Wonder Woman 1984: A Decent Sequel to Wonder Woman
Owned for 7 months when reviewed.
Ok, this one is tough to review. The critics and film lovers have condemned this film. For one thing, the first Wonder Woman film with Gal Gadot was amazing, in my opinion. It set such a high bar that this sequel just didn’t quite reach the previous film's expectations. That being said, this film isn't necessarily a poor film, it just doesn't meet the expectations I had going into this one. Unfortunately, the hype I received from the trailer didn't carry over while watching the movie.
There are plenty of great moments though, and the actresses/actors all play their roles very well. Gal Gadot makes an incredible Wonder Woman overall and Kristen Wiig shines as Barbara Minerva, aka Cheetah. Pedro Pascal is charismatic as always playing Maxwell Lord, and Chris Pine returns as Steve Trevor, though I won't spoil how that works. 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 would give it a grade of "B" as it was filmed beautifully.
The steelbook’s design is fantastic. It even sparkles when you put light close to it. So, if you're a collector of good-looking steelbooks this is one of them.
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
This is an excellent 4k movie. The visual effects will impress any enthusiastic movie aficionados.The story is well written, and the actors are best of the best, in every scene.This will easily go in the collection, of great movies. Thank you Best Buy.
i purposely try not to read reviews or look at video of movies before actually watching the whole movie ,, so seeing this for first time .. i now agree with the low reviews of WW1984 after seeing this ,,, there were only 3-4 actions parts and obviously cgi to look pretty only ,, and that's it .. with zero empathy for anyone watching . .
after the opening scene which was short entertainment ,, then for the first hour ,,, i was and kept looking at my clock to see how long i been watching ,,, and that first hour was long which tells you how bad -- the acting ,, the dialog, the plot, the characters just all looked fake .. i particularly donna like actors speaking so softly that i canna understand what they are saying ,, and my sound system was cranked up too .. ha ..
i then paused the movie to make dinner and came back a few days later to see the last hour .. good thing i only paid $5 for this 4k ... i may watch this again ,, when i am more bored with absolutely nuthing else to do ..
The movie is either a hit or miss with most people but the steelbook design is fantastic. It even sparkles when you put light close to it. So if you're a collector of good looking steelbooks this is one of them.
I only buy movies that we deem the best to watch in 4K and we only buy them when they are in Steelbooks. The craftsmanship and the way they feel in your hand make it worth the extra cost. Plus, it looks great in your library.
We loved WW84 in 4K, it felt like we were watching a comic book come to life. The Dolby Atmos presentation really added to our enjoyment of the film.
A great fun filled adventure movie for the family (and the ladies in your life) although for the more fan driven, may find the story falters in the strength the first one had. Loopy concepts and character morals really leave you 'wonder'-ing...
