I really didn't know what to expect from Aquaman given the sh*tty track record from the DCU (Man of Steel, BvS, Justice League and Suicide Squad) with the lone winner being Wonder Woman. Aquaman has never been a character I cared for. For me it's a huge step down from the likes of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Although I did like the take on the character in Justice League, in spite of a POS film. But can the character carry a 2 hour flick? Yes and no. Now I don't have anything against Jason Momoa at all. He's the only person on screen that matters and actually delivers. My peeve (minor) is the amount of Special FX. Yes, I know, you can't really make an Aquaman flick without it. But it's sensory overload and after awhile, my brain just couldn't take any more of it. It's a mash up of Avatar underwater with a pinch of The Abyss. And then it turns into this sort of Indiana Jones crusade for the King's Trident, which I kinda liked because it was above water. And the ending, sh*t man, they TOTALLY swiped the scene from The Karate Kid Part II. I was totally prepared for Arthur to "honk" Orm's nose. No lie! The movie is fun for the most part if you can get past the mind-numbing amount of CGI. It's certainly better than most of the other DCU flicks....except Wonder Woman which sits on top. But yeah, Aquaman is worth a Rent.
