I think she's great in the role but I was hoping to see more of Kristen Wiig's character.  surprised they showed Steve Trevor -- would have been a helluva surprise in the theater

It's already been well known Steve will be back anyways so they didn't bother with the suspense.. They did keep fans guessing though how on earth Steve was alive and practically not aged since WW1.

I must live under a rock because I had no idea he was coming back.  bet the blast knocked him into some sort of time warp propelling him to the future.  ::)

I was disappointed by WW84.  It wasnít terrible, but it was too long, and certain plot points seemed overly convenient and unearned.

I agree!! Very disappointed is a understatement..way it started out, I thought it was going to be great but that was it.. I almost turn it off..mostly it was about Maxwell Lord character..

 This movie was more ridiculous than Catwoman. I love BVS UE and MOS. Iím not a big superhero movie guy but I thought they were really well told dramas with action in them. Thatís just more my thing. Wonder Woman I felt was this way as well so I dug it.
  I like some of the marvel movies like the first Iron Man and I see the appeal . From what Iíve seen Marvel I feel is like Jerry Bruvkheimwr movies like The rock, crimson tide.. maybe not as good but that same tone and itís kind of the same formula but they obviously do a great job with the majority of moviegoers really enjoying them. More pirates of the Caribbean swashbuckling humor  thing.
  WW84 tried to take on that tone and maybe they did it duccesssfully, I have t seen enough Marvel flicks to know. But I canít imagine many movies have such a weird incoherent story. Sooo many things that made zero sense. I honestly found it really confusing. I was stuck thinking ď what is this guy suppose to be?Ē I donít get it?Ē There was seriously screwed up immoral things going on from the heroes too that I know it couldnít have been intentional but it is soooo cringey. I was shocked they made this. Does anyone know what I mean by really not appropriate part?

Major disappointment considering how good Wonder Woman was.  Personally I didn't even like the start.  3 days later and there is nothing memorable from it.

Felt both WW movies were okay but feature lackluster endings. I feel it definitely made more for younger audience, feel children would like all the messages and less finalities sort of speak. At certain points it did lack little sense but don't feel kids would care. Good movie considering how little is available in 2020

I liked the flashback in the first three minutes.  It was kind of like the Phantom Menaceís pod race:  good spectacle only tangentially related to the rest of the movie.

This script never should have been approved.  The acting was good, the direction seemed fine for what there was to work with, but it just wasnít a compelling story.

thought WW84 was a bit disappointing.  the Max Lord character/storyline/conclusion was not particularly engrossing or well done IMHO.  They would have been better off reducing the length and focussing more on Cheetah/Kristen Wiig who I found to be much better than expected in that role.  the final resolution was just nonsense.
