Launched in 2018, the film tells “the story of Arthur Curry (Momoa), half human and half Atlantean, who takes him on the journey of a lifetime, one that will not only force him to confront who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of what he was born to be , a king”.

In addition to Momoa, the film featured Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren It is Temuera Morrison.

With 65% approval from critics and 72% from the public in Rotten Tomatoesthe consensus is that it is a fun and unapologetically ridiculous work, offering a CGI superhero spectacle with energetic action with an emphasis on good old-fashioned fun.

For the TIME Magazine, “The film’s biggest selling points are its affable, bear-hugging spirit and its lush, wacky visuals.” Already the Slate highlights that “There are parts of Aquaman that are so wonderfully strange that it is surprising to see them in a blockbuster saga”.

James Wan in charge of the film was also the target of praise, from “Wan’s descent into comic book fantasy is almost incredible, even his frequent mistakes brimming with an infectious, giddy fervor that is almost wonderful.”

O Chicago Reader also highlights the technical work of the film, “The widescreen images of the veteran cinematographer Don Burgess seduce and the production design of Bill Brzeski makes a powerful impression.” However, critics were not convinced by the film’s “next time, someone please give Momoa and company some memorable dialogue” pitch.

Jason Momoa will be return to our screens as the iconic character in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” on December 21st.
