SINKING, SWIMMING AND TREADING WATER, US, 143MIN
Aquaman stays afloat for a while as a must-see, until sinking to the depths of a “must-we?”. If you feel refreshed by dipping into this muddling blockbuster, there is one person to thank. Leading man Jason Momoa has charisma to burn – and great comic smarts – and is a great fit for a marine-man-mountain. If you think DC superhero flicks are never as good as a Marvel-made movie, this won’t change your mind. As for the special effects, the underwater action scenes never quite pack the wow factor expected from a massive $225m production. Co-stars Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Nicole Kidman.
