I'm cool with that idea, @Zedd! Go for it!
I checked it off. @hobbyfan, you should be able to change your vote now.

Was that before or after she tapped into her god powers? I forgot.
She did twice I think? In Veld after they charged No Man's Land then when Ares was goading her into killing Dr. Psycho. I think it was before she tapped into her god powers and torched him.

If so, that would make her base strength level at least greater than Spider-Man's. Time will tell what her upper limit might be.

As for the movie itself, it was ... wow. :) Of all the DCEU films - including the future Justice League - I expected it to be potentially the most critical acclaimed. The trailers gave me the impression it would be story-driven, compared to the trailers of the other DCEU movies. I did not expect it to be so *greatly* acclaimed. And it delivers too. But I'm skeptical that Justice League will be just as good. I can only hope that it'll be better than BvS.

The filmmakers did choose the right examples for their sources of influence. When the "Wayne Enterprise" truck showed up at the beginning of the film, I could have sworn I heard a variation of Elfman's 1989 Batman theme mixed with Zimmer & Howard's Batman Begins theme? Diana's fight on No Man's Land is beginning to remind me of Batman taking on a big gang at the harbor in Nolan's film. Even the ending, while different, is a similar level of spectacular: Batman stands on top of Falcone's limo with his "I'm Batman!", while Diana stands on top of the watchtower like a proud, victorious warrior.

Donner's Superman influences are very obvious. One that stands out is the gun-toting confrontation in the alley, which almost mirrors Superman's: they are forced deeper into the alley, 'love interest' sets up the first gunshot, Diana "catches" the bullet, bullet lands on a hand. Only difference is Diana didn't pretend to faint. During the battle with Ares, Steve tells Diana, "I can save the day, you can save the world". It made me think about the 1970's TV show theme song where a line goes "Change their minds, and change the world." Ok, it's a stretch, but that's what I thought about. Steve's (Trevor) sacrifice at the end is almost the same as the other Steve's (Rogers) in The First Avenger, except the latter was presumed dead.

I do agree with everyone about the excessive slow-motions and the conventional final battle. Personally, I think the music could be muted down a bit. At times, it's a distraction. All in all, I walked out of the theater smiling. Very impressed.

After 3 lackluster movies, WBDC finally hits a homerun with WW.
Gal Gadot was everything I wanted to her to in her portrayal of Diana Prince.
Chris Pine was excellent as Steve Trevor.
Downside because of the time period we will never see Trevor again.
Unless the movie Flash likes to muck around with the timeline as much as his TV counterpart does. :confused:

Gets a solid 'A' from me.

Well, the TV Steve Trevor of the '70s was supposed to be the son of the WWII Trevor.

Pine's Steve Trevor likely won't be showing up again anywhere unless he scrounged up a grenade and a parachute at the last possible second.

Found this little website about German tanks during WWI. The lightest is the LK I with an operating weight of 7 tons, which would put Diana's base strength level in at least the 25-ton range. Unless Ares magically reduces the weight of the tank to a level that she can manage. :cool:

It seems like this movie has really hit at the right time and I'm glad to hear it is expected to top the box office again this weekend. I plan to see it again in the next week or so, hopefully in 2D.The movie was the talk of the comic shop on Wednesday and the Steve Trevor one-shot that came out this week actually sold out. A few people I know who have seen it twice says it's actually better the second time around. Still needs a couple nips and tucks but overall a solid movie. Can't wait to watch it again. I haven't been so enamored and happy with a movie for so long, maybe as far back as the first X-Men or Spider-Man movies.

Well, she did level that belltower. I just hope they keep track of that from film to film. Hopefully, Thor won't be struggling to take on Hulk in Ragnarok. Unless, he's told to make the fight entertaining. Anyways, we need to see her really let loose on apokilips.

So I just got back from finally watching this movie; and I thought it was okay. Not the best interpretation of the character for me, but I enjoyed it; definitely better than the previous DCEU films and perhaps the best to date. Though I still prefer the animated movie over the newer one.

This is the second DCEU movie I've seen (the other being Man of Steel) and the first I saw in theaters. The reason I saw it because not only were the reviews good, I knew this wasn't going to show up on Netflix or Hulu later.

Anyhoo, I'm glad I did. It was a great adaptation, the action was cool, the characters were fun. Enjoyable all around. I can only hope Justice League is as good. I kind of want to see Batman v Superman now, but I heard it's REALLY bad.

Also, that DC films logo is awesome! Marvel should take note. There's is too long.
