Wonder Woman is heading into theaters with a mighty fine buzz surrounding it. We here at Comicbook.com gave DC's supeheroine blockbuster a favorable 4 out of 5 star review - which you can watch above! We weren't alone in that sentiment, either: the first round of critical reviews are out, and they are overwhelmingly glowing.
These days, a lot of movie fans judge a film's critical standing by getting the movie's aggregate score from sites like Rotten Tomatoes, and according to the current rankings (at the time of writing this), Wonder Woman has a highler RT score than any other DC Comics or Marvel movie.
By current stats, Wonder Woman is sitting pretty at 96% on Rotten Tomatoes; that's higher than all-time greats like Iron (94%) or Avengers (92%) - or even recent highly-acclaimed superhero films like Deadpool (84%), Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 (81%) or Logan (92%). Needless to say, this is, by far, the best score for a DC Extended Universe film, with Man of Steel sitting at 55%, while Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad both couldn't rise above 30%.
In fact, many viewers are comparing Wonder Woman to a milestone film like Richard Donner's Superman (93%) - a sentiment these early review scores would seem to echo. It's going to be a hard pillow to swallow for those who have grown accostumed to Marvel movies being the clear frontrunner, while the DCEU struggles; however, we said it early on that 2017 could be the turnaround year for DC Films, and it seems that reversal of fortune is now happening before our eyes.
SYNOPSIS: 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 will be in theaters on June 2. It is 2 hours and 21 minutes long, and Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, and some suggestive content.
