Didn't catch this on the big screen, so I was glad to finally get a copy from the library to watch. I don't think I'd bother watching it again, though. JASON MAMOA is fun to watch, but I didn't think he did that good of a job as Aquaman, except for the early scene of him rescuing the Russian submarine.

Black Manta was awesome. I am so glad they stayed true to the villain's traditional costume. I only wish they'd kept the plotline as a grudge match between Manta and Aquaman and dispensed with the other superfluous villains. A simpler plotline would have made for a much better movie. It seemed like most of the movie was Jason Momoa posing while a billion guppies and miscellaneous CGI Atlantean warriors attacked the bad guys.

A bit of a disappointment, I'm afraid.

Movie was ok. Plot was weak. Do not really care about the actor who plays Aquaman.

Jason Momoa is great, but this movie was a disappointment. The plot is contrived....which is saying alot, because it's a superhero movie; it's supposed to be contrived, but this is.....not very clever??? I think that, and the kooky chaos of the battle sequences is woeful.

I liked that this was a complete story (in other words you do not have to watch other Marvel movies to understand the plot). It has a satisfying ending, and I thought the graphics were pretty impressive.

Very colorful, great story, and Aquaman is fine fine fine.....just found his acting a bit on the fake side.

In typical DC form, this movie was not particularly good. The main characters were attractive and the action scenes looked really cool, but the writing - from the dialog to the plot to the (lack of) character development - was incredibly poor. The only emotional storyline that this movie got right was the family. The connection between Aquaman and his mother was deep and well-played.

Unlike good movies in the superhero oeuvre, this movie jumped from action scene to action scene with no time to breathe or absorb the information you've just received. The awkward quips and nods to comic book fans are clunky. In the opening scene, one man says, "That's not a man." I couldn't help yelling at my television, "That's an AQUAman!" I was right - it was, in fact, Aquaman. There are also too many villians, which is a ridiculously annoying trope for Superhero movies. Black Manta, a seminal villain from the comics, is sidelined for the horrendously named "Ocean Master." Stick to one villain, kids, and make them cool. If your villain can't sustain an entire 90-minute movie, then get a new villain. Throwing in as many comic book references as you can feels cheap.

Overall, I did enjoy this movie. Momoa is a pleasure to watch on the screen, and the action sequences were intense. For a DC movie, it wasn't as bad as I expected. However, DC movies will continue to suffer these same problems until they decide to invest in their scripts.
