I had a great time with this. It is perhaps a little too long, but I thought the pacing and story were completely fine. Momoa is a lot of fun and the supporting cast is completely solid. James Wan movies always have great visual effects and costuming, so that was all done quite well in my opinion. It's clearly made to feel like a cheesy, ludicrous 80s action movie, but how else are you going to do a good Aquaman movie? Great fighting, action, and villain motivations really helped too.

DC has a bad track record thus far, so following up Batfleck with an Israeli Wonder Woman, and then the most ridiculed superhero in the cosmos sounds like bad decision after bad decision. But Momo seems like the first great casting choice they've made, he's a manly man in the role of the sissiest comic book hero, counterbalancing my feelings of emasculation by simply purchasing the ticket. Let Momo's Aquaman be a symbol for all male nurses and flight attendants, "We are men too!"

Well developed story with villains that have clear motivations for their actions all wrapped up with phenomenal visual and fight sequences. Also, very well sets up the story and villain motivations for future installments. Big expectations from potential sequels. Third act easilly tops Wonder Woman and Black Panther, both with visual and fighting scenes.

The most consistently entertaining of the recent DC movies. Filled with well directed and clearly shot action and fight scenes with standout sequences in the Trench and Sicily that are exceptional. Plenty of stilted overly expositional dialogue along with too many jokes that don't land. Lots of colourful visual effects and bizarre creature designs but by the end the sheer amount of CGI feels overwhelming. Mamoa has fun as Aquaman with the swagger of a rock star performing at a sell-out concert.

If you're tired of complaining about comic-book cliches, poses, and three-point landings, and can simply accept the superhero cheese, then you have a good chance at liking Aquaman. I always thought Aquaman was kind of dumb, but this film made talking to fishes cool. And he did wear a shirt sometimes. There were groan moments, of course, like when the super-urgent-stopping-the-battle dialogue had to pause for the smooching while people die in the background. But then there's Dolph Lundgren.

I finally figured out the difference between the MCU and DCEU: the MCU is comic books that sound like humans, and the DCEU is humans who sound like comic books. The style is hard enough as it is, but harder when it stars toddler Thor in some deformed bastard child of 20,000 Leagues Under the Lord of the Rings and Tron. Currently third best DCEU movie. Bronze medal.

Come hell or high water, I was gonna make it to this movie, coz I knew it was gonna blow all the others out of the water. But with all the work I had, I was dead in the water, so I made up a lame excuse to leave early but it did not hold water. With my boss pouring cold water on my plans, I felt like a fish out of water. Somehow I managed to slip out but I think he's onto me, and I'll be in hot water when he finds out. Looking forward to the future when this will all be water under the bridge.

Wow. I hate most of the post-Nolan DC, but this one worked for me way better than it had any right to. James Wan took this silly franchise (usually taking itself too seriously), with its lack of creativity and uninspired overload of CGI, and made it just a beautiful fun ride. With an ancient octopus playing drums!

The cinematic definition of "all flash, no substance." It plays out like a videogame, a myriad of quests piling up on top of one another, one boss to conquer after the other. All the while littered with cliches, tropes, and cheesy, eye-rolling dialogue. It's saturated stylishness does help paint the idea of epic grandiose, however surface level it feels. The visuals do make it the strongest entry of the DC universe; but I'm not sure that's saying much. Momoa tries his best to carry a poor script

From the moment Aquaman shrugged off a grenade-launcher blast to the face with a mere 'Ouch' the movie lost all tension (who fires those things in close quarters on navy ships anyway?!?). Simply no real threat to the main character, and I had no interest in seeing anyone succeed because I couldn't relate to anyone. And then they played a DJ Pitbull song that sampled Toto's Africa unironically, AND I GOT SO ANGRY.

One of the biggest cinematic double downs in recent memory, taking the brooding, desaturated SnyderVerse reimagined AquaBro and going "Oh, Fuck No" deep diving head first into the most outrageous, colorfull and completely over-the-top high fantasy tale - and doing so completly unironically. It's by no means high art, but it's wonderful dumb fun and occasionally goddamn beautiful to look at.

