Movie Info

Once home to the most advanced civilization on Earth, the city of Atlantis is now an underwater kingdom ruled by the power-hungry King Orm. With a vast army at his disposal, Orm plans to conquer the remaining oceanic people -- and then the surface world. Standing in his way is Aquaman, Orm's half-human, half-Atlantean brother and true heir to the throne. With help from royal counselor Vulko, Aquaman must retrieve the legendary Trident of Atlan and embrace his destiny as protector of the deep.

Audience Reviews for Aquaman

    James Wan's Aquaman is decent popcorn fun that is seriously elevated by Jason Momoa's charismatic brute of a superhero. There's a scene where a bunch of sea-faring crusty bar flies want a selfie with him and he's initially snobbish and unenthused, but then a series of snapshots (similar to The Hangover end credit scenes) show him getting wasted with those same bunch of guys. The dude is a handsome hunk of a human being, but I totally see him actually doing that in real life. The effects vary in quality and the underwater dialogue scenes are cringeworthy, but there's a vibrancy to everything that makes those scenes less noticeable. And the fact that they pretty much double down on the absurdity and campiness of the whole Atlantean mythology and its subsequent characters makes the movie as a whole easier to digest. Case in point: Patrick Wilson as Orm: "Call me... Ocean Master." At this point Gal Gadot and Jason Mamoa are the most charismatic and interesting characters in the DCEU so we need a cross-over movie made ASAP. And get Taika Waititi to direct.

    Loud dumb fun and the movie knows it.

    Sure, this is no smart or particularly clever film. But you gotta admire how it embraces its comic origins, tacky costumes with colorful oversized helmets, octopuses playing drums, Dolph Lundgren with pink hair, armored sea horses and all. Thankfully it doesn't take itself too seriously and has a pretty charismatic leading man who takes the film through a few silly scenes too. But you can't say you've seen most of this ever before, there are just so many locations, creatures, designs, concepts. It's no short movie by any means, but it's fun from beginning to end. Megalomania done right.

    DC makes a hard turn toward the fantastical with James Wan's Aquaman. When King Orm attempts to unite the kingdoms of Atlantis to attack the surface world Princess Mera seeks out the help of Arthur Curry, the king's half-brother, to stop Orm's coming war. Starring Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren, and Nicole Kidman, the film has an impressive cast. And, the special effects are pretty good; featuring a lot of interesting set and creature designs, creating a fascinating new world within the DC Universe. However, the plot is formulaic and the Atlantis mythology is rather bizarre. Still, despite some problems, Aquaman is an incredibly fun and entertaining action film.
