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]

"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.

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.

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!

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.

Many big ideas are juggled, and while the story doesn't exactly drop them, it does flail about a bit. Still, Jenkins has an eye for moving moments, Gadot is great fun to watch, and there's genuine visual panache to be found amid the combat and comedy.

Gadot radiates the goodness without sentimentality or wide-eyed winsomeness. Supergirl she ain't. SuperGal she certainly is.

The real strengths of this production are its lead actors, the period piece setting, and an unexpected emotional resonance that one doesn't expect from a popcorn movie.

Gadot does succeed, against heavy odds, in creating a fresh figure of heroic morality and might, engaging an audience with an earnest character's discovery of herself and the world.
June 1, 2017
Wonder Woman has action, humor and heart, as well as strong performances across the board, especially from Gadot and Pine.

Gadot ... exudes superhero charisma, which powers her through a clichéd last chapter.

Suffering Sappho! Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" is that rarity: a superhero movie with a heart.
June 1, 2017
Wonder Woman is a cut above nearly all the superhero movies that have been trotted out over the past few summers.

Except for the title, Patty Jenkins's big-hearted blockbuster doesn't use the name Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is singular. Wonderful women are manifold, and hopefully they'll fill theaters alongside some wonderful men

This is a movie about battling evil that pauses to ask what evil is and whether it's necessary to understand its nature in order to defeat it.
June 1, 2017
The character of Wonder Woman enters the almost exclusively male domain of DC comics movies... Under this pressure, Jenkins comes through with a work that radiates confidence and sangfroid.
June 1, 2017
We can overlook how the third act yields to the blows-up-good formula of blockbuster franchises. For now, let's just celebrate a superhero movie that runs on estrogen rather than testosterone.

The moviegoing world deserves the best that Hollywood can deliver, and this time we've pretty much got it.
