One-line Reviews (501)

A completely predictable storyline, a predictable villain that was not very villainess.

Totally boring.

Had it been a better film that kept me on the edge of my seat in excitement, I wouldn't even have noticed but this felt like all the epic grandeur of a Star Wars adventure minus the thrills and excitement, and that risks the onset of boredom.

Stereotypical bad predictable writing, backed up with horrible acting by respected actors that clearly can't say no to money grabs like this.

The bad guys are boring and predictable and the only 1 demential, a younger brother with mommy issues.

Worth watching just for Jason Mamo's opening shot; shirtless, from behind, he stands, flips his hair back and gives a cheeky grin.

Generic, embarrassingly bad jokes, cliche but in the end still very entertaining movie .

Unfortunately I went to the theater to watch it and after a little while it became apparent that this was just an absolutely horrible movie, and I spent most of the time waiting for it to end and luckily falling asleep during parts.

Puddleman is surprisingly entertaining .

The birth of their son Arthur and his eventual maturity into our land and sea hero Aquaman (Jason Momoa) was very entertaining as well.

I enjoyed it much more than the recent movies based in this universe.

If you want the worst kind of cheesy and cliche, watch Battlefield L.

This movie is one of those that aren't good at all if you analyse them as mere movies, but are actually so stupid at times that they're entertaining.

But it's at least twenty minutes too long and over indulgent, with a threadbare, unengaging story and empty, soulless performances.

That said, the movie is packed with thrilling, kinetic, and meticulously designed and choreographed action set-pieces, in which you really can follow the action and the liberated fight sequences buoyed by raucous deluge of dazzling array of visual effects.

Even watching paint dry is more exciting, thrilling, and interesting than this movie is.

It was so uninteresting, boring, and predictable I could stay focused more then 20 minutes at a time.

I was so bored!

Enjoyable .

At points reminded of the Scorpion King, and that was rather bland and boring.

A few times was I checking my watch and feeling as though it dragged a bit.

Stunning visual effects and costume design, Jason Momoa is Aquaman.

In addition to the film being far too long - the stars were the fish and the goat in the plane flying over the desert.

Aquaman, the character, is at least engaging and charming.

The story is great, the effects are stunning and even clocking in over 2 hours it's still full with action.

It has fully predictable plot, full of cliches and bad jokes that don't fit in.

Very Entertaining .


on a GOOD day I'd give it 5/5and just to confirm, i LOVE fantasy, marvel, adventure movies but DAMN this I felt was a waste of my time.

What a waste of perfectly good time .

The introductory scene to The Aquaman character is breathtaking.

It was a marathon to stop myself from falling asleep with a terrible script, almost no character development, tinny acting from everyone except William Dafoe (and he wasn't at his best by any means) and a complete lack of substance.

First of all, I think it was an unexpected film.

But this dragged, was cheesy as hell, and was definitely not one for men aged 20+ Come on DC, The Dark Knight trilogy got it right.

Wooden acting, wooden dialogue, wooden storyline, wooden baddies, and way too long.

This movie falls into the latter, with stunning CGI, Great music and score, and action sequences design for the big screen (think IMAX big).

What most people want is a good captivating entertaining movie period.

The lines are lame the humor attempts are cliche and not funny in the least I also felt a bit childish like some executive let their son help with the writing cause its that shallow and the only thing that is funny about it is the costumes and .

Story is good, but was little predictable.

There is time for natural, majestic landscapes as well, such as a beautiful Italian village, the stunning Sahara desert or the claustrophobic Trench.

The story was too predictable and writing of the characters was weak.. though the visuals were one of the good parts.

The humor is off, the cgi isn't good, the poses are cliche and forced.

Total garbage waste of time wish i never even tried to watch this tripe

This film was very entertaining, effects, story and acting (Although ropey/cheesy sometimes).

The dialogues are so stupid and pretentious, and frankly the protagonist is this big guy who never learn how to act.

Worth watching despite knowing Aquaman's origin story .

The King of the Seven Seas has chances to become the most outstanding, fascinating and exotic superhero of the whole combo out there.

The camera angles were unimaginative, the lighting was contrived and distracting.

Amazing movie enjoyed it so much .

The movie was filled with poor acting, dull dialogue, far too many hair flips, and one liners meant to be funny that completely fell flat.

The movie was was an mix of cliche's and highly predictable.

Unwatchable .

It's no secret that the DC Extended Universe went from bad to worse within American comic book film landscape; diabolically histrionic, unnecessarily drawn-out, fiercely dark, overly serious; whatever the dilemma may be, Walter Hamada, the new president of DC-based film production after legends Geoff Johns and Jon Berg stepped down in early 2018, had to move quickly and wisely his cards after "Justice League"'s inglorious financial outcome and poorly critics' response.

