It doesn't suck, but only if you're willing to sit through two hours of waterlogged world-building before the movie finally takes off.

Wan has taken a seemingly impossible task and imbued it with clarity and personality.

It feels like a step in the right direction for the DCEU. What's more, its hero's former 'joke character' status is kept well at bay.

Aquaman is more seawater than bongwater, unfortunately, but when it gets trippy, it floats within hailing distance of Doctor Strange.

This is a let-down: a laborious, slow-moving and dripping wet film, barnacle-encrusted with solemnity and with a ripply-underwater production design that looks like a giant version of the kitschy items that you put in fish-tanks.

Aquaman does everything we expect a big-budget superhero movie to do, but it also remembers ... to have a heart, and something other than mere bombast to give us for bothering to show up. Bravo.

It's a big call, but Aquaman - one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2018 - might just be the worst film of the year.

All of it is wrapped up in that much needed wry and irreverent self-awareness which DC just hadn't managed to crack until now.

Notwithstanding the inevitable formulaic dialogue and a superabundance of boilerplate superhero action sequences, "Aquaman" turns out to be, almost despite itself, an engaging undersea extravaganza.

Welcome to Aquaman, where you won't have a clue what's going on, but you won't be able to look away either.

A very enjoyable afternoon at the movies. CGI was amazing, the cast were on par, story was captivating enough you could forgive the occasional cringy lines the poor cast had to deliver lol. It was pure and simple fun.

Aquaman on the screen had been much awaited for me. Having Jason Momoa as Aquaman was worth the wait. I enjoyed the movie very much. A very good way to be entertained.

This movie is so Over The Top it comes back down just to go OTT again. Seriously. The last 20is minutes is such a glorious extravaganza of CGI excess you'll either love it or have a nap. Jason Mamoa as Aquaman finds the right pitch for this kind of silly fun. Somewhere between zen surfer dude and heavy metal (actually, this movie's score could've done...

It's big, beautiful and entertaining throughout; with a decent plot, its campy style and wonderfully engaging action sequences.

Whoever oversaw the script should be fed to the sea as this was rotten fish guts from beginning to end. If you counted the cliches you would be given an honourary doctorate in mathematical theory. Over colour processed, over thought and over done. There is some early 90's Shortland St type acting going on here - DC is a sinking ship if this is the carp...
