Decades after she defeated Ares amidst the First World War, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) strives to lead an everyday existence as the Cold War sets the United States on edge. Diana indulges in the modern amenities of the mid-1980s yet continues to mourn for her lost love, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Yet when two new enemies, media mogul Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and Diana's former friend Barbara Ann Minerva (Kristen Wiig) threaten to upset the balance of the world, it is up to Diana to restore peace. Directed by Patty Jenkins. Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen co-star.~Maggie Sadler
The critics condemed this movie. I thought it had a great moral message, about lusting after power, money, and greed of war. Even Wonder woman herself learned a valuable lesson. The film was not perfect. However I gave a grade of "B" filmed beautifully, Dolby vision, and Atmos were great. Snazzy steelbook Moral
Too funny, no digital code. Had to returned. Really weird!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So So Movie, but great technical demo disc
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
I had very high hopes for WW84, but I must admit that I was a little let down. The story doesn't flow as naturally as the first film and the special effects are not at the high level audiences expect today. That isn't to say the movie isn't entertaining, just not at the level of the previous WW.
From a technical level, the 4K disc is a beauty. Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos soundtrack look and sound phenomenal. A great demo disc if you are looking to test out your set up.
People need to start reviewing the actual product, not the film itself. The picture quality is absolutely superb. The HDR10+ and Dolby Vision are both incredible to look at. Considering the film has a general colorful palette, it allows the film to showcase the 4K resolution and high dynamic range option of your choice. Dolby Atmos audio is pretty fleshed out and a great experience, although I wish it showcased a bit more of the Atmos touch. Overall, I’d say this is a pretty reference quality disc.
I watched this on a 65 inch OLED with a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos system.
For those curious: As for the film itself, it’s not as good as the first. But it’s still a fun ride. Good character development. Wish it had a bit more action. But overall it’s an enjoyable experience. Still very true to the character and Gal Gadot is still incredible as Wonder Woman. I appreciate Patty Jenkin’s use of 35 mm film, which really makes the film a better experience overall.
It's funny. Everyone said that Tenet needed multiple viewings to "get it." I pretty much "got it" on the the first try. Oh I'm sure that I'll pick up other things but not the basic story. I feel that I need to watch WW1984 a number of times. For me the special features helps me understand which way the Director wanted to go. WW1984 is more of a character piece. Sure there was action, just a little different.
The picture quality is awesome, you know you will get this if you are a collector.
This is a fantastic movie! It is purposely very different in tone from its predecessor. Whereas the first was set during the dark days of World War I, this movie is set in the bright neon colors of the 1980s. Diana's standard Amazon weaponry of war (her sword and shield) are absent this time around. This suits the fact that she does not face an army of soldiers like before, but an unscrupulous businessman and a desirous, jealous co-worker of sorts. Desires (wishes) and their unintentional consequences play a big part in this story. It sees the miraculous return of a long-lost love for Diana, but the price to pay is high.
And for an added treat, a guest appearance by a well-known figure from our past is included in a mid-credits scene!
