Aquaman (2018) – Movie Review

Aquaman is an action-adventure superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. The film is directed by James Wan, and it is the sixth film in the DCEU.

It is the third film featuring Jason Momoa as Aquaman, following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017) in DCEU. The film starts in 1985, lighthouse keeper Thomas Curry (Temuera Morrison) rescues Atlanna (Nicole Kidman), the princess of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, during a storm. They eventually fall in love and have a son named Arthur (Jason Momoa). The film follows the character of Aquaman, Arthur Curry, after the events of Justice League, when his half-brother, Orm (Patrick Wilson) declares war against the surface world. Now Arthur must challenge and claim his rightful throne of Atlantis to save both of the worlds.

Like the Wonder Woman (2017), this film also has a solid origin story of Aquaman, where we can clearly see the motivation for the places he goes and things he does. The beautifully shot action sequences are the heart of this film, and all the credit goes to the director James Wan. All the imagery is aesthetically soothing, the visual effects are top-notch, and the movie watching experience in IMAX is just incomparable. The performances by all the characters are apt, in particular, Amber Heard as Mera and Jason Momoa as Aquaman are best. The addition of the subplot of the story of Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) complements the main plot and makes the film even more enjoyable.

Verdict : A pretty enjoyable standalone superhero film by DCEU, definitely worth a watch.

Rating : 4/5
