Screenplay: Allan Heinberg (based on a screen story by Zack Snyder, Allan Heinberg, and Jason Fuchs).

Twitter Capsule: At last! A long, heavy, visually banal, shakily scripted superhero movie, strangling its putative appeal. Compliiccit.

Second Capsule: I so wanted to like Wonder Woman and expected to, but I really hated it, wish I hadn't seen it, and think a lot of people are acting crazy.

VOR:   The movie has touched a nerve; it obviously speaks to needs and gaps I can't relate to. But it's dismayingly like every other superhero film.
