enjoy watching this but I wasn’t aware how much I would fall in love with it. Definitely a 5-star film, if you haven’t seen it yet I would highly recommend it.
We shape our own destiny, no one else can do it for us. Be a Wonder Woman.
May all your creative wishes come true…
