Wonder Woman (by Petty Jenkins)
Wonder Woman is a subtle humanist movie. It tells a story about Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) fight against Germany Army during the first World War to save mankind.
Like many other superhero movies, Wonder Woman also fulled with twist, explosion, struggle, and fight scenes. But the charming point of the movie is its commitment to idealism and humanity. Wonder Woman arrives just right in time not only to save the world from Ares forever and ever, it probably can saves millions dollars from DC.
