Aquaman Movie Review (NO SPOILERS)

Went to see the film last night, and I was impressed, Aquaman is possibly my least favorite character that DC publishes but the film really stands out. There are some nice cameos (non comic related, older UK viewers only will probably get the reference) and every villain and character that you can think of that is Aquaman related si there, and they cover the powers well. There is a mid credits scene, but nothing at the very end (so once the credits start rolling, you can take your well deserved bathroom break).

Thank you sooo much for putting “No spoilers” in your thread title. Most of us can’t see it until next week. Also, many thanks for the notice about there being a mid credit scene, but no end credit scene. That’s very helpful info. :blush:

Going back on Monday to see it again :slight_smile:

I’m one of those weird people who stay through the credits even if there’s no scene. I just like the music and the credits.

Aquaman definitely lived up to the hype. I would say it’s the second best film DC has made since WW. Great story telling with plenty of action and comedy with incredible visual effects. A couple of tweaks here and there, but overall a great film. I will definitely be seeing it again. Hopefully it’ll do well but it will be challenging considering it’s coming out the same weekend as Bumblebee and Mary Poppins.

I just got finished watching Aquaman. The movie is totally worth the wait. I was so excited to see the movie (especially a week earlier due to prime) and I was blown away. The soundtrack was excellent and so was the movie. Funny yet very impactfull. I love DC movies but if you had any complaints on past DC movies this will sure turn you around.

I mentioned this on another thread, but am curious since I did not stay for the end credits. Was there any special message after the credits since this was specified for Amazon Prime users?

Nope. Nothing after the credits. There’s only the mid credit scene.

The film is incredibly entertaining, it’s not perfect some scenes seemed slightly clunky. That said the film works, there is a lot of love for the lore of aquaman in the film and all the characters felt correct and looked stunning. Visually its a gorgeous film the world of Atlantis and its kingdoms are amazing to look at. The costume design is stunning with particular praise to Black mantas costume. Aquaman is exactly what i wanted it to be, a beautiful fun action movie. I urge everyone to go see this film if for no other reason than Black manta and his beautiful giant helmet.

Saw the film last night. My thoughts:

  • Amazing effects
  • Story was more nuanced than I thought
  • Cheesy as hell. Sometimes too much but so much fun
  • Incredible action

I feel others/critics may hate on it cause it borrows from other films just like any other comic book movie, but I feel since it’s DCEU, it could get dragged through the mud. It’s so much fun and Mamoa is charming AH.

Btw technically there was an announcement for prime users before the movie… But it wasn’t anything special. I’m gonna go see it again though when it comes out again.

I saw Aquaman movie last night and it was great. I can’t wait to see the movie again.

Me too! I loved it, two hrs plus flew by. I will probably see this again in imax or 3-D. And will definitely buy the Blu-ray, 3-D preferred imported from the UK
