Movie Review by Fr. Tom Condon, O.P.
If you’re like me, Wonder Woman immediately brings to mind the campy 1970’s TV show starring Lynda Carter. The movie is very different in tone from the TV show. Surprisingly, much of the movie is an espionage/adventure/romance movie with heroes Diana (Wonder Woman), played by Israeli actress Gal Gadot, and dashing American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Diana and Steve, with the help of a small group of other spies, go behind German lines during World War I in order to end the war. This part of the movie is absorbing, enhanced by great sets and photography.
