I never paid much attention to Aquaman growing up reading comics. He seemed dull, This is not a dull Aquaman. He has super powers I'd not been aware of before (basically, he's pretty indestructible). This isn't a good film, but it is surprisingly entertaining (if overlong). You get the origin story. You then get a lot of conflict that is part Star Wars under the sea and part Indiana Jones and a little bit Godzilla. At first, there's some snarky humor. Then, the film just goes high camp with all sorts of stilted dialogue, elaborate settings and costumes, giant sea monsters, big battles, sword (trident) fights, etc. The groundwork was laid for a sequel. https://www.imdb.com...4/?ref_=nv_sr_1
FWIW, Julie Andrews voices some character in the film.
