“I’m so happy to report that ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ is an absolute blast from start to finish. An exceptional compliment to the first film, and it is filled with emotion, hope, love, action, romance and humor. Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot delivered one of DC’s best sequels. I cried when it was over.
“I can’t say much about the plot because of the spoilers, but it’s very clever. The opening sequence alone is impressive, and each action scene is different and unique. I also think this is one of Hans Zimmer’s best soundtracks… And, for those wondering, the chemistry between Gal Gadot and Chris Pine is amazing.

“I’ve watched ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ before! Patty Jenks literally made an 80s-style movie in every way, which makes it unique today. It seems more ambitious than the original and at the same time more content. Gal Gadot simply delivers epic moments like Wonder Woman. “
I saw # WonderWoman1984! @PattyJenks literally made an ’80s movie all over the place which makes it so unique for today. It looks both bigger than WWI while being more contained.
Lots of Diana Prince and epic Wonder Woman moments as @GalGadot literally flies away! pic.twitter.com/QluelKwYly

“For me, Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig are the highlights of the film. Pascal dived headlong into the character in a savage portrayal of Max Lord, a conflicting but very evil villain. The evolution of the Leopard Woman throughout the film is heartbreaking, yet epic. We need more! “
Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig are the highlights of # WonderWoman1984 for me.
Pascal goes ALL IN on a savage portrayal of Max Lord, a conflicted but vile villain.
The evolution of Wiig Cheetah throughout the film is heartbreaking but epic. We need more! # WW84 pic.twitter.com/hBIUDkXCFN
