I enjoyed this film although my only criticism this that it is far too long standing in at two and a half hours which it didn’t need to be. There are a lot of scenes which I didn’t think needed to be in the film. As much as I enjoyed it, I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first Wonder Woman film (2017). I think that Gal Gadot is a very good lead actor and when you watch her she is very convincing to watch. You know you are in a safe pair of hands when she is on screen. It was first reported by Variety that actress Gal Gadot was paid $10 million for this film. I enjoyed Kristen Wiig’s performance and thought she did an amazing job. Apparently, her role was first offered to Emma Stone but she declined. I think Kristen Wiig was the right actress in the end for that part she had to play. I enjoyed seeing Gabriella Wilde (Poldark 2016-2019) and lovely to see her in a role that is very different. The actress who played the young Diana performed all the required physical stunt work herself at the age of 12. This was because it was deemed that she did the job better than her own stunt doubles. It is a fun film to watch, plus if you have watched the first Wonder Woman film you should pretty much know what to expect.
