After undergoing multiple release date changes, Wonder Woman 1984 is here for the whole world to see—and we have first reactions from lucky viewers who were already able to catch it!

The DC sequel, which brings back Gal Gadot as the Princess Diana of Themyscira, puts our titular heroine in the ‘80s, where she is squared off with Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and the powerful Cheetah (Kristen Wiig).

IGN writer Terri Schwartz tweeted that she “adored it. The first Wonder Woman is my favorite of the modern DC films, and WW84 makes all the smart next steps, telling a very human and very beautiful story for Diana Prince.”

Hoai-Tran Bui of Slash Film added, “Wonder Woman 1984 is — forgive the term — wonderful. It doubles down on the compassion and cheese that made the first so great, as well as its tenacious belief in the best of humanity. A magical, sorely needed beacon of hope in this year.”

Io9’s Germain Lussier exclaimed the movie’s message of hope as something that we need during this challenging period, “The movie is hugely ambitious, incredibly exciting, and full of much-needed hope. It reminded me how wonderful a big blockbuster can make you feel.”

About Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins, ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis noted that she “literally made an 80s movie in every way, making it so unique for today. It feels both bigger than the first WW while simultaneously more contained. Lots of Diana Prince and some epic Wonder Woman moments as Gal Gadot soars!”

Perri Nemiroff of Collider revealed that although the first one still trumps as the better movie, the sequel’s “value of selflessness, love, and compassion do shine through.”

Collider’s other film reviewer Steven Weintraub said that the big screen is still the way to go when seeing Wonder Woman 1984, “no matter what system you have at home, nothing will ever replace the magic of seeing a movie on a huge IMAX screen.”

Finally, Fandango’s Erik Davis raved the film for being “an absolute blast from start to finish” and “one of DC’s best sequels,” adding, “I was in tears when it ended.”

Wonder Woman 1984 can be seen in Southeast Asian cinemas and HBO Max starting December 25, 2020.
