My man! Looks like this will be more like Wonder Woman than Justice League.

Yep, it's looking good. Really good. Here's hoping the film lives up to this trailer.

Anybody else getting Black Panther and Thor vibes? Hopefully they haven't made fighting for the throne too passé.

Yeah, that last trailer does look pretty damned sweet. The roof top chase scene had flavours of Bourne in there with the gritty kinetic action and camera work, loved it, very visceral. And the tone looks interesting and bright and colourful. Looks like it could be this year’s Wonder Woman.

Final trailer for Aquaman just keeps bringing the awesome. Hopefully they haven't shown us too much, but on the strength of this it is looking like it might be the must see movie of the holidays. And with no Star Wars movie coming out this Christmas to compete against, this could really rake in the cash for DC. Looks great, up there with the first Wonder Woman movie.

A cinema must-see I think.

Okay, so I saw this the other day, and to put it mildly it is just spectacular. I'll just double down on that and say that there is such artistry in every shot it might bring a tear to your eye, and there is one sequence which has a lot to do with the lighting (plot point, so won't go into it), and the immense action that is taking place, and it is just gorgeous to look at, a masterwork (it quite literally looks like a work of art projected onto the screen :eek:). All the action sequences are unique and beautifully crafted. Now that is not to say it is perfect, there are a few issues with the script, and since it takes place after Justice League you wonder how this all fits in, but for better or worse, it pretty much ignores the rest of the DCEU and gets on with telling it's own self contained stand alone story. Mamoa is great here in the role as is Amber Heard, and the whole cast to be honest. The villains are well realised and believable in their motivations, it is all good in this respect. This is a feast for the eyes, and I heartily recommend you check it out on IMAX, as it just looks even more epic and will blow your mind. Get it seen. A solid 9/10 from me.

I didn't hate it. Top half of the DCEU for me but that is very faint praise. I'm hopeful that this is the last of the films that Zac Snyder had any hand in so DC can start with a relatively clean slate with just this and Wonder Woman as relatively successful holdovers. I don't really under stand why they couldn't reverse engineer the Thor films and come up with something better than this.

I did like the comic accurate costumes though!

Sadly, due to a nasty sickness bug working it's way through my family, I'm not seeing this tomorrow. Really annoying, but can't be helped. Hopefully I'll get to see it soon though.

Saw it last night. Thought it was great. Best DC film so far (possibly as I know feck all about Aquaman). Maybe a little too long and some of the CGI was a bit ropey (Not Justice League bad mind). 3.5/5

I see that digitally de-aging is all the rage these days. What's next, reanimating dead actors...oh wait...that's a One Rogue idea too far...

Finally got to see this yesterday! Great film, a real breath of fresh air for the DC franchise. OK, a bit derivative, borrowing heavily from Arthurian legend and Indana Jones/Tomb Raider type films, but really I don't care, it was a fun, humorous and exciting romp and I came out of the cinema thoroughly satisfied. Here's hoping DC takes a huge amount of notice to the massive amount of money they've made from this and adjusts it's attitude towards their films accordingly.
