Action flics are not my genre; I would never have gone to see WonderWoman if Louise hadn’t really wanted to and I said I’d go along. We saw the film last night, all 2 hours and 20 minutes, and I LOVED it. Grab your women friends and go. The star, Gal Gadon, is fabulous. House of Cards Robin Wright is in it, although she gets killed off fairly early. The Amazons in the opening scenes are strong, gorgeous women. All the best characters are female, even the evil genius scientist. The director is a woman.
The flic is like a feminist primal scream, and even if there are odes to love in it and even if the motley crew WonderWoman leads to victory are all guys, you know that if people die in the end it’s not going to be Our Girl.
The film tees up nicely for a sequel, and you know I’m going to be there.
