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

“WONDER WOMAN ultimately leaves us much like the way it leaves Gadot’s Diana, dissatisfied in the present day, looking at old pictures and thinking wistfully about how great things almost were.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“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
