Critics weigh in on Wonder Woman!

A sweaty elevator full of critics were lucky enough to screen “Wonder Woman” (sounds like I’m referring to a bunch of momma’s boys visiting some kind of peep show attraction) earlier in the week but were pistol-to-the-head gagged as far as letting the world know what they thought of the long-awaited superheroine event.

The good news? Diana doesn’t have any underarm hair in the movie.

Better news? DC have their first decent movie in a long, long time (dare I say the first one since Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight Rises”?) by sounds.

Comparing it to classic Saturday matinee pulp efforts of yesteryear, and likening it to fellow superhero origin yarns “Thor” and “Captain America”, the adventure-movie throwback seems to have dampened briefs largely because of it’s humour, heart and appealing lead character. Some have likened Gal Gadot’s turn as Wonder Woman to Christopher Reeve’s in “Superman” – just as good, wholesome, non-emo take on a beloved superhero.

Here’s some of the feedback swirling around the twittersphere :

Sounds like congratulations might be in order – – and most of the praise to be directed towards both Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot.
