DC need to reboot the entire DC universe in my humble opinion as a lover of the world of DC since a kid who learned to read, write and speak through the medium of comics. Aquaman is a great example of a movie leading with special effects that are so sensational in their cartoonish execution as to lose all sense of realism, in the sense that none of it looks convincing, like the wooden acting, the CGI is synthetic, instead of endeavouring to copy Marvel's winning M.O, DC need to originate its own original take of a comic book universe that has become boring. Audiences need to be able to relate to characters in some kind of way, even if they're archetypes, the problem with Aquaman is that there's no sense of threat, he's like Superman but the undersea version. The movie like so many others nowadays is driven by CGI, story, characters and plot but a mere afterthought as if to justify this bloated, overlong, 'indefinite deal of nothing'being made in the first place, its budget could probably feed a starving nation for the next couple of sentences, so I don't think its too much to ask for at least a half decent movie, especially after the travesties like Suicide Squad, Man of Steel, Batman Vs Superman and Wonder Woman was okay but blew a major opportunity to ground the DC universe in at least one decent story. I was so excited to Aquaman, the comparisons to Thor did Not put me off, the First Thor movie was great fun, the second was drivel, the third was exhilarating as was Civil War which I loved, anyway I digress, Warner Bros needs to do what DC do when they relaunch their entire line of comics when they realise their current direction is alienating the very fans they're looking to get into the movie theatres in the first place. I also loved Star Trek Beyond( although the motorbike crescendo climax was weak) so had high expectations ref James Wan, he's a master of epic action sequences but after a while, one becomes desensitised to spectacle and just wants a good old fashioned yard that does not ramble on like a feel good acid trip that goes bad right from the starting gate. Jason Momoa is the best thing, in fact, the movie should have been a character study of him, in the style of Chris Nolan but with the beautiful world that James Wan's special effects team conjured up( no pun intended) . Having written the latter, ( I haven't summarised the plot because there isn't one) , I'd still suggest You go and see because some of the visuals on display are batshit crazy in a good but extremely cartoonist way. Warner Bros needs to start hiring people who have the same love for their heroes/heroines as Marvel do for their's! that are an insult to Us geeks who grew up on this stuff
