All the building signs at the German airbase where the mustard gas is loaded into the bomber are in French, and so is the writing on the blackboard inside the command tower/office where Diana and Ludendorff fight. This makes sense given the geographical location of the base, namely Belgium where all military writings at this time were still in French instead of the Flemish (Dutch) spoken by many of the soldiers.

I used to want to save the world. This beautiful place. But I knew so little then. It is a land of beauty and wonder, worth cherishing in every way. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness simmering within. And mankind? Mankind is another story altogether.

Boring and uneventful, just like all the other "Super Hero" movies.
I would have given this comic book adventure a solid "3," but because of the vomitous array of hype surrounding this film, I couldn't do more. I can't believe the sheer amount of glowing comments I received regarding this truly forgettable film. Worse still, I purchased the DVD, only to donate it to the first pre-pubescent teenager I could find, moments later. To make this review mercifully short, NO amount of action or CGI special effects will ever make up for a great script, or great acting performances. That why, like sugar-sweet breakfast cereal, "Trix are for Kids," which this pile of overrated movie-making is. When I judge any film, I simply count how many times I YAWN during the movie. I can't even count how many times I yawned watching this tedious bore, out loud. The writing was comic book, the acting was comic book, and so was the water-weak plot. But where the director REALLY took a stumble was during the midpoint, where this action flick suddenly took an unexpected (and fatal) 180-degree change of pace, attempting to build on the love affair between the principals by inserting a useless "serious" moment in the play that only succeeded in unnecessarily slowing the film's genre pace to a bizarre exposition of supposed "seriousness" where it had no business being at all. There is no way on earth I would sit through another WW sequel, and certainly not with this director at the helm.
