With the game cast, a charismatic lead performance by Jason Mamoa, the electrifying visuals and the infectiously fun tone, Aquaman is a cinematic wave you will want to catch.

It's a step in the right direction [for Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe.] There's just a few kinks to be worked out before the inevitable sequel.

[Jason Momoa] makes the movie really fun to watch.

I like Aquaman. I'm not saying it's a great movie or that it's the savior of the DC cinematic universe, but it is a lot of fun.

All in all it's not great, but it's not terrible. Better than Thor 2, I will say that, but I feel like this is one of those movies I'll forget the plot of.

Aquaman appears to have everything except rhythm or a clear vision. [Full Review in Spanish]

With big battles and complex lore, it clearly wants to be an underwater Lord of the Rings, but instead ends up closer to Phantom Menace territory, with some tonally incoherent splashes of Fast and Furious.

Hollywood has given us the greatest, goofiest holiday gift in a long time.

a serviceable entry that is worth dipping one's toes back into the DC cinematic waters

Aquaman's faults are very marked, but its virtues are impressive and manages to create an entertaining experience. [Full Review in Spanish]

There were some cringe-worthy acting moments in this movie...that's due to the script more so than the actors themselves.

Cheesy and ridiculous, but also a surprising amount of fun.

Kinda fun, mostly due to Momoa's charisma and presence, and the underlying sense of levity. Aquaman doesn't suck any more, but he definitely needs a better vehicle than this.

A fast-paced free-for-all with fantastic special effects and a solid story about a troubled young man who finds himself the last hope for two worlds.

...naturally overlong, overblown and sopping wet with CG effects.

Aquaman is fun. It's a lot of fun! Especially if you are willing to shut your brain off and enjoy the movie on the level it is intended.

What follows is a straightforward superhero adventure - but it is all heightened by a couple of standout factors.

Aquaman's script is plodding and lacking the emotional weight or character development it needs to draw the viewer in

After the sombre slogs of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, it's refreshing to see a hero that doesn't take himself so seriously.

Momoa, Kidman, Wilson and others are there to service the script, even when it gets cheesy, and it does get cheesy indeed, but the film's warmheartedness and clarity of purpose win out in the end.
