She was without a doubt my favorite part of the new Superman Vs Batman movie. And that’s saying something when you’ve got your choice between two totally ripped men to ogle. I even loved the retro sounding theme they played for her. It immediately took me back to Saturday morning Justice League cartoons. As soon as the music started playing and she crossed her wrists…that’s right, you know exactly what I’m talking about, I was a kid again.
I don’t keep track of all the chatter around these movies but I had heard some rumblings about Gal Gadot’s very un-Amazonian figure but I have to say, so? The woman was a lean, mean fighting machine and I lapped it up. She is beautiful, strong, intelligent and brave and I’m not going to hold it against her that all that work shows. I thought she was, well, wonderful. I even got to see her use the magic lasso.
I was prepared to let my mind wander during this rather long film, you know, get some writing done in my head while I waited for the good parts.
It never happened.
It’s been months since I’ve sat through a movie in a theater and my mind hasn’t wandered once. Last night I was glued to the screen, immersed in the story. I loved every minute of it.
For those of you hesitating because of some critical review, well, if you haven’t learned by now (shrugs). I’m going to go see it again, I want to see Affleck’s workout one more time and then get chills all over again as Wonder Woman charges in and the Bat and the Super hero look on in awe.
