AQUAMAN !! (My Review)
 

 

image
So i just got out from watching Aquaman.. and MAN !!!.. This is it... DC Mafia.. I've Called this A Long Time a go and ima say it again.. Aquaman is legit THE BEST DCEU Movie up to date !!. Ignore the rotten tomato scores, seems like a lot of Marvel Fanboys went in there to trash it.. This movie has everything.. But It's not a perfect movie but it is great !!

image
This film has to be one of the best performance i've ever seen Jason Momoa do in anything. The role feels natural.. Doesn't feel forced and very noticeable that he is comfortable playing as the character he's in. Amber Heard did a great job as Mera. Nicole Kidman did a fantastic job ! Def wouldn't had expect her to take a role like this (Yess she has action sequence as well and its dope as fu*k !) Everybody the entire cast was great from beginning to end.

image
Although Orm is the main villain of the film, Black Manta was scripted in perfectly that goes along with the story. A character that first you say to yourself " Yeah aquaman, kick his a*s " but when certain events that leads into the rivalry goes down... You actually end up sympathizing with him and understand his motives and why he has this beef with Arthur (Aquaman). He doesn't feel random but a necessary touch to the film, although a part of me wishes i got to see more of him but another part of me is happy with what we was given from him due to the film setting up a rivalry that can expand for a long time which def has me pumped & excited for.

image
Patrick Wilson character Orm was another great addition to the film. His performance as the villain was great. I kind of look at him as a Underwater version of Zod in some ways. That they have a vision and a good reason for it that actually makes sense.. **(removes Marvel reference to not offend others)**

Overall, this movie has it all.. Great CGI, great action sequences, Some funny moments (although i can admit that there are moments where the jokes don't land and can be slightly cringing). The film does feel a bit too long but as i keep thinking about the film i feel like everything that was in the film was needed ! Every scene of the film felt important to the story and to the character themselves.. This film really gave every single character from Decent to Large amount of character development.. So i can def stand by this film and say that by far this is the Best DCEU up to date in my honest opinion.. This is one film that Warner Bros, James Wan Crew Took their time and used every single penny in that budget to make this film.. The details itself proves that James Wan truly cares about the Aquaman story and KNOWS HIS sh*t !! Like literally James Wan must read Aquaman comics on his spare time because this film alone proves he did his homework... All in all this movie gets a solid 9/10

Pros
• Great Action Sequences (A lot)
• Good CGI
• Great Character Development
• Dope Villains (Orm / Black Manta)
• Great Pacing in story
• Extremely creative on how they go about certain scenes

CONS
• Worst soundtrack out of all DC Movies (especially that fu*king pitbull song)
• Movie feels really long at certain moments (not really a bad thing tho)

BONUS:
• Yes there is a mid-credit scene that opens up for a sequel
• This movie treats itself as its own thing, only Justice League / DCEU reference they make was Defeating Stephenwolf
• Aquaman's eye color changing from Zacks to This explained (somewhat)
• The Underwater CGI is the most Fantastic thing i've ever seen. Atlantis is purely amazing.
• HIGHLY SUGGEST you watch at IMAX 3D, this film feels like it was made for 3D.

visually it's dope. James Wan should create a ttitle for that underwater experience. Because I know Disney wants to make a live action little mermaid

Other than that it's a cheesy movie Pitbull covering & the song Africa was a TERRIBLE lifestyle choice. But the check probably was nice

Naw MOS is still the best DCEU film. I know all superhero orgin sh*t is basically the same package thats whatever. All the comedy is corny
Black Manta is lit though. They need to make a Legion of Doom film

MOS, BVS UE, Wonder Woman, then Aquaman by default. Because JL and SS were straight dumpster juice.

Aquaman had way too many force jokes and corny scenes to be the best DCEU film to date.

The visuals and f*ght sequences were on point though. But nah op, while it was a decent film.....Aquaman isn't the one.

This shameful n*ggah here.

