I loved the first Wonder Woman movie. This one, however, seemed rather cumbersome and awkward. The biggest problem is the way they brought back Chris Pine / Steve Trevor was, frankly, wrong. It was a poor plot device that takes away from the whole movie and feels wrong on every level. As for Gal Gadot/Wonder Woman, she truly embodies the character and her chemistry with Pine is still strong but kind of wasted on this otherwise decent movie. Finally, the ending seemed rather trite, stupid and almost predictable. It kind of makes a mockery of everything that went on before, much like the way the Dallas tv series brought back Bobby Ewing and basically destroyed the previous season. I would like to think there are more creative minds in Hollywood than this but they were not on this movie. Don't get me wrong, it is watchable. But the 'wonder' in Wonder Woman is clearly missing for me. Hopefully, with better writers, Warner Brothers can turn this franchise around in the 3rd movie and bring back the magic of the first.
