I just came out of the movie theater and I HAD to do a review on Wonder Woman. I’m not going to spoil anything so you can keep reading. I always hate it when there are spoilers on reviews so I’m not going to spoil the fun for you.
This movie was THE BEST ever!! I know, I know, so far this is hardly a serious review. But trust me, is hard to keep my cool when there is something as amazing as this movie going on.
Let me start this review by saying that it is SO important for us women to have such a strong and badass female superhero out there. In a world where female superheroes don’t get their own movies (I’m looking at you Black Widow) because we are a nice “sidekick” but we are not important enough; having Wonder Woman is a game changer. What’s the message you are sending to every little girl or teenager when they only see a male superhero in charge? Well, it says “you are not strong or important enough” loud and clear. And it hurts, it hurts so bad.
Because yes, I know we now have Black Widow, Scarlett Witch, Harley Queen and a brief Cat Woman in Christopher Nolan’s Batman, but until now women weren’t considered strong enough to have their own movie. And Wonder Woman changes everything, why? Because seeing the Amazonians in Themyscira made me feel like we women can do anything. I’m used to see men fighting with awesome skills, using badass weapons and not missing a beat against the villains and yes, “We can do it too if we try hard enough, nothing is impossible, blah, blah, blah” but when you see an actual woman doing it… something clicks. It’s not just about thinking you can do it, it’s about feeling it. You feel it’s possible that, with enough training, you can actually accomplish anything.
Also I think it’s awesome that guys and kids stop looking at us as sidekicks or as the love interest, and they start to look at us as someone that can actually save the day or even save de world!
I hope Wonder Woman is the beginning of a lot of female superheroes movies and not an exception.
