AQUAMAN MOVIE REVIEW
Aquaman is directed by James Wan and stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Nicole Kidman. The plot of the movie is Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and be a hero to the world. This for me was a very average film. It isn't horrible there is good stuff in it, but I won't remember it in a few days. I think Jason Momoa is fantastic in this role. He has that heroic intimidating physical presence, but also he has a lot of charm to him. You understand why this character is reluctant to be the true king of Atlantis. Amber Heard is great in this movie her character Mera is so badass she has a lot of great action scenes. The visuals are amazing there is an underwater chase scene about an hour into the movie that is just beautiful to look at. The rest of the cast I thought did a decent job I didn't really care about any of them, but at the same time, they weren't completely useless. There are some speeches that are given that are just awful. There is very little fun to be had with this movie. The big climactic action sequence at the end I had a blast with, but leading up to it I wasn't that hooked by the story. 3 out of 5 stars for Aquaman. I hope you enjoyed my review.
