Gal Gadot depicts this comic book hero with an admirable balance of bravery, compassion and determination to engage the enemy, if necessary. The script also avoids letting this story become a one-note ode to feminism. Yes, Gadot depicts a powerful female character, yet in many scenes she offers a positive role model who is willing to work with and accept the input of men. (This extends to her having romantic feelings toward a male, resulting in a moment of implied sexuality.) These traits contrast with some male action-heroes who view women as either victims or pride-boosting ornamentation.
