A cinematic experience at its finest, a delightful and magical tale with the perfect balance of action, thrill, and suspense with a touch of romance.
A beautiful well-written story that delivered a fantastic plot, act, and visual effects. A movie worthy of its long length and I enjoyed every second, minute, and hour of the latest DC film.

Aquaman was everything and a little bit more, I’m not a fan of long dragged out films that doesn’t seem to ever come to an end, when they’re two-three hours long I find myself getting uncomfortable on the chair, inpatient, and simply bored – wondering when the credit will start rolling, hoping it’ll be before I go entirely gray.

Based on the comics with the same name, Aquaman is an Atlantean creature that was born by being the son of the Atlantic Queen and the son of a mundane father. Here, for the ones who haven’t read the comics I believe they delivered a great small yet enough background story so one would be able to keep up, no moment became dull, everything had a meaning, a reason to being part of the movie and script and story. It never got dragged out and was highly entertaining from beginning to end.

Arthur AKA Aquaman learns he is the heir to take over the underwater kingdom and must take his place at the throne while battling his half-brother that’s after the throne and also convince his people that he is the right man for it, even though being half-breed.

Strongly recommend this great film, a must on the big screen. Personally, I loved it. 8,5/10
