Mera: [can't activate it] Nothing.
Arthur Curry: Of course it's not working. It's been sitting here gathering dust since before the Sahara was a desert!
Mera: Before the Sahara was a desert... You do your best thinking when you're not thinking at all. Hold still.
[extracts sweat from Arthur]
Mera: We need water. You're the closest source.
[uses the water to get the device working]
Arthur Curry: Show-off. I could've just peed on it.

Every superhero movie cliche you can imagine
16 December 2018 | by AlexeyxDDSee all my reviews

I have no idea why somebody would give this movie a good score, let alone 10. After 20 minutes I have decided that its for the best to switch my brain off and enjoy the show. But damn this movie is way too dumb. Character development is rushed and is given in a form of cringy and weak dialogues. Jokes feel like they are just out of place, but specific moments are created just for them to happen (which makes it even more ridiculous). There are some really stunning shots, but its more of an exception rather than the rule. But the main issue, which makes this movie unwatchable without at least 4 cans of beer, is the fact that its linear as hell, there are 0 unpredictable plot twists, from the beginning of the movie (or even from trailers) you for sure know how its going to end. Also the mood is unbelievably inconsistent, at some points characters are dead serious, while in 2 minutes they may be cracking jokes. Its not as bad as in Justice League, but black manta just looks pathetic with his constanty frowny or angry face. WB, u evil corporate idiots, stop ruining your movies by trying to be like Marvel and making movies based on a formula which clearly doesn't work. It just looks like a parody and not a well done one.
