It's easily the best film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) thus far. But what does that mean when your yardstick is [Man of Steel, Batman vs. Superman, and Suicide Squad]?

Wonder Woman flips nearly every gendered superhero trope it encounters.

It's not difficult to see where this route is going, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable to watch. The simple power of love is the cornerstone upon which Wonder Woman is built. If it seems earnest, it's because it is.

Amid stunning visuals, well-crafted action sequences and a decent plot, Gal Gadot's nuanced performance speaks volumes.

As befitting the genre, Wonder Woman is heroic and spirited. The fighting sequences are spectacular, and the story is engrossing, uplifting and fun. There's even a bit of romance and humor amid all the action. [Full review in Japanese]

Gal Gadot has a talent for making every experience feel like it's her first - which, in Diana's case, it often is. She is remarkably alert. Her eyes and her face are always open; she's always receiving, learning, responding.

Until the battering finale, production designer Aline Bonetto and Jenkins focus the action so that even in the ravages of no-man's-land, the sound and fury signify something.

Hits the superhero sweet spot between new and familiar, funny and exciting, romantic and heroic.

"Wonder Woman" is a superhero movie, and it fulfills the heroic and mythic demands of that genre, but it's also an entry in the genre of wisdom literature that shares hard-won insights and long-pondered paradoxes of the past with a sincere intimacy.

Beauty, strength, goodness, bravery: These are your values, and here is how your values must look.

Jenkins tries not only to include men on Wonder Woman's side but also to make male viewers feel better about a woman saving them.
June 5, 2017
Jenkins and screenwriter Allan Heinberg have created an unassailable icon, one who fits into the pantheon with ease, and stands out like no other.

In common with Diana, there is a genuine wonder at work here. We rediscover the tropes of genre through her questioning eyes. And for once, the comic-book movie almost seems fresh again.
June 3, 2017
The final big action sequence, as now seems always to be the case, is a messy and overwrought CGI extravaganza. But at least the movie that precedes it involves actual characters-likeable ones, even!-exhibiting recognizable human emotions.

Invests Princess Diana with possibly the most genuinely heroic characterization of any modern cinematic superhero.
June 2, 2017
It's no small relief that 'Wonder Woman' is a decent piece of pop art, messy and unsuccessful in spots, yes, but engaging nonetheless, and an almost incalculable improvement on its predecessors in the "DC Extended Universe."

Wonder Woman embraces issues of female power and the need to turn from hate to love, war to peace in a mainstream delivery system. And the female lead is not solely a mother, sister, girlfriend or hooker, however gold her heart: wonder of wonders!

The action is crisp and thrilling, but more importantly, it's meaningful... In fierceness and sheer badass fighting prowess, Wonder Woman is a match for the other heroes in her franchise. But in courage and certainty, she tops all of them.
June 2, 2017
It's overlong at 141 minutes and suffers from too much origin story exposition and middling CGI effects, but it has a frisky, friendly spirit that perfectly aligns with its wide-eyed lead actress, Gal Gadot.
June 2, 2017
It's disappointing because Wonder Woman deserves better.
