I finally got to see this yesterday. It’s weird to say, but Aquaman was pretty excellent. The script was simplistic (easily predictable dialogue beats) but the plot was entertaining (little Game of Thrones, little Indiana Jones). The action was fun. The "Sicily" stuff was a fun as I hoped. Amber Heard stole the show. Black Manta was awesome. Jason Momoa clearly likes being a superhero. I loved Mera's wig. Alana was great. The CGI was a little "fish bowl screen saver" ish at points (same problem I had with GOTG) but the actual figure work was good. Mera's jelly fish dress was fabulous. The Trench were terrifying. The Fishermen were cool. The Brine were quirky and kind of funny. Oh, and Ocean Master's costume was EXCELLENT. I want to see them do an Aztek movie next.
It was a solid movie and between this and WW2, I don't see why they can't course correct. I have heard (from someone that read it) that the Flash script needs a lot of work but, I think it they can get that to work, they can move forward with a DCCU.

I thought it was great as well! The movie was a bit long and it felt like it could’ve been trimmed a bit, but it looked fantastic, and the war scenes looked awesome. I absolutely LOVED the crab people.
