In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when a pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers and her true destiny.
Steve Trevor sarcastically refers to Diana's island home of Themyscira as "Paradise Island." However, this is a nod to the original name for Wonder Woman's homeland (the island of Amazons) in the comics. In the 1980s, the name of the Amazon Island was changed to Themyscira when comic book writers (George Perez specifically) updated and revamped the character. It has been referred to as Themyscira in all Wonder Woman media since then. Steve Trevor's sarcastic remark was actually written in to nod to fans who would remember the old name (which was used in the television show, as well as comics pre-dating the 80s). See more »
The village of Veld is allegedly a French village (the name of the town Hazebrouck is on the map and information on buildings are all in French). However on the awning of the bar, there is the word "bier" which is in Flemish or German. In French, it should be "bière". However, this might be correct, as Hazebrouck is in French-Flanders, where a lot of people used a dialect of Flemish at that time. See more »
I used to want to save the world. This beautiful place. But I knew so little then. It is a land of beauty and wonder, worth cherishing in every way. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness simmering within. And mankind? Mankind is another story altogether.

Over-hyped, far too long and for the majority of its run time plain boring.
All those ratings have got to be fake. I can and will not believe that most people ACTUALLY thought this movie was good.
It took literally until one hour and 14 minutes, half way through the whole film, to FINALLY get some action sequences that are longer than 5 seconds! Everything beforehand is boring preparation garbage and stupid dialogues by uninteresting, cliché characters nobody cares about mixed with some dad-jokes even immature teenagers would heartily yawn at.
The end was also really, really cheesy, completely "ex machina" and bad... seriously, who wrote this crap?
Compared to other action hero flicks this falls super flat on all fronts: Uninspired story and antagonists, far too little action, too much blabbering and cringey PEGI-13 fillers and jokes.
2/10, this movie is utter trash so don't waste your time.
