James Cameron stands by his 'Wonder Woman' critique

Friday, September 29, 2017

Director James Cameron has defended his critique on 'Wonder Woman' and said he still believes the Patty Jenkins-directed film was "a step backwards". Cameron had said that the Gal Gadot-starrer did no service to the cause of equality as it presents Wonder Woman/Diana Prince as an objectified icon.
In a new interview, the director, 63, said, "Yes, I'll stand by that. I mean, she (Gadot) was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She's absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that's not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the '60s."

Cameron said that Linda Hamilton's character, Sarah Connor from his 'Terminator' franchise was not treated like a sex object, despite her good looks. "She just wasn't treated as a sex object. There was nothing sexual about her character. It was about angst, it was about will, it was about determination... As much as I applaud Patty directing the film and Hollywood, uh, 'letting' a woman direct a major action franchise, I didn't think there was anything groundbreaking in Wonder Woman. I thought it was a good film. Period," he said.
