If you have not, you better go and watch it, pronto!

As you can see, my mascara is very water-proof
Arthur learns that he can communicate with the marine lifeforms and being ridiculed about his ability. Growing up, under the supervision of Queen Atlanna's advisor, Vulko, Arthur trained until he becomes a skilled warrior. When Arthur tries to return to Atlantis, he was rejected for being a half-breed.

During a failed pirate attempt to hijack a nuclear submarine, the leader of Steppenwolf died after confronting Arthur, leaving the son, David Kane vows to avenge his father's death by killing Arthur. 

His revenge scheme starts to take form with the aid from Arthur's younger half-brother, Orm, whose aim to declare war on the surface - claiming that all mishaps happening around the world (Atlantis included) was due to the surface dwellers' doing. Orm seeks allegiance from the rest of the kingdoms in Atlantis in his bid to raise the army.

I love how everything glistens beautifully under the sea - thus the gold plates for armour

The jellyfish brightens my outfit, provides great lighting and also my weapons in the time of need. So be very careful around me.
Mera, the princess of King Nereus and also Orm's fiance, refuse to aid the war plan and seeks Arthur for help. Slowly earning Arthur's trust, the duo travels the world to find the Trident of Atlan - a magic artifact that will assist Arthur to claim his rightful place as the King of Atlantis. 

Orm captures Arthur in one of the journeys. Before he offers Arthur an opportunity to leave Atlantis forever, Orm shares a story about the death of their mother, who was executed for the crime of having a half-breed son. Orm blames Arthur for that. 

Mera saves Arthur during his duel with Orm. Again, the duo travels around the world in search of the trident.

Meanwhile, Orm provides David with Atlantean armour and weaponry to assist him in their bid to rid of Arthur.

Where's the Meg in your time of need? These are small fishes as to compared to The Meg
Their search for the Trident brings the duo to the trident's destination where they were attacked by vicious creatures known for their monstrosity, The Trench. Managed to escape The Trench and transported to an uncharted sea at the center of the Earth via a wormhole, the duo was rescued by Atlanna, who was sacrificed to the Trench for her crime and survived.

In order to retrieve the trident, Arthur must first face the giant monster that guards the trident and prove he's worthy of the weapon.

Will Arthur be able to prove his worth?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.9/ 5.0. I have no words that could explain how much I love the movie. Call me biased but I do love Aquaman. The plot is direct and yet complicated and at the same time, engaging. You'll never get bored!

Cast: 5.0/ 5.0 Bravo! Encore! 

Will I watch it again: Already did!

Macam menarik juga cerita ni ye....Under DC kan? Ingatkan under Marvel so Stan Lee mesti ada. Tapi Aquaman tu nampak menakutkan pulak. Pelik2 la rupa yang pakai gold plated tu. Teringin juga nak menonton filem ni.

My husband will enjoy this kind of movie but not me, i prefer to read book rather than watch superhero movies except for Superman etc. But since you give good rate for the movie, i think maybe i should consider to watch it ;)
