Review : Wonder Woman

wonder_woman_xlg

“Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.”

So just for full disclosure, I’ve had Wonder Woman’s theme as my phone ring tone, for like a year now, needless to say I have been nothing but super hyped waiting for this movie, and my expectations were super high. All that being said, this movie is pretty awesome. Gal Gadot, is honestly the greatest incarnation of the character we have ever gotten, and she brings everything to the role. She’s absolutely stunning, she brings the physicality, and she does excellent at playing both the strong, soft, and funny moments. However, she does have some help in here in a fantastically played secondary character in Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor. The two had a great chemistry and they played extremely well off of each other, especially in the softer more quiet moments in here. And even for all the great action in here, a lot of the best scene are honestly these soft, quiet, and subtle scenes between Chris and Gal (and some others with the other supporting cast). Like I said before though, the action in this movie is here, and its very well done. The film itself is also absolutely stunning when it needs and wants to be, doing a great job at juxtaposing the colour and vibrance of places like Themyscira, against the drab and dull world of man and of war. Wonder Woman is truly a film firing on all cylinders here, from acting, to action, and everything in-between. All in all, I think this movie will be a bit of a game changer, and come Monday, will likely be the most successful female directed and lead film we’ve ever seen. Go see it right now!

Unbreakable:

Unbreakable%20-%203

The younger generation out there, probably shudders in fear at the mention of the name M. Night Shyamamamamalan, known best for making garbage movies like The Village and Avatar the last airbender. The year 200 however, was still a great time for the man who made the twist ending a huge deal, and that was the year that Unbreakable came out.

Unbreakable-1

In many ways it was a movie ahead of its time. It dealt with an idea we are all too familiar with now, but at the time was really something different. It was a look at the idea of superheroes and supervillains, and the relationship between them. It was also a serious look at these ideas and these relationships played out before us, without mention really of superhero nature of it until the very end. It also gives us a really good look at the concept of what becoming a hero entails.

On the other hand, it also gives us a great look into the mind of a villain, and how those labels really come about, and let me just say, it’s not always as black and white as it seems. The acting and, and I stress the AND here, and directing are really top class. They create this tone and manage to keep the tone of seriousness and intrigue throughout the entire film. A movie certainly worth your time if you’ve never seen it before, and worth a re-watch if you have.

Cheers
