I know I'm a few years late to the party on this one, but I didn't see a thread for it.

I've never really considered myself a fan of the character or read all that much of her series (I'm just getting started with her new 52 book), but I must admit, her animated movie was very impressive. Funny, engaging, and more than enough action to keep me entertained. I won't lie, this film definitely motivated me to focus catching up on her title, too.

Who else has watched it and what are your thoughts? And to the Wonder Woman experts, did you have any major complaints about the film or was it (for the most part) accurate?

I don't know much about Wonder Woman, but I did like the movie. Although, I still don't understand how she actually got her airplane. The story's different every time.

I am no expert on Wonder Woman but I thought this was one of the best animated movies DC put out....without question my favorite. They could very much apply the more plausible, realistic approach this movie had and use it for a basis of a live action movie.

I kind of also scratched my head when the invisible jet randomly showed up with no reason provided. Could an expert explain this for us? It seems odd since they cut themselves off from the modern world, and that technology was clearly quite modern and drastically different from everything else on the island.

There is a thread for this somewhere but I dont feel like tracking it down. The animated movie was great, although if I remember correctly it didnt do nearly as well as the other DC animated movies.

The island was invisible as well, in the comics the jet was made of something that could morph into any vehicle....In the film  the jets design and hull seemed to mirror Trevors fighter plane that crashed....that could be the implied origin

I thought it was extremely well done. The animation was superb as was the voice talent and plot.

Eh, I think getting hung up on whether or not the origin is a direct translation from the source material is a mistake. The movie is in its own universe so what things I noticed that were not exactly like the comics were dismissed in favor for how the movie made me feel. The film was really enjoyable as both a devout Wonder Woman fan and as a movie buff. Honestly, I cannot think of a single thing I personally did not enjoy about it.

#17 Posted by Quintus_Knightfall (84491 posts) - - Show Bio

The one problem I always have with WW is her segregation. Her villains are primarily exclusive to her. Her major story arcs seldom if ever cross over into other titles. Once in awhile but not often. Her supporting cast is fugasy

This, I keep saying they should take the script from the animated movie, change a few things, and boom, it'll be a great live action film.

Agreed! I love how many laughs they managed to pack in, but unfortunately some of the jokes were a little too dry for my taste. (drinking w/ Trevor and telling the Swan story, arrow to the leg)

LMAO They used the Perez origin as the foundation but they chose things from other versions of WW lore and spun it into their own, new thing. So essentially, yeah she is a sand baby.

It was really good. Probably one of the best DC has done and I'm surprised they haven't done it before.

I really hope they do Batgirl Year One in the future.

I consider myself a Wonder Woman expert I have read all her comics since 1986. I really enjoyed the film no major complaints.

The Theme was correct however they did change the Amazon history a bit prior to Wonder Woman being born. The Comic book history of the Amazons prior to Wonder Woman would actually make a pretty good movie by it self.

After Wonder Woman's birth it gets pretty accurate. However ARES was never a prisoner on the island. Hippolyta did not have a son called Thrax.

The Gods never imprisoned ARES. And she did not have an invisible plane. Artemis character was supposed to be philipus. but since people are more familiar with Artemis they changed it.

The Amazons where not betrayed by one of there sisters.

And STEVE TREVER was way older and not a love interest to Wonder Woman.

Basically They took the best of pre-crisis Wonder Woman story and the best of Post Crisis Wonder Woman almost at a 50/50 ratio and came up with something pretty good kind of like how the DCnU Wonder Woman is.

Its funny because this Film was made in 2009 but it is actually pretty much fits VERY well with the DCnU 52 Wonder Woman story more than the post crisis origin. In the DCnU 52 Wonder Woman, it has not yet been reveled how Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor met. When they do finally revel it... it may closely resemble this movie. Not sure if they planned that but it makes the movie more relevant.

It was good but I will be satisfied when DC gives her a well done live action film.We already know Warner Bros\DC makes good animated films and series.That's nothing for them.Let's what they can do with the big screen because as of now Marvel is curbstomping them in that respect.

It was superb, but if I remember it did so badly that they decided not to create a second movie.

#40 Posted by OldDude (26 posts) - - Show Bio

I really liked this film totally great thing for me since I am a huge WW fan (I even like the 70's Diana Prince series), it's just so much better than the crappy tv pilot, which made me real sad to watch. The animation is great and it has good dialogue to match, seems like the writers didn't take themselves real seriously, something that suits the whole feat really well and makes it more fun to watch. I also liked Artemis, such a cool character and here she fits the story nicely as an antagonist. The only thing that could have been better was the voice-over but this is a problem I have with most US animation so it didn't bother me that much.

DC does such a great job with their animated movies, wish they could do that with their live feats (maybe Arrow will manage that, but I digress)...

I celebrated finishing a big report I'd been working on for weeks by sitting in bed watching this film on my laptop and eating chocolate.

I thought the film was great! I did think it suffered a bit from the enforced 70 min running time though; I wanted more! I would LOVE them to make another one but it seems that won't happen. It's sad.

I honestly do not think they can do WW justice live action. People have a hard time giving credit to a live action film where the protagonist is a female. Look at Haywire. I thought the film was awesome but it did very poorly considering it also starred Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor and Channing Tatum as Gina Carano's supporting cast. It also had Michael Douglas and Antonio Banderas as minor characters. It was a dream team cast and because the protagonist was a woman...

In Haywire there was only one Woman in the whole movie. Gina Carano and she could not act at all.

Aliens, Tomb Raider, Salt, Underworld among others is proof Wonder Woman Live action would work

The movie just proves that Gina Carano should stay away from Wonder Woman :P
