I was really excited to watch this movie, but I was disappointed a little that it didn't exactly meet up to the hype. The marketing was great, but it failed to deliver what was promised. I feel there weren't as much action in it as I hoped it would be, and most importantly, this movie was inappropriately marketed to young audiences when I feel the movie is not appropriate and suitable for children. It's way too much swearing and suggestive material for younger viewers. There were crude jokes I felt was unnecessary and could have been left out. Story development was very weak and doesn't keep the viewer engaged and interested.

Fun Underwater Adventure Aquaman is big, beautiful, and bold despite a slightly weak story.

Gloriously over-the-top and corny, Aquaman breathes new life into the DC Cinematic Universe with its high-energy and beautifully shot action, gorgeous visuals, charismatic performances by Jason Momoa and Amber Heard, and a beating heart at the center of all the noise and CGI. James Wan directs the living hell out of Aquaman and manages to deliver the most exciting (and funniest and most ridiculous -- the sight of people riding sharks and giant sea horses had me in tears) DC film in quite some time.

Whereas many of the previous DCEU films tried too hard to be dark and edgy - to their detriment as far as I'm concerned, James Wan turns Aquaman into a frantic, fun free-for-all, and the film is better for it. The film is visually stunning, even if it goes for over-the-top craziness a lot of the time.
The film wastes no time in setting up the story, showing how a young Arthur Curry came to be when a lighthouse keeper (Temuera Morrison) finds a Queen of Atlantis, Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), washed up during a fierce storm. Despite their much different worlds, the two find love - though this is short-lived as she is forced to return to Atlantis - and her arranged marriage - after a few short years in the world of man.
Jump forward and Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa - giving it his all) is a …

Much like 2017s Wonder Woman, James Wan’s Aquaman is an entertaining look at another of DC’s titans, demonstrating that even if the team-up films continue to struggle to find their feet, the more personal tales can still highlight why these characters are immortalised in pop culture.
The story is pretty much what we have come to expect of superhero origin films for now. Nolan did it before Marvel and they’ve been killing it for 10 years since, so it would’ve been hard to reinvent that wheel, so i’ll quickly get to the point. Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry who we already saw kick some serious ass in Justice League must go on a quest to become the true king of Atlantis. On the way there are a variety of forces that are trying to stop him, yadda yadda, exposition, …

AQUAMAN is one of the strangest superhero movies ever made and it is also one hell of a crowd pleasing popcorn flick. It sucessfully combines action, adventure, fantasy, romance, and even horror in spectacular fashion!
Director James Wan (The Conjuring; Furious 7) handles the gargantuan scale with gusto, unafraid to embrace the absolute absurdity that comes with a superhero that can talk to fish. Atlantis is a glistening metropolis of aquatic creatures, skyscrapers made of lava and coral, and technology that would feel at home in a Star Wars movie. Aquaman battles sea monsters that look like the offspring of the Xenomorph while underwater gladiators ride atop giant seahorses, laser equipped sharks, or even draconic leviathans.
The movie looks HUGE and the action scenes are …
