Great

We really need to stop Americans reviewing our films, you are the most prudish and sheltered emotionally types of the world. This movie should easily be pg, it has some deaths which is nowhere near as heart wrenching as gruesome deaths of the 70s, 80s and 90s and just the odd muttering of hell, which isn't swearing in the rest of the world, by the way. My kid was 5 and loved it. He's also a sweet kid with no mental issues. It also balance sout the toxic masculinity they teach in most kids action movies and shows that some things can be talked over, there is also a bloody woman as the main character!

Absolutely Horrendous

Out of all the high budget films this one had by far one of the worst CGIs I have ever seen, it looks as if its straight out of a short film in YouTube. On top of this the story was a mess. We are introduced to Wonder Woman, who is almost perfect from the beginning until all the way to the end. She completely disregards her team leaders and leads them to danger, and she screws up Steve's plans by disobeying his commands when he was trying to get answers from the enemy. Plus she encounters and kills a group of German soldiers who were more than likely innocent teenagers who were forced to go to war. Like all feminist films it denies the fact that women can be responsible for horrific acts unless there’s a man to blame. And for some reason they decided to do the rely on the generic "magical girl anime" level of storytelling, where the heroine punches the devil in the face and the world is purified. The film was a complete waste of time and money, and was one of Hollywood's pathetic attempts to make a strong female lead directed by a female director.
