The combined efforts of Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson and Yahya Abdul-Madeen II could not save the shipwreck. Aquaman and the Lost KingdomDirected by James Wan.

The production of this second part of the adventures of Arthur Curry as Aquaman, the unknown king of Atlantis, was marked by all kinds of problems and scandals. But that’s not enough to explain the horrendous flaws the 124-minute film suffers from (including a scene, in my opinion, unnecessary, in the end credits).

In the latest episode of The Adventures of Aquaman, Hero (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Hart, barely there) are married and parents to a little junior with aquatic powers. Meanwhile, scientist Stephen Shinn (Randall Park) discovers a strange creature trapped in underwater ice, while David Kane, Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Madeen II), still obsessed with avenging his father, discovers the Black Trident. This gives him exceptional powers. So Aquaman has no choice but to make peace with his brother Orm Marius (Patrick Wilson) and put the villain out of harm’s way, and he enlists the help of their mother, Atlana (Nicole Kidman).

Because James Wan created franchises i saw And InsidiousHis classes – and his weapons – horror, he uses Aquaman’s new adventures to add a dimension of alien creatures and monsters to a scene of Atlantis, and as a result cinema lovers, a lover of superheroes, often has the unpleasant idea of ​​finding himself in an incompatible universe of cheap science fiction.

David Leslie Johnson-McColdrick’s screenplay is equally lazy, with all the characters’ dialogue – apart from some deliciously funny lines from Jason Momoa, who certainly improvised them – sounding straight out of an automatic dialogue generator.

we know, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom Last DC/Warner film before the announced complete overhaul by James Gunn and Peter Safran. Unfortunately, the movie isn’t the swan song we were hoping for, but rather an incoherent catch weighed down by an absurd scene.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom Flood theaters from December 22.
