This review contains minor spoilers!
Diana Prince is the hero we all need. This direct-to-video animated movie was beautiful. From the graphics, to the action-packed fight scenes(which Wonder Woman ALWAYS deliver), to the voice acting, and a magnificent script, this movie covers all the bases. If anyone’s familiar with the comics, this movie passes the torch from The New 52 to Rebirth. This movie is a prequel to the Justice League: War movie, and also a sequel to the movies that came after. This was truly a great story.
As with most of Wonder Woman’s (Rosario Dawson) stories, we have Steve Trevor (Jeffrey Donovan) crashing on Themyscira. Wonder Woman, or Diana, rescues Steve, and takes him to a chamber to be healed. In doing this, Diana breaks the oath of no man being allowed on the island, and Steve is taken prisoner. Well, this can’t stand with Diana, who breaks Steve out of prison. If there’s evil in the world, Diana is going to help fight it. Another reason why she’s awesome. She steals her armor and weapons, including the lasso of truth, which leads to an altercation with her mother, Queen Hippolyta(Cree Summer). After their little battle(yes, they battled!!), Diana is disowned and soon travels to Man’s World with Steve Trevor to fight evil. There ya’ have it, thats the premise. I know this sounds just like every Wonder Woman movie, but I promise you, this is an amazing, and refreshing story! Diana eventually goes up against most of her villains, some including Doctor Poison (Courtenay Taylor), Giganta (Kimberly Brooks) and Silver Swan (Marie Avgeropoulos) – who she battles the entire movie.
That’s not even the half of it. Diana battles most of these villains while they’re juiced up on some serum that makes them even stronger!! I mean, look at Cheetah:
Yes, Cheetah (Kimberly Brooks as well) was also in this movie! She already gives Wonder Woman a run for her money, but to be juiced up on serum that increases her strength, she was moving as fast as The Flash. No kidding. It’s Wonder Woman, though, and with thousands of years of training, she’s going to battle this one out!! This leads to her final battle, with the one and only Medusa.
Who was also juiced up on this serum!! Also, we all know if you look at Medusa (Cree Summers as well), you turn into stone. Wonder Woman did the unthinkable, and blinded herself, and went to war. This was one hell of a battle!!
I’m not going to spoil the whole movie for you guys! That wouldn’t be fair, or fun. Everyone should seriously give this movie a watch. It’s a reminder of why Wonder Woman is apart of the trinity that also includes Batman and Superman. She’s a beast and certainly a force to be reckoned with!!
Wonder Woman: Bloodlines is available on digital platforms, and will be out on Blu-ray, October 22, 2019! Make sure to check out the movie, everyone! Full of great action!
