Let me tell you a story, a story about a man, a hidden sea and a lost land named Atlantis. This man Arthur Curry isn’t a king, he is more than that, he is a Hero; who tries to save everyone. This is the story of his origin, his struggles and how he becomes the Aquaman we all love. When war raged in the world of Atlantis and it’s ruler Orm threatens the surface world, Arthur must take the responsibility to protect the earth from this destruction. This is his journey with Princess Mera to retrieve a legend to save the earth.
The actor Jason Momoa totally nailed it as the iconic DC superhero Aquaman. Nicole Kidman (Queen Atlanna) is superb as always, Patrick Wilson (King Orm), Amber Heard (Princess Mera), Willem Dafoe (Vulko) did amazing jobs as well. It’s really awesome to watch all the wars coming to life from the pages. One of the most amazing moments in the film is when Arthur finally gets into the Aquaman suit and holds the trident. Really enjoyed the way James Wan handed Black Manta too. Well, this film is a great satisfaction for all those DC fans also others who were disappointed after the Justice League. I’m really happy that World of DC has a good one on their hands- even with its flaws.
As Princess Mera says to Aquaman, “You think you’re unworthy to lead because you have two different worlds. That is exactly why you are worthy.”
Aquaman is fun and according to critics; it is one of the greatest superhero movies ever made. Go watch it!
