Wonder Woman 2009 ~ Wonder Woman 2009
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. When an Army fighter pilot, Steve Trevor, crash-lands on the island, the rebellious and headstrong Diana defies Amazonian law by accompanying Trevor back to civilization. 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! --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

Much of the story is derived from George Pérez's 1987 comic book re-boot storyline "Gods and Mortals". However, it largely adheres to the original 1940's narrative of the character - which was told in the 1970's live-action TV series. As such, fans of Wonder Woman will be familiar with many elements of this tale. I think this portrayal of Diana, Princess of Themyscira, is very good - although I prefer how she's imagined in the Justice League animated series (voiced by Susan Eisenberg). Overall, this is an enjoyable superhero film, and is part of the DC Universe Animated Original Movie catalogue. It's suitable for older children and adults. For anyone interested, a good novelisation of this film is available: Wonder Woman.
There are really good extra's on this disc for those interested in the origins of this character. I found them to be very informative and was entertained where some of the ideas came from while she was being designed, espeically the lasso of truth. Its really cool how she came to be out of the certain things that were happening in society etc.
There are also extra episodes from justice league that have wonderwoman in it and they are brilliant too.
Most importantly this was a Wonder Woman that gave and took hits both verbal and physical. Here's hoping the live action movie manages to match the tone of this film, confrontational but complimentary.
P.S. The Nathan Fillion acting cringe is still there but the writing is good enough to cover for it.
It is a PG and I've watched this with my 4 and 6 year olds, some of the fight scenes are actually pretty graphic but its not inappropriate, it is definitely a PG though, there's the odd innuendo and a few scary moments, so weigh up your little ones ability to cope with bad guys losing their heads in battle, my kids however love this movie. Especially as finally Wonder Woman gets a quality treatment from DC finest writers and animation team, she's not just a bit part character, like in the Justice League TV show. As she's finally getting her own live action film soon, then there'll no doubt be more interest in the character, this is a great movie to start off that interest.
The decent script and its snappy dialogue make up for the somewhat 'BAM' 'WHACK' one-dimensional central plot. The characters and subplots are much more interesting - playing around with the Amazons' isolation, the interaction between Princess Diana and Steve, the social commentary on how tricky it is to be any kind of feminist today (male or female).
High points include the moment of unintentional emotional honesty brought about by an unexpected lasso interlude - and the spiky attitude of one of the supporting Amazon warriors.
It's all let down somewhat by the inevitable 'every problem is solved with a punch-up' plot, which rather undermines the notion that girls might do things differently. But then, going to war against the god of war is hardly logical...