Yawn.. worst superhero movie ever.

Agenda, propaganda, the things that pollute Martian, Wooden Woman, Nibber Panther, Zootopia, Frozen - they are the first and foremost things that inhibit the suspension of disbelief.

So, when this movie isn't giving us really expensive special effects shots of submarines, giant seahorses, and vibrantly colored underwater cities, it's giving us really boring scenes where people with names we cannot remember explain things to other people with names we cannot remember.

The plot, if there is one, is a mish-mash that is too hard to follow.

Leaving the action on one side, I think that the rest of the film during the moments when nobody is fighting, are then, boring, full of dialogues and performances that sincerely do not contribute anything to the importance we have on these characters.

Worst of all, this whole film was predictable.

too much hype, very slow and gets boring sometimesit's a typical masala Hollywood movie

The dialogue is very boring there is nothing entertaining about it.

From that premise alone, the film has a very predictable narrative, and its not hard to figure out what happens throughout the runtime.

The two stars, Jason Momoa and Amber Heard, are pretty good eye candy, as were a couple of the second-stringers, gorgeous Patrick Wilson and still-stunning Nicole Kidman.

Bland mushy effects.

this film was fast paced action and i loved it, will look forward to the follow up

If you are only going to watch this movie because of jason, save your money and look him up on safari or something .

The sequences are laborious and dull.

His charm kept the movie entertaining.

Save ur money, save ur time, save ur eyes this is a complete waste of money.

Boring dialogue and too much politics.

Well worth watching .

Visually exciting .

Amber Heard is great, and the chemistry between her Indiana Jonesian character, Mera and Momoa's Aquaman is electric and gripping.

It is long and boring.

Very entertaining !

Really cringy dialogue throughout, bad cgi to the point that it just looks like they are standing in front of a green screen most of the time and just overall a really boring slow movie.

we didn't get to know them, because of bad writing and too many fight scenesthe cliches- you can get drunk everytime you notice a cliche stolen from other movies in this one.

Have tried to watch this movie about 5 times and cannot stay awake until the end.

it was fascinating .

This film isn't perfect, but it's entertaining and funny and a bit silly, which is how it should be.

It really is a gripping watch from start to finish.

The story is predictable.

The only problem is the villains and supporting cast are more boring than him.

My kids enjoyed it though.

The dialogue is pathetic at times and a lot of the action scenes feel way too long and only made to fill out time and mask a lack of substance.


The Black Panther movie is rated much higher because or that, i mean compare both movies, which one was much more breathtaking?

First the bad: It's way too long, that desert scene was really trash, some music choices were questionable to say the least.

Despite the giants; Kidman and Dafoe, this was an utter waste of time.

Has similarities to the first Thor film but as you know by now the way these two franchises have been handled is vastly different and such Aquaman is a toothless and dull release

If you haven't watched this movie yet, I recommend you don't waste your time!

A thoroughly entertaining ride.

Aquaman was entertaining from beginning to the end, visuals are beautiful, a lot of epic moments here and there, People this days are ruining movies by trying to act too smart!!

Totally unbearable.

A waste of time

The CGI was slow & terrible.

Aquaman is just a terrible moronic movie that is a solid waste of your life if you choose to watch it.

Aquaman is more like bucket man, an empty bucket of drivel.

The movie really is stunning.

The fight scenes were boring.

But the main issue, which makes this movie unwatchable without at least 4 cans of beer, is the fact that its linear as hell, there are 0 unpredictable plot twists, from the beginning of the movie (or even from trailers) you for sure know how its going to end.

This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

This was one of the worst movies I've seen in awhile.

Good entertaining movie .

Can be moderately entertaining only if you completely switch off your brain.

The writing is at a solid 1 star with boring bubblegum story lines.

However, the plot was weak, the acting was far from perfect and aside from the occasional surprise, the 2 ½ hour movie was fairly predictable.

One of the most boring films I've ever seen.

This is quite possibly the worst movie ever created.

First, the pros- the visual effects are aesthetic and absolutely stunning.

The special effects and design were cliche to say the least, which is why one generally wants to see this type of movie.

Formulaic and cliched: change the characters and settings and you've got pretty much the story of every comic book superhero.

Ignore the desensitized, crybaby bores that have no imagination.

Absolutely Bland .

Boring, incredibly underwhelming experience.

Simply cause of stunning undersea world.

Don't waste your time

Slightly entertaining big budget B movie.

dull over did special effect .

One of the worst movies ever made.

Aquaman is text book formulaic and reminded me of a combination of Gladiator, Star Wars and Finding Nemo - lol.

Probably one of the better DC films, just wish studios would keep films to a 2 hour runtime and lose some of the unnecessary filler for a predictable ending.


Enjoyed it .

Unwatchable .

The movie has its moments but sort of bland.

