"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.
December 23, 2020
Wonder Woman 1984 is worthwhile mainly because its sense of hopeful uplift is genuine.

Wonder Woman 1984 feels written by committee to appease Twitter hashtag campaigns.

WW84, while entertaining and frequently funny, lacks the propulsive drive of its predecessor.

The larger problem is that the filmmakers put in everything they could find without locating the one quality they need. No wonder this "Wonder Woman" falls flat - there's no wonder.
December 22, 2020
The plot is bewildering, the character motivations are muddy, and the action sequences - table stakes for this sort of thing - are underwhelming.

You watch thinking of the original three years ago, and wishing this one were better.
December 22, 2020
The film falls short of its predecessor on a number of levels and suffers from many of the problems that plague superhero sequels including an inability to achieve the same level of freshness.
December 22, 2020
Wit has been replaced by feverish caricature, feeling by sentimentality, and Wonder Woman is left with almost nothing to do for long stretches of a very long and disjointed story.
December 21, 2020
You may wonder why Wonder Woman is not as wonder-ful this time around.

It's hard to get past what seems like a lack of consideration-or perhaps concern- for what motivates Diana Prince, or what fans like about her.

Gadot remains a winning and winsome figure in Wonder Woman 1984 and she retains her authentic connection with the audience, but the machinery around her has grown larger and unwieldy.
December 20, 2020
It establishes an entirely new standard for the franchise - such that it's not worth ever making another one.

The result may not be perfect, but its uplifting spirit reminds us of the genetic link between superhero movies and screwball romcoms - all the while retaining an admirably straight face.

The same elements that made "Wonder Woman" such a pleasure to watch are present in "WW84," including the supremely self-possessed Gadot, who plays the title character with the same grace and understatement she brought to the initial installment.
December 18, 2020
The ambitions of "Wonder Woman 1984" may be just outside its grasp, but it seldom feels predestined or predictable - a preciously rare commodity in the genre.
December 17, 2020
It's a moderately diverting sequel.

All of that is fine, as far as it goes: Who wants to stomp on little girls' fun? But little girls also deserve better movies, not just dutiful, sanctimonious versions of the testosterone-fueled ones...
December 16, 2020
Wonder Woman 1984 is solid where it counts, maudlin in the way its fans need it to be, and, similarly, just funny enough to be charming. For all that goes unsaid, the writing is even occasionally clever.
