Following and overwhelming positive first reaction to the film and favorable critics' buzz, reviews of Wonder Woman sing high praises for the origins movie.

Few would argue against Jensen's line of thinking, but we're more intrigued to discover if Wonder Woman will write its name in the history books as an instant classic, perhaps rubbing shoulders with Batman Begins and Superman: The Movie in the process.
