DVD of the Day #332 - Wonder Woman: The Animated Movie

I was a bit hesitant to ever see this as the militant Wonder Woman fans I know wish everyone involved in this production a slow and painful death. However, a friend of mine suggested I see it after watching Green Lantern: First Flight, so I decided to Netflix it. I’m glad I did, as the film isn’t worth being in my permanent collection, but holy shit if it wasn’t funny.

The movie follows the plot of the Silver Age Wonder Woman where Steve Trevor crash lands by accident on Paradise Island which is populated only by women. Not just any women either, but Amazons, power warrior-queens devoted to the Greek Gods. Here he meets Diana who is intrigued by the thought of other lands, even if they are populated by men, so she decides to compete in the Amazon games under a mask to earn the right to accompany Steve back to Man’s World. There’s also the plot about Ares escaping his prison in Paradise Island and trying to destroy the world with the help of undead amazons.

Truthfully the overall story isn’t that great. It’s a pretty generic Wonder Woman story that is highlighted by the equivalent of Porky’s references. A great example is when Steve Trevor is ensared in the lasso of truth by Hippolyta (Wonder Woman’s mom) and asked to say what he is thinking he says, “Your daughter has a great rack.” It’s things like that that make the movie enjoyable, but it’s also obvious why the Womynists hate this movie so much. The voice acting isn’t very good either. Everyone is pretty wooden and Artemis, is obviously voiced by a black woman even though she’s a pale skined redhead. That kind of ruins things a bit.

As a rental, this was fun but there’s no way I’d buy this. There’s a lot of death, which is a bit offputting and the end of the movie is pretty insipid, but for a one-shot it was an amusing waste of an hour.

Is It Worth Keeping? No, but it was worth watching
Rating: 5.5/10
