The dumb parts of the movie are the best parts of the movie. I wish it had leaned into being more dumb.Full Review

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.Full Review

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

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.Full Review

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

An absolute triumph, Aquaman is a blast to watch start to finish and one of this year's best superhero movies. Bring on the sequel because another Jason Momoa/James Wan team-up is an even more exciting prospect than the Justice League re-assembling!Full Review

This film tries to be super cool, but it just isn't camp enough to be good.Full Review

The movie raises serious environmental issues, and then, rather than engaging with them, it shows us lots of fight scenes.Full Review

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.Full Review
The best dc since dark night rises
Even though it has the same fun and humour as Shazam, Aquaman lacks a good villain and deserves a little more heart.
30 minutes of plot stretched to two hours. The DC equivalent of Black Panther
So-so. Solid action, but a rather insipid plot.
this was a great movie. can't wait for the sequel
Amazing movie recommend so much.
Greeat surprise in this big movie
If you liked Jason Momoa in Justice League, then you'll love him here. This movie although dumb, is just so friggin' fun and beautiful to watch. If you love action, oh you'll have a blast. This was directed by Horror master James Wan, you say ? Well he surely wanted viewers to have fun. LOTS of fun.
Eh, it could have been better. I wasn't pulled into the storyline.
On the back of Jason Momoa's charisma, "Aquaman" has the action, the impressive, super-detailed CGI, and a ridiculous plot like most superhero blockbusters, but what it does differently is that it shows that not all problems need to be solved with violence, and that is refreshing.
