Won­der Woman

(★★★✩✩)

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
