Aquaman Movie Review: Mixed Reviews, But We Loved the Action & Excitement!
Aquaman stands out from the rest typical super hero movies!
The stage is set, then steps back to 1982 where an epic love story evolves.
It is a tale of two lovers from different worlds that meet between land and sea.
As cliché as it sounds, this movie takes a familiar concept and brings it new life.

Arthur is a product of two worlds that are at odds. He is learning his way, while learning to love and care for all.
He has a deep connection with both ocean life and the human world.
His mother, the Queen of Atlantis escapes an arranged marriage and meets a light house keeper. Together, they create a family and fall deeply in love.
Years later, we meet Arthur again.
He is charming and trained in Atlantian combat. He seeks out people to help and becomes dubbed ‘Aquaman’.
He is then greeted by a princess of Atlantis, Mera. She leads him on a series of adventures to save to the kingdom from ruin at the hand of his half-brother.
This leads him to fulfill his destiny. The film villain, Manta is a great opposite character to face Aquaman but isn’t the driving force of the film. He is a dark side line to the film that helps to push things forward.
What Did We Think?
This movie brings out the best of lead actor Jason Mimoa.
He shows off his physical prowess, unique tattoos and gruff charm. His character is a bit of a twist from the original comic, and instead the movie features the actor’s true heritage and ties in elements throughout the movie.
In the film, he is able to live between life and the fantasy world with unusual monsters that pop off the sc
As he dives into the ocean, the sea life and scenery surround him leaving the audience to feel as though they have submerged with him.
It. is. awesome!
The visual effects carried throughout the movie really bring the story to life.
Overall, I have to give this movie a great rating.
It peeked my interest from beginning to end and had me jump out of my seat a couple times. I have been looking for another adventure to embrace and this one really caught my eye. This movie is definitely a must see!
