Wonder Woman, one of the most anticipated films of the DC; most people thought of it as what would make it or break it for the DCEU; has received positive reviews before it’s wide release across the world.
The release of Wonder Woman marks more than just another entry in this year’s round of summer blockbuster releases.

According to Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a 96% of approval, with 53 reviews considering it “fresh” and only two “rotten”.
The critics consensus is that the movie is thrilling, earnest, and buoyed by Gal Gadot’s charismatic performance, succeeding in spectacular fashion.
Forbes even calls it DC Comics’ Best Film Since ‘The Dark Knight’.
