DC Comics’ straight-to-DVD animated films have so far been mature efforts like Superman: Doomsday and Batman: Gotham Knight, whose kinetic animation and violence seemed more oriented to adults than kids.
But unlike those films’ storied subjects, Wonder Woman is an ancient goddess with a sexualized back story. Can the Amazonian princess with a lot less devoted following hang with the boys?
Yes, by kicking ass, cutting heads and playing the sex card the entire way.
Wonder Woman, released Tuesday on download, on-demand and DVD and Blu-ray, is an action-packed, take-no-prisoners film, the kind of thing you probably won’t want your kids watching at all. That is, unless you want to spend your time explaining horny or scatalogical jokes to them, or shielding their eyes from and the gore and evil that men, and women, do.
