Review: Wonder Woman – Bloodlines


Title: Wonder Women: Bloodlines
MPAA Rating: PG-13
Director: Justin Copeland, Sam Liu
Starring: Rosario Dawson, Jeffrey Donovan, Marie Avgeropoulos
Runtime: 1 hr 23 mins

What It Is: When Steve Trevor (Donovan) crashes his plane he lands on Themiscyra. The land of the Amazon features a race of beautiful warrior woman. When the princess of the island Diana (Dawson) grows curious about the world of man. She helps Trevor escape. Now she lives with (temporarily) Steve’s friend Julia Kapatelis (Nia Vardalos). When Julia is killed during a bust involving the Doctors (Cyber and Poison) her now-adult daughter Vanessa (Avgeropoulos) wants revenge on Diana for her role in bringing Julia to the bust.

What We Think: A lot of the time DC’s animated ventures are tight affairs that tell fun stories within the confines of what’s already established from the previous films. This feels like it’s working outside of all of that. Rosario Dawson makes for a great Wonder Woman. Her voice is smoky and assertive enough to command the respect Diana deserves. Where the story and voice acting was particularly weak was in the villain department. Avgeropoulos was great and Cree Summer isn’t given anything to work with as the main villain.

Our Grade: C-, A meh animation from DC and Warner is still far better then the animated schlock Marvel has put out. Having said that let’s get right down to it. I can’t give this any sort of glowing recommendation. If you’re super into Wonder Woman and her cast of characters go on ahead and see this outside of that missing this entry, it seems, won’t harm a thing. There are too many of these movies that come out. I think this is like the third or fourth one this year. Let’s calm it down and focus on instead trying to keep the quality high. They seem on to something with their Teen Titans entries.
