Aquaman crossed $1 billion world wide at the box office a couple weeks ago. I can’t believe this movie topped The Dark Knight. Is Aquaman a good film though? Definitely not. Is it a fun film? Sure. You can have both though, and wish this movie did. Here’s what I liked about the film and what I didn’t like (more fun).
WHAT I LIKED
First we’ll talk about the quick stuff, what I liked about the film.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
Ok now for the fun part, how ridiculous some of the things in this movie are.
HOW IT SHOULD OF GONE.
Here’s how the movie should have gone. First, Green Goblin tells Arthur directly that the canister does contain the last will and testament of the dead king and the location of the trident. Aquaman and Mera then go find Nicolas Cage and now Aquaman actually becomes National Treasure 3! Cut out Black Manta and give all the extra screen time to Mr. Benjamin Franklin Gates as he travels around the planet with Arthur and Mera, solving ancient puzzles and journeying to the center of the earth! Upon finding the trident, Arthur doesn’t put on the dead king’s clothes and he doesn’t let the Kraken murder all his future subjects. The fighting stops because they all see the trident. Ocean Master(OM) out of jealousy attacks Arthur. We still get the cool final showdown.There mother shows up still all in tatters from having just gotten rescued and quells OM’s hate and anger. Aquaman wins and negotiates a repayment plan with the surface leaders for the terrorism that decimated the world's economy by destroying all the ships and oil rigs that were in the ocean earlier in the movie. The queen goes to meet Arthur's father wearing a new hip age appropriate style. END
