2020’s Wonder Woman 1984 may not be as good as 2017’s Wonder Woman but it’s by no means the worst entry in the DC Extended Universe. Which may be faint praise, given some of the abominations that have been churned out under the umbrella of that particular franchise. But Wonder Woman was a great movie so not being as good as that movie is no great crime and there is plenty to enjoy in the sequel.
It’s definitely about 30 minutes too long, and, even within the context of it being a superhero movie, it does require a lot of suspending of disbelief but it works more often than it doesn’t.
Score for Christmasishness
For most of the running time, it has nothing to do with Christmas, but then, right at the end of the movie, after everything has been resolved, we see the eponymous character in a very Christmassy scene. It adds absolutely nothing to the story, but it is definitely there.
