The reviews have been flooding in, and Wonder Woman continues to defy all odds or expectations. In addition to becoming the highest-rated DC or Marvel film to-date, Gal Gadot's solo film has officially been Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes.
The review site collects the reviews from critics around the world, and gives each film a rating based on those reviews. A good review gets a fresh rating, a poor review gives you a rotten rating. The overall Rotten Tomatoes score is the percentage of positive vs negative reviews.
Being Certified Fresh is the highest honor a film can achieve on Rotten Tomatoes, and a movie has to be universally praised to gain the stamp. For a wide-release movie like Wonder Woman, the overall score has to be above 75% after being reviewed by at least 80 critics. Of those 80, five have to be top critics.
Wonder Woman gained its 80th review on Wednesday morning, the day before its evening release in the US. With a score of 96%, 77 of the 80 critics have given Wonder Woman a fresh review.