This movie has a superhero that has the vocabulary and catchphrases of a five year old.

.All in all this movie gets a solid 9/10

Shameful, hoe.

@ MOS is most def still one of my top favorites ! That aint ever going change.. But this film had everything i wanted in a Aquaman movie. Yeah majority of the jokes weren't really that funny but i looked passed that cuz sh*t.. Marvel does the same.. Especially with Guardians that they're jokes don't land for me at all lol. & oh god that Pitbull song was fu*king GARBAGE !!! Did i not mention the music choice were bad ? lol
@ That's a tough one.. Cuz MOS is still one of my favs as well.

@ Lmao Take what L ? Movie is doing great ! Movie was great. Ain't no shame. If you had seen the movie you'll know that the movie is At least at the very Least " Good ". Just in my perspective i felt that it was great ! I had fun and enjoyed it all the way. You must be one of them " I barely enjoy any type of movies " guy.

Black Manta/soundtrack were the weakest parts of the film imo but other than that it was great.

Bro. Patrick Wilson’s Orm was on some Michael Shannon General F*cking Zod sh*t.

Edit: you pretty much said that


Movie was legit af. I want to go see it again.
I gotta see this sh*t in IMAX. this movie had everything in it and it was executed pretty good. except for the stupid one liners and corny jokes that every one likes. thanks to marvel


Movie is more popular than Spider-Man and Bumblebee.


And all I gotta say is
but but but but nobody wanna see dis!!

lmaoo Facts !! It's typically marvel d*ck-riders that are hating on this movie. Literally this film was made with a lot of love and IS a fu*king game changer.. Like it's been said in this post already, James Wan should give this Underwater Action a name because there is NO movie out there that pulled off such great underwater action sequences like this film.. This is literally the first of it's kind ! And people need to stop comparing it to Thor / Black Panther etc because its nothing like that AT ALL !! Every character had a specific motive for a purpose that's reasonable..

Orm: Is tired of the humans destroying the sea (which is actually something based on true events), i love that they explore on how humans are constantly polluting the ocean with garbage etc...

Black Manta: Yeah he's a pirate, never a good guy but begged Arthur to save his dads life
[spoiler - click to view]



Mera: Loves Atlantis but truly see's that it is in the wrong hands for the wrong purpose and knows that Orm wants to start a war that can be resolved in other ways. (Leads back to Orm having a good reason once again).

Arthur (Aquaman): Just wants to live life and finally being able to meet his mother. Loves his dad, willing to help people but is now caught up in the mix of the situation of atlantis
[spoiler - click to view]



the list goes on ! These characters we're extremely well written and given a purpose that serves the story right. Yeah the soundtrack was weak, but the action sequences we're amazing !! The character development between Arthur & Mera felt real. And my god when Arthur gets that Original Classic Aquaman suit.. The pure glory !! Man and that ending when he jumps out of the water and does that pose.. The entire theater erupted into cheers. Literally out of all DC movies i've gone to watch in theater (believe me i've watched all in premiere nights) This is the most active i've seen audience enjoying every single moment.. sh*t even when Mera & Aquaman finally kissed the entire theater cheered lol.

Cant believe these reviews, are DC stans that hard up for a win that they'll take anything?? Aquaman was mediocre the whole movie felt like something seen before, not in the essence of another superhero film but felt like something already seen, like I was watching a rerun, couldn't figure out what it was that gave me this sense, till I got home flipping through channels and seen this

[video - click to view]

its basically the same movie tweak somethings take somethings from the other 2 Thor movies and Avengers and you have Aquaman

Great review "Mah Man"

Yes i agree that this is DCEU's best movie probably but not my fav. I think Man Of Steel is still my fav for multiple reasons but mainly because its not a movie that Marvel could ever do.

Aquaman is fu*king great and i just cant wait to watch it again.

He was full tilt, invested. His whole prescene was ill to me, he nailed that sh*t.

(Imma sucker for Shakespearean-esque villains too )

The cinematography was fu*king hot too.
