Wonder Woman

I was chatting about the Gadot Wonder Woman movie and hear it claimed that the biggest fault was the villians.

I, for one, felt that every single plot twist was visible a mile off, which that bothered me more. I have never read any WW comics and know of the character pretty much just from Linda Carter. (And the story here diverges from what I remember of that show.)

It was enjoyable for a comic book film, but you just have to keep those expectations low. I think it benefited from being about a very small cast of characters, rather than these N superheroes, plus assorted minor characters vs these M enemies, plus assorted minor henchmen. (Not naming Marvel's Avengers series by name, no, not me.)

I saw it in 3-D (because best showtime) and will confirm: 3-D unnecessary.
