Nothing about this movie works. It is way too obvious, it's got cheesy special effects, it feels like a 1980's film with the jokes, and it's trying too hard.

Through it all, Jason Momoa... tosses off coyly bluff one-liners with understated humor that goes to waste in this bloated and sludgy movie.

Veteran cinematographer Don Burgess's widescreen images beguile, and Bill Brzeski's production design impresses mightily, but next time, someone please give Momoa and company some memorable dialogue.

A thoroughly entertaining ride.

But oh, those action sequences: this is what the Tron sequel should have looked and sounded like.

Had this movie arrived as recently as two years ago, it might have been heralded as a higher-end superhero movie. Things have changed, however, in both the DCEU and the MCU.

Somehow, Warner Bros produced an Aquaman movie wilder and more epic than the one Vinnie Chase starred in on "Entourage," and they didn't even need to get James Cameron to do it.

If you are a Momoa or DC comics fan you will be pleased to know that this Aquaman is a quality version and won't disappoint even the most skeptical amongst us.

Aquaman is a stunning spectacle and Jason Momoa is a blast to watch from beginning to end.

Nicole Kidman kills a TV with a trident. Black Manta yells "Call me Black Manta!" Ocean Master yells "Call me Ocean Master!" Aquaman yells "I am Aquaman!" If you take a shot every time someone does a superhero landing, your liver turns into a puffer fish.

Move over, Marvel. CNET's Bonnie Burton explains why the new Aquaman movie made her a DC fan.

This film is everything, but most of all it's a deliberate confection. It's instinctively and immediately silly.
May 18, 2019
The action sequences are just so gleefully bonkers that one can't help but get swept up in it.

If you're willing to surrender to what [James] Wan has created in the depths of his CGI ocean then you're potentially in for a delirious ride of entertaining lunacy.

Aquaman was a film that could have been great, but fell flat. The amazing CGI did not make up for the cheesey jokes and what felt like a dumbed down script.

Splash meets Game of Thrones in this thoroughly entertaining slice of submersible superheroics.

Another lump of coal in the DC Extended Universe stocking. Unnecessarily loud and horribly written.
April 11, 2019
After wallowing in darkness for far too long, DC embraces some relatively lighter fun in its latest superhero adventure, Aquaman.
April 11, 2019
Once in a while, Momoa lets out a gut laugh or barbaric yawp that cements him as that rare thing, a king you want to have a beer with. A king and a fool -- a Falstaff with a six-pack.
April 9, 2019
Aquaman is not a flawlessly constructed film but takes the DCEU in a welcome direction, enthralling with stunning visuals and grounding itself in humanity.
