Wonder Woman 84: Just BAD… and boring.

Wonder Woman 84
– by Patty Jenkins.
My rating: ⭐ out of 5 stars.

In 1984, after saving the world in Wonder Woman (2017), the immortal Amazon warrior, Princess Diana of Themyscira, finds herself trying to stay under the radar, working as an archaeologist at the Smithsonian Museum. With the memory of the brave U.S. pilot, Captain Steve Trevor, etched on her mind, Diana Prince becomes embroiled in a sinister conspiracy of global proportions when a transparent, golden-yellow citrine gemstone catches the eye of the power-hungry entrepreneur, Maxwell Lord.

Now, as a dear old friend from the past miraculously enters the picture, and Barbara Minerva, Diana’s insecure gemologist colleague gives in to desire, suddenly, deceit, greed, and false promises catapult Maxwell into the limelight. More and more, cataclysmic events push the world to the brink, and emotionally vulnerable Diana must address a cruel dilemma. Can mighty Wonder Woman save humankind once again?

Wow, this movie was really bad. I quite liked the first movie and I am amazed how the writer(s), apparently with Patty Jenkins in the lead, managed to turn this into a boring piece of crud.

The movie is just so boooooring and nonsensical.

Below are my notes when watching this movie (I had to do something while watching it to not get bored out of my mind) which pretty much speaks for itself.

What is it with the stupid beginning? It was just silly lecturing and did not really bring anything to the story.

Those clowns pretending to be robbers. Was it supposed to be funny? Well it was not. Bad start indeed.

25% and this is boring.

40% and this is still f... boring.

A guy used to fly ancient propeller planes can suddenly fly jet fighter planes. And she "forgot" about radar? Seriously?

Flying straight through exploding fireworks and no one saw them nor did the engines get clogged up? And did they not have a world to save instead of sightseeing by the way?

A fighter jet flying from the US to Cairo in one go? Yeah, right!

Finally at 60% there is some action which is of course dragged down by this silly wish stone's impact on Wonder Woman.

And here we go with the illogical emotional bullshit refusing to accept reality.

My God, the bad guy is such an unintelligent and stupid jerk. No charisma whatsoever. The script is really such a juvenile piece of crud that it is unbelievable.

85% and finally some superhero action. Pretty lousy action but at least some action.

Holy crap! Even the finale is boring and dragged out.

This entire movie could have been condensed into a 45 minutes TV show episode, and not a very good one at that.

Patty Jenkins is going on my watch list… for movies that I will avoid!
