Was thinking about the Wonder Woman movie again. It was a collection of scenes and tropes by someone who didn’t really seem to know how to make a movie hang together — just a weak effort for a character that deserved better.

Thank Athena for Gal Gadot, though, because she saved the film. It’s no easy feat blending wisdom and naïveté, strength and vulnerability, ruthlessness with compassion, but she did it amazingly well and sold the character all the way, compensating for the bad writing and semi-incompetent directing nearly singlehandedly (a great Robin Wright also helped).

Have a video that explains well what Wonder Woman is supposed to be about.
