Woman-led film a wonderful thing

"I think what's so awesome about Wonder Woman is that she's so inclusive, and she does not pay attention to any gender, race". To begin with it has a concrete story. Second, it has a strong female character in the central role - a rare thing indeed for any movie. Well, you don't see what that hand is hiding but the movie is, after all, only PG-13. There is also some gentle humour that prevents the proceedings from becoming too heavy to watch. She was originally Diana, the Princess of the Amazons whose duty it to save humankind from being destroyed by Ares the God of War.

Something of an unknown quantity when she was first cast, the statuesque Israeli model-turned-actress Gadot is simply astonishing in the title role - bountifully projecting equal amounts of tenacity, warmth, humour and overall awesomeness. "This time around, we did a lot of adjustments because I had to wear it for six months, six days a week, every week, so I had to feel really comfortable in it and be able to perform and move and fight".

"I'm both honoured and surprised at the position that we find ourselves in", she says. Unfortunately, those qualities are mostly missing from the rest of the movie as she is inserted into a story that paints by numbers instead of drawing outside of the lines.

The FBI added that it would "update this response as soon as possible". "That seemed to make sense to me". Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., is considered the front-runner to replace Chaffetz as oversight chair.

For those who don't know the plot line Gadot is the titular hero - Wonder Woman - who is forced to leave the island of Themyscira when United States military pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) washes ashore. "I didn't know much about it other than her being kind of an icon and what she looked like and it was Lynda Carter and all that". Gadot manages to convey all these emotions and do some insane fighting impressively. Chris Pine is charming and supports her ably, but it is the women who steal the show, from Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison to Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta.

Wonder Woman was produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers. "So it's nice now, finally after about 15 years of working in this business that I get to go back to what I originally liked to do".She called Jenkins "the biggest cheerleader of them all".
