Once home to the most advanced civilization on Earth, the city of Atlantis is now an underwater kingdom ruled by the power-hungry King Orm. With a vast army at his disposal, Orm plans to conquer the remaining oceanic people — and then the surface world. Standing in his way is Aquaman, Orm’s half-human, half-Atlantean brother and true heir to the throne. With help from royal counselor Vulko, Aquaman must retrieve the legendary Trident of Atlan and embrace his destiny as protector of the deep.

Aquaman is an action filled movie with lots of characters that make a big impact on the film. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a rating of 78%. IMDb rated this film 7.5/10 stars. The New York Times said that the movie “Aquaman is so much like parts of Thor and Black Panther and Avatar… and so reliant upon an ancient British legend that you don’t know why the people who made this movie bothered.” Michael Ordona, from Common Sense Media, says that “like Wonder Woman, this adventure marks a move in the right direction for the Justice League/DC Extended Universe”.

In my opinion, the movie was amazing! Each actor was fantastic and portrayed their character beautifully. Although it took a little long to get to the real action, when it arrived it was phenomenal.
