Long time readers will know that I am not a big fan of the DC universe of super heroes, but hey, I did like Gal Gadot‘s first Wonder Woman film… this one, not so much. WW84 was poorly written above all else. It was a stupid film. The dialogue was boring. The character arcs were predictable and boring. The fanboy throwbacks to the 80s lost its “cutesy” factor within minutes and continued to drag out for the entirely, too-long film.
Even Gal Godot, who I like, seemed to mail this one in. I am sure most of it was due to the script. I have seen better stories written in junior high school. The script was dripping with idiocy and neon. If you took the worst of the 80s and put them in a mixer and added some slime before pouring it out on a piece of paper, this would be the result.
I know I am being much more harsh on this film that I usually am on a movie I didn’t like but I think it is because I was actually thinking it was going to be good. I am so disappointed.
