is back again with my review of, WW84 on HBO Max.
Wonder Woman is a superhero in the DC Comics Universe. As a kid, I watched cartoons and the made for television series. I enjoyed the character. WW84 is a follow-up in the Wonder Woman Dc franchise. The first film, I loved.
In this movie, we find Diana Prince in the year 1984 and longing for, Steve Trevor, the love she lost in movie 1. Her day to day is lonely but she still manages to save folk and be nice to a co-worker who is often ignored by everyone. Bad, or good, things begin to happen when a strange stone arrives in the museum Diana works for.
This movie reminded me of the television series and not a mega movie. It had some amazing action, a bad guy, love, and a questionable bad guy. Though I still think it is a good movie, I think it failed to deliver on the cinematic brilliance most superhero films have. The love story was front and center and I am a huge romantic. Yet, I feel that there was a lot missing in this movie and some things unanswered.
The bad guys, in my opinion, weren’t BAD enough. I think the mysterious stone should have played a bigger part and the movie wasted an opportunity to use it and the one who made it the main character. It would have added a greatly needed obstacle in this film. At one point you feel like they will delve into the origins (which would have been wonderful) but they drop it. The ending felt hollow as if Diana didn’t really have to FIGHT for it or the world which is in danger. There were funny parts that had me laughing and one sad but nothing stood out really. I will say, the lasso work was upscale and jawdropping. This lackluster blockbuster did have me grinning ear to ear but that was due to the surprise cut scene after the credits. So…stick around.
In summation, a decent movie but not a hit the first movie was for me. I find that DC movies are more miss than hits for me.
Look of the film: 5
Character Development: 3
Overall Movie: 3.5
