Official Summary:Wonder Woman begins on the mystical island of Themyscira, where a proud and fierce warrior race of Amazons resides. They have raised Princess Diana, a daughter of stunning beauty, extraordinary strength and incredible fighting prowess. Diana possesses a host of super human powers granted to her by the gods and goddesses of Olympus and her strength and stamina are unparalleled. When Air Force fighter pilot Steve Trevor crash lands on the island, the rebellious and headstrong Diana defies Amazonian law by accompanying Trevor back to civilization. Meanwhile, Ares (the God of War) has escaped his imprisonment at the hands of the Amazons and has decided to exact his revenge by starting a world war that will destroy them all. It is up to Princess Diana to save her people and the world by using her gifts to become the ultimate Wonder Woman.

Review:The quality of the Blu-Ray disc is outstanding. Its the first full-length animated film that I've viewed in this format..and I must say that I'm VERY pleased. I watched it on my 42" LCD LG tv for those into tech that want to know and it was breathtaking.

The action in this film is what hits you first. It runs right into a major battle between Diana's mother and Ares, the god of war (voiced by the great Alfred Molina!). Its hard-hitting and intense. Let me warn you up-front..this film is NOT for children. Adult fans only.
In the first ten minutes there is a handful of death, decapitation and talk of sex. The sexual themes flow throughout the entire movie, which I think is just fantastic. That is one of the real-world themes that comic book animation tends to lack, even though the books themselves seem to be seeped in it.

There is also a high entertainment value involved in this film. There is a moment when Diana reaches the USA and a drunk bum mumbles at her..its very ‘Back to the Future’. There is also a firm amount, as you might expect, of pro-female themes in the film. Writer Michael Jelenic did a fine job of writing from and for the female perspective. The extras on this disc don't disappoint either! I've listed them below..each one is worth the watch.

I went into this film vaguely familiar with Wonder Woman as a character. I saw the TV show as a kid...I experienced her in Super Friends and later in life in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. I've never before, however, seen a good and true representation of this fine character.
The Dc Universe Wonder Woman animated film has provided the world with this long overdue representation. What Batman Begins and The Dark Knight have done to show a more legitimate version of Batman to the mainstream, this movie can likewise show why Wonder Woman deserves her cult following. You can now add this fan to the list!

I cannot recommend this movie enough. Five out of five Bats!
