The eighties-obsessed sequel to the hit superhero movie Wonder Woman is a different animal. For better or worse. It’s much lighter in tone and the violence isn’t as gritty as the war epic vibe in the first movie. It’s an amusing contrast but there’s some moments that venture into sheer slapstick.
Gal Gadot remains as good as ever in the role of Diana Prince. Through supernatural means, we see the return of Chris Pine. Some of the best and most heartwarming moments occur between these two. Their chemistry is still great together.

I cannot describe how invigorating I found the opening sequence. I didn't even see it in IMAX and I felt the utter majesty of those sweeping cameras. The combination of CGI with location shooting and some proper stunt work sold me on the film immediately, but what had me really excited was how confident this film was in establishing its theme: greatness should not be attained through trickery or deception. Already we know this is a story that will pit Diana against her worst impulses to cut corners and take risks to find happiness. Marvelous, first a solid foundation, now let's jump in!
The film dazzles, charms, and seduces you with its bright colours and angelic choirs venerating the uber wonder woman before you as she non-lethally kicks all kinds of arse. Anytime the film is in full …
