I had a lot of fun watching this. I liked it better than the first film for its color, sensibility & the lead villain played by Pascal(the villain in the first film was weak & especially so in the 3rd act).NEGATIVES: 1.Gal Gadot cannot act & delivers all lines with the biggest grinned smile on her face like a little kid or a model(which is what she is) looking for approval...despite what emotion the line actually calls for or she burns a hole through max lord’s head when first meeting him for no reason whatsoever. 2. Patty Jenkins cannot write for her life. 3. Toxic feminism rears its head to make every male character from the cops to the extras a cardboard cliche of evil men because they were born males to begin with. It grows old fast.

Mark’s review published on Letterboxd:
I need to think more about this "hot mess" of a movie. I worry that I'm a victim of expectations.
Special Effects: So-so
One thing is for sure, I don't think there is anyone better for the part than Gal Gadot.
