    Just as good as I hoped it would be.

    One of the best DCEU films, and as good as some of MCU movies I think. The DC has stepped up their game - this is another level. Never had I expected this movie will this be good, after the Justice League and Batman V Superman because those movies are done and let's forget about those. This is the most ambitious comic book movie I've ever seen so far. Finally a movie that DC fans deserves, this film is just beautiful within the cinematography, visuals, also the action scenes. The action scenes kinda remind me of Romanticism painting, it is visually stunning and breathtakingly beautiful. James Wan did a marvelous job for Aquaman. The cast are outstanding, outstanding performances. I don't think any actors can take the role of Aquaman better than Jason Momoa. The atmosphere of this film looks magnificent vibrant and has high-quality then any DCEU film. Finally we can see the light after those dark days. It has clear motivations for both heroes and villains, pretty solid. But, DCEU really need to fix their poor lines. The writing isn't the best - some dialogues are still cheesy and awkward. Nothing new for the plot, but it is simply enough - almost the same with any superhero film - save the world, family issues, etc. But it has a great message about polluting the water. Also the film scoring and soundtrack was a miss. And I don't see how and why Black Manta is the best villains, his story kinda flat and lacking for me. Black Manta has daddy issues seems not enough for me to think he is the best villain. After all, this is highly recommended movie for superhero movie fans. Also you have to watch it in an 4K. Worth it!

    Great Looking 4K Blu Ray

    I saw this movie in theaters and it was awesome and loved it. This is DC's best movie in my opinion. Good narrative, great visuals and action. Jason Momoa is the perfect Aquaman with his rebellious sense of humor, Amber Heard (wow so beautiful) steals the movie as Aquaman's brothers wife Mera. I like the narrative involving Aquaman's brother King Orm. Of course we had to wait some years for filmmakers to actually create these underwater effects, because it couldn't have been done 5 or 8 years ago. Maybe it could have? The budget was $160 million, almost 200 million! But, again, the effects look great. I gave the movie 4 stars out of 4 but I am also reviewing the 4K Blu Ray and I must say that this is the best looking 4K Blu Ray I've seen so far. I was almost off the 4K Bandwagon but this brought me back in a big way. I love new technology and I hope 4K can survive but some 4K Blu Rays look OK whereas Blu rays look awesome already. Not for the Aquaman 4K Blu Ray, the scenes that shine brighter are the IMAX Shot sequences (All the underwater scenes of course). If you're STILL looking to impress your friends with a 4K Blu ray then I would definitely recommend this 4K Blu Ray.

    The establishment movie for the Aquaman character does a fine job with his background and his superpowers. Watching via 4k UHD Blu-Ray is a real pleasure. Wonders are done in the many CGI underwater shots with the colors and lights. The audio also sounds great. As it is a “superhero” kind of movie, there’s a lot of fun in the story with Aquaman saving various people and fighting the “bad guys”. The actors are fine, but particular mention goes to Nicole Kidman in a small role as Aquaman’s mother, and Willem Defoe as sometime mentor and trainer. Momoa performs as expected in the title role, and Amber Heard is a pleasant surprise as female lead. As expected, this is no “Citizen Kane”, but for a superhero film, there is a lot to like. There is humor, and only a few things that were too over the top for me. As a genre superhero movie, it’s fine, maybe 4.5 stars. An enjoyable entertainment, well worth the time. I believe that those who stream this movie are missing a lot of excellence compared to the optical disc 4K Blu-ray product.

    An Amazing New World

    Aquaman is probably one of the most impressive movies visually you'll see. With a lot of "underwater" scenes you'll forget what is shot practically and with CGI. Beyond the visuals, this movie feels like a DC movie should. You get Aquaman's past to get started and begin to see how Arthur is a virtual fish out of water. Half human and half Atlantean, he is drawn to protect the sea after being trained in his powers by one of his mother's closest allies. Aquaman also brings in his two most iconic adversaries: Black Manta and his half brother Ocean Master. The latter wants to be the undisputed king of Atlantis... and to destroy mankind of land for polluting his oceans. The story goes into Arthur needing to fight his brother for control of the kingdom to save mankind from an enemy most have no idea even exists. If you've enjoyed the other DC movies, you should enjoy this one. I would probably put it as tied with Wonder Woman in its own way for the best of DC universe movies so far.

