In 2019 we should to be honest with each other. The only reason why we are going to watch Aquaman is Jason Momoa.
First of all, you have to know that there’s no overt sexiness in this movie, but there are two and a half hours of story of this super dude that spends his lifetime between two worlds.
If we compare Aquaman with other superhero movies, we can see the mediocrity of this film.
The story is all about the adventures of Arthur Curry, king of Atlantis and member of the Justice League. He is half human and half ocean dweller. He is the son of queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman) and a simple lighthouse keeper Thomas Curry (Temuera Morrison). He wants nothing to do with his royal heritage after his mother leaves them behind to return to her kingdom. When Princess Mera (Amber Heard) finds Arthur and tells him how important it is becoming a king of her underwater country, Arthur needs to choose which world he belongs to.
Back to the real talk. There is no real action or original storytelling that impresses the public despite James Wan paying a lot attention to the special effects. The romantic angle seems very forced and the humor too obvious as well.
The point of strength – hands down – is the performance of the interpretations of the whole cast. Collectively they have created a miracle: saving this movie from complete disaster.
At least Jason has an impressive credibility in the lead role that makes this movie pretty enjoyable.
