A ground breaking film. This just proves that you don’t have to have male superheroes all the time. The script was well written with many witty one liners. It really comes across how the people working on this film really did care about the subject matter. Everything worked well with this film, as I have just mentioned about the script, the direction was brilliant and also not forgetting the costuming. You can also see how much everyone enjoyed making the film. The interaction and timing with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine was spot on. For instance there is a scene where there was a discussion in the boat about “the pleasures of the flesh”, apparently this was completely improvised. In order for Gal Gadot to do this role she trained for nine months and had to gain seventeen pounds of pure muscle. The music also bought the film to life and was very well done. There wasn’t one character that you took against to or didn’t like. Way back in 2005, Angelina Jolie was offered the chance to play the lead role, but she declined. Also all the visual effects were stunning. Seeing some of the locations has made me want to go and see it for myself. Most of the film was shot in various locations around Italy including the Amalfi Coast, Southern Italy. Some of the filming was shot in England e.g. all of The World War I scenes were filmed at Upper Heyford air base in Bicester, England. This film does have a very serious side to it as it reminds us about the horrors of the First World War. This film is banned in Lebanon because Gal Gadot is an Israeli citizen and Lebanon is officially at war with Israel. Already very much looking forward to Wonder Woman 2 which is scheduled for 2019.
