Aquaman (2018)Action, Adventure, Sci-fi
- Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman
- James Wan
Chock-full of expositional dialogue, Aquaman treats its audience as if they are idiots who only seek CGI spectacle and money shots of the hero coming out of waterfalls. I wish Warner Bros. knew how to treat audiences with some respect and got creative with how they execute an origin story. Aquaman barely lets you breathe (pun intended) by bursting a villain and action sequence one after the other. Our superhero movie fatigue is exacerbated by Aquaman, while another movie out now in cinemas, Spider-Verse, does the complete opposite. Aquaman is through-and-through a popcorn movie. If you're looking for something that's pushing the genre and artform forward, I suggest you go see Spider-Verse.
