Diana Prince, the Wonder Woman and princess of Themyscira, is everything most women crave to be: Smart, strong, and beautiful. But Diana feels like a failure after being banished by her people for leaving to help save the world of man. Reinventing herself as a hero, Diana tries to make her sacrifice worth it but despite all the lives she’s saved, she has plenty of enemies. When two of her greatest enemies, Dr. Poison and Dr. Cyber encounter Vanessa Katapelis, daughter of one of one of Diana’s dearest friends who always envied the Amazon; after her mother dies and Diana fails to save her, Vanessa falls into the promises of Cyber and Poison for a chance at revenge…enter the Silver Swan. Can Diana save her people and redeem her friend before its too late?
I actually like this movie better than Wonder Woman in a few ways; surely this movie could’ve been a way better sequel than Wonder Woman: 1984 . We actually a get a nice take on the origin story and a look at some of Diana’s regrets and her flaws; Rosario Dawson sells it as Diana as well as a really good voice cast. There are plenty of villain cameos and a surprise last act but honestly Silver Swan makes for a relatable villain that challenges Wonder Woman. The movie does good between being serious and having light heartened moments. In the end, I really enjoy this film as one of the DCAUs better if not in the category of their best films to date and I hope WW 3 takes pointers from this movie. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
