I finally saw this movie and really liked it! I thought seeing a bunch of WW’s rogues was fun, and I absolutely loved the fights with Silver Swan and Medusa - especially Medusa! I was also super excited to see Ferdinand!
I liked Steve and Etta as Diana’s backup (capable, but not goddess-level), and I enjoyed Etta and Steve’s back and forth dialogue for the most part.
I have a couple gripes, such as the fact that Vanessa was still a murderer, but seemed to just get away with it… I understand WW wanting to help her live and seek a better path, but this almost felt like Diana was just a-okay with her hurt friend murdering people. (Maybe she didn’t know about that? I’ll go with that explanation in my head…)
Also, a couple jokes fell flat, and I agree with some others that the royal speech scene with Etta’s arms wrapped around two women on stage was out of place. (For that matter, why was Steve in his undershirt?) If they really wanted to show Etta with some Amazons, she could have been flirty in the healing chambers or afterwards as part of a celebration/feast or even just have her and Steve standing off to the side like Vanessa.
I do wish it were a bit longer to flush out some of the story beats and character moments in the back half like others mentioned, but overall this was a fun movie with some epic comic moments come to life! I also liked how it referenced various periods from WW’s history.
