Synopsis: Aquaman reveals the origin of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on a journey of a lifetime - to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be...a king.
So by all accounts, the synopsis is pretty poorly written, unenticing and lacks any intrigue. It's a story line that has been played out millions of times before. Maybe that's one of the reasons why it took me so long to pick Aquaman up and watch it? I wasn't looking for a run down re-run street.
Poor Synopsis aside, I am glad I did! I was in the mood, for something less horror, but more action, and I have to say, Aquaman, is high visual stimuli and action. With the awesome special effect, fast, story-line movement, it didn't disappoint, nor did it, bore the senses and it is definitely one I will watch again. I would even go as far to say, I am excited for Aquaman 2, due December 2022.
So, special effects aside, the other biggest factor that made Aquaman worth watching was the acting. It is so easy to have cliche acting in genres, that's so fake and unbelievable - with studios trying to hide it behind the special effects. This was not the case here and honestly it was refreshing to see.
So if you're looking for something high action, fast paced, with great special effects and good non cliche acting then I can highly recommend Aquaman!
