Wonder Woman

I never watched the original TV show “Wonder Woman.” Honestly I’m not that interested. The clips I’ve seen appear corny and hokey. I was only slightly hesitant wanting to review this film, because I didn’t want to be disappointed afterward like other DC films. I never followed the Wonder Woman character, but she’s always intrigued me. From what I’ve learned about her doing research about her character before I saw the film I was really pumped to see this film.
