AQUAMAN – A Review by Hollywood Hernandez
Aquaman is the best of the D.C. comics’ movies since Wonder Woman. It’s a great story, but what is amazing about this movie are its special effects. It has the most epic special effects that I have ever seen. It puts previous sci-fi movies to shame with its incredibly advanced effects. It’s been the top moneymaker at the box office for two straight weeks and has already brought in over $750 in worldwide box office receipts.
In Aquaman, Arthur (Jason Momoa) learns he is the bastard son of the Queen of Atlantis, played by Nicole Kidman. She flees Arthur’s father on land when she is ordered to return to Atlantis to be with her Atlantian King. Once back with the king in a prearranged marriage, she gives birth to another son, Orm (played by Patrick Wilson). He plays the evil nemesis in the film, hating surface dwellers because of the way they have polluted the world’s oceans.
When Orm discovers that he has a step-brother, the two go to war using sea creatures to fight their battles. The two brothers riding whales and commanding them as a part their armies is an amazing sight on the big screen.
There is also a love story involving Arthur falling in love with Mera (a beautiful redhead played by Amber Heard). You’ve never seen anything like this movie.
The movie has a run time of 2 hours and 23 minutes, which goes by really fast, and its rated PG-13 for some fantasy violence. On my “Hollywood Popcorn Scale” this movie rates a JUMBO with extra butter, my highest rating.
