Really like the original WW movie (2017).
So was looking forward to "more of the same."
Didn't get that.
Instead, got one of the most disappointing movies this year. Or maybe for the last 2-3 years. Starts well enough, back in Amazonia, with a big screen-filling epic event that really delivers.
Then, the credits roll and it's quickly down hill from there.
Juvenile stuff. BAD juvenile stuff. Worse, it's not even ... exciting.
This was a bigger piece of ka-ka than the last Wonder Woman film. It's 2h31m long and it took more than 50mins into the thing to start to show what was going to happen in the story. My guess -- the writer, director, and everyone involved in the thing got paid by the minute at the loss of what might otherwise have been a good film. It's a shame that DC has found an actress who's a great fit for Diana/WW, have shown that they can make this character amazing in the other DC films, and then go waste Gal's time / abilities / career and all the production money making these PHHT films. The representation of 1984 was off mark -- including too much of the 1970s and later 80s in addition to the early 80s. This theme seems more like a cheap grab at doing a period piece for Wonder Woman. And all that isn't to mention the non-WW-cannon elements in the film. IMO the film was a number of shameful missed opportunities.
Loved it. I grew up watching the Wonder Woman TV show in the 80's with Lynda Carter. This movie was very different and unexpected, but some gadgets were similar. Story line was very different, but that is OK. I love the actors (Gal Gadot is fabulous as Wonder Woman) and I enjoyed the movie. I thought the Villain and the villain's story could have been a bit stronger, but story line was great. I loved it. 4.5 stars out of 5.
The comment about Chris Pine playing Steve Austin (The Six Million Dollar Man) is either very funny, or a foolish, ignorant remark if you don't know your subject matter. Chris Pine portrayed Colonel Steve Trevor, Diana's boss in the U.S. Armed Forces.
The 80s were so awesome. So much they could of done in a modern way to play tribute to that era. Loved WWOne so much. Sad that this follow-up was so lackluster. I appreciate that Gal Gadot still gave a great performance. Chris Pine kinda phoned it in. Kristin Wiig did as best she could with what they gave her. I give it a 4 for Gal. and a 2 for the movie overall.
Not a good follow up to the first movie. Plot is too scattered with poorly crafted characters.
Terrible movie. Very slow and not true to the comic book characters. Too much self-pity and self-interest. Do not waste your time.
Not even worth one star.
Not enough of the cheetah. For a big budget superhero movie Wonder Woman should be fighting some super villain or a big mean space alien instead she's fighting some maniacal greedy businessman creep with suspicious hair.
Gee, that sounds familiar. I mean in WW1 she was fighting Aries the God of War. Also, how does Steve know how to fly jets when last we saw him in WW1 he was fly bi-planes with no jet propulsion. WW2 wasn't a waste but it could have been better.
Such a disappointing movie. I gave it only one star because the only good thing about this movie is the presence of Gal Gadot. She could not save a dismal script.
A very long movie, and not all that good. I found the first one more interesting.
Loved it. You have to let go and just get into fun! It's about feeling better. AND I DID.
BTW Margarita89's comment is incorrect. Chris Pine is NOT playing Steve Austin!!! :)
Not quite as groundbreaking as the first film, yet still better than Batman vs. Superman and Justice League.
Interesting take however it just did not have enough meaningful substance for me. Also, way to much overall/drama or was that fluff. I would have liked to have seen Pines character take on a more meaningful and pivotal role but just in a different kind of way, of course.
Truly disappointing. The actors seemed to be either half asleep or extremely caffeinated and the plot made no sense. Spare yourself the disappointment and just watch the first Wonder Woman again.
So bad. So disappointing. Weird villains. Awful action sequences. Dumb plot. The first Wonder Woman was so good; this is the exact opposite. The only reason to watch this movie is to see if it's really as bad as they say. It is.
Started out good but I was really ready for it to be over long before it ended! I’ve found most sequels don’t live up to the first movie-Toy Story being an exception! Gal did look stunning in her white dress early in the film!
I actually loved this version! Even better than the other movie version. Chris Pine makes an appearance as Steve Austin (the Six Million Dollar Man) when Diana makes an accidental wish on a magical rock and the chemistry between the two is magical as well. It made me miss the old original show, even the ridiculous fashion!
Well, according to early reviews it was supposed to be good. Actually it was a lengthy action flick with nothing much more. Moral of the story/film: be careful what you wish for--you might get it. Corollary: "magic" always comes at a price.
At the end of the movie my husband and I looked at each other bewildered. This movie was HORRIBLE, SUPER boring and almost laughable it was so ridiculous. Such a shock because we both really enjoyed the first one.
Wonder Woman 1984 was a VERY long film, but it was overall enjoyable (I just liked the action). It also had a positive message (that women can do anything!), and the moral of the story was that if you want more/are greedy, there are consequences.
Wonder Woman 1984 is the sequel to the Wonder Woman 2017 film, and the original was better.
In Wonder Woman 1984, Diana Prince is living in 1984 (that's why the movie is called that), and she discovers a stone that grants a wish, but others want it. Diana makes new enemies (Maxwell Lord and the Cheetah), and squares off against them.
There's are two morals to this story: "Never cast Kristen Wiig in an action movie and don't watch this dud"
I did find this movie very enjoyable, although it is definitely a sophomoric effort compared to the first one. The opening scene with Diana on Paradise Island is pretty much only there for the sake of the trailer; it has nothing more than a vague thematic parallel with the rest of the movie, and can be skipped without costing you anything. After that we get some fun 80s romping and character establishment, all of which is pretty good, and then at the halfway point we get to the more actiony stuff, which is even better (as long as you don't mind a lot of "just go with it" nonsense, much of which is only there to pander to geeks and fanboys, and detracts from the movie's success as a story rather than as a Wonder Woman thing). Unfortunately, the film doesn't really stick the landing; the climax attempts to be emotionally resonant, but mostly just comes across seeming confused. So there's a lot of good stuff in this film, but it's still very imperfect. I would rank it as less good than Aquaman, but better than Justice League, both of which are neither excellent nor terrible IMO.
It was fine. At least she learned to fly and is discovering new things she can do