Another subpar DC performance. Momoa is perfect for the role, yet still we have a bland by the books story with a lackluster baddie. Also some of the costume and choreography makes it seem like an overproduced Power Rangers episode. This universe is basically dead.

Aquaman is a lot of fun and it is does not take itself seriously whatsoever. Tonally this is such a shift for DC but it works and James Wan does a fine job of bringing this colourful and vibrant world to life. Jason Mamoa brings so much charisma and energy to a role that he is perfect for and the supporting cast is solid. It is too long, there is some awful dialogue and the constant CGI can be overwhelming. But there are so many thoroughly enjoyable set pieces throughout and I welcome a sequel.

Jason Momoa has an undeniable alpha swagger that I can appreciate and there is some cool moments and mythology in the film, and an ending I mostly found satisfying. There’s also a CRAAAZY overload of action in it, like, holy shit, every three minutes another blast of fighting and chasing and battles and explosions and CGI. It became numbing after a while, like I was watching a film made for the ADHD afflicted. I feel like I don’t need to see another action scene for like six months now.

It has an octopus playing drums, and Dolph Lundgren is in there, but I'm making this sound so much better than it actually is. Man, at this point I'm just so tired of superheroes that I can't for the life of me understand why I don't just part ways with the sub-genre altogether. Hey, 'The Boys' and 'Watchmen' look good... I should check those two shows out, and *then* I'm making a clean break.

This movie is so full of Hollywood CGI nonsense that it becomes incredibly tedious. A good example of how bad things get where there are too many writers and too many animators on a project. Almost every single aspect of it was ruined by overblown, overdone graphics and hyper-velocity animations. Some of the concepts could have been good, but the execution of this is just awful. Logic holes galore and far too much roll-your-eyes nonsense. Amber Heard was awesome. Extra points for the acting.

Do you like movies? Good. But, do you like the MOST movie? Yeah it's this. There are like 40 different locations, eye lasers, Avatar colors, 10 million dollars spent on wavy hair CGI, Nicole Kidman trident-fucking storm troopers, and a Sigur Ros needle drop. The script is awful but all extra stuff' makes for a decent two hour romp. Oh, it's almost 2.5 hours? Christ...

The visuals were something else. This movie was so beautiful, it made up for the dull parts of the plot. And actually, the plot was pretty decent for a movie I didn't care about in the first place, made me care about the character and that's good enough. However, the pacing of the movie was plain weird at times, and some things just stick out as weird, like that random Pitbull cover of Africa or that random octopus playing drums for some reason.

If not for the blizzards of up-to-date CGI, everything else about this - esp the script, dialogue & acting by the 2 leads - feels like a superhero film of the past - the kind created when "comic book movie" still meant alot of dopeyness & camp. The pacing is quick, but it still feels long esp when the 2 leads start bantering in egregiously cliched & eye-rolling ways. It's the kind of movie where the hero LITERALLY lies back w/out a care after nearly dying & knowing his world is still in danger

There’s an octopus playing a bunch of bongos, the king of Atlantis is called the “Ocean Master”, and Julie Andrews plays a racist kraken so why almost every actor is playing this like it’s their most serious role ever I have no idea. Aquaman can’t be that badass if he needs a magic fork just to avoid being beaten up by Nite Owl from Watchmen.

My PSI nailed this one, in so much as, I know I don't like this as much as Wonder Woman, and I realize the ways that this narrative is flawed and kind of hackneyed, but, I still had an undeniable bunch of fun with Jason Momoa yucking it up. I'm sure that will get old someday, but that day ain't today. Visually this flick gets an A+ -- it's shot well, the CGI looks great (difficult to do with water), and ultimately the movie gave me exactly what I went in there looking for: entertainment.

