Wonder Woman 1984 review: Gal Gadot’s sunny sequel stuns with THRILLING action set pieces | Films | Entertainment

Yes, Wonder Woman 1984 is set in the mid-1980s with all its garish camp fashion and laissez-faire capitalism amid the Cold War.

The un-ageing Amazon warrior finds herself facing two DC villains in Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord and Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah, while Chris Pine’s WW1 soldier is somehow back from the dead.

Without going into spoilers, there is some ancient magic at work once again and it’s Diana Prince’s mission to save the world.

Without a doubt, the biggest stand-out in the superhero sequel is the exceptionally directed action set-pieces from Patty Jenkins.

Wonder Woman 1984 blasts off brilliantly with a thrilling flashback race in Themyscira from back when Diana was still a little girl.
