BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 06/02/2017

Wonder Woman (2017)Gal GadotWONDER WOMAN

“What WONDER WOMAN understands far greater than its brethren is that it can be serious without giving way to self-seriousness, it can have stakes while still being funny and can present a message without being cloying or trite.” – Allyson Johnson, The Young Folks

“Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman through and through, and not only is this the first female superhero to get her own standalone movie; it may be the best one to ever grace the screen.” – Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“WONDER WOMAN is a mediocre picture with significant blemishes that cancel out many of the positives.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“While I tend to keep my reviews as apolitical as possible, and I pride myself on my cold gore-loving heart, I have to admit that WONDER WOMAN made me a little verklempt.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Film Thrills

“What makes this a must see for fans of superhero movies is the performance of Israeli actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. This is a star-marking turn….” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Ironically, the only reason you can’t also call this a starmaking turn for [Gal Gadot] is that the starmaking already happened when she stole [the otherwise awful BATMAN V SUPERMAN] last year.” – Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“The sincere, celebratory backbone of CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS is this idea that laughter is a magical thing, even if you’re chuckling at the lowest class of comedy.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“Overall, the film has a loose, semi-improv quality, and feels like a series of sketch comedy vignettes more or less strung into a story.” – Kilian Melly, Edge Boston

“It’s missing bite, but you’ll appreciate its tender humors all the same.” – Andy Crump, The Playlist
