Not a review, just a couple of reactions and a list of subverted tropes.

I liked it quite a bit.

The opening scene on the island, where you see many women training, fighting, horseback riding, and so forth, was worth the price of admission.

Subverted tropes: (1) Diana (Wonder Woman) rescues the pilot, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). (2) Diana and Steve sleep together. Usually when that happens in a movie, the woman dies. In this movie, Steve dies. (3) Diana and Steve put together a team that includes a Moroccan, a Native American, and a Scot. Usually when that happens in a movie, one of the POC is the first to die. In this movie, Steve (who is white) dies and all the POC are left alive. (4) One of the villains is a woman scientist. (5) A lot of superhero films are about the superheroes showing their goodness by refusing to kill anyone directly (although they mostly don't care about all the people they crush in battles taking place in congested downtown areas). Diana kills loads of people.
