Warm, compassionate, at times funny and lighthearted despite the grim setting of World War I, Wonder Woman is just what the DC Extended Universe has been missing.

Wonder Woman tells the origin story of the iconic superhero, Princess Diana of Themyscira (Gal Gadot). Born and raised on the island of Themyscira by an all-female group of Amazonian warriors, Diana is trained by her aunt Antiope (Robin Wright) to become a super warrior in hope of defeating Ares the God of War. One day, Diana rescues American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) from the ocean whose plane crashes off the shore of the island. Steve is a spy in the German army who works for the British government. After hearing him explaining about the war and the people’s sufferings, Diana decides to follow him to the war front, believing that she can stop the war.

The film spends its first 30 minutes on the island of Themyscira, focusing on Diana’s childhood and her relationships with her mother Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), and her aunt Antiope. This backstory is an important element in the origin story of Wonder Woman, providing a basis for her character development throughout the film. Because of this, however, the first act suffers slightly from slow pacing. Things take a while before kicking into gear with the battle between the German soldiers chasing Steve and the Amazonian warriors. Once Diana has reached London, and the film has identified its villains - German General Ludendorff (Danny Huston), whom Diana believes is Ares, and his chemist Doctor Maru, or Doctor Poison, (Elena Anaya) - the actions start to move at a faster and smoother pace.

Despite its setting being World War I, the film still offers lighthearted moments of humour and wit, something that was lacking in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as Man of Steel. The sequence of Diana trying on “normal” street clothes is delightful. So, too, is the group of mercenaries that Steve employs, played by Ewen Bremner, Eugene Brave Rock and Said Taghmaoui. They are almost like the Wonder Woman version of The Howling Commandos from Captain America: The First Avenger, but with more fully fleshed out personalities, even though they seem underutilised towards the end of the film. The chemistry between Diana and Steve is understated yet brilliant. Even though love is one of the film’s main themes and is the reason behind the most pivotal moment in the plot, the film never dwells too much on Diana and Steve’s relationship. The focus is on Diana through and through, and rightfully so.

Wonder Bros or director Patty Jenkins herself never marketed Wonder Woman as a ‘feminist’ film. But as a female-led movie where the female character is an active agent who determines the course of the story instead of being reduced to a passive object, Wonder Woman already does miles better than many comic book movies out there.
