Wonder Woman has launched to a stellar 97 percent critic score on Rotten Tomatoes. When put up against its fellow DC coutnerparts, the Gal Gadot-led picture is far and away the highest rated film in the series. Down below I’ve compiled a sample of reviews from RT.
Mark Daniell, Toronto Sun:
“With its nods to Richard Donner’s Superman and Chris Evans’ first outing as Captain America, Wonder Woman also exceeds expectations as an origin story with its First World War setting.”
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone:
“Gal Gadot is unstoppable and spectacular to see in motion. Watch her fly.”
Alonso Duralde, The Wrap:
“It’s a film that not only improves upon many of the seemingly built-in shortcomings of superhero movies, but also mixes smarts, sentiment and adrenaline in the best Hollywood style.”
Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press:
“Like the heroine at its center, Wonder Woman the movie rises with powerful grace above the noise. It’s not perfect, but it’s often good, sometimes great and exceptionally re-watchable.”
Kelly Lawler, USA Today:
“The film’s action is explosive and engaging, and a sequence where Diana ventures into no man’s land in the middle of a trench battle is stunning to behold.”

“Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world this summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.”
Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as the title character, Chris Pine, Robin Wright as Antiope, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Connie Nielsen, Ewen Bremner, and Lucy Davis.
The film hits theaters this Friday, June 2, 2017.
