How lucky that this DC Comics heroine makes her big-screen feature debut in the person of Gal Gadot. A former combat instructor in the Israeli army, she is every inch a Wonder Woman. Her worst enemy is the bad blood remaining from last year's two critically reviled DC films, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. In this origin story, set during World War I, Gadot is pretty much the whole show (Chris Pine stands by adoringly in the ingenue role). The actress states her mission is "to show the stronger side of women". No problem.
