Kinda looks like hot garbage or a SyFy movie, some of the special effects look really good and others look 1980s Clash of the Titans bad.

Still, Momoa's got personality and who doesn't love a good story about a dude and the fish he fucks. This looks like it might be so bad it'll be fun.

The release date though is just bizarre, this is gonna be going up against Mortal Engines (London wheels, Peter Jackson); Mary Poppins Returns (every women in the world is gonna drag every man into this), Bumblebee, Battle Angel Alita (bug eyes) and Holmes and Watson (Ferrell and John C Reilly team up again). I guess it fits the action tentpole category but I dunno how many people are really gonna give enough fucks to go out to see it christmas time.

Why do DC movies look so washed out? Even this one, the scenes in day time with 'bright' colors, they all look washed out.

Jesus christ Hollywood is retarded. Why the hell do they keep giving that man roles? He had 3 episodes in the first season of GOT where he did NOTHING yet here he is today, still getting leading roles.

Because he was a badass in Stargate Atlantis long before GoT. Also... Baywatch.

This might actually be decent. Far cry better than Man of Darkness or Darkness the Darkness Returns.

Yeah those special effects look seriously weak. I'll still watch it, but man DC is almost all trash at this point.

If the characters have to say "that was awesome" after every scene, chances are nothing in the movie is going to be awesome.

It is a masterpiece compared to anything that wasn't done by Burton or Nolan. I'll give Superman 1 and 2 a slight pass for the era, but even it was sorta shit. Its not good when one of your pillar movies looks worse than the current M. Night offerings (Split was pretty damn good though).

More than once, in a single trailer. Several things were repeated multiple times. I imagine it may entertain the 8-15 crowd. But serious, just complete "meh".

Sorry, but just looks like Green Lantern to me. Tons of CGI.
What? Tons of CGI? How dare they have tons of CGI in a movie about a man who swims like a fish and is the King of Atlantis? It all has to be practical effects or its just more Hollywood garbage, I say. /adjusts fedora

wait you guys think this looks cool?



It looks like its out of a CW tv show or a Power Rangers episode

I mean you can't fault them for at least going close to comic book accurate. Black Manta has always had that huge helmet though.

Looks like Aqua-Thor with some Phantom Menace-style large-scale battles thrown in for good measure. Funny how Hemsworth might've been the perfect Aquaman for this.
