The iconic female superhero’s first solo movie is a hit amongst critics and has earned an impressive 96% score on the Tomatometer:
It’s great news for DC, after disappointing many with their most recent works, Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman. And it’s also looking good for the box office, as reports suggest that following these strong reviews, it could make over $100m in its domestic opening, which is almost double the original estimates:
Here’s a selection of some of the major outlet’s review quotes and ratings:
TheWrap: It’s a film that not only improves upon many of the seemingly built-in shortcomings of superhero movies, but also mixes smarts, sentiment and adrenaline in the best Hollywood style.
Variety: Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman provides a welcome respite from DC’s house style of grim darkness with star Gal Gadot proving an inspired choice for this avatar of truth, justice and the Amazonian way.
Hollywood Reporter: This origin story, with its direct and relatively uncluttered trajectory, offers a welcome change of pace from a superhero realm that’s often overloaded with interconnections and cross-references.
Wonder Woman arrives in theaters on June 2nd.