    Both my husband and I love DC and Marvel and this was the next movie on our list to buy to complete our growing collection! We missed seeing it in theaters, but this was an amazing movie! We loved the origin story flashback that's in the beginning. You really get a feel for Arthur and what makes him tick. I also enjoyed the fact that he will panic occasionally (like in Justice League) when faced with enemies/foes who match his strength level. It makes him a more rounded character and, frankly, the old Aquaman was lame to me. This one is much better and its not the actor's looks (even though he is attractive); it's his swagger, expressions, and line delivery (including his humor!) that really makes me excited for the next one! Don't miss this movie! It's a great story, great acting, and the behind the scenes extras were super cool to watch! It didn't look like such an easily made movie with all they did, but it came out amazingly!

    Aqua man didn't come into being until I was 9 or 10 years old. I purchased it rather reluctantly at the behest of grandchildren. We sat together on the livingroom floor and watched it well into the night. Everyone but me was asleep by the end of the movie. Not because the movie was dull (it wasn't) but it was very, very, late. I finally get the plot of how Aquaman came into being. The visuals effects are excellent. The story line is plausable. The acting is quite good. This is a very good "rainy day at home" movie for the entire family. It was / is well worth the price. So; get the popcorn, soda, juju bee's and good & plenty's. Settle in for an entertaining few hours. This one will probably have a sequel. There are so many place it can go from where it ended. Enjoy. Spoiler Alert: The butler didn't do it this time. :o)

    Gorgeous Steelbook

    Having collected all the other DCEU comic book art steelbooks, this was a must own for me. It complements the rest of them so well. This is a 4K edition of the movie which comes with all the same special features and a digital copy of the movie. You’re safe getting either edition, but if you’re a big fan of steelbooks and comic book artwork, this is a great set to pick up. Aquaman is a great installment in the DC Comics movie universe and really takes your breath away with gorgeous underwater special effects, amazing fight sequences, and really fun adventure story that throws you into a who new world. Seeing it on crystal clear 4K UHD is just stunning and the improved sound quality is tremendous. It also comes packed with over an hour of in-depth special features and a digital copy of the film. If you’re a fan of superhero movies, this is a “Must Own”

    I have been a DC fan for so long. Joining the DCEU universe has been interesting. As I say Wonder Woman has been my #1. Aquaman was incredible! I seen the movie in theaters it was a wild ride. Comparing this movie to the animated Aquaman movie Justice League: Throne of Atlantis both are just great. Jason Momoa shines in this film. Every actor shines in this film. I’m just happy that DC is rising. As for the steel book I’ve purchased I love it. The comic book art is incredible nice marketing as well. I hope you’ll check this out. If this review even helped at all. I know that I enjoyed this. Later on I hope that Warner Bros. #ReleaseTheSnyderCut Next up: Shazam!

    The Audio/Video of the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc are great. Playing through my Samsung UBD-M8500/UN65RU7100 combo, the colors were vibrant and bold. Surround Sound through my Pioneer Elite VSXLX503 was off the chain. The vocal channel was clear and discrete. It goes without saying considering the budget for this movie, the special effects are spectacular. This disc was well worth the purchase price and a worthy addition to anyone's permanent collection. In my area we still can't stream in 4k so getting the disc is the only way to go if you want the best video and sound.

    I used to read short blond blue-eyed Aquaman comics (and watched the Super Friends) back in the day so I get the traditionalists who think Aquaman should've been played by someone else. But to me it made sense that someone with Pacific Islander ethnicity and surfer-dude personality play this role. Also, personal-wise, it was very relatable to me. Jason Momoa was meant for this role. He has charisma and positive vibes. The movie itself is a visual Star Wars-esque feel to it but underwater. But it was just comic book fun. There are some hits and misses with the actors and acting but who cares. I was entertained for two hours. It was better in the theaters but worked well with my home entertainment system. I recommend this movie.

    I remember when I was a kid in school and Aquaman was the one superhero that was constantly getting made fun of......man, how times have changed! Taking place after his appearance in "Justice League," Arthur Curry (a.k.a Aquaman) must journey to the underwater city of Atlantis in order to stop his brother Orm from starting a war that will destroy all of the surface world! This movie takes place in modern times, but the vibe definitely takes you back to the Saturday morning cartoons and action-fantasy films of the '80's......and in a good way! Jason Momoa does a fine job at portraying a likeable hero in Arthur Curry, and I can't wait to see more films featuring Aquaman in the DC Universe!

