The first ‘Wonder Woman’ reactions hit Twitter and wow, just wow

Wonder Woman, Wonder Womaaaaan … All the world’s waiting for you … and the power you possess … 

And the wait is over!

It’s time to spin around and put your wrists together because the studio embargo for social media reactions to Wonder Woman lifted on Thursday night, and the small group of film writers who got to see it lassoed up this fun truth: Wonder Woman is pretty great.

Mashable was among them, and a full review will post in the coming days. But writers were allowed to tweet short reactions, almost all of them glowing like Themyscerian battle armor.

Some were relieved. Others ecstatic. And not a rotten tomato in the whole bushel.

And me? I struggled with some of the movie’s clunky transitions, and the villain(s) are, once again, underdeveloped and under-served. Wonder Woman isn’t perfect, but Gal Gadot is perfect as Wonder Woman

She saves the movie, she saves DC, and she absolutely saves our faith that this movie can finally be the one.

I will say this: There are many writers who were at the first wave of screenings who didn’t tweet a reaction. I read that as “didn’t like it all that much,” because that’s how a lot of us handle an averse reaction — stay mum.

And I spoke with several writers at the screening who weren’t crazy about it, or who have since tweeted more elevated praise than what they were thinking at the time. The movie does get better in your memory though, and let’s face it — great leads with great chemistry go a really, really long way when it comes to your long-term perceptions of a film.

Bottom line: When the embargo for full reviews lifts, watch the percentages of sentiment shift. But Wonder Woman will be a big hit.
