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 movie’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 with that said, Wonder Woman’s crime, for me, may be that the wonderful high I experienced as I watched the trailer from beginning to end wasn’t constantly present throughout the film. Not that I’m saying hat would have been a great idea. Yet the truth remains there’s no denying, for me at least, 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 post trailer viewing), at the end of this Jenkins’s movie I said out loud, ‘It’s not a bad film’.
Gadot is really great. She’s beautiful, strong, very capable and in my mind, my big sister.
You probably already have but I’ll still say it, watch it because it’s good.
Happy Film Loving
