Storyline Heading
"Aquaman," the origin story of half-surface dweller, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry that takes him on the journey of his lifetime- one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be...a king.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Fantasy - This is a big, effects-heavy action-adventure featuring the DC Comics character. Fans of the other recent DC films may be disappointed that there isn't plot connection to those films such as Justice League. Jason Momoa fans and those of the character will definitely enjoy. The familiar veteran stars such as Willem Dafoe and especially Nicole Kidman have much smaller roles. Language and some intense but not overly brutal and largely bloodless action and violence may be of concern to parents of the youngest children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good ...feels simultaneously like a spoof and an operatic melodrama. Any film that can combine those modes is a force to be reckoned with. For all its wild spectacle and cartoon cleverness, this is a quietly subversive movie, and an evolutionary step forward for the genre.

Rex Reed Full Review
Below Average But the real problem with Aquaman is less its oddly written dialogue than the monotony of its rhythms. It quickly falls into a steady pattern of long bits of expository patter that is suddenly interrupted by a big explosion that send characters scattering bloodlessly.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average ...the film rushes through its story at such a breakneck pace that viewers never have a chance to settle into it, to see it as a lived-in universe. At its best, the film's underwater action...are vibrant, aesthetically engrossing spectacle.

The Guardian Full Review
Below Average ...the film breaks into a kind of screwball comedy. Funny seems to be what the film is going for and yet one scene sees an octopus playing a drum kit in earnest. The film isn't totally unenjoyable, but it isn't particularly coherent either.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 36 moviegoers:
TEENS: Two males loved "Aquaman" and the third one enjoyed it very much. The three female reviews are identical to the males.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One male loved it, but one didn't enjoy it. As for the ladies, three of the females loved it and one enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS: The adult reviews aren't quite as high as I thought they might be. These are very good reviews, since approximately 70% of both the males and females loved "aquaman," but not quite great due to the 20 to 30 percent who felt it was only a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
