Arthur Curry (Aquaman), the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, must step forward to lead his people against his half-brother, Orm, who seeks to unite the seven underwater kingdoms against the surface world.
The film starts with a strangely young Temuera Morrison and Nicole Kidman. Once the backstory of the hero is established, it’s on the the present day. In a big action scene involving a submarine, Aquaman saves the crew and eliminates pirates, establishing he in impossible to mutilate or annoy; he just keeps coming back with quips, punches and scenery destroying mayhem. From then it on through a film of amazing graphics and over the top battle scenes.
It’s just bonkers ! and strangely it works.
It has a $160-200 million budget (and it shows). So far it has made $666 million. There will will be a sequel !
