Feature-length animated adventure for the ultimate female warrior. On the mystical island of Themyscira, a proud and fierce warrior race of Amazons have raised a daughter of untold beauty, grace and strength: Princess Diana (voiced by Keri Russell). When Army fighter pilot Steve Trevor (Nathan Fillion) crash-lands on the island, the rebellious and headstrong Diana defies Amazonian law by accompanying him back to civilisation. Meanwhile, Ares (the God of War) has escaped his imprisonment at the hands of the Amazonians and has decided to exact his revenge, intending to start a world war that will not only last for centuries but will wipe out every living being on the planet, starting with the Amazons. It is up to Princess Diana to save her people and the world by using her gifts and becoming the ultimate Wonder Woman.

Wonder woman, the most famous super heroine of them all, has been around for a little under seventy years now. She had a well remembered tv series in the seventies, but attempts to make a live action film about the character have all floundered.

But in the meantime, here's an animated version.

Basically it fulfils the same function as a tv pilot episode, as it's only seventy minutes long. It tells the origin of the character and gives her a super villain to battle, and sets things up for future stories.

Despite the relatively short length, it does manage to pack quite a lot into the running time. In case you don't know the story of the character - you'll have no problems getting into this if that's the case as it's completely accessible to those who don't read the comic - the amazons are a tribe of warrior women who fought a bitter war centuries ago, and were given an island of their own by the god zeus where they have survived hidden from the outside world to the present day. diana is daughter to the queen of the tribe, and she was magically created by the gods when her mother prayed for a child. when fighter pilot steve trevor crashes his plane on the island, diana wins the right to take him back to man's world. but at the same time ares, the god of war, has escaped from his long imprisonment on the island, and is plotting to bring about global catastrophe. it's up to diana to stop him.

This comes from the same team of animators who produced the 1990's batman cartoon and subsequent series featuring superman and the super hero team the justice league, and they are the best people for things like this because they do justice to the characters and provide quality animation with it.

After years of disappointment waiting for the promised new Wonder Woman movie I bought the animated movie with high anticipation having seen the justice league cartoons. I'm a life long Wonder Woman fan.

I enjoyed the first half of the movie most, it balanced the comic book genesis with that of the original film and TV series to keep both sets of fans happy. However midway through the film Wonder Woman is reduced to the roll of "damsel in distress", which for me was very disappointing and spoiled the story.

Another problem with the script was the inconsistency of her power levels which at times were equivelent to her present comic book persona but in other scenes more akin to the TV show. In fact Diana was not portrayed as being any stronger than Hippolyte her mother, who in many ways steels her limelight by taking on the most anticipated fight in the film, the revenge against their Amazon betrayer. This should really have been Wonder Woman's fight.

In terms of quality the voice talents are superb, the animation splendid and the humour weighted toward the more adult audience.

I only gave four stars but anyone new to Wonder Woman would probably score higher.

On the whole very good and the two disc set has great extras.

I look forward to more from the Amazing Amazon in the near future.

I am not a 'comic book geek', although I like this sort of thing. This being the case, one of my criteria when it comes to this sort of film is 'does it expect me to know a whole load about the continuity'? The film 'New Frontier' in this series was therefore somewhat of a disappointment, as it seemed to expect meto know something about a comic book series I haven't read and willprobably never read. I was glad therefore to find that this film requires only a cursory familiarity with classical mythology. The sory is retold with pace and panace, as well as a good amount of humour.

The plot is a fairly simple one. The Amazons live on an enchanted island, without men, after the god of war, Ares, started a war which wiped out all the Amazon men. Granted long life by the gods, the Amazons live into the present day, when US pilot Steve Trevor lands on the island, after his 'plane is shot down. Trevor is attracted to Diana, the daughter of the Amazon queen, while Trevor's appearance causes Diana to long to see the world outside. Ares breaks free and goes out to bring chaos and destruction to the world. Diana, in the guise of Wonder Woman, and Steve Trevor have to stop Ares before he destroys the world, and along the way they learn a few things about each other.

The film was pitched about right, able to reach children, teenagers and adults. It is a family picture, of the sort that I would not have been embarrassed to share with others. In short, it is just the sort of film that DC ought to be bringing out in this series, neither brain-dead nor self-indulgent.

The characterisation is just about perfect. I can heartily recommend this to anyone looking for an enjoyable film

Thanks to the old 70's TV show, Wonder Woman has always been my favorite superhero. And I freely admit how little I truly know about her. Even so, I am just now getting around to watching it. It was less than I'd hoped it would be, although I did enjoy it.

Diana (Keri Russell) has lived her life in seclusion as one of the fabled Amazons. She is bored with her idyllic island life and wishes to explore the world of man.

She gets her chance when a man crashes his plane on their island. That man is Steve Trevor (Nathan Fillion), and someone has to take him back to his home.

However, Ares (Alfred Molina), the Greek god of war who has been the Amazon's prisoner for centuries, uses this as a chance to escape. Now Diana as Wonder Woman must stop him before he destroys all of Earth. Can she, with the help of Steve, do just that?

I had never quite realized just how much Wonder Woman tied into Greek mythology, but all the references to the gods made me glad I've been reading the Percy Jackson books so I had some point of reference.

Like many origin stories, this one started slowly as they covered stuff I already knew. Once Steve and Diana got to the real world, it started to move more quickly. And the final battle was epic and enjoyable.

However, what wasn't enjoyable was the writing. While some of the lines came off well, many of them felt forced and unnatural. I'm not quite sure if it was the writing or the acting, but the voice actors didn't little to raise the material above the page. The exception was Nathan Fillion, who managed to make Steve the more real character in the movie.

And that's probably one reason why the relationship between Steve and Diana works so well.
