FINALLY, there is a superhero movie that is not just about the guys! The idyllic life of a race of women on a mystical, secluded island is threatened when a soldier, Steve Trevor, crash lands his plane into the sea just beyond their shores.
Diana, daughter of Queen Hippolyta, rescues him, but he has been followed by German troops and a battle breaks out. Finding out about World War I through him, Diana follows Steve back to the frontline to try and restore peace to the world.
Yes, the plot does sound rather farfetched, but it has superb fight scenes, some amazing scenery and splendid costumes, and good-looking characters. There are also funny moments, like when Diana accidentally chances upon Steve taking a bath in a rock pool on the island, that make the movie worth a watch. – Ming Teoh
