Seems about right to me. With the exception of it’s VFX’s, which are spectacular, it doesn’t do anything exceptional great..but at the same time, besides a few campy moments, it doesn’t do anything I would deem bad either. It’s your average run-of-the-mill cbm origin packaged with beautiful visuals to sell it, and guess what? Consumers bought it. ..it’s biggest win imo tho is completely turning around the Aquaman character in eyes of the masses. He’s no longer the a$$ end of jokes and puns to the general audience, which means they’ll come back for sequels, and viola; money for Warners.
Aquaman was fantastic in my opinion. It did exactly what it had to do. Provided amazing graphics, amazing action, and decent character development for Arthur. It is a movie you WANT to see and ENJOY watching. I think that DC needs to focus on what made AM so successful, and continue to follow that mold. DC is where I started, and I'm praying that their cinematic universe will finally bring forth what it is capable of bringing.
It wasn't "great" but it was good. The same thing I've always said about The Avengers. I guess if forced, I think The Avengers was a little better. But Aquaman has the luxury of not being deemed the "most amazing thing ever put on film" tag The Avengers got at the time it was released. So, The Avengers is not seen the same way now as it was back in 2012. Most folks have a lower opinion of it now compared to then, though most will still like it. Aquaman is just seen as a good time at the movies, period. 6 years from now, it'll be thought of the same way. What I'm saying is if The Avenges can make billion, then why not Aquaman? BTW, it's certainly not "lucky". I remember hearing on many a Youtube channel that it's Holiday release date was going to doom it, thanks to all the competition it would get.
People seem to forget Aquaman has steadily risen in public standing. Superfriends was a LONG time ago. With Justice League, Young Justice, several animated films including one dedicated to his canon, Injustice, and video games, Aquaman definitely went from "I'd never watch a movie about Aquaman" to "I'd watch it, I'm curious"
