Who lives in a pineapple under the…. wait.. that’s the wrong one. Aquaman, the king under the ocean. The latest superhero flick to grace our local cinema screens. It has grossed a near 1 BILLION dollars worldwide ($940 million to be exact as of today). If you haven’t seen it yet, first, shame on you. Second, is it worth your time?
Here is my short and sweet review (WITH ZERO SPOILERS!!!!). Ready?
It is the worst and greatest movie I’ve seen recently. That’s right. It’s the worst. And it’s the greatest. It had a rich and solid story. The writing was campy and silly more often than I care to admit. For every awesome part of the film, you are greeted with a hokey one-liner.
Aquaman is the superhero you didn’t know you need in your life. You didn’t know you needed an underwater war scene to complete your movie going experience until you see this movie. There are plenty of silly flaws with the movie, but the overall feel after leaving the theater was, “hey, that was a great show.”
It’s worth your dollars.
