Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman 1984 is being praised as a heartfelt sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman. Gadot reprises her role as Diana Prince, a.k.a Wonder Woman, while Pedro Pascal portrays Maxwell Lord, a greedy businessman who appears as Princess Diana’s antagonist.
Gadot recently participated in a Twitter Q&A during a virtual Wonder Woman 1984 watch party with fans after Wonder Woman 1984 premiered in theatres and on HBO Max on Christmas Day in the U.S. One fan asked Gadot and director Patty Jenkins what scene they enjoyed shooting the most and the one they were most proud of, and Gadot answered “Hard to answer since I had different special moments.. but the one that means the most to me is the one at the end between max and WW”
The storyline of the movie surrounds a Dream Stone which can fulfil any wish. Diana, Barbara are the initial victims to fulfil the dreams unintentionally. Max Lord, a failed businessman, was well known about the abilities of Dream stone. So he managed to get the stone and turn himself into the dream stone. Later Lord attempts to grant the wishes of the entire world in a foolish grasp for power.
One flaw that has not been remedied, though, is the length. Jenkins doesn’t excitingly fill all two and a half hours of story, and the final battle is not even the best one the movie has to offer. There is a far more gripping car chase through Cairo midway through, and a Cirque du Soleil-like flashback to Diana’s Amazon training at the start of the film.
Regardless, Jenkins is leagues better than most of the dudes directing over at Marvel Studios these days. The most perfect moment of “Wonder Woman 1984” sees Diana discover a new superpower. Gadot’s vulnerable face and the graceful movement of the camera around her as Hans Zimmer’s thunderous score crescendos is powerful.
The movie also offers a surprise at the post credits. The movie is succesfully streaming and receiving heartfelt appreciation from different parts of globe.
