I though the animated film had more heart and depth than the move action film. I though the acting was better. The plot was better. The execution and purpose of the character was better in the animated film. Chris Pine and paradise island was the best part of this movie...Etta Candy was cute but Diana giving her the sword was so off putting. The naivety of Diana as annoying considering her high intelligence. She understands sarcasm and sexuality and anatomy but not how corruption of people can be a reality.
Then that along with the pacing of the film. It was just so dragging. There was no real threat because you saw in the beginning that she lived and everyone from that era had to of died. It was just a boring story to me.
It was by far my favorite superhero movie so far. I absolutely loved it.
Wonder Woman came from paradise island, where she hadn't encountered any of those bad traits of men, the same way she'd never seen a baby and got excited to see one for the first time. If her whole thing is hope and love, why wouldn't she hope for the best in people? And what was off putting about giving Etta the sword, trusting that she wouldn't do anything bad with such an important thing?
And of course we knew there was no threat, it's Wonder Woman! The threat came in the shape of those around her and what would happen to them.
But like you guys said, different strokes for different folks. I'm just sorry to hear you didn't like it especially since you wanted to like it :/

She did encounter bad habits. The other Amazons showed us that. They've seen death and the ways of men through themselves. Much like when Diana was trained without the knowledge of her mother. She was in a strange land with a weapon that kills GODS. Why would she just give that away. That's silly. Being incompetent doesn't compare to being shocked from seeing a baby for for the first time. That's just bad writing.
Hoping for the best and keeping your guard up, something she was told over and over doesn't compare when you think Ares is corrupting everyone around you to fight in a war. Again, bad writing.
Also, the point of the story was that men and women are people. That's what Diana was suppose to of have learned. That's why the person (that made no sense as you why she should have to kill Dr. Poison. She didn't kill Trevor, Trevor did that himself) she had to kill was a woman.
You honestly thought Diana was crazy for most of it. Wondering if Ares was even real. There should of been a threat in the movie. That's why the movie was boring in my eyes. It wasn't entertaining watching she travel to England with no real climax..I just didn't care for it.
It had good scenes..ever scene on paradise island was amazing. I could watch an entire movie of her there. Even tho her leaving didn't really make any sense. She wanted to leave, yeah but her mother didn't want get to leave. Then when Diana did what a child does and snuck off and her mom still let her go. Again, bad writing. I couldn't get into this movie. It was boring and badly written.
If you got a kick out of it, that's great. If it inspired you, that's great. It did none of those things for me.
So was Wonder Woman made out of clay or not? That's the one thing I wasn't sure on by the end. The last couple of Wonder Woman runs have made me be skeptical when seeing her origin since that was a big part of both last big runs (I'm choosing to ignore the Finch stuff).
People say, "agree to disagree" because it's polite.
I know why it's said, I just don't like it. If you're in the middle of conversation why say it. The point of a conversation isn't to pick a side. It's to hear each other out. So to say, "let's agree to disagree" is already stated when you have the conversation. To say it, implies that you are right and others are wrong. Which opinions, especially about how you interpret art, can't be.
