OUR RATING: ★★½
Superhero sequel directed and co-written by Patty Jenkins. Wonder Woman 1984 follows Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), who lives quietly among mortals in 1980s, an era of excess driven by the pursuit of having it all. She maintains a low profile by curating ancient artifacts, and only performing heroic acts incognito. But soon, Diana will have to muster all of her strength, wisdom and courage as she finds herself squaring off against Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig) as Cheetah.

Diana Prince: Some days, my childhood feels so very far away. And others, I can almost see it. The magical land of my youth. Like a beautiful dream of when the whole world felt like a promise, and the lessons that lay ahead yet unseen. Looking back, I wish I’d listened. Wish I’d watched more closely, and understood. But sometimes you can’t see what you’re learning, until you come out the other side.
Antiope: [referring to athletic competition on Themyscira] I’ve seen this contest humble even the most seasoned warriors, Diana.
Young Diana: I can do it.
Antiope: Just do your best. And remember, greatness is not what you think. Pace yourself and watch.
Antiope: [after Antiope removes Diana from the competition] You took the short path. You cheated, Diana.
Young Diana: No. But that…
Antiope: That is the truth. That is the only truth, and truth is all there is.
Antiope: [to young Diana] You cannot be the winner, because you are not ready to win, and there is no shame in that. Only in knowing the truth in your heart and not accepting it. No true hero is born from lies.
Hippolyta: Your time will come, Diana.
Young Diana: When?
Hippolyta: When you’re ready. Look to the Golden Warrior Asteria. She did not become a legend out of haste. She did it through true acts of bravery. Like patience, diligence, and the courage to face the truth. One day, you’ll become all that you dream of and more. And everything will be different. This world is not yet ready for all that you will do.
Maxwell Lord: [from his TV ad] Welcome to the future. Life is good, but it can be better. And why shouldn’t it be? Everything we’ve ever dreamed about is right at our fingertips. But are you reaping the rewards? Do you have it all?

Join me today. Operators are standing by. You don’t need a pile of money, or some business degree to get started. You don’t even have to work hard for it.

