Honorbuddy specifically says, "bad traits of men" which is different, for one, and important, which I'll get to in a minute. There is zero evidence of the Amazons having the similar "bad traits". There's a reason Themyscira is called Paradise Island. There is peace and civility and balance. There's no crime or violence or atrocity. It's a Utopia. These Woman have figured it out. Sure, there is war training but they are a noble army. Antiope disobeys her sister's wishes because she knows the severity of the Ares situation. She knows why Diana is there; she knows what Diana is capable of and she knows that Hippolyta is just being over protective, naive and fearful for her daughter. If "deliberate secrecy for the good of the world" is the biggest crime on the island, than they are still ahead of the curve.
She didn't give it to anyone- she gave it to Etta. A Woman. She trusts women inherently and specifically. It's not "incompetent" - it's a follow through of character development. Again, she is aware of the "bad traits of men" and Etta, a sister, is seen as an honorable equal.
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.
Except, no you didn't think she was crazy, because it's WONDER WOMAN and OF COURSE Ares is real. Hippolyta was there for him. She knows he's real. Antiope knows he is real, which is why she pushes Diana. Diana "knows" he is real because it's why she was created. Steve doesn't really believe it but he doesn't really. Diana is a means to an end for him. I love that post Ludendorff guard tower scene between Steve and Diana. It's so real: he's a man on a mission, begging Diana to help save the world. He's like, "jeez, Diana, I don't know about Ares. I'm sorry you're upset but I need to go do this thing to save some people and I need your help." It's delicately handled and shows Diana the good in men even though she still waffles a bit. Of course, the movie isn't over yet.
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.
And there's no "real climax" watching her travel to England because that's the foreplay, man. Diana and Steve verbally feeling each other out. We learn a lot about both of their characters in that scene. It's a smart use of that story time.
Diana disobeying her Mother's wishes to go to "Man's World" is the basis for most of the Woman Woman origin stories. It's not bad writing - it's cannon.
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.