Feels Like a TV Show - Don't Waste Your Time .

The most confusing and disgusting point of the movie was the build-up of the villain that has never been finished, which can only mean the path for a sequel, and on this the curse of abruptly cut stories continues.

Besides acting being bad, the action packed scenes keep you immersed.

Spectacular, dumb, fun and entertaining .

Enjoyable and refreshing .

We didn't even finish watching it because it was boring, and I could care less about any of the characters.

I do not like this combination of so many tones, it gives me a feeling of confusion proving that I can not adapt to the storyline to enjoy it.

Although Momoa gives us a good Aquaman, Patrick Wilson gives us a (yawn) boring main antagonist.

Unbelievably dull and lacking substance .

a waste of time and money, good only for long air trips and in-flight entertainment (perfect for sleeping!

Jason Mamoa did a decent job capturing this new take on the classic stodgy King of the Seas.

), does lift the movie out of the normal, bland, macho bravado dialogue and action that takes place as our hero battles his way from one perilous incident to the next.

For all the highs and lows Aquaman was quite enjoyable to me; more than I thought was possible.

It makes for a muddled and confusing cinema experience and dulls the sparkle of the attractive and talented cast.

Boring plot, a mountain of cheesy lines and some poor acting.

The content of the story is not a very novel story, but the narrative rhythm is good, the climax is almost no urine point progressive layers, fascinating.

And the acting is uninspired with uninteresting character that gives you nothing worth to remember.

Such a bad writing, everything was too banal and chaotic.

Entertaining movie.

Subversive humor has already been overused in the Marvel series, so even though it was new for the DC series, it still felt contrived and unoriginal.

The movie was fun, action packed and the CGI was amazing!

The two villains have quite compelling background and convincing motives.

People are only positively reviewing this movie because the last few were some of the worst movies ever made.

The story takes every cliche you've ever seen in an action adventure film and marries it with Superheroes.

People must love boring.

And the extraneous & obvious audience viewing 'shiny objects' plot devices thrown in with red haired (forgettable) underwater princess, dinosaurs, trident seeking, sea monsters, and confusing multi sea kingdoms politics junk pile rehash ruined this film.

Boring .

The scenes are shot beautifully and the underwater world looks really stunning.

I literally walked out on this.

Its enjoyable to watch with actionpacked scenes.

One of the scenes that I felt particularly stunning was that the male and female protagonists encountered many monsters in the trench kingdom.

Utterly mind blowing in every way- sure the story is cliched and old as stories.

The Black Manta storyline goes nowhere and is totally pointless, they could have saved this classic villain for another film instead of diluting his contribution in this!

A complet waste of time and money.

Bad choice of actors, boring story, costumes & special effects all about.. .

The storyline is very predictable and the acting was really bad.

All the slow mo.. The terrible jokes...

James Wan certainly produced a better enjoyable DC film than the previous ones in the line.

So much is predictable.

So cliche and formulaic they might as well have casted Dwayne Johnson.

This movie relies on CGI way to much and lots of the movie is cheesy, boring and dull.

Boring and fell asleep.


There's no mystery or anything because of how generic and predictable it is.

Ambitous, stunning and amazing .

BUT I actually enjoyed it.

If you want to watch a visually stunning superhero movie with great music and a well written story, you will probably like this movie.

This movie was a failure, I waited a lot more of this, because of the trailer, this movie seemed to be epic, but it was boring and pointless, aquaman cartoon was so much better than this movie, and that is sad :/ A 7 SCORE IS SO UNFFAIR!!!

Overall I think it's worth the watch.

All CGI no story .

A wheezing, confused and sickly bore.

We really enjoyed it despite a few songs that were horrible!

It was enjoyable .

Don't waste your money, don't waste time.

With it's stunning visual effects, amazing costume designs, a perfect actor playing the superhero, and a new interesting world that I can't wait to see more of, Aquaman succeeded giving me one of the best cinema experience ever.

On the whole a very entertaining film with marvellous photo.

Aquaman is a flat and one-dimensional character with a predictable journey, which is fine.

Cliche AF & Absolute Garbage .

Really good movie overall, the visuals are breathtaking, battle scenes are awesome, theres some funny moments in there and plenty for everyone to enjoy.

A cliché story saved by CGI .

Too much CGI, boring, just awful really with a poor story.

A waste of two and a half hours of your life

This has to be one of the worst movies ever.

Stunning CGI, though!

Stay home Save your money and your time...

Visually excellent, Wan's direction clearly focuses on Momoa outshining the other characters, which he certaintly does, and individual artists being given liberty to amaze the audience with stunning details.

The story is boring too.

" *proceeds to waste a bunch of time* cases.

No story at all.

Under 10 don't waste your time .

This may be one of the worst movies I've ever seen!

