Aquaman especially captures a James Cameron-esque approach to spatially aware, highly complex action scenes that is simply masterful on a technical level. This made it a far more enjoyable watch than Wonder Woman, which had fairly atrocious action sequences with rubbery CGI doubles that looked straight out of Blade 2.
A harmless, popcorn romp with fun world building and an enjoyable lead.
I am now an hour and forty minutes into this and I'm calling it the second-worst DCEU movie, easily, and it still has time to unseat Suicide Squad. It makes Thor: The Dark World (which I unfortunately also recently watched) look like Citizen Kane.
I am surprised, I must admit, to see you praise it's technical aspects, it is the most two-dimensional film I've seen in a long time with poor green-screening in every scene reducing it to essentially a couple of actors running and fighting unconvincingly in front of a painted backdrop, while the CGI is close to the worst I've seen in a tentpole film since... well, Justice League. I'm not aware of Marvel having any film, not even Incredible Hulk or Iron Man 3, this bad.
I will save my evisceration of this amalgamation of video-game cut-scenes for a full-posting in my own thread.
