Wonder Woman 1984 negative reviews:

Since 11% of the reviews are considered negative, which makes up only around seven or eight of the reviews, let's check out what they have to say (no spoilers) which includes confirmation the flick is anti-Trump:

• "The disappointing sequel highlights not only the dire state of the live-action superhero genre in film, but the dire state of Hollywood filmmaking as a whole." - full review

• "Overall, Wonder Woman 1984 set its sights high in the sky. Gadot, Jenkins and Wiig are on board but it essentially struggles to find its wings." - full review

• "A Wonder Woman story in 2020 could be uplifting and inspiring, and this film is neither." - full review

• "A sprawling, muddled mess cribbed from superior films and source material." - full review

• "WW84' dreams big, but wishes it were something it's not, and that is compelling and entertaining." - full review

• "Early hopes of Back To The Future, an 80s film whose sequels bucked the trend, give way to a dawning sense of Wonder Woman's whip endlessly spinning out but never connecting." - full review

• "Its earnestness is its greatest strength or biggest weakness, depending on what you're looking for in a superhero film." full review

• "Patty Jenkins' sequel is a well-intentioned but sloppy punch against Trumpism." - full review

Wonder Woman is now placed on the backburner over at DC as Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot are busy with other projects, including Jenkins and Gadot reteaming for Cleopatra, and Jenkins directing Star Wars for Disney with Rogue Squadron, so a Wonder Woman 3 is years away at best.

Wonder Woman 1984 gets released on Christmas Day in theaters and on the HBO Max streaming service at the same time. The movie also stars Chris Pine, Pedro Pascal, Robin Wright, and Connie Nielsen.