A simplistic cartoon of a story, with shallow, two-dimensional villains and predictable cardboard cut-out heroes, speaking painfully-feeble dialogue between the frequent and overblown fight scenes.

The film is predictable at time, and has quite a few cliches, but even with a hard to follow setup (or hard to watch, depending on how you look at it) Aquaman leaves you cheering at the end by a pure sense of an underdog story line.

Even if you're a fan of Aquaman, please don't waste your time.

One of the worst movies I have ever seen .

"Aquaman" is a stunning miracle; the most visually oddball and mesmerizing big-budget superhero film the world has ever seen.

The plot is honestly a mess: over-complicated yet predictable.

The CGI were over the top but incredibly entertaining.

The movie was very boring and Amber Heard's acting was horrible and a directly irritating version of a character that clearly is inspired by H.

What a waste of time and money, undoubtedly the worst movie of the year.

The fact that Jason Momoa is a badass, snarky, and overall entertaining actor to watch in the role speaks to their awareness of "image management.

The first Orm Vs Momoa was bland and contained no gravity and the stakes felt artificial.

Visually it is fascinating 3 stars.

Even if my voice is shaking, I dare say it is the most eye-catching, wildly stunning sci-fi show I have seen into a big-impact Hollywood production since James Cameron's "Avatar," visually speaking.

Waste of time if popcorn was not eaten.

Boring tripe, even for lovers of dc and marvel comic adaptations.

This was fun Hollywood action fluff with a decent story and oodles of 'mammouthly' majestic and spectacularly cliché shots that came with such frequency it was a little bit corny and silly while mixing in intended dashes of humor.

Jason Mamoa is cool but the most of the film is dull.

Just awful and uninspiring.

predictable from start to finish, boring 2d characters, plot holes, and flat acting.


Don't waste your time with this one.

Props to DC for including every conceivable cliche in this movie, combined with terrible dialogue and writing.

It's all a bit silly but still immensely entertaining and rather inventive.

But not just the worst superhero movie I've seen in a while, but the worst movie in general I've seen in a while.

When he grows up, Arthur is convinced by stunning redhead Atlantean Mera (Heard) to claim his rightful place as king of Atlantis in order to prevent a battle between the sea folk and the land dwellers.

This movie was funny, action packed, wholesome, beautiful and fun.

The moments of "triumph" are so contrived and hokey that the obligatory orchestral score which swells up on cue is downright embarrassing to sit through.

The cheesy over the top moments just made this film more entertaining in my opinion.

The only reason some people BELIEVE this movie made sense was that it tried to follow every cliche of other poorly written superhero movie ever created.

Stunning and amazing underworld and of course Jason Momoa was super !

Latest addition to the DCEU is chock-full of conventional elements like action, globe-trotting adventure, romance, and cheeky humor (much of which you can see coming a mile away) yet somehow still manages to be engaging thanks to effective casting, a spectacular view of the aquatic world, and a good decision by director Wan to never take things too seriously.

Wan and his team created an entirely unique aquatic world for us, certainly embellished by Don Burgess, which is over-the-top, dazzling and exciting, absorbent and carefully designed, is pure visual ecstasy crowded with creatures, altered animals, Atlantic beasts and, why not, an octopus playing the drums.

I never write reviews on imdb, but don't waste your time and money on this one.

Completely uninteresting and sometimes ridiculous .

It's patchy and weirdly paced, with parts that have too much pointless detail while other sections rush ahead and ruin the moment or just execute it poorly.

Unappealing plot and such a waste of time.

Like many of its superhero predecessors it is so over done on constant unrelenting action, violence, and CGI that it rapidly became a real snoozer though impossible to actually fall asleep.

This is easily the most enjoyable film in the DCEU.

Has a very power rangers style approach to the wardrobe, the cg is crude in parts, the plot is basic and predictable.

I don't know why this is rated so high, when it's a complete waste of time.

This has to be one of thd worst movies i've ever watched.

People who write screen plays know one thing, how to make a boring movie.

The underwater talking and flying and armpit sniffing was unbearable.

The story is predictable just like every one of these dumb @$$ super duper hero movies and the ending was a bit anti climatic.

I mean, they even handled everybody being all floaty underwater VERY well, I mean the hair, clothing, jewelry, the detail is stunning, from big and small!

DC have such a wealth of characters and stoeylines to choose from but with the exception of wonderwoman, have really dropped the ball in a lot of areas Dont waste your money buying this film just wait for it to come out on freeview Such a shame as this film could have been awesome given the £160m budget!!

A linear but enjoyable storytelling that isn't convoluted with exposition heavy dialogues nor peppered with the 90's laugh track.

Worth watching it.

I am almost certain that if the CGI had been great, it would have changed my vision regarding the picture as a whole, but to me it was entertaining nonetheless.

