I watched it yesterday. First and foremost, I'll have to say this. I'll warn you that I may be chauvenistic to both sexes here. I was doubtful if female director can successfully pull off a testosterone "male" oriented blockbuster. Point Break is awesome, but Hurt Locker and Punisher:WZ I found to be boring and uninteresting. However, when it as announced that woman will direct WW, I felt they got it as I believe that only a female director can give the character justice. Ofcourse, it if was a guy, it may totally be the same movie, so I digress.
But first before getting on the movie, let me say that I am not much of a fan of WW (neither I read many comics - Perez I love, Azzarello run and Hiketeia I intensely dislike, though I admire what the Finch couple did).
About the movie: I dropped a hint in another topic. I think it's very, fair, honest and sympatethic portrayal of the title character, the best it can be nad much in vein of Donner Superman IMO. Moreover, Gal is beautiful, sexy and lethal in equal measures (though I am bit nostalgic for Linda Carter:grin:) And this WW is bereft of the superhero antics I find in Nolan/Snyder verse, where are frustrated, confused character with phrases like:"should I do it; who am I; it hurts me being superhero, hurts me when being not...". No, this character is a hero and wants it to be. And I believe, just as the poster for Superman (1978) - "You'll believe a man can fly".
On the other hand, the plot is already chewed-up and cliched. I am not particularly convinced with Thewlis' performance (I think he is miscast here), the latter "reveal"... can't say I've seen it coming, but it didn't surprise me, either. Also, I find the main villain fight to be a bit cheap and unconvincing, with WW all of suddenly unleash all her fury, before seriously eating dirt.
As for action scenes; they didn't engage me much as they should. Don't know, probably because, I've grown spoiled, petulant and craving for more over the years, so that nothing much can surprise me. And flawed he may be, Snyder knows how to make a glory spectacle. Sorry, Patty. Still, special effects are throughly impressive.
