Waste of time.

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

A waste of two and a half hours of your life

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

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

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

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

Boringly Dated - A Conan the Barbarian Revival With Ocean Wallpapers .

So much potential but the dialogue and script story was so unbearable!

Amazing movie enjoyed it so much .

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

Simply cause of stunning undersea world.

Enjoyable and refreshing .

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

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

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

'Aquaman' is visually stunning!

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

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

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.

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

Don't waste your money .

This is a trippy watch but so enjoyable.

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

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

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

Momoa has all the charisma of a wet lettuce, Heard and Wilson spend far too long on some seriously long, overly theatrical combat scenes that are clearly meant to imply they are floating (rather than swinging from a wire in front of a green screen) and Willem Dafoe looks like, well, a fish out of water.

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

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

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

It was enjoyable .

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

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

The movie was very boring and uninteresting.

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

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

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

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

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

The sequences are laborious and dull.

acting was bad , writing trite...

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.

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.

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

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

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

It's so lame and boring.

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

Dull .

How they must do the underwater look is intriguing.

The scenes with the Trench were incredible and very engaging.

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

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.

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.

The fight scenes were boring.

My partner and son enjoyed it lol.

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

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.

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.

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

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!!

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

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

Visually it is fascinating 3 stars.

Stunning CGI, though!

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

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).

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

I also found the underwater Atlantic conflict contrived and forced.

Extremely bad and cliché storyline.

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

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!

This is quite possibly the worst movie ever created.

Literally walked out of the theater.

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

Phew, one of the worst movies i have seen.

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

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.

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

Up There (in my Worst Movie List) .

The whole plot is rubbish, very predictable and not even worth summarising.

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.

Bland mushy effects.

One of the worst movies ever made.

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

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

Absolutely Bland .

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.

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.

Stunning .

Engaging and moves along at great pace.

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

Don't waste your time on this movie.

Unwatchable .

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

Worst of all, this whole film was predictable.

Entertaining movie.

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

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

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

Don't waste your time with this one.

It really is a gripping watch from start to finish.

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

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

don't waste your time.

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.

On the whole a very entertaining film with marvellous photo.

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

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

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.

It was so predictable.

I mean, im laughing at how cliche it is.

Ho hum.

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

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).

Visually stunning, breathtaking, with a surprisingly entertaining story and charismatic characters .

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

Extremely predictable too.

The colours and effects were very engaging.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Cliche AF & Absolute Garbage .

Unbelievably dull and lacking substance .

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

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

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

Bore off 😴

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

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.

Visually Stunning and Spectacular 💙 💐 .

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.

Aquaman is fun and enjoyable movie that everyone will like.

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

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

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

The visuals are stunning.

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.

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

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

The story was completely predictable from minute one.

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

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

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.

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

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 .

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

One of the worst movies I have ever seen .

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

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

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.

Yeah, this film had every superhero cliché ever.

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!

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

As others have already said, it was predictable.

- 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.

The CGI was slow & terrible.

The story is predictable.

Awesome actors, Confusing storyline .

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.

Probably worst movie ever.

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.

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

Weak but somewhat entertaining .

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

Stay home Save your money and your time...

Yawn.. worst superhero movie ever.

The two villains have quite compelling background and convincing motives.

Enjoyable .

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

This has to be one of the worst movies ever.

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

Corny, predictable, boring, cgi dependant rubbish .

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

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

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

Aquaman Is A SELF-AWARE, OVER THE TOP, CHEESY, COLOURFUL ACTION PACKED PIECES OF AWESOMENESS (And Fish) .

My kids enjoyed it though.

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

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

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

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

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.

Poor crap boring turned the movie off after 20 minutes yawn

Boring.

Don't waste your time .

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

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

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

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.

Boredom is the name of this film...

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.

Spectacular effects sunk by a predictable and cliched plot.

Don't waste your time

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

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!!!

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

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

The story was predictable.

The visuals are stunning.

A wheezing, confused and sickly bore.

Worst movie ever!!.

Every fight or chase scene is superbly entertaining.

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.

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.

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.

Terribly cliche dialogue.

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

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

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

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.

Predictable.

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

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.

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.

Very entertaining !

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Enjoyable movie .

