Wonder Woman 1984



FilmsToSeeOrNot is back from the pandemic (and though NYC is not, thankfully, NJ is) with Wonder Woman 1984, which, unfortunately, I found to be uneven in its delivery.


Don't get me wrong. The action scenes are up to Director Patty Jenkins’ excellence, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman is fabulous and Kristen Wiig performs well as her nemesis, but the premise of “what happens if everyone gets what they wish for,” though interesting, bogs down the film's flow in its presentation, making the children in the audience antsy.

I, also, found Pedro Pascal’s performance as the super-villain more manic than menacing.

I give Wonder Woman 1984 a 3.9 out of 5, but hope for even greater thrills from Jenkins and Gadot in the future.
