WONDER Woman 1984’s CGI for Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah is “worse than Cats” according to furious fans who have been highly anticipating the blockbuster’s sequel.
The follow-up to the 2017 DC superhero flick starring Gal Gadot was released on Christmas Day in limited theaters and on HBO Max due to pandemic restrictions.
Due to the global success of the first film, the Patty Jenkins-directed franchise has been long awaited by fans.
The movie also received buzz before its release due to the beloved comic book character’s introduction into the live DC universe.
Wonder Woman follows Gal Gadot’s character, Diana Prince, as she comes into her full powers during the 1980’s.
She is forced to face off again villains Maxwell Lord and the Cheetah – who possesses superhuman strength and agility with a cat-like appearance.
The super villainess also appears in the film as her archaeologist alter ego, Barbara Minerva.
After she popped up on screens late into the two-hour action film, Cheetah and Wonder Woman’s climax comes with an explosive fight scene.
While the film’s general special effects have been praised as “beautiful,” early viewers of the blockbuster slammed the CGI for Cheetah – with many comparing it to the disastrous 2019 Cats movie.
“Holy crap, Cheetah’s CGI in WW84 looks baaaaaad. Like Cats 2019 bad,” one person tweeted.
Another fired off: “Also Cheetah looked bloody terrible. if we can make a whole ass suit for gadot aint no damn reason why cgi cat lady was the go to.”
“The CGI for the cheetah in Wonder Woman is so bad lmaooo,” one more insisted.
A fourth asked: “They use the crew from Cats to do the CGI for Cheetah?”
“Cheetah CGI and Wonderwoman running around tanks were visually horrible. And I have no idea why they kept bouncing her around with her lasso like a cat toy, lazy choreography,” a livid viewer tweeted.
However, both Gal and Kristen were praised for their acting chops, as well as supporting actors Chris Pine who plays Steve Trevor and Pedro Pascal who rocked the role of Maxwell Lord.
After years of buzz, Tom Hooper’s Cats movie was universally panned by both critics and audiences for it’s “incredibly bad” special effects.
The buzz for the bad technical job became so bad, it’s been widely mocked online, at award shows, in movies and other forms of media in the months since.
It also caused the film’s commercial performance to tank – losing hundreds of millions of dollars and causing the cast to bash their own film.
Wonder Woman 1984 is now playing in select open theaters and is available to stream on HBO Max.
