AQUA­MAN (M)

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.
