DC and Marvel are the feuds in a superhero movie for a long time, but for me, I love Iron Man more than Batman. I am a huge fan of superhero movies since I was a kid, first superhero movie I have seen was Iron Man in 2008, I didn’t expect that I will attract by Marvel at that time, but after that, I am a fan of them.
I have to say that I don’t have any interest of DC superheroes, maybe it is because I love Marvel has an exaggerated scene, it is more like “what hero looks like” for me. Second, is because my love to Iron Man, It’s hard for me not to fall in love with “Avengers”, which movie who has Iron Man, it leads to I don’t involve any DC movies.
But I went to the cinema last time to see “Aquaman”, I only have one impression, and that is: “wow”, maybe I just underestimate the charm of DC heroes.
I will do the review for “Captain Marvel” next time, but before that, let’s talk about the amazing movie of DC, “Aquaman”! In this review, I will describe a little plot, and the issues hidden behind it.
Love Between Man and God
The beginning of the story was a woman wearing a fancy dress stranded on the coast, the man as a lighthouse administrator comes to help her, after a mess, they start understanding each other, one is a queen of Atlantis, and another one just a normal
Two people who found true love born a baby named “Arthur”, and he has the power to manipulate marine life.
These kinds of a baby like human and god or human and devil always is the strongest (lol). But these kinds of special love, means the queen pray to make this two world combine into one, and this wish build above a great word－ “Peace”.
Therefore, Arthur not just as an Aquaman, he is also representative of the only force that can combine the two worlds. Have a power of God, but also as a human, he must make the choice.
DC vs Marvel
I always think Marvel superhero style is a way to far than DC superhero, DC does not that exaggeration like Marvel, no matter is the strength of heroes or the strength of fight, DC seems to make them heroes closer to reality, Marvel heroes is to make you feel marvel.
If you like to watch a superhero movie you must watch “Aquaman”, his battle scene most are the close combat, and the big scene of melee, in terms of viewing experience I think it is a new style different from Marvel.
Aquaman was like the DC version Thor, both have great power in mythology. But I want to emphasize again, Aquaman doesn’t have exaggerated special effects, but it still an entertaining movie worth watching.
You will also understand the difference between the Marvel style and the DC style.
Comfortable Rhythm of the Movie
The movie length is 130 minutes, I think this length is enough to tell a story, there is almost no cold field in the process, there also will be some “DC’s humor” interspersed in the middle. I think one of the reason you must watch is the rhythm of the movie, it is so comfortable, and also can fully understand the contents.
It showed the reasons why the Aquaman and villain must win, and interspersed with various battle scenes in the middle, to makes you feel the compact plot while you understand the story. And let you follow Arthur from a ruffian turn into the “Ocean Master”, mind growth of Arthur is another point of this movie.
But that’s also a disadvantage, this such a rhythm makes Arthur this character more lively, it means that he doesn’t make me feel his heavy responsibility. But I will have this feeling maybe is the original meaning of this movie, maybe Aquaman position is like he has huge power, but also is a not too serious character.
Such a shortcoming, make me believe he won’t lose in this movie, otherwise, it will be ruined.
Declare War on Land?
In fact, it is hard to explain the meaning behind a superhero movie, because it majority is about entertaining. But to a certain degree in Aquaman, make “anger of ocean” become materialized, and that is Arthur’s half-brother Orm.
Actually speaking about environmental pollution, the most terrible thing is everyone will care about it, but no one will have actual action. It was like everybody already heard too much about “ocean pollution”, everyone knows that’s a bad thing, but they haven’t actually done anything for the ocean, I think that’s more terrible than don’t know this.
It’s like the word has been numb, you know how to react about it, but you won’t waste any time on that. Arthur and Orm actually just like “humankind heart” against “anger of ocean”, to be honest, Arthur is no reason to stand up.
I think the movie can pay more attention in this point, Orm is like just a person who only wants revenge in this movie, I think it is some pity because after all, he could have a greater motivation, that will make a villain more attractive.
In general, “Aquaman” is the movie you worth to watch, if you just love Marvel, you really need to watch this movie more than anyone, I believe you won’t disappoint, you will get more opinions after watching this movie.
And I must say, “Aquaman” end song probably the most success in a superhero movie.
