Apparently “Wonder Woman 1984” did not go down well with Twitter users
Twitter users aren’t known for their lack of opinions or for holding their tongues which is why we love spending time there. If you’re looking to find out how other people felt about the new Wonder Woman film that dropped on Christmas Day, Wonder Woman 1984, look no further than the Twitterverse to give you everything you need to know.
WW84 hit theaters and streamed exclusively on HBO Max and many of us looking for something new to watch over the holidays were eagerly awaiting its release. Gal Gadot, DC Comics, and a familiar story of good versus evil seemed like the perfect way to spend a couple of hours. Plus, It’s the first Warner Bros. film to be released on a streaming site the same day as its theater release date at no extra cost to viewers.
Unfortunately, the reviews are out and they are not good.
Wonder Woman 1984 was hot garbage.

Wonder Woman 1984 review:
Too rushed, too gimmicky. Directionless at points. Pedro pascal and Kristen wiig were insane tho. Third act of the movie was good.
my opinion doesn’t matter out of 10

Just saw #WW84… downgrade from the original.. corny story premise, Tripe forced dialog, invisible jet from a coffee cup trick, bad over used CG fights, usage of slow mo & an ending that was suppose to be a heartfelt tug at humanities wants and desires that just played out flat pic.twitter.com/8MgtBDgcu2

Welp, here we go. I thought #WW84 was the worst DCEU film since Justice League. I cannot believe the massive departure from the first, it's truly shocking at how different they both are (in a bad way). The story was a mess and the script completely falls apart. WOW…like wow. pic.twitter.com/AAfx71Cb0A

#WonderWoman1984 was a big waste of time.
Mediocre movie, generic plot, bad script, misuse of characters, and not even a single memorable action sequence.
Absolutely disappointing. #WW84

It’s been over three years since Gal Gadot and Chris Pine played Diana Prince and Steve Trevor. Kristen Wiig also joined the crew as villainess Cheetah, so the cast was not lacking. But from the vast amount of opinions online, the script was lackluster, the special effects were laughable, and plot holes left fans feeling like the whole thing was a big waste of time.

Had to rewatch the last hour of #WW84 because I genuinely fell asleep.
This movie is not good, I’ve never been so bored watching a movie, not since Interstellar 😂
Pedro Pascals character was just annoyingly bad, Cheetah was what I thought she would be… dumb like the plot. pic.twitter.com/FubvMUXYPt

Jill Lepore, who is the author of 2014’s The Secret History of Wonder Woman, wrote in The New Yorker that, “the new film about a female icon ignores her history as a female rebel.” She also said the film’s director should pay more attention to the role women played during the times the films were set. Patty Jenkins … set her first Wonder Woman film during the First World War. And she set this new film in the Orwellian year of 1984. But she’s apparently not at all interested in the history of women: it’s got no place in either of her two Wonder Woman films, even though they both take place during major inflection points in that history, and even though the history of Wonder Woman, the comic book and the character, is inextricably bound up with the long, miserable, and unfinished struggle for women’s political equality.”
Twitter was not as eloquent and we love them for it:
No. I'm not letting this go. pic.twitter.com/Sdw7Zzy3oB

#WonderWoman1984 might have been the dumbest movie I've ever seen. Magic wishes, "renouncing" of wishes, wishing for more wishes, body swapping, unnecessary flying, kids serving as props, bad special effects, 1984 with no 80's music (?), color video on Apple IIe's??? Awful. #WW84

I honestly disliked WW84. Why would you want to depict a strong fierce woman getting her ass kicked the entire movie? Even in the climax, she's cowering in the corner using her superpower of "speaking" to defeat the villain. The plot was so bad. #WW84WatchParty @PattyJenks

Of course, you need to watch it for yourself to decide how you feel about the sequel. Plus, if you shelled out the additional subscription cost for HBO Max, you also now have access to Amy Schumer’s documentary, Expecting Amy which follows her through her pregnancy and is an absolute delight.
Or, you can just take Twitters word for it and find another way to spend two hours of your life.
