Yeah I watched this recently and enjoyed it, it's just a fun, movie, Momoa is great and the fight scenes are cool. Good to see that DC seem to have found another franchise in the DC universe that has worked along side Wonder Woman.Aquaman
Jason Momoa is Aquaman the true king of the seas. His father an humble fisher man shagged Atlanna (Nicole Kidman) creating all kinds of future troubles under the waves. Aquaman is reluctant to help whatever is happening under the sea, but has reasons when an hot chick turns up. William Dafoe swims about a bit. Black Manta arrives wanting revenge on Aquaman. Patrick Wilson is the big bad guy wanting to rage war on other under the sea peoples so he can then erm rage war on people above the sea for erm having boats and dropping bottles in the ocean. Aquaman and the hot chick Mera (Amber Herd) wander, get chased, fight folk and quip between themselves. At over 2 hours 20 mins the film tries to fit a lot in. It has two maybe three stories that could have been one film. As it is it never lets up, the GGI is stunning right up to the almost end, what is meant to look beautiful looks beautiful, the explosions are chaos are right up with the best you will see at the cinema. On the downside story is mixed and the level of threat from the villains just isn't interesting. I did really enjoy the movie, by far the best we've had from DC. It is entertaining, everything you want from a superhero action movie and Momoa is great in this role. Dolph Lungren should be given his own movie, how fucking cool is that guy? Seriously he is even great as a ginger, makes Momoa look like a bantamweight in every way plus out acts the rest of the cast with ease.
7.5/10 Just below what I'd give a really good movie, but I can see myself watching it again and would watch a sequel.
