Aquaman Reviews

December 31, 2018
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.

The bright spots (Momoa, that octopus) can be difficult to really relish amid the oceans of exposition and a typically pulverizing, overelaborate screenplay.

In making the first DC superhero film in a long time to aspire to anything like levity, Wan finds a way to catalyze what might have been yet another dust-dry origin story.

Aquaman isn't all dumb fighting and arguing among sea-guys. The movie's biggest selling points are its affable, bear-hug spirit and its lavish, loopy visuals.

There are parts of Aquaman that are so wonderfully strange that it's astonishing to see them in a franchise blockbuster.

Even graced with the charming company of Momoa and Nicole Kidman, who is having a blast playing his high-kicking, otherworldly mother, the timing and tone of this movie is consistently off.
