Wonder What?????? - Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) - Review

Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman's next big screen adventure finds her facing two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah…This time around, the sequel is set in the year 1984 instead of the WWI era, and we see Wonder Woman will be going up against two new supervillains -- the devilishly cunning entrepreneur Maxwell Lord (played by Pedro Pascal) and Cheetah-transforming scientist Barbara Ann Minerva (played by Kristen Wiig). This is the first time we see Kristen Wiig in her full "Cheetah" transformation.

I am not sure what happened with the writing between the first movie and the second but there was a big difference. This movie was not that good. The story was just so dumb. Wishes…from a crystal? This was such a cheesy way to bring back an old character. The ending was absurd as well. As much as I would like to think that people would do the right thing, there are too many selfish people to believe this ending to be believable in the slightest. The villains were silly in comparison to the foes already conquered in the DC universe. It was just a let down on so many fronts I just cant recommend this movie unless you want to see all the DC superhero movies. It will be hard to watch the third one when it comes out if this is what I have to look forward to.

Ranking 5/10
