Over 60 years after she first ventured into man's world, Amazon princess Diana (Gal Gadot) lived a quiet pose as a D.C. researcher ... until she looked into a legendary stone reputed to grant wishes. The artifact let her restore long-lost love Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) to life--but it also turned colorless colleague Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig) into the predatory Cheetah, before falling into the hands of power-mad industrialist Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal).

A waste of time. One of the all time worst movies I’ve seen.

I actually loved this version! Even better than the other movie version. Chris Pine makes an appearance as Steve Austin (the Six Million Dollar Man) when Diana makes an accidental wish on a magical rock and the chemistry between the two is magical as well. It made me miss the old original show, even the ridiculous fashion!

Well, according to early reviews it was supposed to be good. Actually it was a lengthy action flick with nothing much more. Moral of the story/film: be careful what you wish for--you might get it. Corollary: "magic" always comes at a price.

At the end of the movie my husband and I looked at each other bewildered. This movie was HORRIBLE, SUPER boring and almost laughable it was so ridiculous. Such a shock because we both really enjoyed the first one.

Wonder Woman 1984 was a VERY long film, but it was overall enjoyable (I just liked the action). It also had a positive message (that women can do anything!), and the moral of the story was that if you want more/are greedy, there are consequences.
Wonder Woman 1984 is the sequel to the Wonder Woman 2017 film, and the original was better.
In Wonder Woman 1984, Diana Prince is living in 1984 (that's why the movie is called that), and she discovers a stone that grants a wish, but others want it. Diana makes new enemies (Maxwell Lord and the Cheetah), and squares off against them.

There's are two morals to this story: "Never cast Kristen Wiig in an action movie and don't watch this dud"

I did find this movie very enjoyable, although it is definitely a sophomoric effort compared to the first one. The opening scene with Diana on Paradise Island is pretty much only there for the sake of the trailer; it has nothing more than a vague thematic parallel with the rest of the movie, and can be skipped without costing you anything. After that we get some fun 80s romping and character establishment, all of which is pretty good, and then at the halfway point we get to the more actiony stuff, which is even better (as long as you don't mind a lot of "just go with it" nonsense, much of which is only there to pander to geeks and fanboys, and detracts from the movie's success as a story rather than as a Wonder Woman thing). Unfortunately, the film doesn't really stick the landing; the climax attempts to be emotionally resonant, but mostly just comes across seeming confused. So there's a lot of good stuff in this film, but it's still very imperfect. I would rank it as less good than Aquaman, but better than Justice League, both of which are neither excellent nor terrible IMO.

It was fine. At least she learned to fly and is discovering new things she can do

Odd that these three have not been included in IMDb yet:

You cannot be the winner, because you are not ready to win, and there is no shame in that. Only in knowing the truth in your heart and not accepting it. No true hero is born from lies.
===
Look to the Golden Warrior Asteria. She did not become a legend out of haste. She did it through true acts of bravery. Like patience, diligence, and the courage to face the truth. One day, you'll become all that you dream of and more, and everything will be different. This world is not yet ready for all that you will do.
===
Beware what you wish for. It grants your wish, but takes your most valued possession.
