The scam that Sameer is running in the pub bears some resemblance to the notorious "Nigerian Prince" that was propagated via the Internet. He states that he is from an African country and describes his wealth in extravagant terms, thereby setting up the false offer of a share of his wealth in exchange for a small fee to help him extract it from his country. This form of scam, known as the Advance-fee scam, has existed in various forms since the 18th century. See more »
When Diana and Steve are sailing to London, they both fall asleep near Turkey (where Steve's plane was shot down) and wake up, seemingly the next morning, in London. Not only would an un-helmed sailboat almost immediately drift off course, a sailboat trip from the Eastern Mediterranean to London would take several weeks. [Arriving in London, Steve says "We caught a ride." The boat is tied to a steamer and is being towed. There is no reference in the movie as to the location of the Amazon Island. [In the comics it is in the Atlantic.]
This could be a enchanted boat, possibly over 2000 years old, so may travel by its own means and travel where it needs to go while they sleep. 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.

The DCEU was off to a really rough start. The previous three installments had so much potential but didn't deliver and disappointed me, and probably a lot of fans. But as for "Wonder Woman"... this movie is one of the best comic book movies I have ever seen!
The movie does a great use of its nearly 2 and a half hours running time to show us Diana's origins and how she became who she is. From the island of Themyscira, the Amazonian princess finds herself in London, in the period of the first World War, alongside heartthrob pilot/spy Steve Trevor - and his friendly secretary Etta Candy - where she has to face a mad scientist (Doctor Poison), the general of the German Army (General Erich Ludendorff) and even bigger threats.
And while the villains might not be the strongest thing about this movie, Gal Gadot will steal your heart as Wonder Woman, as she is charming and bad ass, with the performances of Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis and others being also noteworthy. But it is Patty Jenkins's direction and the script from the writing team that makes this movie set the bar high for future female-lead (and male-lead) comic book movies.
Filled with heart, humour, action, some romance and war drama, this movie is not just a game-changer for DC's shared movie universe. It's a game-changer for this genre as a whole.
