Aquaman's day has finally arrived, and if there was one inspired stroke behind the first solo movie for the Atlantis hero, it was in casting Jason Momoa in the Justice League role, one he begun in "Batman v Superman".In James Wan's waterlogged, fitfully entertaining "Aquaman," a heavy metal guitar riff blares at our first close-up of the long-haired, much-tattooed, shirtless Momoa.So why is "Aquaman" so soggy with Atlantis mythology and drowning in special effects when all it really needs to do is let Momoa's Aquaman rock?On the uneven scales of recent DC films, "Aquaman" weighs in somewhere between the lugubrious "Justice League" and the less-leaden "Wonder Woman".They have origin stories to tell, starting with Atlanna, the banished Atlantis princess (Nicole Kidman), washing up on the rocky Maine shores of a lighthouse keeper (Temuera Morrison). They fall in love and have a child named Arthur (Aquaman to be) before Atlanna is forced to return to the sea."Aquaman" is too timid to take this thread seriously (or even to substantially include sea animals for Aquaman to talk to)."Aquaman" is screening in Beirut-area cinemas.
