Wow, just, wow. I don't expect much from superhero movies, but this was unwatchable and confusing. And I was a little stoned. It felt like being trapped in a video game. A lot of good actors try hard to act with the green screen. On the plus side, haven't you always wanted to see Willem Defoe underwater and sporting a bun?

I really wanted to like this movie. It could have been great but was let down by a weak script and some so-so acting. Momoa definitely looked the part but about 90% of his lines were wisecracks you might hear from the mouth of an adolescent boy. The relationship between his parents was the most heartfelt aspect of the movie and with such an origin story, Aquaman's constant wisecracks don't seem to suit the character and what he's gone/going through. I really appreciate that they were trying to bring more levity to the film, but I just didn't enjoy the way they did it. It was hard to connect to him as a person, though his abilities were awesome and fun to watch. The villains really felt terrible; Black Manta was dealt a very bad hand...he was given nothing to work with and was incredibly weak as a result. I enjoyed the final act even though I tend to find the final "battle scene" act in superhero movies the weakest...it was really the only part of the movie that felt like it lived up to the hype. This movie had incredible potential, but I felt like it missed the mark too many times to ever give it a re-watch.

I wasn't an Aquaman fan but after this movie, I am. It's a fun, fun, fun movie and very well made: directing, performance, special effects, everything. Completely enjoyable from beginning to end. Aquaman was a little too casual for me in some spots, but still great.

Lots of fun and adventure in this DC film. Although the resemblence between Mera and Ariel may trigger some eye-rolling, overall this is a great adventure on the seas... or under them, to be more accurate. Set aside your expecations of realism, and you'll have a very enjoyable two hours! One of the best aspects of the film is Jason Mamoa, who brings a levity that DC movies often neglect.

Another great DC movie. I loved the action, the vibrant scenery, the actors, the plot. Everything was intense and captivating. Amazing!

Ready for Aquaman II. Yeah, it must have been hard recreating Atlantis, a whole city underwater. The outfits reminded me of an old Flash Gordon serial. Lots of thrills with sea creatures.

Had to watch it twice before I decided that it was an okay movie. Maybe I would have liked it more had I seen it in 3D. Special effects was awesome. Just couldn't get into Jason's role as Arthur Curry.

"Overall, I enjoyed Aquaman a bit more than I thought I would. I liked all the characters enough and the acting was fine across the board. This is a usual hero story where he needs to complete the prophecy in order to do the thing that needs to be done, even though he doesn’t want to. Ya know, that story..."

As a superhero movie, it feels like a breath of fresh air, something that acknowledges the camp and bizareness and embraces it. On the other hand, it feels forced in some places and Jason Momoa is awkward as Arthur Curry, to say the least.