Diana Prince: [as she stops thieves trying to rob a mall jewelry store] I hate guns.
Diana Prince: Diana Prince, cultural anthropology and archaeology.
Barbara Minerva: Barbara Minerva. Geology, gemology, lithology, and part-time cryptozoologist.
Diana Prince: Wow.
Barbara Minerva: I kept busy in college.
Barbara Minerva: Sorry. It’s these heels, you know. It’s stupid. I don’t know why I was going to wear heels. Scientists don’t wear heels.
Diana Prince: Sometimes we do.
Barbara Minerva: [notices Diana’s shoes] Right. Those are cool!
Diana Prince: Have a nice day.
Barbara Minerva: I like those. Animal print.
Barbara Minerva: [referring to Dreamstone] I think the technical term here is “extremely lame”. It’s citrine. A classic stone used in fakes throughout history. I can’t imagine this is worth any more than seventy-five dollars. What do you think?
Diana Prince: Fakes aren’t my forte, but let me see. Mm. Latin.
Barbara Minerva: At least it’s an antique, right?
Diana Prince: Or a purchase from a stall on the Ponte Vecchio last week. You never know.
Diana Prince: [reading from the Dreamstone] “Place upon the object held but one great wish.”
Barbara Minerva: You read Latin?
Diana Prince: Yeah. Yeah. Languages are a hobby.
Barbara Minerva: So maybe it’s like a lucky charm or something?
Diana Prince: Yeah, I guess.
Barbara Minerva: [referring to the Dreamstone granting wishes] Can you imagine?
Diana Prince: If only.
Barbara Minerva: So many things, I don’t even know what I would wish for.
Diana Prince: I do.
Diana Prince: You know, we could go and grab early dinner, and talk about exactly how lame that stone is.
Barbara Minerva: Really?
Diana Prince: Yeah, I mean, citrine? Who are they kidding, right?
Barbara Minerva: [laughs] So lame.
Diana Prince: Dorky.
Barbara Minerva: Lame.
Diana Prince: Yeah, let’s go.
Barbara Minerva: That’s like the lamest of lames.
Diana Prince: Wow. I mean, no one’s made me laugh like this in such a long time. I mean, it’s true, I don’t get out much socially.
Barbara Minerva: You don’t get out much?
Diana Prince: No, not really. No.
Barbara Minerva: I’m sorry. I’m just surprised. Because you just seem like the kind of person who’s like always out. Like people are asking you to go out all the time, and you live out. You’re just out. Like you never get in.
Barbara Minerva: You just seem like you’d be really popular. And I would know because I’ve never been popular.
Diana Prince: You haven’t? You’re so personable. So free. I mean, honestly, I got to say that I envy that.
Barbara Minerva: What? You envy me? That doesn’t make any sense. Oh, my gosh. People think I’m weird. They avoid me, and talk behind my back when they don’t think I can hear them. I’m like, “Guys, I can hear you.”
Diana Prince: Barbara, my life hasn’t been what you probably think it has. We all have our struggles.
Barbara Minerva: Yeah, we do.
Barbara Minerva: Have you ever been in love?
Diana Prince: Yeah. A long, long time ago. You?
Barbara Minerva: So many times, yeah. All the time. Often. So what happened? Where did he go, your guy?
Diana Prince: He died. But I still think sometimes that I see him up there in the sky. He was a pilot. He was all kinds of things, but he was great. It was true.
Barbara Minerva: [after Diana knocks the drunk man away harassing Barbara] How did you…
Diana Prince: Simple self-defense. Used his own momentum against him. I’ll teach you. Honestly, it takes no power at all.
Barbara Minerva: [wishing to the Dreamstone] I do know what I’d wish for. To be like Diana. Strong. Sexy. Cool. Special.
Maxwell Lord: A pleasure, Miss Minerva.
Barbara Minerva: Oh. It’s “Doctor”, actually. Have we met before? You look familiar.
Carol: Do the thing.
Maxwell Lord: No.
Carol: Do the thing.
Maxwell Lord: [from his TV ad] Life is good, but it can be better.
Barbara Minerva: Oh, my gosh. From TV. Oh, my gosh. You’re the oil guy.
Maxwell Lord: “The oil guy.” I’ll take it.
Barbara Minerva: This is the one and only, Mr. Maxwell Lord. It’s him.
Maxwell Lord: Life is good, but it can be better.
Barbara Minerva: He’s from TV.
Diana Prince: Oh, I don’t have a TV.
Maxwell Lord: Well, I have a great relationship with Sears. I can get you a brand new TV by the end of the day. Nineteen inches. No strings attached.
Diana Prince: I’ll stick to the one I don’t have. But thank you.
Alistair: Where’s the pool, daddy?
Maxwell Lord: It’s not done yet, buddy. But it doesn’t matter. You just have to be patient. I told you the pool, the helicopter, you’ll have it all. But remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day, was it? No.
Alistair: Hasn’t it been a lot of days?
Maxwell Lord: Well, it takes time to become a great, great, number one man, like your dad is going to be.
Simon Stagg: Are you lying to your son, like you lie to everyone else?
Simon Stagg: I should have done some digging on you too, Maxwell Lorenzano. Didn’t take long to find out you’re nothing but a lowlife con man.
Maxwell Lord: I am not a con man! I am a television personality. And a respected businessman with a plan.
Simon Stagg: Come on.
Maxwell Lord: With a great plan.
Simon Stagg: Oh! “If you can dream it, you can have it.” Something like that?
Maxwell Lord: [referring to Simon] I am not a loser. He’s a loser! And don’t you ever believe a word that man said. He’s a liar, and he’s wrong. And he will rue the day he walked away from me. And you. You are going to be so proud to be my son.
Maxwell Lord: You’ll see. Everyone will.
Maxwell Lord: Dr. Minerva. You look breathtaking.
Barbara Minerva: Thank you. You know, we have to go to these sort of things for work a lot, so I’ve probably worn this dress a million times. Actually, no. I just bought this today. I never look like this. Not even close. Took me a long time to get ready.
Maxwell Lord: Biotin. You should try it. Makes you glow like a teenager. Reverses the clock. Never accept the limitations of nature.
Barbara Minerva: Yeah, no.
Maxwell Lord: Especially not a beautiful woman like you.
Handsome Man: Diana. Diana.
Diana Prince: Excuse me. I don’t even know you. So please stop following me.
Handsome Man: I wish we had more time.
Diana Prince: Why did you say that? Don’t say that to me. You don’t even know me.
Handsome Man: Yes, I do.
[he puts his watch in her hand]
Handsome Man: I can save today. But you can save the world.
Diana Prince: [as the handsome man turns into Steve] Steve?
Steve Trevor: Diana.
Diana Prince: But how?
Steve Trevor: I don’t know.
Diana Prince: [she embraces him] Oh, my God. It’s you.
Diana Prince: I missed you.
Diana Prince: So what do you remember?
Steve Trevor: I remember taking the plane up. And then nothing, really. Nothing. But somehow, I know I’ve been someplace since then. Someplace that’s, I can’t really put words to it. But it’s good. And then I woke up here.
Steve Trevor: [referring to waking up in a futon] Well, not comfortable. And really a bit backwards if I’m being really honest with you. I mean, for a futuristic time like this. Nineteen…
Diana Prince: Eighty-four.
Steve Trevor: 1984.
Steve Trevor: [to Diana] Would you like to see my futon?
Steve Trevor: [referring to the apartment] You don’t have to tell me. The place is a mess. Cheese on demand. I spent all morning cleaning his bedroom, but he seems to me to be an engineer. Lots of pictures of himself. Not what I would do, but to each his own.
Diana Prince: Oh, so this is how you found me.
Steve Trevor: Yeah, the phone book. I guess some things are just future-proof.
Diana Prince: So you went to my apartment?
Steve Trevor: [referring to the exercise bike] Yeah, I tried to use the bike at first. I couldn’t really figure out how to get it going, so I ran over and saw you come back. And I was stunned. There you were. So I just followed you, like a creep. Diana, look at you. It’s like not one day has passed.
Diana Prince: I can’t say the same thing about you.
Steve Trevor: [looking at himself in the mirror and seeing the handsome man’s reflection] He’s got it. No, I like him.
Diana Prince: He’s great. But all I see is you.
