In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when a pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers and her true destiny.
The movie starts, in Paris, in the morning as Diana goes to her office in the Louvre Museum. Upon looking at the photo sent to her by Bruce Wayne, we see her flashback memories (i.e. the entire movie that we see). When the flashback ends, it is now nighttime outside when we see her on the rooftop in her Wonder Woman outfit. This suggests that she spent the entire day thinking about all that happened 100 years ago. A flashback in her mind, in real time, couldn't possibly have taken all day. See more »
I used to want to save the world. This beautiful place. But I knew so little then. It is a land of beauty and wonder, worth cherishing in every way. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness simmering within. And mankind? Mankind is another story altogether.

As subtle as the bricks she wrecks with her fingertips( Shortly after being knocked to the ground by a mere mortal in combat training)
Insanely amateur writing, directing and cgi. completely miscast. Gal has very limited range and seems more like a privileged catwalk model with two facial expressions and no muscular definition, than an Amazonian warrior. She will get away with this due to the fact that mediocrity often receives high praise nowadays as people demand more polish and less substance. Shows like the X factor are no doubt partially responsible.
The 3 main villains have no depth and deliver their lines abysmally. The director and producers must be to blame for at least some of this.
Chris Pine, whom I usually quite like, was pretty pointless and unnecessary.
The story is such a pool of bile that its impressive only for it's terribleness. It is a twisted wreck of clichés the like of which we HAVE seen before, only maybe not quite this bad!
I write this as a pro equality male with no anti feminist agenda and am honestly disappointed and annoyed that a movie that could have been a great vehicle to bring a heroine with a message of hope to the big screen to counteract all the recent dark and testosterone ridden nonsense, has turned out to be a pink tractor with no wheels and an exhaust that spews bull's faeces
It this is the kind of movie that is getting more positive than negative reviews on sites like metacritic and rotten tomatoes, then I am glad to consider myself out of touch with the critics.
May whatever god you believe in, have mercy on your soul as humanity degrades around you!
I can't believe how bad this is. I mean. They've reached a new low.