James Wan's "Aquaman" is, if nothing else, deeply ambitious. There's an admirable charm to the world and characters he creates, with visuals that prove beyond stunning and set pieces that, for the most part, truly shine. What the might of Atlantis can't overcome, however, is a script consisting of paper-thin motivations and shamelessly awful dialogue, saved only by its passionate, straight-faced delivery. A kaleidoscopic diversion, and a good-natured one at that, but lacking depth.

(Rewatch: it's stupid but not as bad as it could've been.) The whole idea of Aquaman is absurd. That said, the creators asked themselves what if? Aquaman is easily the most ambitious DCEU film to date, especially compared to the earlier mediocre showings. Great decision to pair him with an equal partner. Underwater scenes look either cluttered or bad while boat scenes don't even resemble reality. Fav scene: the entire Italian battle from the rooftop chase to the defeat of Manta.

Overlong, leaden superhero movie is at least well performed by its eclectic cast, and Wan does indulge in some clever ideas (bonus points for the casting of Andrews as sinister henchwoman). It can't overcome the basic problem that Aquaman is such a dull and uninteresting character, with such limited, specialised powers, that his reason for being really remains elusive. A bit of a soggy, water-logged mess.

It picked up a little around the middle, but overall, flat as a pancake, essentially lame humor if at all, unimaginative & formulaic. Casting was way off except for Momoa and maybe Amber Heard. It's an appropriate setting for the genre to jump the shark, what with Marvel going to the well way too often. Recipe for a clean break: Finish the Avengers and then cut everybody off but Guardians of the Galaxy, which doesn't take itself soooo serioussssly.

Despite a mediocre script and a middling plot, I enjoyed Aquaman - more than I did Wonder Woman - simply for its exuberant spectacle. Momoa is Aquaman, carrying this film on his shoulders. Wan's direction works well, making a movie heavily focused on action scenes engaging with his pan-and-cut technique. The plot is alright, though it flows like video-game quests. The "epic battle" finale is also a tad generic as if hastily written. RGW's score is good and works magic to give each scene emotion.

Go back in time and describe the movie to anyone and they would laugh at you. Literally, just the fact that an Aquaman movie exists is ridiculous. Every time they're underwater, there is a weird shimmering visual effect and an echo over all dialogue. We get it. They're underwater. And yet, Atlantis looks like Coruscant instead of merpeopletown. Also, the idea of a movie where Nicole Kidman AND Dolph Lundgren are side characters is ludicrous. But the movie is somehow fun. Fucking weird, but fun.

This is actually almost like a video game. It is pretty cliche, pretty straight forward story arch, and a lot of CGI. The movie is self aware, which is nice for DC, but I there are a lot of bizarre sequences that kinda just don't make sense, and it felt like every time it was bulding towards something story driven, action sequences come literally out of nowhere and detract from it. James Wan is a great director, and he made a entertaining movie, but coherently good might be a stretch.

I have loved the source material and character Aquaman since I was a swimmer as a young boy. I love the water, A superhero character whose world is underwater could offer the level of new & interesting story-building material that fantasy space epics have due to the nature of making the environment 'believable' alone. I had hope when Momoa was announced but that was ripped away during justice league. Expectations were muted, and still found it overwhelmingly cliche, predictable, and stereotyped.

The first half, to be quite honest, didn't do much for me. I felt that parts of Arthur's backstory scenes were cheesy, Mera's introduction was sloppy, the entire beginning leading up to the big "incident" was very rushed, and the whole thing just felt a bit off. But, it picked up eventually once Arthur & Mera started their quest. Still not amazing, but it's solid for what it's trying to be- an effects-heavy, action heavy origin story. Plus, the cast does a great job, particularly Heard & Momoa.

Aquaman is caught between two worlds.

Fun, lots of action. Does get bogged down in exposition dumps, but better than the dour DC films that preceded it. Aquaman's many tasks reminded me of Hercules' labours. James Wan's horror background shone in the scene on the boat with the fishmen, which tied into the Lovecraft shoutout at the beginning. They threw so many creatures at the screen and so many huge battles that I'm not sure what they could do in a sequel?