It had lots of exciting moments.

Mera and Arthur going on a short quest to find the sword was fun and exciting and I really liked their chemistry.

Fascinating movie with stunning underwater effects and amazing performances by Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and all cast.

It was boring and cliched.

The movie is very cliched and you quickly get bored to see what's to come next after the first act.

The movie was boring, predictable, cheesy, and the effects were awful.

Every character, without fail, does a slow head turn to the camera and smoulders.

So predictable and so boring.

Fantastic action scenes, Mamoa's endless supply of fresh charisma, a compelling villain, a romance that feels genuine, what else could you ask for??

all in all the characters are without soul and sense, all in all it was a waste of time under water, where everybody can talk and shake out their hair and if you fight down there it's like up in the air, so the only difference is your hair will be flying and this makes it look like a roughed up version of the mermaid meets star wars meets the lego movie without lego figures.

I also found the underwater Atlantic conflict contrived and forced.

but this was BORING!

Please there must be Aquaman 2 please, i enjoyed it a lot wow wow wow

This is one of the most entertaining movies you will find .

I expected a lot more from this film, but it was truly terrible, almost every line was a clichè that you just wouldn't expect in 2019, complete lack of depth or excitement - a complete waste of time.

The ending song is nice and worth watching.

Enjoyable .

Humour was below average, action sequences were boring and the scenes would just cut off and not merge into one another.

All in all this film is beyond entertaining and anyone can have a good time seeing it.

Undersea world looks stunning and there are a lots of details.

It's so lame and boring.

Waste of Time .

One of the worst movies I have ever seen .

There is no element of surprise, no plot-twist, nothing.

Since the Dark Kight only Wonder Women has been entertaining in the DC universe.

Summary: A fresh and entertaining take on Aquaman's origin story.

Everything About this Movie was Thoroughly Entertaining.

Unwatchable .

Poor crap boring turned the movie off after 20 minutes yawn

One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.

This one had great elements - directing was good, visuals pretty well done considering, and I did find the main lead actor playing Aquaman entertaining.

Pointless characters, horrible CGI for this modern time, bad acting, I could continue.

Aquaman is fun and enjoyable movie that everyone will like.

It's entertaining if you can look past it's stupidity and put your brain on autopilot.

Boredom is the name of this film...

don't waste your time.

This movie was exciting in the theaters and even exciting on my 65" screen TV.

Extremely bad and cliché storyline.

Despite the harsh criticisms that the cinematic universe of DC has received over the last few years, they have managed to remain stable and again and again have tried to meet the expectations of their audience, yet again and again failed; now, as for Aquaman, it seems to be a green light to a ray of hope for the future of these movies, because they finally offer us something that is both entertaining and decent, without mediocrity or folly.

Slow down the speedy, soulless banter and get some good actors to carry the scenes.

Soooooo boring

Worst Movie Ever.

When Arthur's dad save his mom fron the sea, I know exactly what gonna happen yeah basic thing they get married etc.the story is sort of predictable no brainer.

Overall an entertaining movie with good story and performance, definitely lacking the punch though.

Weak but somewhat entertaining .

The movie is certainly like a live-action cartoon, and though sinks initially holds on to its grandiose bravado enough to become entertaining with the help of an underwater mishmash of medieval and scifi that works .

The bottom line is that this movie is fun and engaging, visually stunning with great action sequences supported by a compelling enough story without leaning too heavily on comic book tropes, all while staying very faithful to the source material.

The story was completely predictable from minute one.

The visuals are stunning.

Over all it was entertaining and no boring momens!

The majority of the pivotal points of the movie were very cliche.

This is a good movie and is worth watching.

So much of the same crash and burn CGI as in many other prior Marvel films it is quite frankly a bore.

It was an entertaining movie, which I can see again once blue-ray comes up.

Once you realise any injuries he sustains will barely slow him down, any sense of 'danger' fades away.

A waste of money, the producers and the people who watched it

At the end of the day a movie is supposed to be entertaining.

I'm sick of stupid/full special FX movies with poor developed characters, macho behaviour, nonsense scripting etc. This movie is like tons of low quality production in Hollywood, just to impress the public with visuals (that are good indeed, like all the superhero & sci-fi movies of the last 20 years), but in the end it is always the same s..t. Boring story with same construction and development...

Like any marvel movies it was enjoyable.

The acting was bland, the storyline predictable and the effects overwhelming.

This has to be the worst movie I've ever seen in my entire lifetime horrible who the hell is doing this

Overrated Bore .


The film is already confusing enough, with people not believing Atlantis exist, despite that there has two alien invasions, an goddess running around, and a enchantress attack.

I love this type of action movie (fantasy) and this one, though enjoyable, didn't meet my standards at all.

