Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023) Review

James Wan and his brigade of writers have come up with an oversimplified story filled with enough action scenes and the brothers’ banter that simply is not enough to lift this film out of boredom. The film is definitely not bad but it is pretty overstuffed and extremely generic, making the 2hrs runtime feel too long. It only works in parts but the hyped visuals don’t leave a mark. Much of the PG humor for the festival season is passable at best and the actors do their best to salvage this film. The villain remains weak, both of them and even the supposed evil plan doesn’t evoke any sort of intrigue. I am going with a lenient rating just because the makers are aware of their product and stuck to making the best of what they can.
