To be sure, we get a classic comic book movie storyline about a megalomaniacal madman intent on taking over the world, but there’s often a relatively light tone to the proceedings. This is a throwback piece of pure pop entertainment.
Loved 1984 more than the first. Great romance story, loved seeing Pedro Pascal out of his armor acting up a storm, a little supernatural twist, Kirsten Wiig got to play a femme fatale more complicated than Sybil, and I especially loved the "magical realism" cinematic touch - we haven't seen much of that since 1984.
There's still a lot to love. Gadot remains a charismatic presence who wields the lasso with authority, even tethering lightning bolts in some arresting moments. However, I missed the more hand-to-hand gladiatorial aspect of so many fight scenes in the first movie.
While there are some visually striking action sequences as Diana and her new super-powered foe square off -- and Gadot remains extremely appealing in humanizing the character -- the last act devolves into a bit of a mess.
Sadly, all that glittered in the franchise’s first outing is gone in Wonder Woman 1984. The disappointing sequel highlights not only the dire state of the live-action superhero genre in film, but the dire state of Hollywood filmmaking as a whole.
It's a Decent Movie.considering 1st one its a major let down, the story was intriguing but the execution was little meh, the soundtrack/music was brilliant,the entry scene at themiscyra the contest was awesome and then the mall fight it was little cringe but good. the 80s vibe was less but good and throughout the movie the theme and feel shifts drastically, the stone's story and overall first half was felt little dragged and most of the elements in the movie was little unbelievable/no sense, the steve's entry and his catching up with time was amazing, the references of invisible jett and wonder womens flying ability was awesome and the cameo at the end was awesome too lynda as god was brief but amazing, the pedro pascal character and his son literally the heart of this movie there acting was brilliant, others were decent. the 2nd half was good considering 1st half was dragged and slow this half's action scenes that were majorly absent from 1st half was good the truck fight and the golden armor fight was awesome, the ending with nukes and wishes thing was insane and happy ending at last was predictable although the thrills at the end was awesome, The cheetah felt little wasted although her character was decent, the wonder women and steve's goodbye and the end person talk was good.Overall with some cringe moments and good moments its sometimes dragging and sometimes entertaining but Its a decent Movie!