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

The plot was convoluted and contrived.

Don't waste any time with this movie

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.

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.

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

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

Worth watching it.

Like any marvel movies it was enjoyable.

Major disappointment and frankly just plain boring...

This is an enjoyable movie.

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

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

boring...

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

Soooooo boring

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

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.

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

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

enjoyable despite being fairly routine .

What a waste of perfectly good time .

His charm kept the movie entertaining.

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.

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.

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

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.

Everything About this Movie was Thoroughly Entertaining.

Boring dialogue and too much politics.

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

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.

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

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.

So much is predictable.

BUT I actually enjoyed it.

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.

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

Entertaining.

Don't waste your time on this.

The movie really is stunning.

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

The story is boring too.

Totally unbearable.

A complet waste of time and money.

Just one more pointless review .

Under 10 don't waste your time .

Unwatchable .

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).

Visually exciting .

Overall I think it's worth the watch.

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

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

DId I fall asleep.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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...

Good entertaining 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.

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.

Way, way too long too.

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.

However, the storyline was a bit confusing.

Worst Movie Ever.

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

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

Very boring and pointless because its too cliche with a bad ending.

Again, great at confusing the audience.

Contrived , cliche, predictable, .

Sorry, I fell asleep.

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

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

Predictable!

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.

Its enjoyable to watch with actionpacked scenes.

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.

Waste of Time .

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

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

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

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

Visually stunning.

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

A cliché story saved by CGI .

dull over did special effect .

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.

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

This is a good movie and is worth watching.

The introductory scene to The Aquaman character is breathtaking.

Enjoyable .

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

A wheezing, sickly bore .

BORING, SUPERFICIAL, WAAAAY TOO LONG.

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

Effects were breathtaking.

Way too predictable and cliché.

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

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.

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

I was so bored!

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

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

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

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

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

Overrated Bore .

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

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

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!!

Boring .

Spectacular, dumb, fun and entertaining .

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

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

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

Enjoyed it .

It was boring and cliched.

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

Boring movie.

These are boring and over played.

Utterly Boring and Cliche .

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!

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

The CGI were over the top but incredibly entertaining.

Unwatchable .

Trash lame cheap cliche .

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.

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

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

The ending song is nice and worth watching.

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.

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

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.

The plot and dialogue was neither believable or entertaining.

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

Tacky & ridiculous but entertaining .

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.

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

So predictable and so boring.

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

Over all it was entertaining and no boring momens!

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

Intense .

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

Twenty minutes in and I'm already bored.

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".

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

This is easily the most enjoyable film in the DCEU.

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

Dialogue is so cliche

A thoroughly entertaining ride.

dull.

Ambitous, stunning and amazing .

), 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.

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

Too much cliché .

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

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

Bad cgi, boring story and very cheap dialogs.

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

Zzzzzzzzz

A waste of time

Puddleman is surprisingly entertaining .

Trite .

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

Waste of time if popcorn was not eaten.

Slightly entertaining big budget B movie.

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.

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

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.

💀 It's super corny, super cheesy with all the annoying cliché runs from a 1980 action film.

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

Just awful and uninspiring.

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).

All CGI no story .

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

I literally walked out on this.

Worth watching despite knowing Aquaman's origin story .

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.

The visual effects were so breathtaking.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Totally boring.

Ignore the desensitized, crybaby bores that have no imagination.

That's entertaining!

The third act of the film is boring as well.

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

The movie was boring.

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

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

Unappealing plot and such a waste of time.

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

it was fascinating .

Definitely worth watching a couple of times.

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.

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

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.

YAWN!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Boring?

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

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.

but this was BORING!

Fast paced with a lot of action and highly enjoyable.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

So its enjoyable to watch...

Boring and fell asleep.

I fell asleep.

Very Entertaining .

Story is good, but was little predictable.

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.

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

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

It is long and boring.

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

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

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.

It was slightly boring.

Well worth watching .

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.

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

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

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

Predictable.

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 .

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

The movie has its moments but sort of bland.

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

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.

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

Overall Aquaman is predictable and underwhelming.

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

The excitement was quickly replaced with boredom.

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

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.

The CGI is beautiful, but the plot is boring.

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

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