This is what I posted on my Facebook page (if anyone ever wishes to "hang out" with me on Facebook, let me know):
Aquaman is one of the best comic book movies ever. In fact, it became my favourite superhero movie of the modern era (sorry, avengers: Infinity War).
It's epic and ambitious; it develops the heroic and villainous characters well; it makes you care about the characters; and it is truly a film that CGI was made for, the underwater realms in particular being environments that are convincing.
I easily immersed myself in the film, and it had a fairytale quality, too. Most importantly, though, it all felt very credible. I accepted the reality of Atlantis, the powers of Aquaman and the nature of the characters' interactions because the movie made it 100% believable.
It's a magical escape for two hours, and is unique at a time when there are a lot of superhero films competing for our attention and £££s.
Well worth a watch - and that's an understatement...
