Evie Totty: “It was ok.”
Ok so - this IS an improvement on:
DCU (with WW still being the best)
Aquaman's origin story
BUT - there was NO chemistry between Mamoa and Heard. I was shocked when they kissed because it seemed to come from nowhere. And I cannot believe I'm about to say this (because I go to the movies JUST to see the SFX sometimes): there was too much CGI. And I really didn't care about anyone.
I did like the James Wan flavor in the movie (especially when they got to the Trench) though. Do I want my money back? Nah. But I am glad that I didn't actually pay to see it twice (thank you A List subscription from AMC)
