The movie was fun with great visuals. here are some random thoughts. I loved Kidman and the cute dog at the start. That dog is a star! Also I really bought and felt the scene where Aquaman is reunited with his mother. That was really cool and emotional. The opening on the submarine was a great intro for the swagger of the character. I did not totally buy the romance between Aquaman and Mera, it developed a little too quickly for the big smooch moment as Mera seemed to be more about the quest/family than love, but I will roll with it . I preferred the brother as the main villain to the Manta thing, but he was useful in the story. I agree with others that some of the soundtrack numbers made me chuckle as to their fitability to the scene. I wonder if they will try to develop the personality of Aquaman over its sequels, though he had a nice arc of not wanting the crown and then owning it when he passed that final task. he was the king. some of the historical exposition was difficult to understand or keep up with as the sound was overpowering and it was hard to hear, so I missed a bit of it Overall it was worth watching on the big screen. Jason can grow with the part if he is given more opportunities. I think he is Aquaman now and though some like making comparisons as to level of acting etc, he did enough to claim the character in my eyes.
