    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.

    I am so happy 3-D North America home version is here when 3-D is scarce these days. The only gripe I have is the 3-D should be a 3-D/4K combo pack and that needs to be the standard on every release! The steelbook is incredible for this movie that is not the 3-D version. I’m so happy that I got the 3-D but just wish this was a 3-D steel book at least as well as a 3-D Lenticular steel book cover which Best Buy should take notice across seas that do Lenticular covers on steelbook like your Asian Competitors.

    I am a lover of comic book movies and this movie does not disappoint. The underwater CG when they are in personal situations is good but not great but lets get real they had a budget to meet. I liked the story as a comic and as an animated movie and they kept to that story which was awesome. Add to all of the general reasons to like the movie, Jason Momoa is, well, Jason Momoa. Although he is not the classic surfer-bum-blond-and-glib he does fit the comic version from... I believe it was the 1980s. My only grump would be that the artwork on the steel-book isn't something from the movie.

    Aquaman in 3D makes you feel you're underwater!

    The movie was great, better than most in the DC Extended Universe, but that's another story for another day. The story was good, the character development was great, and the action was everything I had hoped for. The 3D experience of it all was incredible! I've seen Finding Nemo in 3D, and that made me feel like I was underwater. Aquaman took the 3D experience to another level for the simple fact that it's live-action. It wasn't annoyingly right-in-your-face 3D, but the depths felt natural, which is how I like to experience it. Definitely give this DCEU movie a go!

    AQUAMAN - THE KING LIVES!

    DC and James Wan have stepped up their games for this one. This is the most ambitious comic-book movie I've ever seen, so far. The cinematography, visuals and action scenes are visually stunning and breathtakingly beautiful. All of the cast were outstanding. They hit a home run when Jason Momoa was cast to play the lead and Amber Heard to bring Mera to life. The special features on this disc were great too but I think there should have been at least as much about the female characters as the male. All in all - it's a keeper. Don't miss it!

    Movie: Definitely one of the better DCU movies to date. Likeable cast, insanely well-done action sequences, great sound track. 4KUHD disc (watched on an OLED): An absolute eye opener. Definitely reference visuals and audio here. Dolby Vision makes everything pop, colors are rich and vibrant while dark scenes are very dark, yet natural. Audio is on a whole other level. Constant use of all surrounds, dialogue is crystal clear and the bass is so incredibly deep and powerful. 5/5 stars. Highly recommended even if you wanted something to demo a home theater setup.

    I had mixed expectations about this movie which is why I waited for the disc before I saw it. Buying it in the Steelbook format was a forgone conclusion since I always love the construction, design, and being "old school" I like holding it in my hands. Aquaman Steelbook is a great as the others in this regard. For the film, it was so much fun! Not the most intriguing or complex of storylines, but very, very enjoyable. Jason Momoa is so fun to watch on screen and many of the supporting cast were great to have too - I'm a big Willem Defoe fan.

    This was such a good movie, I saw it twice in the theater. Full disclosure, I usually like superhero movies but I don't give them a blanket pass. In my opinion, everything about this movie was well done, I can't think of one thing that took away from the experience. There was a small bit of drinking in the beginning of the movie so if you're a parent of young ones, you may want to check parental guides online before jumping in blind. My kids are grown so I don't watch/catch things as much as I used to. Still, excellent movie.

    A decent attempt by DC

    While DC will probably never catch up to the momentum and success of Marvel, they have managed to put out a few decent films in their attempt to present their universe. While most of these have been sub-par, Aquaman turned out to be one of the good ones. It’s a fresh take on the Atlantian character, and does a good job with dazzling effects that make a long run time seem shorter than it is. If you’re going to watch any of the recent DC productions, this should be one of them.

    Was this movie perfect? Nope. It was actually a little cheesy at times, but the action was enjoyable and Jason Mamoa was great as Aquaman. The worst parts included the dialogue and trying to force in a villain that didn't need to be there (yet). But even with the negatives it was an enjoyable movie. On top of that the steelbook looks great. It had a comic book like feel to th graphics which I enjoyed. And one more thing. The 4k visuals were stunning (especially the underwater scenes). It's worth getting for that alone.

