Trim about 6 minutes out of that and the film would be 
perfect.

*************************

I wholeheartedly disagree.  A LOT of what occurs in London shows off Diana's combination of naοvetι, compassion, and love.  As well as some kicking of ass.  ;)  It's definitely is a slow build to the "no man's land" scene, but it's meant to be.  The audience was supposed to feel the same frustration as she was feeling.  

To me, that's great directing and pacing.

Six minutes here or there doesn't increase or decrease my enjoyment of a film.  In this specific instance, unlike many a modern, bloated, tentpole film, I thought the runtime was perfect.  Never felt long or dragged out at all.

Ray,

Have to correct you here.  In Greek Mythology, Ares has always been Zeus's son with his wife Hera.  Zeus had two brothers, Poseidon and Hades, the three of them being sons of the Titans Cronus and Rhea.

Yours,
Marc

Brian Peck:
AGREE: "One BIG complaint was I didn't see H.G. Peter's list of names who influenced  the film. Listed only one of her creators, why do they over look artists?"

They did include Ross Andru and George Perez (double duty, of course), 
but I would agree. I'm not entirely sure about that list of credits, m'self.

DISAGREE: 
"Liked that they included the origin Marston and HG Peter gave her..."

I'm not sure I saw much of that at all in the movie. But it's likely a difference in what we were looking for. YMMV.

Same here. I wonder how many people watching the movie actually get
the significance of that moment though.

Sigh....

Neil, when I got to the part of the article where is says, "It’s a cheesy line, sure. But this is a cheesy movie."  I stopped.

NOT a cheesy movie in the least.

So this is NOT Artemis? Because outside of hair color, this looks just like Artemis:

I'll have to check out the movie soon, though I'm not a DC guy. Robin Wright is good casting. I've never seen her in a physical role before. She looks RIPPED!

A really good movie. In my opinion on par with Richard Donner's Superman.

Saw it today. Very disappointed.There were moments that had me weeping like a girlie-man. There were much longer moments when I was, frankly, bored. Even to the point of checking my watch.

And the last act, when it dissolves into Zach Snyder-esque disaster porn, had the stink of SUPERMAN II all over it.

Gal Gadot was good, Chris Pine was Chris Pine.

Interesting, JB... I haven't seen the film yet, but would you say most of those moments happened in the beginning?

A nod to her being made from clay, yes it was a story she was told by her
mother which later turned out to be false.

I'm trying to decide if my favorite fight scene is the one in the side alley or the
one in the small town.

I guess at this very moment... It's the latter.

Might be false. Diana being Zeus' daughter does not preclude her from being
made from clay molded by Hippolyta.

Diana was the only child on an island of immortal women, so she had never
seen a real, live baby before.
