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.

The sequel takes a powerful core concept and digs into it from three primary perspectives. Two don't land, but Diana's journey winds up being the strongest of the bunch, giving Gal Gadot the chance to excel in her strongest emotional scene yet.

There may be a lot of padding in "Wonder Woman 1984" but there's also a lot to enjoy.
December 15, 2020
This is a movie that absolutely crackles on a big screen, the large canvas playing deserving host to the scale of Wonder Woman 1984's ambitious action sequences, pop art colour palette and scene-stealing villains.

Jenkins is an expert at weaving emotion into set-pieces.

There's a lot to love in WW84: bold performances from a delightful cast, fantastic costumes, Jenkins' fast-paced direction. But it's in service of a plot that loses sight of what makes the character so great in the first place.

This dayglo romp, with its thrilling set pieces and optimistic depiction of a humanity which is able to accept personal sacrifice for the greater good, is exactly the kind of heady escapism we need right now.

WW1984 is three movies rolled into one... And it's only the first two of these that truly take us somewhere wonderful.
December 15, 2020
The film's wickedly pungent social satire must occasionally step aside for superheroics, of course. And while the reteaming of Gadot and Jenkins provides the expected thrills and excitement, this sequel shares the significant flaw of its predecessor.

If WW84 can't quite reach the heights of the first film, it still soars beautifully when it matters most.

Returns Gal Gadot as the Amazon princess with the bulletproof bracelets, introduces a couple worthy foes, and is a pretty fun time even if the extremely busy "1984" almost wears out its welcome at a hefty two and a half hours.
December 15, 2020
A vibrant and virtuous adventure packed with all the heart and heroism we've come to expect from DC's shining light. Wonder Woman 1984 really is the hero 2020 needed all along.
December 15, 2020
This is a throwback piece of pure pop entertainment.
December 15, 2020
As candy-coloured and bright as the first film was all muddy dark-blues, Wonder Woman 1984 has an enlivening sense of bubbly pop to it.
December 15, 2020
Jenkins is an enormously talented filmmaker on whom the studio took a chance - one that's seldom questioned when conferred upon men - and she proves her worth by never letting the spectacle drown out the performances.
December 15, 2020
The screenplay from Jenkins and co-writers Geoff Johns and Dave Callaham does a remarkable thing - it doubles down on the premise and treats the material with the utmost gravitas. And, somehow, it works.
December 15, 2020
A sprawling, muddled mess cribbed from superior films and source material.
December 15, 2020
Early hopes of Back To The Future, an 80s film whose sequels bucked the trend, give way to a dawning sense of Wonder Woman's whip endlessly spinning out but never connecting.
December 15, 2020
In its old-fashioned, uncynical way, WW84 is one of the most enjoyable blockbusters to be released since 1984.
December 15, 2020
It's not that it's lacking in chaos. It just uses chaos more judiciously. That's fitting for a film about wretched excess, about getting what you want and realizing that maybe you were better off without it.
