From the manufacturer
Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.
Aquaman looks as good as you'd expect for a recent effects-heavy blockbuster. Not surprisingly, the wide range of locales during this film have their own district appearance: murky underwater depths, warm and inviting interiors at the home of Arthur's father, sun-soaked Sicily and the Sahara Desert, the dark and foreboding Trench, otherworldly Atlantis.
This gives Aquaman a much more varied and visually interesting appearance compared to most modern superhero movies and, while it still relies on the occasional grim-and-gritty palette so common these days (not to mention an abundance of teal and orange), the stray splashes of vivid color are pretty refreshing. Primaries fare extremely well here, from the fluorescent red of Mera's hair to the yellow-gold of Aquaman's official gear and, of course, an endless sea of blues, both underwater and above-ground. Black levels are also typically rich, with the disclaimer that most underwater sequences are designed to rarely extend beyond a deep grey. Likewise, fine details and texture are impressive: from fish scales to skin pores, the film's razor-sharp appearance also tends to feel a bit softer by design when we're under the ocean.
In further contrast, the IMAX-framed sequences, which are sporadic early on but dominate the second half, seem to favor a smoother overall appearance and showcase a tremendous amount of depth and clarity. The more expansive compositions give these moments a wide-open atmosphere that, despite their almost random and occasionally jarring contrast when they arrive, feel more comfortable once they've settled in. As a whole, this is clearly an outstanding effort that accurately preserves the film's ambitious and, at times, overwhelming visuals.

The visuals are eye-searingly bright and vivid, and the sound mix is LOUD and aggressive. Add to that the generous use of expanded 16:9 aspect ratio to take full advantage of your flat panel display, and you've got a title that checks all the boxes as far as offering everything you could possibly want to showcase your home-theater system.
The movie itself is a rather generic comic-book origin story. Having said that, it is a fun, entertaining movie to watch, and the fantastic presentation only adds to the experience - especially for those with capable systems.
The movie isn't heavily laden with cuss words, but in my opinion , it doesn't need any as this movie also has great appeal to a much younger audience too.
The acting is ok at best and the scripting dialogue could have been improved too.
However, it made boat loads of money and for some reason that's how films are often judged to be good or not:pity.
Like I said,it's good-not great.
Aquaman is not better than the first two Superman movies, the first two Batman movies, or Mr. Nolan's Batman trilogy.
It is, however, after Wonder Woman, the best of the DC superhero movies since Zack Snyder had anything to do with them.
In particular, I love how the film addresses the 'Aquaman talks to fish' joke and turns it on its ass - into something very scary.
This ain't Super Friends, folks!
As for the movie, the 3D is one of the best conversions I have seen throughout a whole movie. Probably helps that it is basically all "created worlds" over set design but still sometimes it can be lost between 2D and 3D. It really popped out and the colors were very bright. Watching the features section and seeing behind the detail they incorporated to make it work made me appreciate the nuances even more.
