Synopsis: Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman's next big screen adventure finds her facing two all-new foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah.
Main Features: I adore 2017's "Woman Woman" with all it's flaws, which I find very minor. But I understand the concern it's critics had with it's third act: it seemed hastily attached on. It was almost a forewarning for "Wonder Woman 1984." The sequel feels more like two film ideas mashed into one. I appreciate the first half's tone: a playful, cheesy 1980s vibe (after all, look at the time it is set in) . I also enjoy the second half's dark, dramatic elements. The lack of a cohesive transition between the first half to second is the film's downfall. Gal Gadot continues to prove she was born to play this role and no one else could possibly come close to filling her version of the character's lasso. And Kristen Wiig is very enjoyable as Barb / The Cheetah. But it's disjointed, sudden segway in tones damages it's fun and consistency. I still am excited to see what Gadot and director Patty Jenkins do next with this character, but the bar seems a bit lower now.
Bonus Features: A 30-plus minute featurette looks at the making of the sequel. Plenty of smaller extras (Diana and Barb's relationship, roundtables, gag reel, etc.) are basic but round out the special features that can only be found on the included standard Blu-ray. A UHD digital copy is also part of the set.
Final Call: "Wonder Woman 1984" has two wonderful tones that don't fit wonderfully together in a lackluster sequel only leaving me wanting more from Diana Prince.
