This movie was awful.

Perhaps Marvel has spoiled us into thinking that all superhero movies are good. With AQUAMAN, DC has shown us that they're desperate to be Marvel.

Yes, of course Jason Momoa is a handsome man. But the first half of the movie felt rushed — they tried to pack too much into it. I thought the last third of the movie was what it should have been all along, in terms of pace and direction.

Pros:

  • Jason Momoa: handsome, funny.

Cons:

  • Nicole Kidman in a Predator outfit
  • Willem DeFoe digitally regressed to 20 years old
  • I can go on.

The good news is that by the end of the movie, Aquaman is the badass they made him out to be in Justice League.
