Wonder Woman 1984 features a handy wishing rock that magically makes all your dreams come true. Of course, there’s a price to be paid for those wishes. Meek gemologist Barbara Minerva (played by Kristen Wiig) wishes away her awkwardness, and turns into a Super Villain.
Gal Gadot looks as beautiful and powerful as ever in this sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman. Director Patty Jenkins returns to whip up this movie confection. Yes, Wonder Woman 1984 was supposed to be a Summer Blockbuster, but it morphed into a Christmas movie on HBO Max, instead.
No matter. Although I think Wonder Woman 1984 is a tad too long at two hours and 31 minutes, it’s well worth a look. GRADE: B–
