I saw this Thursday night in IMAX 3D and enjoyed it more than I expected. The IMAX 3D presentation was tremendous. Here in NYC at least, it's only playing in 3D on one of the four IMAX locations, and only for the first week - then all IMAX locations here will be showing it exclusively in 3D. That's a real shame, and I would encourage anyone interested in seeing the film to go see it in IMAX 3D. It has one of the more aggressive conversions that I've seen in recent times, with tremendous depth and some popout - the water effects are really used in a great way. The IMAX version also includes shifting aspect ratios; just about everything that's underwater is 1.90:1, as are most of the on-land action sequences. It's a visually stunning movie that has some things in it I hadn't quite seen anywhere before. Total eye candy. I thought the movie was well cast (the DC movies have really been nailing that part of the equation) and the performances were pretty good. This is a movie that has Willem Dafoe riding on a shark and Nicole Kidman as the queen of the ocean, so I mean, you get to see some of the greatest actors of our time having fun, and that's worth the price of admission in and of itself. Jason Momoa has charisma in the lead role, and is given much more to do here than he was in Justice League. James Wan's direction is solid; he nails the visuals, gets good performances from his cast, and keeps the film moving along. Where the movie fell short for me was its script. It felt like it was written by committee with no particular message to impart or urgency for telling its story other than, "we need to have a film ready by this date." It's a shame, because all of the other elements are there. There are lapses in internal logic galore, which may have made sense on the page at some point or another, but have been lost on the way to the screen. Subplots are brought up and then quickly discarded. Characters and story arcs are introduced and then set aside, and then brought up again out of nowhere, and then discarded again just as quickly. That the movie manages to work as well as it does is a huge credit to James Wan. The script should have doomed the film, and it somehow works despite it. There is a mid-credits scene but nothing after that.
