I will NOT darken this post with any of the stupid knee-jerk crap churning around from the butthurt doofuses who don't want to see this make money. BECAUSE IT IS ALREADY MAKING SO MUCH MONEY! Last I heard, it has already passed the $95 million mark and IT IS ONLY FRIDAY!

Short, spoiler-free review first:

Origin story! This is Where Diana Came From and What She Did during WWI. Lots of really cool stuff with the Amazons in the beginning--including Princess Buttercup herself, Robin Wright-Penn, which I did not know about beforehand--and then more cool stuff in London and the German front. Lots and lots of fighting, very messagey in places, but in a "Siddown, child, and allow me to lay some truth bombs on ya!" kind of way, which was IMMENSELY satisfying. The first actual, proper, war zone fight scene actually made me cry. It was overwhelming but in a good way.

SPOILERY VERSION INCOMING! )

So. The SFF community has been . . . chaotic lately. The gender wars have amplified to absurd levels and defenses are going up on all sides. It's mighty hazardous out there, and I've gone back and forth a bit over whether I wanted to comment on any of this or not, and just what I wanted to say should I decide to post anything.

Eventually, after much consideration and false starts, this is what I wound up with.

ETA: Ms. McGuire has posted a follow-up post on the tendency of female geeks to list off their creds as a preemptive strike.
