Wonder Woman has at last got the Honest Trailer treatment – and it may be the first film to make it through unscathed.
(Well, mostly. This is an Honest Trailer after all.)
Courtesy of the evil masterminds down at Screen Junkies, the DC movie was put up to the most brutal of critiques and besides a few comments about men mostly putting up with Diana because she’s (in case you haven’t noticed) smoking hot, actually heaps on the praise.
Jesus. This movie really must be good.
“The DCEU pulls off it’s biggest success yet,” begins the trailer. “After Supergirl, Catwoman and Electra, studios doubted a female-led superhero movie could succeed.
“Now, Patty Jenkins bravely asks the question: ‘What if a female led superhero movie wasn’t absolute garbage from beginning to end, and had a powerful message for girls?”
The trailer goes on to acknowledge that Wonder Woman does have its faults, if only a few.
Mainly, these revolve around Diana asking one too many questions and coming off dumber than she is, and that reveal of David Thewlis as the God of War being a bit of a stretch of ye olde imagination.
The Honest Trailer also notes the movie’s villains are pretty camp and that the end of the film implies “Wonder Woman kept her head down for all of Hitler and Stalin, but did suit up Lex Luthor made a Ninja Turtle”.
But then it’s back to the praise, of which there is plenty.

“She’s the hero the DCEU doesn’t deserve, but sure as hell needs right now,” the trailer continues.
“Get ready for a film about balancing the good and bad in all of us, that contains good and bad within itself, in this flawed but important movie that’s no less important for having flaws.
“Is it an inspirational, well-made film that finally gives women a superhero to be proud of? Yes.”
The trailer also describes Themyscira as “Xena Warrior Island” – which isn’t exactly negative but is hilarious and pretty apt – and credits Wonder Woman for flipping the convention of a femme fatale in the form of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor.
No one’s saying it was perfect. But this film really was awesome, huh?
