Home is Calling.
An action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman” reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
Review of Aquaman by Eddie @ The Movie Guys
Led by it’s energetic and easy to like leading man, Aquaman has a blast going on an 80’s like quest across the various ocean kingdoms all over the globe and in these simplistic yet creatively designed aspects Wan’s film shines, with it easily becoming the most proficiently made DC film outside of Nolan’s holy Batman trilogy, even if some de-aging CGI at the start of the film and some downright icky training flashbacks make you wish you had closed your eyes and ears for a short time.
Also found within the film are some fun supporting turns with the likes of Wilson, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe and Dolph Lundgren, all having a good time with their respective roles, while Wan and his team take a leaf out of the Guardians of the Galaxy rule-book and embrace their bonkers universe and instill it with a hearty dose of zany humor; selfies with bikies anyone?
Final Say –
A visual feast and a fun offering for those of any age, Aquaman may not be high-brow stuff but this is crowd-pleasing film-making of a high level thanks to Wan’s creative direction and a strong sense if playfulness that outweighs the frequent daftness found within.
