WHAT I LIKE?

After the success of Wonder Woman, Aquaman is another redeeming film for the DC Universe. What I like about Aquaman is its overall consistency considering that he is a superhero who spent most of his time underwater. Aside from its consistency, Aquaman lived up to its main plot material offering some impressive cinematic visuals & production design. As expected, the whole movie is full of CGI which is for me expected with the whole concept of this superhero film. Aside from its highly-entertaining action sequences, the film draws its strength from an effective narration down to impressive performances from Momoa, Kidman & Heard. Jason Momoap was born for the role. I couldn’t think for anyone in Hollywood who could play best for this role. For me, everything you need to expect from a superhero movie is here with Aquaman. With enough action, heartwarming scenes, this movie offers a decent popcorn entertainment. I really love the visuals of Atlantis and other kingdoms. The action sequences are very engaging too. The final battle was truly a remarkable visual feast. After all the disappointments of Fans from the recent DC Films, I hope they could give chance to Aquaman as much chance they gave for Wonderwoman.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

I hope they could improve more especially on the CGI Effects but generally, Aquaman is an impressive masterpiece.

WHAT I LIKE?

Justice League was a sign of relief after the disappointments of Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad. Overall, it was a movie that has a consistency in terms of superhero formula. It was actually faithful to its main source. This superhero universe made a mark with its brand of action and entertainment. The plot was easy to understand and it was smoothly narrated despite the pressure of introducing 3 new characters in the universe. With its short running time, it was entertaining and engaging most of the time. I loved Wonderwoman and The Flash in the film. The action sequences were good and there were some impressive visual engineering especially some of slow-motion scenes. Generally, I am pleased and I am looking forward for the next movie in the DC universe.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Justice League lack the charm and dynamism that Marvel invest long time ago in majority of their films. Because of its short running time, I feel like some of the elements were sacrificed. One of which is the character build-up of the Villain and the 3 new characters in the team. Also, how I wish the movie was less CGI-sh. There were some pretty bad visual editing. Hope they will improve this moving forward. But, I still loved Justice League.
