After Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel/Batman v Superman double misfire and the truly awful Suicide Squad, DC has finally hit gold – Wonder Woman is a genuine triumph. A slow first act is quickly brushed aside the moment Chris Pine’s war pilot Steve Trevor brings Gal Gadot’s iconic title character to London with a series of fun fish out of water scenes and uplifting action sequences. Pine is brilliant, equal parts funny and charming, while the perfectly cast Gadot is the inspiring, heroic centrepiece we’ve been waiting for. Director Patty Jenkins has shrugged off any pressure to craft a warm-hearted origin story that literally saves the DC movie universe from total irrelevance.
