The public verdict is out, and Wonder Woman 84 is getting skewered by audiences and critics all over the place. I watched the latest DCEU movie directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, who returns as the Amazonian hero. Like many did when it dropped on HBO Max, (good looking out to roommate with that subscription, I’ll get takeout for you soon as payment) I gave it a look after Christmas and feel like the odd man out for actually liking it.
Wonder Woman 84 (just call it ‘Wonder Woman 2’, or come up with a better subtitle. Come on DC) still has some flaws, issues, and problems I noticed with the story, but nothing coming close to the trash heap that I’ve seen getting described by other sources. Then again, I knew people who treated BvS like it was the death of cinema as an art form. I just thought it was on par with some of the average-at-best superhero films of the early 00’s before the one-two punch of the Nolan Batman films and the MCU changed the landscape of comic book movies forever.
