WONDER WOMAN (2017): Good…

As good a film as Wonder Woman is, I’m quite sure that I adore the trailer more.

This is probably the first time I’ve said I love a trailer more than I love the film, but without really meaning that the film is bad. The pace of this movie was OK and the humour was fun but there’s something about the film’s initial trailer that I just cant forget about – because it was super.

Of course the exceptionally chosen, perfectly rousing trailer music coupled with great editing, storytelling and visuals had much to do with it. Yet Wonder Woman’s crime, for me at least may be that the wonderful high I experienced as I watched the trailer simply wasn’t constantly present throughout the film. Not that I’m saying that would have been a great idea, mind you.

It’s just that there’s just no denying, for me, the noticeable absence of said high by the end of this movie. Instead of taking my hands to the air whilst silently yelping, so as not to annoy my neighbours – as I did the first time I saw the trailer; at the end of this movie, all I could say as teh credits started to roll was ‘It’s not a bad film‘.

Gadot is really great. She’s beautiful, strong, very capable and in my mind remains my big sister. You probably already have but I’ll still say it all the same, watch it because it’s good.

Happy Film Loving

      1. I think BvS is best watched when you’ve exhausted everything else – it’s so long…but having said that, I sat and watched the extended mix with my 11 year old and it made more sense…..so we ended up going…okay so that’s why that happened….
