First, I must confess that I am little acquainted with the Wonder Woman comic books. I loved the Wonder Woman series with Lynda Carter and I absolutely loved and am obsessed with the movie starring Gal Gadot. I watched this movie at once because I was curious about the background of the comic book author and because it stars two actors I really admire, Luke Evans and Rebecca Hall. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie. The pacing was right, I felt, for the story. I loved how the story was about him but the main focus was always, rightly so, on the two amazing and powerful women who shaped Wonder Woman as much as they influence and shaped the man who created the character from what he saw as the best of both women. The nudity/love scenes in this movie were not graphic and were done, again, my opinion, tastefully and with reverence to the story. I highly recommend this movie to everyone. I loved Wonder Woman before, I now understand why.

Considering the cost of seeing a movie today - this one would probably be better off viewed if checked out (for free) from the library.
Based - loosely - and I mean loosely - on the life and times of psychologist William Moulton Marston - this film attempts to provide some background to the comic book creation of Wonder Woman.
Unfortunately, there is a good deal of Marston's life that is left out. Marston was a Harvard-educated "law man" who chose psychology as his career of interest. His writings are almost obsessively focused on lie-detection.
Apparently, Marston had a criminal record - and the Detroit police department didn't care much for him. For a lawyer, he didn't seem to have much respect for the law, morals or ethics.
Fantastic film. But not as sexual as the advertisements promised. In fact, apart from the curse words, this film should be rated PG-13 at best. I found it surprisingly chaste.
The first thing you should know is that this film is NOT based on the book, The Secret History of Wonder Woman. It is based on original research by the director/writer of the movie, who did a great job interpreting the story her own way. It's a story about what happens when you defy convention! And the good that can come of it.
Is it factual? Mostly, yes. Kinkiness and BDSM is in the book as well, not to mention the early comics of Wonder Woman. Anyone denying the lesbian/BDSM content of the real story and the BDSM content of the comic ... is in denial. The granddaughter of Marston has started a campaign to destroy the film, unleashing neoconservatives and Trumppets to spread the word about how it's "fake." But what's fake? It's a fictional retelling, not a documentary, based on a true story. Fake is the show, Fargo, which claims to be based on actual events, but is COMPLETELY made up. But no one seems to make a big deal about that. Why? No BDSM or lesbian content in it -- so it's perfectly fine? I think certain people need to acknowledge their own prejudice.
Anway, I thought the actors were solid. The director did a great job telling an unconventional story. This is a movie for adults, obviously. I could see this film as a theater piece -- a Broadway play -- actually -- particularly those dress-up scenes with the Frenchman, Charles Guyette, the "G-String King." Very theatrical indeed.
*** SPECIAL NOTE: this movie is shockingly CGI free! Will comic fans be able to handle that? Probably not! ***