    I loved this movie!! I thought it was awesome!! Even though I just watched it last week, I still wanna watch it again. I love the fact that because of being in the privacy of my own home, I didn't have to deal the movie theatre mayhem, like people coughing over my shoulders, people talking on the phone or turning on those super bright phone screens while sitting in seats down lower than me, people laughing and talking the entire movie and sometimes spoiling the movie because they saw it a few days before me, or people kicking my seat. Not having to deal with all that was great in itself!! And the movie was completely awesome!! Don't get me wrong, no movie is perfect, but this movie was close to it. Come on part 2!!

    Aquaman is a fun and great ride all the way! For years Aquaman was pretty much known for being the the most ridiculous of comic characters(both in and out of DC) so naturally when making this movie and also introducing this character(BvS) you had to some how smash all those previous thoughts on Aquaman and portray him in a way that wouldn’t be too silly and that’s exaclty what they did and Jason Mamoa makes you love his Aquaman, what’s even more great is they took all those silly things that Aquaman known for(riding sea horses, talking to fish, silly trident) and rather than disregard them celebrate them instead. If you love comic characters and want to see how they did this one you have to check this out!

    First off, this is a long movie (4K). This is a fun movie to watch for sure. And the audio is AWESOME! Even if your not a super hero movie fan but want to show off your system, this is the movie. Picture ***** lots of detail, lots to look at. There's fish, statues, city scapes, etc... As there should be this is a mostly cgi movie. Audio***** this had my system flexing it's muscle for sure. Could feel all the low bass rumbling through my couch from the subwoofer. Surround sound is immersive, you really feel like your in the movie and swimming in the ocean with them. I can't remember the last time that I pushed my HT this hard. Nothing but smiles from me.

    AQUAMAN 3D BLU RAY IS AWESOME!!!

    I recently purchased AquaMan on 3D Blu Ray & it was an awesome purchase that I DO NOT regret... The whole movie in was action-packed from the start of the movie to the end (in regular movies when/when I saw it in the movies around Christmas 2018) whereas 3D Blu Ray adds another whole new dimension, in all aspects, to this movie... I would highly recommend AQUAMAN 3D BLU RAY to family members, friends, business associates as well as those who are reading this review... The only thing that could have been better would have been is BEST BUY'S "UPGRADE & SAVE" whereas I would've brought another copy for my nephew who's a die-hard Super Hero movie fan...

    One of the best FX movies I've seen in a long time

    Aquaman is one of those movies that catches you eyes not only because it it a superhero film but rather because of it's special FX. the FX are stunning and the 4K w/ Dolby Vision HDR definitely does this movie justice. The story is fairly standard issue, however this is not an origin story per se. In this instance we are catching up with Arthur Curry post "Justice League" , but we are treated to flashbacks of a young Arthur and his struggles to become the future king of Atlantis. The story has everything you'd expect from a superhero movie which is to say that if you like this type of genre of film you will enjoy Aquaman!

    Jason Momoa IS Aquaman! I can't see anyone else as Aquaman, ever! He knocked it out of the park. He took the one of the most undervalued superheros and made him badass! Some parts of the story are predictable but it's wonderfully embellished and development. Visually it is amazing. There are scenes underwater that made me uncomfortable. That's how real it looked. This is the best DC movie since Wonder Woman. It is clear that they wanted to make a great movie. They did it. If Justice League, Batman v Superman, and Man of Steel let you down, don't worry about this one. This one is much better than those.

    Aquaman is probably Warner Bros. best DCU movie after Wonder Woman. Amazing,to the point of overwhelming, CGI to create the Kingdom of Atlantis and the rest of the undersea peoples. Jason Momoa does a great job with the title role. Very thankful that Warner Bros still gives people a Blu-Ray / DVD combo instead of ramming 4k down our throats like Disney/Pixar does. BTW, save your money and don't bother with the Steelbook edition this time. The artwork looks like it's been done by a 10th grader. Really unacceptable for the extra money they ask for these special editions.

    Ever since i saw this in theaters I’ve been anxious to get this for my DCEU collection. I traveled like 50 miles to get this since it was out of stock at my local best buy. Overall i am very pleased with this purchase. I looked at other stores exclusives like Walmart and Target but this one was hands down the best. Especially if you like collecting steelbooks like myself. One of the best DCEU movies to date. Cant wait to show the family.
