Other members of the cast – Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren – offer a swimming stew of friendship, revolt, power struggles, jealousy, and more. The key to survival for underwater Atlantis and the surface world is the Trident of Atlan. Aquaman’s quest to find it and put it to good use is fun and the plot weaves in and out of seaweed, fish, and seahorses carrying underwater knights. The movie effects are well done as life bobs along in the water – bubbles, waves, and more.
Jason Momoa carries this movie and is a worthy addition in the DC pantheon. He swaggers, grins, and can hoist a Trident above all others. No need to hold your breath for too long. Treat yourself to a huge tub of popcorn and dive into Aquaman, the movie.
