If Aquaman breezes past philosophical dilemmas to get right to the mayhem, at least Wan and company commit to said mayhem 100 percent.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aquaman is dumb and loud and really dumb and too long and dumb but also wonderfully creative and shameless; it's both the superhero film we need, and the one we deserve.

Momoa was terrific in the role, and even though it's peculiar that the DCEU is doing things in reverse, we've finally arrived at his time to shine in a solo film.
January 3, 2019
Aquaman actually breaks the dour DC mold and delivers a gonzo, highly inventive piece of entertainment that has a surprisingly fresh vision overseen by director James Wan.
Full Review | Original Score: B
January 2, 2019
A fish-folk tale making a spectacle of itself... mindless and muddled with glimmers of grandeur. In truth, Aquaman's appeal is strictly tied to Momoa's enthusiasm: it's infectiously sexy.

This action movie has a fair amount of humor in it. Jason Momoa seems to embody the right combination of imposing physique and jovial good nature to pull this off.

A film that luxuriates in all of the absolute dumbest nonsense of superhero comics.