My daughter and I kinda looked at each other during hokey parts and were bored.

The plot and dialogue was neither believable or entertaining.

Trite .

The screenplay is formulaic.

Having said that the other moments in the film are also polar opposite to Black Panther, where in that movie slow dialogue heavy moments felt like they had real weight here they are usually laughable (and not when they mean to be).

Fast paced with a lot of action and highly enjoyable.

Also couldn't figure out if it was self parody or not, every cliche you can think of from other superhero movies is in here, won't list them all.

DId I fall asleep.

it jumps all over the place, it has every single super-hero cliche possible and a ton of things just dont make, they just dont.

Many viewers are hating this movie based on their personal opinions like bad story, few superstars, Jason Momoa's bad acting, slow SFX etc. It is true that just like tipical Marvel or DC movies, the count of superstars are very less in this movie and that didn't made this movie bad in my view.

Stunning .

Despite its cliched storyline and hit or miss characters, Aquaman might be the most entertaining DCEU venture next to Shazam, although this one is more entertaining from how nutty it all is.

There is no real plot, we are told the outcome in the first 3 minutes, Nicole Kidman has a fish suit that appears to age, there is no real explanation of what she had been doing for the 20 odd years that she went off grid.

The visuals are stunning.

I mean, im laughing at how cliche it is.

It has beautiful cgi and scenery, the action is intense, and the story is lovely.

Ho hum.


Twenty minutes in and I'm already bored.

So, what we're left with a film that reminds me of the quite tacky, yet often entertaining, superhero movies of the early 2000s, before Disney bought Marvel and turned comic book superheroes to the latest cinematic craze.

Terribly cliche dialogue.

The worst movie ever if you see anyone that give this 10 points it must be his first movie.

Too much cliché .

How they must do the underwater look is intriguing.

The writing is poor, the screenplay is poor, the cgi is fantastic, the acting is bland, and the movie lacks any memorable moments except for the eye candy fight near the end of the movie.

Dull .

In James Wan's adaption of DC's classic Athalntean superhero Aquaman, the focus is clearly on entertaining fight scenes, vibrant underwater settings, and some non-imaginary one-liners, with less so on storytelling, pacing narrative, and dialogue that doesn't make you cringe.

A great coming together cast, an engaging young director plus a skilled producer on a budget.

Trash lame cheap cliche .

Full of every poor movie cliche in the book including a "car" chase done underwater in fish subs.

It was filled with mostly stupid violence, crashing through walls, blowing each other up, constant fighting and destroying ancient Roman cities, subs, Atlantis, etc.. and because of all the violence, it was mostly boring.

Sadly, a lot of the corny exposition given throughout the movie is highly repetitive.

The story was predictable.

The film is unpredictable and sometimes action abruptly ends tranquil moments.

As of right now, the main plot is kinda thin, bland, and generic.

The CGI is beautiful, but the plot is boring.

Honestly this is utterly dreadful, whatever you don, don't waste any money buying this on VOD or DVD / Blu-ray.

My wife fell asleep and I really want my time and money back.

I like Jason Momoa, he's very entertaining and one of those actors who is very easy to watch.

The movie was boring.

'Aquaman' is visually stunning!

The effects are decent and the ocean looks pretty, but the bad acting and bland seen-it-before storyline overshadows any positives.

The scenes with the Trench were incredible and very engaging.

I also probably would have enjoyed it more if dolphins dubbed in all the dialogue.

It's actually possible to make thrilling action movies without loads of killing.

The plot was convoluted and contrived.

The problem with all those superheroes flicks and their spin-offs is the fact that most flicks are way too long and do have a mediocre storyline.

1) Terrible Dialogue 2) Typical Zack Snyder overuse of CGI 3) A plot as thin as paper 4) Predictable from the start 5) Barely any character development so you never truly care who lives and who dies.

Bad acting, terrible lines, poor cgi and boring storyline .

In the interest of full disclosure though - I walked out of Avatar because I thought it was ridiculous and unwatchable as well, so take my opinion with a grain of salt if that is your kind of movie.

Nevertheless, I'm willing to dip into uncharted waters and say, this movie is whale of a time worth watching, even if its story is just a small drop in the ocean that didn't sail smoothly.

) than Snyder's dark, grim and rather dull efforts this far.

This Aquaman movie has to be one of the most overly cheesy and boring movies I've ever seen.

Dragged out story Nicole Kidman looked like a wax work dummy too many unimportant charaters.

Don't waste any time with this movie

Enjoyable movie .

Sorry, I fell asleep.

Ok we expected to see a cool movie with a super hero but instead we got aquaman with superpowers in unbelievable movie settings, boring storyline and really, sorry, bad special effects.

Effects were breathtaking.

Nicole Kidman was actually pointless in this film - anyone could've played her character for the little she did.

