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.
In another possible shout-out to one of James Wan's own films, the wrist mounted blade on Black Manta's suit is very similar to the one Jigsaw uses in the first Saw film.
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.
The trident of Atlan was said to have been "forged" with steel from Poseidon, but we see it being "cast" not forged.
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.