It was visually pleasing but the core of Aquaman is making us believe in the heart of the sea and it succeeds in doing that thanks to Jason Momoa and Amber Heard. Arthur and Mera and how they grow together through out the film is the reason this film has a heart to begin with. Among that story are characters and lore that is given the proper motive and design to help guide the film to the most ambitious action sequences so far in the DCEU. The end result is the first complete package product.

Obviously most marvel beats anything DC has to offer....but this movie is actually kind of amazing.

Its pretty overwhelming and on top of that, to try and worldbuild from the ocean floor up and make it somehow all make reasonable enough sense is pretty crazy to do in one movie.

aquaman's apparent shunning of the DCEU works in its favor, but still, it's a very run of the mill affair. A lot of the charm comes from Momoa's charisma, but his efforts don't negate the fact that this movie has a meandering hodge-podge of a story that borrows heavily from other similar movies. a step up from the justice league, somewhat worse than wonder woman, aquaman unfortunately wallows in tepid waters.

If you ever see me about to watch another DC or marvel flick you have my permission to shoot me. Yes, Aquaman looks beautiful, if has some good actors in it, but that is it; it is complete dross. Whilst it started out reasonably, the story arc just became more and more ridiculous, with the whole sea bed resembled the battle scenes from Starship Troopers, the bottom of the ocean fully lit somehow, and Nicole Kidman not aging at all despite no skin care products. Have I said it is complete dross?

Aquaman is a'ight. Production design is good. Costume design is great. Per an apparent Snyderverse mandate there is tonal dissonance and although the big fight set pieces continue to be huge, visually impressive, and frenetic they still manage to be the least engaging parts of the whole thing. I dunno man — it's the second best DCEU movie, I guess, but that doesn't really mean much. It's fine. It's forgettable but it's big and loud and pretty and will make you laugh a couple of times.

The best thing about this movie is that you would think that 'aquaman' would suck as a hero (look how nerdy he looks as a comic book character + what kind of lame skills he has). But then Jason Momoa makes the character super awesome :D

The perfect visual show and a huge CG work. But the scenario for 012 Benetton.

My expectations were so low that i sorta liked it for what it was. It was a paint by numbers action hero movie. Music told me when to feel excited or filled with wonder. Jason mamoa is still playing Ronan from Stargate Atlantis.

A little long, a lot formulaic, humans who won't die, a tiresome epic battle, weird logic and transitions (how the hell did you get out of the Sahara?), characters breathing air that shouldn't be able to breathe air, too little of an otherwise excellent back story, total cheese. Best DC movie so far. Turn off your brain for two hours and go see it!

* I don't think there's a single frame without CGI. This might be one of the most comic booky comic book film I've ever seen. Very cliché and and unsurprising, hero rhetoric, people being alive and so much big emotion floating all around. Makes a lot of sense in comic books, not much on film. But still one of the best in recent DC efforts. I did have fun.

Jason Momoa? Check Mosasaurs? Check Stupid plot and dialog? Check Falling in love with Jason Momoa (again)? Check

You will never be Ocean Master! This movie is a lot of fun, but there are a lot of times that I laughed when I know I wasn't supposed to. It's a very cool movie with lots of cool creatures and fish people. There are also dinosaurs and crab people. I wish there were more movies like this that just brought you into a crazy world and let you enjoy the ride.

This was pretty and whimsical and all the capes looked beautiful fluttering underwater, but the script was kinda trash and cliche and I feel like it had a good story buried in there, but they would have had to not service the fans Black Manta-wise and just make it leaner. *Plus, I used to like Momoa but I have an irrational loathing for him after finding out he ripped out pages of Amber Heard's books on set. Don't @me.

Very predictable and far too many fight scenes for my taste - but visually pleasing and a likeable hero.
