Professor Marston & the Wonder Women | Ratings & Reviews

"The woman next to me, in her early 30s I'd guess, let out such a solid groan about 90 seconds into this bio-pic that I placed a bet that she would be gone within the hour. But like me she stuck it out. Despite the lame score, the often leaden direction and the comic sex scenes, the story of Professor William Marston, his wife Elizabeth Holloway, their lover Olive Byrne, and the resulting creation of the Wonder Woman comic, is utterly fascinating."

"Bondage, sadomasochism, threesomes, spanking, whips, ropes, naughty nurses and horny university professors – now that is a superhero origins story. Fortuitously timed to arrive in the wake of the box office behemoth Wonder Woman, writer-director Angela Robinson explores the Amazonian arse kicker's real-life creator in Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, opting for a left-of-centre biopic: less about the genius artist than a polygamous three-way relationship that inspired his famous feminist icon."

Flicks, Luke BuckmasterFlicks

"[Professor] Marston [& the Wonder Women] is simply a love letter to the amazing people who inhabit it."


"This is arguably the phoniest film you'll see all year, marred by clumsy direction, over-obvious acting and a wooden script that skews what was so radical about the thruple's arrangement into something tame and downright boring."


"Wonder Woman's genesis in bondage play and a willfully naughty attempt to subvert the mainstream deserves a more courageous film than this one, gauzy and overscored."

Time OutTime Out

"A sly and thoroughly charming Trojan horse of a movie, "Professor Marston" tells the story of the man who created Wonder Woman and the women who inspired him, both in and out of bed."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"This movie spreads an odd pall of sentimentality and period-glow nostalgia over a fascinating real-life story."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"If there's any justice, this perfectly-timed counter-programming to the Amazon Princess' other big screen date will find an audience..."


"You may long for a more disreputable, less buttoned-up telling, but there is something about this one's sleek, streamlined conventionality that feels both appropriate and pleasing."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"...uses the template of the traditional biopic to put forward "non-traditional" gender roles..."
