Wonder Woman 1984 Review
7.5 out of 10
A good film. This is a romance and “hope conquers all” movie with action serving as a backdrop. It is not a normal follow on to a superhero movie.
It is obviously not the film investors, critics, or most fans wanted. A hard-hitting action film would have capitalized on the formula that made the first movie a massive hit.
It is a credit to DC Films that they allowed the women producers (including Gal Gadot) to continue the timeline and development of Diana’s character as they saw fit.
It is sad, though, that the trailers deceptively marketed Wonder Woman 1984 as an action film first. But manipulation is what advertising and promotion folk do and we are all poorer for it.
Worst CGI ever. The Cheetah looks like it was hit with an ugly stick. The Cheetos’ Cheetah looks better.
8 out of 10 if Lynda Carter’s cameo had been longer. Those few seconds were not enough; a flash of a smile and she was gone. I hope she returns.
