Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) returns, and somehow her lost love Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) does as well, in this 80s-set sequel to the 2017 DC superhero hit. Patty Jenkins resumes directorial duties, overseeing the retro blockbuster extravaganza that introduces new characters, a powerful businessman played by Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig’s awkward archaeologist.

Wonder Woman 1984 / Reviews

Flicks

Flicks, Steve Newall

Ample action is in place to entertain those of us who’ve been hankering for a blockbuster experience (highlights include a duel inside the White House, Wonder Woman’s assault on an Egyptian military convoy, and her thwarting of a wonderfully 80s mall heist that had me looking up Commando locations). There’s enjoyment to be found in both the titular 80s setting and the film’s improbable romantic reunion, too, but it just doesn’t quite add up to the end of 2020 knockout we might have wished for.

Having a good heart – and likeability – doesn’t automatically make a good film.

Overstuffed storytelling mars an otherwise stunning sequel.

An epically long and epically brash film...

One of the most enjoyable blockbusters to be released since 1984.

A sprawling, muddled mess cribbed from superior films and source material.

Doubles down on the premise and treats the material with the utmost gravitas. And, somehow, it works.

Wonder Woman 1984 really is the hero 2020 needed all along.

A pretty fun time even if the extremely busy "1984" almost wears out its welcome at a hefty two and a half hours.

A much-needed blockbuster full of humour, spectacle and optimism.

Three movies rolled into one... And it's only the first two of these that truly take us somewhere wonderful.

Highlights not only the dire state of the live-action superhero genre in film, but the dire state of Hollywood filmmaking as a whole.

Solid where it counts, maudlin in the way its fans need it to be, and, similarly, just funny enough to be charming.
