‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Whisks You Away From Your Worries

Unless you have been enjoying this year from under a rock, you know that 2020 has been a tough year for all. While we are at the end of it, we are all searching for some wholesome goodness to make us hopeful for 2021. Your search ends with ‘Wonder Woman 1984.’ In 2017, we saw Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) rescue Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and leave Themyscira to defeat Ares, the God of War in the midst of the first World War. This movie jumps ahead a few decades and we see Diana working at the Smithsonian but still missing Steve Trevor. She befriends a co-worker Barbara (Kristen Wiig) and together both of them encounter a rock that grants them wishes. An oil tycoon named Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) is also searching for the rock and when he finds it, he shares the gift with the world.

This story is perfect for the ’80s

This movie’s core story could have settled in any era, but it is only perfect in the eighties. It adds a whole new color palette to the movie packed with nostalgia and showing us a world at the brink of a technological breakthrough. Another reason the eighties works is that many DC shows like Superman and Wonder Woman came out during that time. It gives the fans another reason to revisit one of the golden periods in comic book adaptations.

Gal Gadot proves there is more to her than action

In the first movie, Diana was new to the human world and found wonder in everything she saw. Now that she has lived among humans for so long, we see a more mature version of the character. It is a delight to see that because we see more sides to the character we have loved so much. Like how she has a whole different life that doesn’t revolve around saving humans and like how, after staying among us for so long, she still believes humans are inherently good. It is a delight to watch Gal Gadot as the Wonder Woman in the ’80s.

The movie is not perfect but will still make you smile

This movie explores a lot more of the lore about the world that Diana comes from. We get a glimpse of Themyscira as the movie begins and see more of the Amazonians in action. We also know more about their history before Diana was born. Things like Wonder Woman’s invisible jet and her lasso’s various uses are explored, and all those scenes can be only thoroughly enjoyed on the big screen. We would have liked to hear more of the original soundtrack and a scene that would match the barracks scene in the first movie.

WATCH OR NOT:

Fans of DCEU and comic book movies should not think twice before booking tickets for this movie. It is everything you would want in a sequel and more. And for anyone who wants to find hope as the year ends, you will find some as the movie ends.

P. S. Stay for the mid-credits scene.
