Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars origin of an amazon 12 Sep 2009
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 17 Aug 2009
By Mr. Gtj Charmley VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Interpretations! 24 Feb 2009
Format:Blu-ray
The wait is over and we finally have a more than respectable version of Wonder Woman straight to dvd!
Long time comic fans will be happy with what has been delivered. The only problem is that we are left with wanting more!
There are many memorable moments in this cartoon with its strong messages of the fight against war and terrorism to a certain element of feminism as well but luckily not too much! Steve Trevor and Artemis add the comedic element in what is an adult tale. I hope this leads to allot more to come for the amazing amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining 7 April 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this one slipped under the net for me, I hadnt heard anything about this though noticing it and seeing how cheap it was I decided to give it a go.

It was thouroughly entertaining, quite adult in its humour and action, this certainly is not a kids movie.

definately worth a watch though!

Great retelling of the origin story for Wonder Woman. The 12 rating is about right, there are some scenes of violence that would be best avoided by little children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Wonderful 31 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
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.
