Wonder Woman, live action (very) short film

I detected Wacker Drive in Chicago.

The Dark Knight hangs out on the next block on LaSalle.

A short film, and one that would be even shorter if it wasn’t shot in gratuitous and unnecessary slo-mo.

Also, I’ll refrain from saying “she throws like a girl”, but seriously, if you’re going to have a character throw a spear, either find an actress who can throw a spear, or get a stunt double in there, because that just looks ridiculous.

Would I see a full-length Wonder Woman movie if this short film was a trailer for it? Hmm, maybe? But it would be a shame to have a Wonder Woman movie that failed the Bechdel test. Let’s not make it all “she’s a woman fighting in a man’s world!!!” I’d be content with action movies that continue to have a male lead, if there were also female accomplices and villains that brought something to the plot and were not all about sex appeal.

I don’t like it. I had to stop when they slow-mo’d the one Amazonian tossing of a spear 6 whole inches to Wonder Woman. I prefer when they slo-mo the interesting complex bits of action. Also, I don’t buy that any of those woman know how to throw a punch.

Leave the Kraken alone!

I’d rather see this as a feature length movie than Affleck in yet another Batman reboot.

According to a couple of coworkers who watched the pilot, trading actresses might have helped a lot, too.

They clearly selected the actress based on her looks and figure rather than on her athletic prowess. In that respect it’s typical and typically discouraging.

What about Affleck as Wonder Woman?

Wow! Great interpretation! I love how battle-worn it looks.

Yeah, it’s not all about cleavage and uselessness, for a change.

This year I’m making a Venetian Carnival version of Wonder Woman; The only skin showing will be some neck and the tips of my fingers. Perfect for Canadian fall weather.

Yeah, point. But I still appreciate the attention to detail (lots of cosplayers make very prisitne armours that look completely unused), even though the actual source material is totally illogical.

I would love to see that.
I would not pay, but I would love to see it.

I agree, it’s the best interpretation of WW I’ve seen.

I was thinking of Gina Carano the whole time, check her out in haywire, its not the best movie ever but she does a great job carrying it.
I have no idea what language this clip is dubbed in, trust me, it doesn’t matter.
