PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Arthur Curry, the human-born heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, goes on a quest to prevent a war between the worlds of ocean and land.
David Kane (Black Manta) has a manta-shaped submarine. This was taken from the comics.
Jules Verne once wrote: "Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide... they will come together". That's how my parents met: like two ships destined for each other.
When Arthur and Mera are fleeing Atlantis Arthur yells "Bogies on our 6" meaning hostiles behind them. The term for a confirmed hostile aircraft is "Bandit", "Bogey" is the term for an unknown aircraft, one that is shooting at you is definitely hostile.
SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: Black Manta is rescued by Dr Stephen Shin.
The UK theatrical version was cut to remove bloody detail to secure a 12A rating. That version was also used for the home media release.