    I was a bit skeptical about a tattooed, long (not blonde) haired Jason Momoa carrying off Arthur Curry but he's made the role his own. The set up with his parental back story made you root for him and the motives of the two main bad guys were well established. The scope of the underwater battle scenes was epic and fast paced and it was fanboy rewarding to see how he finally earns his iconic costume. I still think DC has a way to go to catch up to Marvel, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.

    Aquaman is even better in 4k!

    I loved this movie in the theater. And now it looks even better in 4k HDR. I was worried at first that an Aquaman film wouldn't be very interesting. But with DC's new approach to the universe with Wonder Woman and now Aquaman, they really have embraced letting each character be there own. And like all Best Buy exclusive steelbook cases, this one is amazing. I love collecting all these cases. And I can't wait to see what DC does with the next Batman and Superman films. But for God's sake, please find a new Flash.

    Look, movies are meant to make us smile. I know, I know...Some people feeeel that a movie should make you "think", should make you be "more aware". I think. I am aware. I just want to escape reality for a bit and enjoy myself. This film does just that. It is FUN! For those that feeeel otherwise, that feeeel a movie should give you angst and make you empathetic to whatever? Go watch the classic film, "Sullivan's Travels". Trust me...I know what I'm doin' when I'm reviewin'.

    A Big Hit For a less Popular Hero

    Aquaman has always been the joke of the “Super Friends” to me anyway. When it was first announced that Jason Mamoa was bringing this character to life on the big screen, I thought to myself, “Aquaman won’t be a joke anymore!!” This movie was awesome in my opinion. A great addition to the DCEU. I’m a fan of the DCEU. Though there have been some films that coulda been better, Aquaman keeps the DCEU going with this great story, characters and awesome effects. Highly recommend!!

    Coming fresh off the events happening in Justice League, Arthur Curry must now address his role of heir to the throne of Atlantis and return back to his underwater nation to deal with his rejection of Atlantis, his dead mother, and an new foe that wants to avenge his father’s death. Jason Momoa plays up the main character very well and the rest of the cast are exceptional with their roles as well. Lots of great suspense and action throughout will make you cheer and mourn at the same time. Recommended.

    What a fun ride!!! Jason Momoa as Aquaman was a terrific choice. The film has the feel of a graphic novel with the CGI imagery of color and creatures. The sound is superb. When played through my sound system, it was nearly as good as in the theatre. I enjoyed the 2nd viewing as much as the first. Wan did a wonderful job directing the ensemble cast of extremely talented actors. I highly recommend this film to those who enjoy a break from more serious films and looking for an adventure into a fantasy world.

    Great Disc with a good amount of features

    The Aquaman physical release has a good amount of special features to make it worth while if you enjoyed the film. Lots of behind the scene footage, pre-production work, and a general good attitude from the crew. My favorite is probably the mini documentary hosted by Dolph Lundgren going over the different underwater kingdoms using both the details from the movie and the comics. The one improvement I wish the disc had was some sort of audio commentary track, but not worth taking off a star for that.

    Aquaman is a very entertaining movie with something for all ages. It is a refreshing departure from the 'dark' superhero movies that are typical of this genre. This movie has adventure, fantasy, humor, human interest, and a great cast. Aquaman is an origins story where Jason Momoa plays a reluctant hero who rises up to do the right thing. Jason Momoa has appeared in two other DC movies as Aquaman, but in this one, he finally debuts in the famous Aquaman costume to the delight of fans.

    Talk about Brilliant, Vibrant Gorgeous colors! Details in the dark scenes are presented with great clarity thanks to the Dolby Vision 12/bit HDR. No trouble discerning the clues in the underwater scenes which are extensive. Lots of CGI and effects in this film presented with excellent quality and clarity. Loved it and can't wait to see it a third time! The Dolby Atmos Soundtrack is very active and complimentary to the flow of the film. The 4K UHD is a joy for the whole family!

    What a fun adventure! While my love of Batman gives me a soft spot for all DC live action movies (even as they have struggled with them), I think Aquaman is one of the best along with Wonder Woman. Fun, full of action, and with some beautiful sequences. I wasn’t sure about the Jason Momoa casting initially but now think it was inspired. He looks like he is having a great time with the character. And I am happy to take the journey with him. :D Highly recommended.
