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.

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.

Wonderful!

Even though they did pass up the perfect opportunity to get her publicly known as Wonder Woman . . . Gal Godot flawlessly inhabited her character. Giving us a woman who, despite still grieving, couldn't help but take joy in live. Her loving nature causing her to be open to the goodness in herself and those around her. Wonder Woman's essential trait...

Unfortunately, the director was more concerned about pushing Woke political statements than a decent film It's no surprise the film has bombed everywhere

While this film has a few moments of fun and excitement, and one or two flickers of genuinely interesting drama, it unfortunately is mostly just a bore. I could barely stop shaking my head for the first of two and a half hours of what was nothing special in the realm of comic book movies. With the setting I’d expected the story and characters to move in a...

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

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

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.
