3. Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 34%
I'll admit, I did not have the highest expectations for Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom which is perhaps why the film surprised me as much as it did. The movie is by no means the best DCEU movie to have been released over the franchise's 10-year run; however, it is a fun buddy comedy-type movie that brings the perfect balance of humor and action.
The sequel to DC's biggest hit, finds Aquaman teaming up with his estranged brother, Orm, to bring down Black Manta who is back and now stronger than ever after discovering the Black Trident. Now, Black Manta is threatening not only to bring down Aquaman but to destroy Atlantis and the surface world.
As a whole, Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom was yet another visually stunning entry but it was honestly Jason Momoa and Patrick Wilson's chemistry that helped save the film in the end. The pair played off one another so perfectly and it was fun to see their dynamic shift as they worked together to save the day.
What bogs the film down is the behind-the-scenes drama that unfolded leading up to the film's release and the fact that it brought an end to the DCEU, as both pulled the audience's attention away from the movie and left them uninterested in the sequel.
