The story

Several years after becoming king of Atlantis, Arthur Curry (played by Jason Momoa) has married Mera and had a son named Arthur Jr. While splitting his life between land and sea, Arthur faces new challenges. David Kane, seeking revenge for his father’s death, works with marine biologist Stephen Shin to find Atlantean artefacts. Kane discovers a black trident that possesses him, with its creator promising to give him the power to destroy Arthur.

To prevent a disaster, Arthur must work with his half brother Orm to stop Black Manta from using the cursed Black Trident to overheat the world while searching for the lost kingdom.

 

The verdict

We gave it a 7/10 a nice family friendly movie easy to watch. It wasn’t an intense movie, while Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom has its moments, it doesn’t quite reach the heights of its predecessor. Whether you’re a fan of underwater adventures or not, it’s worth checking out for the visual spectacle and action sequences.

 

London Mums’ rating: 7/10
