After making a cameo in two other DC films, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League – the rightful King of Atlantis finally gets his own full-length feature. Bringing to life James Wan’s vision, the towering mountain-man Jason Momoa returns to play Aquaman. With more than enough hype around the film, fans have been waiting to see what DC had to offer with this underwater superhero’s story.

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.

Jason Momoa dominates the screen with his presence and puts his own stamp on a character who has been the butt of jokes in the comic book world, to make him unquestionably cool again. Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman, and Willem Dafoe put in strong acting work individually to bring sufficient depth to the proceedings. Aquaman is DC’s successful attempt to create one of it’s best films since Dark Knight. It’s awesome to look at, it doesn’t take itself too seriously, and it’s a wild adventure. Go on, dive in, don’t miss it.
