So, I just saw DC’s superhero film “Aquaman” in the theater earlier today and wow. I was freakin’ blown away! Usually movies full of CGI are never my thing ’cause movies like that feel a bit too cartoonish for me but I can’t help but love “Aquaman”. I didn’t mind the CGI in “Aquaman” ’cause it worked for a movie like “Aquaman”.
I thought James Wan did an impressive job directing his first superhero film. This comes as a big surprise ’cause James Wan is mostly known as a horror film director. He did mostly horror films in his career but he’s starting to do action films more. He did an action film back in 2007 called “Death Sentence” which starred Kevin Bacon in the leading role so James is capable of doing some action movies and remember James directed Fast and the Furious 7 too.
This movie “Aquaman” was entertaining as hell all the way through, I wasn’t bored one bit. The film has an all star cast but I was most impressed with Jason Momoa and Dolph Lundgren, of course. Those two guys helped made the movie watchable. All the action scenes were a blast to watch and since James Wan is mostly known as a horror director, the film did had some horror elements here and there.
I was never a fan of the Aquaman character much but this movie makes me want to start reading Aquaman comics right now and I would like to start buying some soon. It’s a very cool character actually and Jason Momoa makes you want to like the character when you haven’t in the past.
I thought “Aquaman” was the best superhero of the year. Fuck “Black Panther”, man. “Aquaman” was 10x’s way better than “Black Panther”. When I was watching “Aquaman”, I felt like it was almost Star Wars underwater and that’s what it was pretty much. “Aquaman” was so impressive. People maybe getting sick and tired of superheroes movies yes but go see “Aquaman”. It’ll be a superhero movie worth seeing, trust me. I fucking loved it and definitely buying the BluRay when it comes out.
