Professor Mars yawn's blundering women

While the premise seemed interesting, I could not help but agree that Angela Robinson had a surprisingly bland approach to filming it. Rebecca Hall wears clothes and makeup to look over 50 when she was supposed to portray Elizabeth Marston in her 30's. She seemed to change her voice to speak slowly and denote a much older woman. Olive on the other hand tended to whisper some of the most important lines in the film and the characters pause too often for dramatic effect, but it looks like the actors have forgotten their lines. The much over hyped sex scenes are mostly PG but as usual any depiction of bullying or violence is too extreme, such as when Marston's son is in a fight at school. The violent cartoon drawings shown in the movie probably were not from actual Wonder Woman comic books. but exaggerations similar to them.

Puts 50 Shades firmly in the shade...

Raw, gutsy, confronting, bullsh*t free. 50 Shades teases and promises much but barely touches on core material which here is so openly dealt with.

I'm pretty open-minded, but the very unconventional values depicted here are so frank and honest I would feel awkward watching this with most people who wouldn't be so inclined, and who would almost certainly turn away in disgust.

Marston's advocated DISC Dominance Inducement Submission Compliance theory and used comic book character Wonder Woman with its overtly sadomasochistic themes to portray how women can be powerful. His polyamorous relationship with wife Elizabeth and mistress Olive, and the women with each other, is something which would still not be widely accepted even today.

If you're jaded with most movies and want something to challenge and wake you up, watch this!

An Untold Story Worth Knowing

Wonder Woman was a hit as a comic book in the past and recently a hit at cinemas around the world, so if this story was going to hit the mainstream, it only makes sense that now's the time. It seems as though more and more true stories are being made into films, and this may just be for me personally, but unique and original films seem to be dwindling down and more sequels and remakes taking their place. I believe that filmmakers choose to make true stories nowadays because the lack of original or interesting content is hard to come by, so things that have happened out in the real world seems like a safe bet that people will find enjoyable, for the most part. Quite frankly, I just thought Wonder Woman was made by a man who liked superheroes, but there's much more to it than that. If you wish to be intrigued by a story that's consistently surprising, then Professor Marston and the Wonder Women may just be the film for you.

William Moulton Marston is the original author of the Wonder Woman stories, even though many of the books he wrote used the pseudonym Charles Moulton. Living a life as a professor, he became infatuated with one of his students. His wife sharing the same affections toward her lead to a love triangle between the three of them. William discovering that their traits made up the perfect woman, this lead to the creation of the character we all know and love today. Being a much more sexualized character in the past, things began to spiral out of control for this family.

I loved watching this movie, but I also found myself wanting more in terms of how it was telling this story. I felt as though it was taking me through the motions rather than coming up with a clever way of telling its story. Yes, it has come clever editing techniques in the way that it goes back and forth through multiple periods of time, and even though the editing style was easily the stand out to me here, it wasn't enough to completely suck me in. Where I feel this film shined was in it's casting.

Luke Evans has always impressed me, whether it's an appearance as a generic villain in Fast & Furious 6 or showing his musical talents in Beauty and the Beast just to name a couple, I've always seen him as someone who could be a real household name one day. This is definitely one of his most subtle performances, but the way he hid his accent and played off of each actress/actor. Rebecca Hall is wonderful as always and upon looking up Bella Heathcote's acting credits and seeing that she appeared in movies like In Time and Fifty Shades Darker and still having no clue who she was until now made me think that she wouldn't be memorable, but I can see her starring in her own film in the coming years. She came off as a very likable woman here and I can't wait to see more of her.

In the end, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women uses a lot of techniques that countless other films do in recent years so that was quite the downfall to me, considering the subject matter was so risqué and intriguing for a modern audience, given our present climate. It's not going to be for everyone, due to the fact that the story itself may turn viewers off, but it's a true story that I'm sure many would like to discover. Overall, an impressive movie about the invention of a lovable character that has gone quite a bit under the radar, which is a shame.
