Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Director: James Wan
Release Date: 21 December 2018
Star Cast: Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe
The son of Queen Atlanna (Nicole Kidman) and a simple lighthouse keeper Tom Curry (Temuera Morrison), Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) wants nothing to do with his royal heritage after his mother leaves them behind to return to her underwater kingdom. But when Princess Mera (Amber Heard) reaches out to tell him of a significant threat from the deep seas by his own family, and the people of Atlantis, Arthur needs to choose which world he belongs to.
There aren’t any path-breaking surprises in ‘Aquaman’s storytelling, but the presentation is refreshing. The CGI work is top notch, especially during some of the fantastic underwater set pieces. James Wan pays a lot of attention to the stunt choreography and how the action is interpreted through slick camera work including some impressive long-take sequences. This keeps the momentum flowing, even as the run-time feels a little bloated especially when the plot runs into choppy waters in the second act.
