Directed by Patty Jenkins, who helmed the Oscarwinning Monster (2003), Wonder Woman isa compelling and stunningly shot exploration of the origins of the female superhero. Gal Gadot (pictured, Fast & Furious) commands the screen as the titular character, with a welcome emphasis on her strength and conviction, rather than her beauty. Set during World War I, Gadot is in her element as the fierce warrior trying to stop a global threat, while also discovering her true destiny. It’s a fun, thoughtful, passionate and often disarmingly humorous blockbuster that features spectacular battle sequences and more than a nod to female empowerment.
