'Wonder Woman' opens with a long introduction explaining the title character's origins as the sole child on some Amazonian idyllic island protected by an invisible shield which proves less than impregnable when breached by an American airman spy dressed as a German. Gal Gadot and Chris Pine prove attractive and eminently watchable as the adult Wonder Woman and the airman.
The two embark on some spy activity which I didn't completely follow supported by a motley international trio of mercenaries.
'Wonder Woman' is quite interesting visually and the CGI effects work well. It is refreshing to have a female heroine for a change even if (inevitably?) a man is depicted as sparking her action. Other than that there is not a lot to a film that undoubtedly will be followed with multiple sequels.
