Wonder Woman Gets An Honest Trailer… That's Actually Kind Of Nice

Wonder Woman is out now on Blu-ray and DVD, which means it's time for Screen Junkies to do an Honest Trailer. The Gal Gadot-led film was well received, but not without its flaws — and the video below does a good job in pointing out both the strengths and the weaknesses of the film. A sign that they, like most, really liked it.

They point out how the studio still felt the need to cast one of the bankable Chrises, but they gave Chris Pine the supportive love interest role that usually goes to women. And even though it's a Patty Jenkins  film, you can still see some of Zack Snyder's influence — which makes sense, since he was the architect of this universe.

They nitpick things, of course, like how she can no so many languages but not know what marriage means. The video points out that where the lead characters are well nuanced, the villains are pretty much stereotypical Nazis — which is interesting, since the Germans weren't Nazis in World War One.

And they go after the ending, like Ares tossing around lightning bolts and Diana quickly figuring out how to use her godlike powers. I loved the movie up until that point, but really wished they would've had a more physical confrontation. Having Diana beat Ares in one-on-one combat would've been far more satisfying than them flinging objects and energy at each other.

Overall, it's one of the more complimentary Honest Trailers, but then again, it was also a very good movie.
