A serviceable sequel, elevated by its radiant leading lady and an over-the-top villain.

Very sweet and very fun. I think some of the stunts are a little bit dumb, but I had a lot of watching this.

I assume there will be a sequel to this sequel. If so, no complaint from me, especially if Wiig and Pascal are in it.

Gadot as Wonder Woman -- or Diana Prince, as she's more commonly known -- may be the single best piece of casting in a superhero role since Christopher Reeve first donned the cape and spandex of the Man of Steel.

It's a refreshingly silly and airy adventure focused on the emotions of one character, Wonder Woman (played by Gal Gadot), and a charming end to a tiring year of cinema.

It just feels so over the top, hammy, and unearned. It doesn't feel lovingly hammy, it feels accidentally cheesy.

The stakes wind up being high enough, but the antagonists represent a huge comedown from the God of War and the German army, and despite the efforts of Gadot and Pine, the film can't overcome those hurdles.

Jenkins and Gadot have gone and done it: They've gotten me invested in the emotional well-being of a franchise superhero.

Overall, I felt disconnected from the movie except for moments that focused on human-scale situations. It struggles to be relevant and serious, but in a superficial, cartoony way. It drones on for two and a half hours but it hasn't got a lot to say
December 25, 2020
In the end, this movie never makes the case for why Wonder Woman is back in action beyond the obvious commercial imperatives.

Like so many movies and TV shows before it, "Wonder Woman" has discovered the secret recipe for fun: Just set it in the '80s.
December 25, 2020
"Wonder Woman 1984" is narratively messy and doesn't push the "Wonder Woman" story forward in any significant ways, other than having Di knock off some baddies and getting her closer to present day.

[T]hough it tries, Wonder Woman 1984 (WW84) struggles to speak to this moment and deliver a coherent message.
December 25, 2020
It's a lumpen mass of half-ideas and glaring fan service, topped by a horrendous montage ending that is clearly designed to inspire hope, courage, and kindness, but will more likely make everyone wonder if that was why they waited two and a half hours.
December 24, 2020
There's enough creative juice like that firing up "Wonder Woman 1984" that, in the end, it reminds us that a cinematic superpower can transport us away from the doldrums of reality and save the day, along with buttered popcorn.
December 23, 2020
Bonkers in a way that superhero movies these days don't have the nerve to be.
December 23, 2020
Is Wonder Woman 1984 entertaining? Sure, it's fun, hits all the right superhero marks, and visually, the 1980-something world is a technicolor throwback to behold.
December 23, 2020
You'd have to be a Grinch to hate on a blockbuster sequel that's so puppy-eager to please. But despite the fem power of star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins, all the CGI huffing and puffing over 2 1/2 hours deflates momentum and audience endurance.
December 23, 2020
The film shows a preference for forgiveness over vengeance, which feels like an okay way to end this particular year.
December 23, 2020
"1984" doesn't have the same jaw-dropping impact of "Wonder Woman" (how could it?), but Jenkins maintains a steady hand on the character and her story.
