That's not to say that this movie or the updated character of Wonder Woman is without flaws.
The action and the animation is really good, but as some other reviewers noted some scenes are graphic showing blood and killings, and so if you have small kids it might disturb them. I thought that those scenes were appropriate, but I'm an adult.
And I found the story a little odd as well because the big battle happens between the amazons, Ares (the God Of War), and mythological creatures, and it all takes place in the present day in Washington D.C., at some very historical sites like the Vietnam Memorial wall and the Lincoln Memorial. But all of the modern people are absent from these scenes, including reporters, so that was very strange. I kept wondering where are the people? Where are the reporters? Where are the looky-loos with their camera phones?
Another pet-peeve was during the contest they didn't show "bullets and bracelets," which was part of the amazon competition to find who would be the emissary to escort Trevor back to "man's world," but they did show WW deflecting bullets when she comes into the city. And they don't show how Diana becomes WW, she's basically wearing the costume under her clothes like Superman. Boring! They should have done the spin or the lasso from the comics, to get her into her costume.
And the character herself seemed a little aloof. I was introduced to Wonder Woman through the Lynda Carter TV series Wonder Woman - The Complete First Season and I read the comics during the 70s and 80s, but Carter's characterization is so firmly cemented in my brain and that might be why I find this character a little distant. Steve Trevor was a little annoying, too. But those are small problems.
Other than that, the movie is cool and the extras are worth it.
On DVD #2 you get:
=== Wonder Woman: A Subversive Dream--(25:25-Minutes)===
Discusses how creator Marston got the idea for Wonder Woman and how the comic book character has influenced pop culture.
=== Wonder Woman: Daughter Of Myth-- (25:35-Minutes) ===
Talks about the evolution of Wonder Woman from the Greek Myths to the television series with Lynda Carter.
Also includes two Justice League cartoons "To Another Shore" and "Hawk and Dove" that both feature Wonder Woman as the lead character.
I hope that another WW DVD will be coming out soon.
