Thick body padding helps make Viola Davis all but unrecognizable as Ma fumes and fulminates. Boseman, meanwhile, is practically swimming in Levee’s suit, his body gaunt from the cancer that took him just months after filming finished. But his eyes flash, and his speeches burn. No character he’s played has ever been more heartbreakingly alive, whether brimming with excitement or seething with rage.

Wonder Woman 1984” is “a fun, but messy follow-up to the Amazonian superhero’s 2017 re-introduction,” Esther Zuckerman, wrote in her review of the film for Thrillist. “There’s a lot to love in “WW84″: bold performances from a delightful cast, fantastic costumes, [Patty] Jenkins’ fast-paced direction. But it’s in service of a plot that loses sight of what makes the character so great in the first place.”

Pascal infuses some of the charm we saw in his Game of Thrones character Oberyn Martell into the greasy Lord, making him a nuanced baddy with sharp retro suits. We never lose sight of his emotional turmoil, even if there are also some distracting logical leaps when it comes to the powers he gains (though these leaps are ultimately excusable, since they’re magic).

Zuckerman noted that the filmmakers were in a tough spot to repeat the success of the first film. After all, so much of it focused on Diana’s naivete and her wonder in discovering a whole new world.
