To think I almost decided to skip the "Wonder Woman" movie. I'm a huge comic book geek. I love me some Batman and Wolverine for sure. Wonder Woman, however, never really did it for me. Never enough to buy a single issue of her comic, at least.
That was until Friday. After watching the "Wonder Woman" animated movie, I actually bought a Wonder Woman comic for the first time.
My decision to do this, as you might surmise, has everything to do with the movie blowing me the "eff" away. It stomped on my throat, impaled me with a broadsword, and then punched me square in the face. And I mean that in the best possible way.
From the epic opening battle scene, to, well, the epic closing battle scene, I was hooked, enthralled, and honestly could not believe I was watching a movie called "Wonder Woman."
At the the same time, though, it seemed right. It was brutally violent. Not so much gory, but there are at least two decapitations, a few snapped necks, several impalements, and coolest of all, a zombie Amazon army!
Beyond that, it was also very funny, thanks to a great, witty script and Nathan Fillion--of "Firefly" fame--voicing one of the main characters.
This was an epic movie in every respect and is a great introduction to Wonder Woman if you've never been exposed to her. If you're a fan already, you'd be hard-pressed to be disappointed by this. I'm a believer now and I'll definitely be picking a copy up this Tuesday when it releases.