"Aquaman" (2018) was big, dumb, very spectacular and very entertaining.

In fact, they just might be up there with the worst movies I have ever seen.

As others have already said, it was predictable.

Terible movie, poor acting, awful CGI, boring plotline .

The music score is horrendous and made felt like a 90's action movie The costume design made it feel like a reallt over budget power rangers episode The cast overall id say was well chosen but no matter how good they were, they couldnt save the souless and predictable script from leaving us cringing every few minutes.

Way too predictable and cliché.

I guess movies like this get made because of the profits to the studios and the investors, regardless of how trite these over the top superhero films have become.

Some of the most cliche and hackneyed dialogue ever to grace a movie.

That was unwatchable.

This is a trippy watch but so enjoyable.

The storyline feels mindlessly lightweight with it's cliché violence and predictable romance.

But, man, was that story lame and cliché.

Don't waste your time on this.


And the cliche love-inducing moments make your eyes roll.

Up There (in my Worst Movie List) .

Boring movie.

But, if you want to watch an entertaining and fun movie that can keep you engaged for 2 & 1/2 hours, then you may enjoy this movie.

Ppl love boring sea movies.

Overall Aquaman is predictable and underwhelming.

Jason Momoa is charming, but literally all dialogues and the plot are flat/predictable/generic.

Predictable storyline embellished with eye candy (CGI and the leading ladies, Kidman and Heard)

Trite dialogue and a stereotypical plot line, lots of mindless action and I'd have expected better from some of the actors who were in the film.

It's cliché, corny, has too much CG, too many colors, is weirdly paced, so many explosions and screams and a childish plot...

And in the hands of the director, the final product achieves an unexpected and surprising result.


There are great movies within this line of story (superheroes) and this one isn't as funny, as exciting nor as beautiful.

Corny, predictable, boring, cgi dependant rubbish .

In addition, the film has a rather pointless subplot centering on Black Manta seeking revenge towards Aquaman, and it barely has much connection to the progression of the film as a whole.

It was slightly boring.

Thankfully, I was able to fast forwarded most of the pointless battle scenes

Set in their extended universe, this fish out of water hero's journey story of a humanoid merman, Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) being reintroduce to his culture's origins in order to reclaim his birthright before his half-brother Ocean Master (Patrick Wilson) takes the throne & seek revenge on the surface world, was entertaining.

The colours and effects were very engaging.

It did have its moments, but it felt a bit "hasted" and the storyline was cliché.

) and, ignoring a few contrived plot details, a hugely entertaining romp.

However, the storyline was a bit confusing.

What makes the film passably entertaining is that director James Wan throws astonishing amounts of action at the wall, and much of it sticks (though not always together).

On the surface is everything you want from a popcorn movie: big fights that makes you yawn, sexy topless superhero, sibling rivalry, silly villains with crappy plans, awkward moment of comedy.

This is an enjoyable movie.

The action scenes are like an action packed shampoo commercial you know how they be flinging their hair about?

Cliche to the max and a god awful storyline.

Yeah, this film had every superhero cliché ever.

Spectacular effects sunk by a predictable and cliched plot.

I would rather go to the dentist than sit through that snore fest.

Overall, I think it's a important piece in the DC universe, but the movie was simply boring.

It had fun action, a brisk pace that took you all over the place, a light tone that didn't take itself too seriously, enjoyable characters to go on an adventure with, and breathtakingly beautiful colours.

Maybe he is excellent in that, but he is unwatchable in Aquaman, delivering his lines in a contrived, shallow manner.

Adding to the boredom are forgettable cardboard villains and a weak script similar to Black Panther about two brothers fighting for control of the kingdom.

Don't waste your time .

It's certainly better than many of DC's dark and dreary superhero movies, a visually impressive treat for the eyes (and I'm not just talking about Amber Heard in her green skintight costume!

It was so predictable.

This film had every cliché moment and cheesy line in the book.

Some of the visual ideas are breathtaking, the CGI is incredible and Jason mamoa and amber heard have charisma to spare, unfortunately what they have to work with is a script not even worthy of a bad B movie and a storyline so hackneyed and obvious it will literally make you groan in places.

Spoiler alert, this movie is terrible and i fell asleep twice watching it!

My partner and son enjoyed it lol.

The visual, actions, characters, & message of the movie can make it 10/10 but movie is little bit boring (I mean this movie need more funny things or anti mainstream jokes).

Tacky & ridiculous but entertaining .

Bad directing and bad script make this 2 and a half hour cliche feat unbearable.

It's a fast paced, thrilling adventure that puts the DCEU back on track!

Visually stunning colors and creatures with a "fast furious" action tempo.

The plot twists, while predictable, are still enjoyable for the most part.

However, what made Aquaman extra enjoyable to me is that it does not fight the culture war, except for a soft jibe at polluting the oceans.

