The reviews for the new “Wonder Woman” film been favorable, my question is, why? At best I found it average. As far as a super hero film, it introduced nothing new to the genre, a clunking undertaking. Director Patty Jenkins directed with paint by numbers approach that lacked focus. Chris Pine was perfectly cast as the dashing Steve Trevor but Gal Gadot as the title character filled the screened with brooding facial expressions proved capable but at times a bit forced in this writers opinion. Supporting characters were wasted, standard plot devices moved around from setting to setting.
Good production values CGI effects were lacking in originality.
