Diana Prince lives quietly among mortals in the vibrant, sleek 1980s — an era of excess driven by the pursuit of having it all. Though she’s come into her full powers, she maintains a low profile by curating ancient artifacts, and only performing heroic acts incognito. But soon, Diana will have to muster all of her strength, wisdom and courage as she finds herself squaring off against Maxwell Lord and the Cheetah, a villainess who possesses superhuman strength and agility.
Director: Patty Jenkins
Cast: Gal Gadot, Pedro Pascal, Chris Pine, Kristin Wiig
Review: 1984, a sequel to the fantastic Wonder Woman, which showed a cool breeze in the middle of a saturated superhero cinematic market, is a fantastic continuation of the story of our favorite super heroine. Lighter in action, but thematically profound, this may not be a film that pleases everyone. Gal Gadot, continues to prove to be the perfect choice to play the part. The actress maintains a strong bond with the audience , really showing all the strong emotions that the character feels during the course of the story. Without her, the film would lose something really essential: her soul. The story, thematically linked to greed, our deepest desires and selfishness, provides a journey of development for the characters that makes us reassess certain attitudes taken throughout our lives. The story seeks to develop each of the characters, and this is what gives it so much strength. The film is completely different from the first, its style is radically changed, becoming lighter. Wonder Woman 1984, is a serviceable sequel, elevated by its radiant leading lady and an over-the-top villain.
Verdict: Worth the Popcornn