So its enjoyable to watch...

I fell asleep 3 times trying to get through this movie.

I enjoyed it and liked all the characters apart from Black Manta who was a bit poor and under developed.

Contrived , cliche, predictable, .

acting was bad , writing trite...

Don't waste your time on this movie.

Probably worst movie ever.


Still as a whole it is more consistent and definitely more enjoyable and well executed than BvS and Justice League, so it's safe to say that DCEU is finding what it needs.

There were no laggy, over-drawn out sequences, it was interesting visuals and effects.

Bad cgi, boring story and very cheap dialogs.

Damm this is second best bc film it's just cgi mess with a boring story line.

But I'll take that over something boring any day of the week.

Stunning visuals, not a moment of bore, frenzy pace and a "coolness factor" turned up to eleven.

A wheezing, sickly bore .

Utterly Boring and Cliche .

Intense .

The best bit was getting bored and looking up Moana comparison memes (Atlantis is shiiinyyyyyy).

From underwater cities to breathtaking landscapes this is one spectacular looking movie.

The visual effects were so breathtaking.

This is another Hollywood formulaic superhero junk that completely misrepresents the core philosophy of Atlantis.

enjoyable despite being fairly routine .

I was really hoping that this was going to be an enjoyable movie.

Major disappointment and frankly just plain boring...


This film is worth watching if you're a film student whom needs to know what not to do.

The story is almost non-existent, predictable and filled with cliches.

Sound stage is wide and energetic making for a truly exciting surround sound experience.

A bit like Black Panther the film is rooted in Hamlet and when it sticks to its royal drama structure it is compelling.

Started off ok, but quickly turned into an over CGI'ed dull movie with terrible acting.

Complete waste of my time and a waste of money for the people who produced it or pay to see it.

Not a single time I thought "cool", all the time I thought "hey this is like shooting scenes in the 70s: long, drawn out, completely meaningless without anything really happening for minutes".

The best thing about this is that it is a fast paced paced light hearted adventure under water.

All this makes the dullest film I've seen since the other DC disappointer Man of Steel.

This film is all about CGI special effects, which (for me) are quite boring.

- But as Ryan Coogler diligently proposed to make a stand against racism, politics, Hollywood's diversity and some other highly important social matters, Wan loosens up and never takes the material too seriously; it's simple: a silly, funny, over-the-top fantasy actioner with two specific purposes on its mind: a message of solving your problems peacefully and an act of redemption for DC; its fuzzy proceedings are what makes it so enjoyable, so strangely magnetic and carefreely brilliant.

Waste of time.

Visually stunning.

Great: Visuals (costumes, set pieces, and sfx primarily)Good: Momoa & the final actAverage: Ocean Master & Black Manta, Sound editing, and KidmanBad: Patrick WilsonAwful: Plot (convoluted and illogical), Almost all Dialogue (simple, stereotypical, and contrived)I personally have not seen a film with such a massive gap in quality between the visuals and writing.

I thought it was very entertaining, funny ," Jason" and a great origin story.

Don't waste your money .

Some of the scenes looked great, especially on the big screen, and the few witty moments were delivered well from Momoa but I found the core of the plot to be predictable and a bit annoying in places.

Visually stunning with a great storyline and great actors add up to a fun action-packed entertainment


This is a common and quite predictable movie with a poor story.

Visually Stunning and Spectacular 💙 💐 .

The excitement was quickly replaced with boredom.

As the movie went on, I found myself bored a times and able to predict scenes fairly consistently.

Definitely worth watching a couple of times.

Dialogue is so cliche

Everything about it was entertaining and left my attention closely tied to the screen.

Literally walked out of the theater.

Engaging and moves along at great pace.

Also,the fight scenes are very boring ,just like real people fighting in front of you.

Phew, one of the worst movies i have seen.

Extremely predictable too.

Terrible acting, terrible plot, nothing makes sense and I don't find the special effect moving or shaking, boring computerized movie, changes from he's got a nice life to being chased around by the all of a sudden bad guys (whoever they are).

These are boring and over played.

When a "horror" movie can make me fall asleep, it's an epic fail...

Very disjointed, almost as though 3 children had conspired to outdo each other then random bits of each story were cobbled together.

I also think there was a lot of cliche moments, which I feel is typical DC to do.

Now, the story was generic, the pacing was off, the dialogue was more cheesy then it needed to be.

Worst movie ever!!.

I fell asleep.

Awesome actors, Confusing storyline .

Just a rush job CGI fest with no plot, that attempts to coincide money from the superhero dollar created in the last 10 years.

I found Mera to enjoyable to watch, despite the controversies surrounding the actress's personal life.

The visuals were outstanding, the movie moved along briskly and the action scenes were always entertaining.
