#CindySays… Aquaman is just your average fish story

Aquaman was always one of my favorite comic books as a kid. I so wanted it to be great… but I found this one to under utilize the potential of Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson.

The good stuff? Beautifully visualized underwater universe. Gorgeous colors and interesting use of sea creatures. Cool CGI effects. Kids will love that.

The not so good? Lazy dialogue, uninspired score, and most melodramatic villain we’ve seen, well since Justice League. Patrick Wilson is a stellar actor and even he couldn’t quite elevate the character of King Orm beyond a “dun-dun-duh” villain. I had really hoped for some great smart aleck comedy from Arthur/Aquaman, but his character seemed too overwhelmed to deliver on that.

At first, I thought it was just me, but my teen son, i.e., the fan base, was bored. Sorry DC… this one was not on par with Wonder Woman as an origin story in my view.
