    Neither the Wal-Mart nor the Future Shop in my province got any copies (not encouraging), so I'll have to order it online.

    I'm not seeing this for rent at my local Blockbuster or Hollywood Video. Any legal way to view this short of buying it? Itunes maybe?

    You can rent it from Amazon or On-Demand if your cable provider has it on their service.

    I was lucky enough to see this film at the NYCC09. I was really surprised how fun and entertaining it was. It's probably one of the very few films I actually want to buy. My only problem I had with this film is that it was too funny. Not that comedy in DC film is bad, I'm not really the dark and serious type but there were times I thought I was watching a romantic comedy. With the occasional beheadings. I look forward to the Green Lantern animated flick.

    This was awesome. This proves Wonder Woman can be brought to modern times, it gives me hope that one day we will get a live action movie, maybe just a little edgier/darker. Wonder Woman is a great super hero and Cheetah looked awesome!

    I don't know if re-posting identical posts is bad-form here or not, but since this is the official discussion topic I wanted to re-post what I said in the old one. If that's not cool just let me know. Anyway here's what I had to say:

    Wow this is totally the best DCA movie to come out thus far. It totally trumps the first three by far. The ending was a nice surprise aswell, I do hope they make a sequel to this or even spinning out an Animated Series would be great since they set it up to perfectly.

    I didnt get that sense from the movies depicition (which you have to remember they only had a limited time to tell the story and people want action in their movies). The amazons were warriors when they needed to be, but other then that it is not as if they went around killing everything they saw, they trained with one another when need be and other than that went on with their way. We saw Amazons having fun in the water, relaxing, we still saw Amazons on the island while the rest were coming to Dianas aid. And anyone would feed Ares' hunger for war, its not as if they could beat him with peace just standing there calmly talking to him. Ares was planning on taking over the world and they did what they had to do. Plus they werent worried about mans world yet, their goal was to return Steve and bring back Ares.

    Now the ending set up WW as someone who tries to keep peace and battles when needed. There is still a lot to grow from.

    I picked mine up at Best Buy for 22 plus tax...I got the 2 Disc Special Edition DVD with Figurine, and the packaging is great...but WHY must Best Buy, WalMart and Target ALL put those stickers on the cardboard sleeves of EVERY movie I get?!?!?!?!?!

    Those price tags are the bane of my existence...

    Just got the DVD in the mail today!
    Amazon hooked a brother up with some early shipping!
    Pre-Ordered it a while ago, so maybe that helped.

    Just picked mine up at Target for 19.99 which is a a solid deal for the 2 disc SE. Had no idea that Target included Maid of Honor on the first disc so that's a real treat. Can't wait to see it!

    You. Go. Girl.

    I finally got to see the film just now, and let me just say:
    THIS IS THE WONDER WOMAN I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!

    This beats the DCAU one by a billion miles. Not just Diana, but Hippolyta, and all of the Amazons. Why, oh why, was this NOT in the DCAU? This movie just rocked! The writing included a strong story, the feminist angles weren't over the top but had the right balance, it included humor between Diana and Steve; basically everything here was done just right, and had these characters done in the right way, enough for me to show why I love Wonder Woman.

    Now, on the parts they took to make the movie, it is a combo of multiple things: the bondage joke from the Golden Age, how they talk about the lasso is the only thing that reminded me of the Lynda Carter series, while everything is a mixture of George Perez and post-Crisis. Now, from what another person said of not using the best parts of Perez on this: it doesn't matter. Yes, he was great on Wonder Woman, and Perez' Wonder Woman is my #1 favorite, period. But, this movie was handled well and was so good, that complaining on that doesn't make sense. In fact, while the ending to Perez' first arc with Diana showing Ares with the lasso what will happen if he succeed in his plan was smart, how this movie played out, you didn't need that ending.

    But anywho, this movie was so good, it was worth the wait. Now...WHAT'S TAKING THE LIVE ACTION FILM SO LONG?!

    And now, we prepare for Green Lantern: First Flight.

    BTW, my favorite line:
    "It's not polite to hit a lady."

    And are we suppose to believe that Ares son is also Hippolytas? They kind of made it seem that way, that it was forced upon her.

    Ok, I wanted to watch this a second time to make sure that my opinion hadn't changed from watching it the first time while half asleep at around 2:00 AM after just getting home from Walmart. This is definitely the best of the four DC Universe films. Outstanding character designs and voices. I don't think I would say that I liked her design with Keri Russell providing the voice more than the Justice League/JLU design with Susan Eisenberg providing the voice. But both versions were outstanding. The only thing that I wasn't all that crazy about was one thing:
    I didn't want to spoil that for anyone who hasn't gotten around to seeing the movie yet. But that wasn't anywhere near enough to change my opinion on the film. I gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Great movie.

    Excellent FILM!

    Great movie.
    It was a lot of fun.
    The Greek Mythology was played up real nice.

    Wonder Woman was excellent.
    Its a really good take.
    Loved how Hippolyta did not react much after
    Diana took the helmet off revealing herself as the winner.

    The story was paced very nice
    & had a good blend of action & drama.

    Loved the thing in the park, Star Trek 4!
    The drunk was funny too!
    Its a rewind moment.

    My only problem with the script was Steve Trevor.
    Not all Air Force pilots are Frat Boy Howard Stern types.
    Most of the real Air Fotce pilots I have meet are more like Clark Kent.
    They could have pulled back a little.
    He was playing the pig card for way too long.
    It seemed he did not start acting normal until way later in the movie.
    IMO he totally did not deserve the hot make out he got from Wonder Woman at the end.
    Anyway the Steve Trevor in this flim sets Men in America back a few steps.
    But not anymore then some greasy hip hop dude does.

    Music was great. Epic timeless sounds.
    Thank god there was no music that will date the thing.
    (MOTP closing credits, MOTBW etc......)

    The voice acting & production on this film is also epic.
    As its been for the last 17 years with DC animation.
    Starting with Batman TAS, the VA & production values have
    always provided a great foundation for these productions as whole.
    Duh?
    No new information there.

    Anyway Andrea Romano rocks & should get a lifetime
    achievement award from all the cartoon geeks for
    giving them a reason to live. Bruce Timm too!
    He rocks as well!

    The Animation in this movie like all
    the DC DTV's is the best in the biz.
    Period.

    Personally I''m not a big fan of corporate media mergers,
    however sometimes I wish WB would buy Marvel so
    Bruce Timm & Andrea Romano could do a good Spider-Man cartoon.

    You know that would just be too damn cool.

    Over all EXCELLENT FILM!
    Besides New Frontier, this is the best one yet!
    Totally worth the 20 bucks!

    So far my second favorite movie after JL New Frontier. Excellent movie, really.

    Best to less favorites:
    1. JL New Frontier
    2. WW
    3. Superman / Doosmday
    4. Batman Gotham Knight (It is a DC Universe movie but for me its existence is still unbased :sweat: )

    Im sure GL will top at least SD...or even top JL New Frontier! :anime:
