With a vast army at his disposal, Orm plans to conquer the remaining oceanic people -- and then the surface world.

With help from royal counselor Vulko, Aquaman must retrieve the legendary Trident of Atlan and embrace his destiny as protector of the deep.

Critic Review: 

This is an Aquaman film that needs lots more Aquaman and vastly less bombast. It’s visually wild and recklessly inventive, but the cast deserves better than to be cast adrift in a tempest of CGI. - Empire News

Jason Mamoa, combined with some insane action setpieces, make for convincing reasons to watch ‘Aquaman’-TOI news

It doesn't suck, but only if you're willing to sit through two hours of waterlogged world-building before the movie finally takes off- Variety News

Audience reviews: 

DC need to reboot the entire DC universe in my humble opinion as a lover of the world of DC since a kid who learned to read, write and speak through the medium of comics. Aquaman is a great example of a movie leading with special effects that are so sensational in their cartoonish execution as to lose all sense of realism, in the sense that none of it looks convincing, like the wooden acting, the CGI is synthetic, instead of endeavoring to copy Marvel's winning M.O, DC need to originate its own original take of a comic book universe that has become boring.

Audiences need to be able to relate to characters in some kind of way, even if they're archetypes, the problem with Aquaman is that there's no sense of threat, he's like Superman but the undersea version. The movie like so many others nowadays is driven by CGI, story, characters, and plot but a mere afterthought as if to justify this bloated, overlong, 'indefinite deal of nothing' being made in the first place, its budget could probably feed a starving nation for the next couple of sentences, so I don't think its too much to ask for at least a half decent movie, especially after the travesties like Suicide Squad, Man of Steel, Batman Vs Superman and Wonder Woman was okay but blew a major opportunity to ground the DC universe in at least one decent story.

I was so excited to Aquaman, the comparisons to Thor did Not put me off, the First Thor movie was great fun, the second was drivel, the third was exhilarating as was Civil War which I loved, anyway I digress, Warner Bros needs to do what DC do when they relaunch their entire line of comics when they realize their current direction is alienating the very fans they're looking to get into the movie theatres in the first place.

I also loved Star Trek Beyond(although the motorbike crescendo climax was weak) so had high expectations ref James Wan, he's a master of epic action sequences but after a while, one becomes desensitized to spectacle and just wants a good old fashioned yard that does not ramble on like a feel-good acid trip that goes bad right from the starting gate.

Jason Momoa is the best thing, in fact, the movie should have been a character study of him, in the style of Chris Nolan but with the beautiful world that James Wan's special effects team conjured up(no pun intended).

Having written the latter, (I haven't summarised the plot because there isn't one), I'd still suggest You go and see because some of the visuals on display are batshit crazy in a good but extremely cartoonist way.

Warner Bros needs to start hiring people who have the same love for their heroes/heroines as Marvel does for theirs!

that is an insult to Us geeks who grew up on this stuff - Mathew H

I never enjoyed anything directed by James Wan. Perhaps he is not good at making things better on the "Surface " but Aquaman is indeed a fabulous fairytale. 
It is undoubtedly Mr. Wan's best. 
When a lighthouse keeper finds the wounded Queen of Atlantis, the fairytale begins. They share a tea and end up later in bed. Their son Arthur is special. In fact very special and You see it when a school of fish back him up when young Arthur was being bullied by three guys. He grows up with his father. Where has his mother gone? Find it by yourself. 51-year-old Kidman is incredible as Atlanta. She is fast, sharp and super fit to do even the fight scenes convincingly. Amber Heard plays the red-haired Mera and she looks gorgeous. There is a rooftop chase in Italy in the movie, which is mind-blowing as Amber leaps from one roof to another breaking walls and roofs of a hundred houses. 
But the heart of the movie rests in it's Hero, the true King, The Aquaman, the protector of the deep. Jason Momoa is absolutely genuine. I cannot imagine anyone else as Aquaman. He has that great physique, a charm and an outstanding energy to steal your heart and you would definitely feel rooted for him. 
James Wan has created stunning fairytale moments under the sea in this movie. The colors and creatures, the fish and fights, the war and their wrath... everything underwater is stupendous. But the best thing I felt was the way how the dialogues being dubbed differently underwater and on the surface. 
It's one of the best superhero movies. It has nothing that you cannot predict, it does not have twists and turns and still, it just doesn't bore you.
Watch it, you wouldn't regret. I had fun and I'm sure you will surely have it too.

Going with three and a half stars for Momoa and his Aquaman. - Midhun

This movie has great action setpieces but still, sometimes it does feel that the movie is not ending. The action is the only thing that will keep you at the edge of your seat.
