Much like the “Fast and Furious” movies, “Aquaman” is insane, high-octane action that never takes itself too seriously and becomes much better when you don’t think about it. The story is the generic tale of a every-man becoming king and the journey he must under-go, and the actors do a fine job of selling it, with Jason Mamoa continuing to be serviceable in the lead role. But the film really shines when showing the impact and scope of underwater battles and all of the vast creatures of the deep, making everything carry far more weight and scale than it would on land. Beyond that, this is a fine yet fun action movie that will keep your interest from start to finish. A very good summer blockbuster…released in the middle of December.
Final Grade: B-
