Audience Reviews for Aquaman
I liked this popular superhero TV movie based on DC Comics as Justin Hartley was the best choice to play the title role. The special effects are very impressive for the pilot and it does a great job of introducing the characters. It seems that we're going to witness a kind of modern fairytale, involving an exiled prince from the legendary Atlantis, facing evil of his own people. Unnatural behavior, inhuman powers, morphing, and so on are at the rendezvous, deploying a minimum of creativity and imagination that should keep this show tuned, and satisfy the thirst of modern aquatic stories for more than one. Adrianne Palicki, who will appear as the title role of 2011 TV movie, Wonder Woman, was gorgeous and sexy as the villianous Siren in her outfit.
As Aquaman being my favorite superhero, I would love to have a show featuring him. Maybe somebody there will be a an Aquaman show but for now we have to settle for this. I was skeptical at first about an Aquaman show but after watching this pilot I changed my mind about it. Justin Hartley is really good as Orin/Arthur Curry/Aquaman butAlan Ritchson who currently plays him on Smallville is better. Siren is played by the incredibly hot Adrianna Palicki. Lou Diamond Phillips is good as Orin's surrogate father. Ving Rhames plays McCaffrey a fellow Atlantean who is still loyal Orin and his parents. For a pilot it actually has a decent story. It basically deals with Orin's origins and how he came to the surface world. The underwater effects are really good and look as if they spent some money on making them look good. The effects do look better than most of the effects on Smallville. We don't get to see Aquaman's classic costume so there isn't much I can say about costumes.
I was sad to hear this wasn't picked up. CW really missed out on a great opportunity and the pilot set some great things up, but I understand it would have been a little too expensive. Glad Justin came to Smallville.
