Dolph Lundgren admits he and co-star Jason Momoa were "suffering a lot" when filming underwater scenes as result of uncomfortable harnesses impacting "certain parts of the male anatomy." See more »
If Arthur is impervious to "land made" metals, how did he get the scar above his left eye or, for that matter, get tattooed? During his youth Arthur was being trained by Vulko and was probably the one who provided the Atlantean metal to give Arthur his first tattoo. While the scar is the actor Jason Momoa's actual scar from previous incident. Arthur could've received the scar from another Atlantean metal during his training. See more »
Jules Verne once wrote: "Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide... they will come together". That's how my parents met: like two ships destined for each other.

The film's airline presentation is open-matte throughout, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame in the non-IMAX-formatted sequences as well, than in IMAX theaters and on home video. See more »
What's with the 10 out of 10 reviews? really?. Sure it's probably the best (or second best) DC Justice league era, but that's not difficult.
Like all the other offerings, it's overblown, wooden, one dimensional and over reliant on over the top CGI.
As a child I was always a DC fan and I want them more than anything to bring this thing together, but Marvel have certainly laid down a tough marker for how it should be and DC still haven't met that challenge.
The main thing missing from the film is charm and simplicity, sure Momoa just about saves the day and I think he can develop Aquaman into a loved character, and the film is a step in the right direction. But 10 out of 10 it most certainly isn't.
