Aquaman (2018)

US 143m, Colour
Director: James Wan; Cast: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman

Aquaman is DC Comics’ first feature film based on their underwater superhero. As an epic origin story, there is as much emphasis on the underwater Kingdoms of Atlantis as there is on the title character. Despite a lengthy run time, and sometimes clumsy plot exposition, Aquaman is a highly imaginative film that never feels overly drawn out. Momoa’s contribution to the success of this film cannot be overstated – as his screen presence and humour lighten the story which otherwise takes itself too seriously (Klaus Ming March 2019).
