Wonder Woman 1984
Threats to all of humanity are the lifeblood of plots in action movies. This time, it's Wonder Woman's turn to save the planet's billions of humans. Instead of Nazis and criminal evil geniuses to fight, she's got to let her golden lasso help her deal with your basic con man Max Lord (Pedro Pascal) and Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig), a woman who's finally able to get a little attention thanks to some powerful ancient objects.
While Wonder Woman is a princess who gets a dream from a wish her heart makes (the return of the dishy Chris Pine), she soon realizes this dream is the thing of nightmares when the deepest, darkest wishes become reality. The hallmarks of a woman's touch are on this fun film, courtesy of director Patty Jenkins. The action sequences are sometimes playful, sometimes intense with a good number of kids Wonder Woman needs to save and the number of prurient body shots of female leads is low. It's not as dark as some other DC comic movie fare, but it's certainly a good addition to the pack.
