The best way to define it is like "the Schr÷dinger movie": a film that is at the same time between the best and the worst. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

It's a straightforward and pretty undemanding plot, stretched unnecessarily over two hours and 23 minutes, and the only depth the film has is the ocean.

Aquaman has to rely on its visual wonder, as the script is rather rough-shod with some of the worst dialogue I can remember from these capes and tights exercises

Too much going on; too little of it matters.
January 3, 2019
Aquaman's script is plodding and lacking the emotional weight or character development it needs to draw the viewer in
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
December 18, 2018
Released fifteen years ago, this flick would have been a good enough romp to pass the time. Now, however, with the advent of so many incredible superhero ventures, Aquaman just feels stagnant.
December 21, 2018
CGI action fans will be awestruck by the special effects which dominate Aquaman, a must-see in 3-D.
December 26, 2018
Any excitement audiences expected from director James Wan, who has helped reinvigorate the horror genre with The Conjuring series, will wonder if perhaps his success is limited to blood baths and jump scares.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

There are no answers, because none are deemed necessary.
December 11, 2018
I won't front like I didn't enjoy some elements of the film, but as a whole? It felt like I was watching a film based on what worked in a number of superhero flicks over the last few years.
January 25, 2019
It's certainly more entertaining and competent than most of the previous DCEU films but that makes its silly missteps and bloated plot all the more frustrating.

December 23, 2018
Take one clichÚ from every comic book movie of the past decade, put them in a blender, then throw that blender into the ocean. Boom. You've got yourself an Aquaman movie.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
December 31, 2018
Aquaman is far too long, constantly undercutting its charm in service to derivative action sequences that lose all appeal by the third act.
December 20, 2018
The periodic bursts of creativity and weirdness can't fully hide the fact that this superhero epic doesn't offer anything new. It's mostly fun, but could have been way better.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 21, 2018
While its stunning visuals and underwater combat make it a vast improvement over many of the other DCEU films, an overcrowded story and campy dialogue make it far more exhausting than exciting.

January 10, 2019
With big battles and complex lore, it clearly wants to be an underwater Lord of the Rings, but instead ends up closer to Phantom Menace territory, with some tonally incoherent splashes of Fast and Furious.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 11, 2018
[Aquaman] wasn't for me, but I admire a lot about this movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.3/10
December 14, 2018
Aquaman is simply too over-stuffed and over-long.
December 21, 2018
With the world the way it's going, it's not surprising people would rather watch a buffed guy swim with dolphins. But with so many resources spent on it, this is one underwater adventure that dries out fast.
January 7, 2019
There were some cringe-worthy acting moments in this movie...that's due to the script more so than the actors themselves.
