Aquaman film keeps its head above water

0 votes

Aquaman, produced and released by Warner Bros, has been in theaters since mid-December of 2018. While many of the movies focusing on DC’s extended universe have been flops as of late, Aquaman presents itself as a good time so long as the viewer just enjoys the ride. This film should be recommended to those who are interested in a superhero film with excellent graphics and an audience that isn’t expecting a stellar plot-line or script.

If a movie goer were to give a more analytical look into Aquaman, the slower pace of the film, and it’s less-than fantastic script would most likely change their outlook.

The movie’s run-time is a colossal two hours and 23 minutes, and with much of the first hour and a half being world-building and setting-up for the big fight, it may bore audiences who are looking for an action-packed superhero movie. The script also lacks a certain appeal, with lines that will make an audience cringe at times, along with a lack of greater purpose or meaning to the story.

The movie is best enjoyed by taking in the amazing setting created through animation, such as the various sea creatures and the dazzling mythical city of Atlantis, along with the fight scenes between Aquaman and his antagonists. Actors Jason Momoa, who plays Aquaman, and Amber Heard, who plays Mera, do a very good job of playing out the two characters. This is essential, as the two are heavily focused on throughout the course of the film. While the chemistry between the two wasn’t perfect, it was sold well enough to be mentioned.

Aquaman’s musical score was well suited for the ocean environment and overall was a positive aspect of the film. For more information on what songs were on the musical score along with how they were produced, a link will be provided to an excellent article by Comic Book.

A rating for the movie Aquaman would be 7.5/10, as the fight scenes, musical score, graphics, and actors make up for the sup-bar script, plot-line, and pacing.

I’m a senior at Gull Lake High School, and this is my first year on staff. I enjoy writing about our school sports’ programs and other areas as well. Having a deep interest and enjoyment in our English classes at Gull Lake, I’ve decided to pursue a different side of writing by doing newspaper and hope to provide entertaining articles for our viewers. Being involved in sports such as cross country and track, while also being invested to clubs such as Debate and Model UN, I write about topics that affect both myself and classmates.
