Wonder Woman 1984 was not my favorite DC movie. In fact, I have a theory that DC makes awesome TV shows, but their movies tend to be only mediocre. This one was no exception. If you’re interested in why I thought that, please keep reading!

Gal Gadot returns as Wonder Woman, in 1984, before she joins the Justice League. She has become the heroine we all know and love, in a time when excess was the order of the day. Her alter-ego, Diana, has started working in a museum, and along with a coworker, comes across an artifact that allows one wish to the person holding it.

Diana, in her heart of hearts, wants only one thing: to reunite with Steve Trevor, the man who helped her save the world during WW2.

When Steve’s ghost shows up in the body of another man, Diana must choose to save the world again, and lose her love, or risk the world for the one thing she wants more than anything.

My Thoughts on Wonder Woman 1984

The point at which Diana is reunited with Steve is where the movie kind of lost me. I’m not really a fan of possession in any form, but usually the movies that have that tidbit in them, show the possessor as evil. This was far from the case, so it was weird for me. I think they needed a way to bring Chris Pine into the movie again, and that was the only way to do it.

I was not the first among my friends to see this movie, and I gotta say, the Twitterverse was really kind of “meh” about this movie. I have to admit, I was only kind of “meh” about wanting to see it, because I’ve been disappointed by DC movies before. I love Gal Gadot, however, so was willing to give the movie a chance.

Wonder Woman 1984 was not at the top of my list of favorite movies, and it has about 5 ahead of it on the list of DC movies I enjoy. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. I will say, though, that watching Gal kick booty was fun. Check out the clip below, courtesy of YouTube:
