5 Reasons Why You Should Watch Wonder Woman

Finally, finally, we have a female superhero movie! I will never understand why it took Hollywood so long, but Wonder Woman is one of the best superhero movies I saw of late.

5 reasons why you should watch Wonder Woman:

1. Great fight scenes and girl power

There are a lot of awesome action scenes in this movie and they always include girl power. This on its own is very refreshing in the genre and has been a long time coming. Great action! Gal Gadot is the perfect Wonder Woman!

2. Plot twist I didn't see coming 

I'm usually pretty good at predicting plot twists but I really did not see this one coming! I love it when movies surprise me and Wonder Woman certainly did!

3. First World War and Dutch!

I just finished writing my thesis but I actually went to see Wonder Woman at the end of July, when I was spending whole days writing my Master thesis on First World War literature, which made the references and World War I scenery all the more interesting to me. I believe part of the story took place in Belgium and some extras were actually speaking Dutch! As my native language is Dutch, I loved hearing my language in a blockbuster, even if it were only a couple of sentences.

4. Great soundtrack

I love, love, love the soundtrack! In fact I started listening to it whilst working and writing on my computer. I adore movie soundtracks, so I have done this with several soundtracks before.

5. Humour

Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman grew up on an island populated by only women. When she travels to England, hilarious situations ensue because she continuously questions modern customs and her surroundings.

I highly recommend Wonder Woman, the acting is fantastic and the plot is entertaining. If you haven't seen it already, what are you waiting for? Go see it!

In case you are still not convinced, I am ending this post with a youtube clip. This is a link to one of my favourite scenes from the movie which includes fantastic music, great fight sequence and First World War scenery.

Have you already seen Wonder Woman? Or are you planning to? Leave your thoughts down below!

  1. I can't wait for this to come out on DVD. I'm really looking forward to seeing it!

  2. I didn't love Wonder Woman for the same reasons the masses did, but I definitely thought it was impressive, wonderful in terms of production and acting, and BY FAR, DC's BEST film yet. So looking forward to what's next for this franchise.

    (This coming from an overall Marvel fangirl. :D)

    So glad you also liked this one! (I'm just sitting over here ready for that DVD release.)

    1. I agree! I love the Christian Bale Batman movies but Wonder Woman is up there, my favourite superhero movie in years!
