After the events of Justice League: War, Ocean Master and Black Manta have declared a war against the surface in retaliation of the aftermath of Apokoliptian-tyrant Darkseid's planetary invasion. Queen Atlanna seeks out her other son, Ocean Master’s half-brother Arthur Curry, a half-human with aquatic powers with no knowledge of his Atlantean heritage, to restore balance. Living with powers he doesn’t understand and seeing the danger around him, Curry takes steps to embrace his destiny, joining the Justice League, and with his new teammates he battles to save Earth from total destruction.

I still don't get why people actually think that Arthur Curry (Aquaman) is such a joke, these days. I mean, I just finished watching this movie and I thought he was awesome. Not to mention that his backstory is a lot more interesting to watch than seeing Batman or Spider-Man's origin stories, for the like the billionth time nowadays. We get it! It sucks that you lost your parents when you were 8 years old, Wayne and yeah we get it..."With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility!" We've seen this like a billion times now. We already know your origin stories, now move on. But anyways, back to this movie, I do admit that this actually a nice set-up and introduction to Aquaman's character being part of the Justice League as a part-time member. But, my only issue is the forced pairing between Superman and Wonder Woman in this movie. I mean, I get that they're power-houses and all, but seriously, DC and Warner Bros.?! You're trying to make Superman and Wonder Woman's pairing feel even more out of left field than Black Widow and the Incredible Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron?! I don't get it. And it doesn't seem to even work a lot more in Justice League vs. Teen Titans, in my opinion.
But, aside from that, I actually enjoyed this movie. Even better than Justice League War. I highly recommend it for new-comers and Aquaman fans in general.
