REVIEW: Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023 Film)

Directed by James Wan, "Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom" is released as the 15th and final installment in the DC Extended Universe, marking the sequel to the 2018 hit "Aquaman." Starring Jason Momoa as the titular character, the film navigates the challenges faced by Arthur Curry, now the king of Atlantis, as he attempts to balance his responsibilities on both land and sea.

The film unfolds several years after Arthur's ascent to the throne, revealing a married life with Mera (Amber Heard) and a son, Arthur Jr. The stakes are raised when marine biologist Stephen Shin and the vengeful David Kane / Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) continue their pursuit of Atlantean artifacts, and eventually using a cursed Black Trident leads to a confrontation that could have devastating consequences for both the underwater and surface worlds.
