Hey guys, gays, and gworls! I’m back at it like a crack addict with a review on ‘Wonder Woman: Bloodlines.’
This movie takes place in the DCAU (DC Animated Universe) where we get a new origin story that begins to affect her in her life post-Darkseid and Doomsday. Old and new people from her past comes into play and it’s honestly one of the best DC animated movies that I have seen so far!
‘Wonder Woman: Bloodlines’ was great as to where they made sure the moral of the movie blended perfectly with the plot without drawing the focus away from either topic. On the surface, you only see Wonder Woman and friends fighting for the greater good and dissecting clues to be able to dismantle the villains. But what turns this into more than your average movie is the fact that this turns into a journey of Diana and another character on the road to redemption.
They felt as though they disappointed their mothers by either going to follow their calling or feeling less than. Throughout the movie, Diana constantly tries to make the mission something she must do to herself to prove to herself that she didn’t leave Themiscyra and that her mother wouldn’t be disappointed when in actuality, she has nothing to prove. She left the island to live up to what the Amazons (female Greek demigods) are supposed to do. And what they’re supposed to do is protect the world of man from the greater evil!
Despite being told by Steve Trevor and Etta about all the things she’s done to contribute to keeping the world safe, she still feels as though she’s a disappointment. Of course, at the end of the movie she learned that she made her mother proud. Same thing with Silver Swan. Despite her losing her mother and not feeling like enough, with the help of Diana, she was able to realize that although she wasn’t what her mother wanted to be that she was still loved.
I also want to get into how the good sis Wonder Woman was throwing them hands!!! Homegirl was really handing out fades left and right like it was nothing. As usual, Wonder Woman showed us that she’s not to trifled or played with! Aside from some boxy looks, the New 52-ish movie animation looked good. The fight scenes were Everything! We got to see her battle Giganta, Cheetah, Medusa, Silver Swan, and more! The good sis Etta and love interest Steve Trevor bought not only brought the action, but they bought the wits and the jokes to the battle! This was great to see Wonder Woman try to not take on threats herself and see her work with a team other than the Justice League.
Overall, I give this movie a good 8.5 out of 10! This movie is undoubtedly a must watch! ‘Wonder Woman: Bloodlines’ is available for purchase on iTunes, Vudu, and more. Physical copies are available at a Best Buy near you.
