All in all, , What Happened to Monday? had a very modern day Soylent Green vibe to it and its villain reminded me of Thanos minus the Infinity Gauntlet. But at the end of the day, its brilliance was hinged on the casting of an effective lead star like Noomi Rapace to serve up the acting and the action in equal heart pounding measure.
All in all, I loved that the film reignited interest in a character that always took the backseat to the likes of Batman and Superman, just like Iron Man was to Captain America before the film blew up to be a box office success. Robert Downey Jr. connected Iron Man to the fans. Aquaman, for his part, was cool and edgy and was a true superhero through and through. The movie showed his journey to meet his destiny and it wasn’t corny one single bit but because Arthur was just like any one of us. Jason Momoa made Aquaman a part of the audience’s family like he was a part of the ocean and surface worlds and he did it in the short space of 2 1/2 hours. So congrats DC, after many tries, you finally nailed it. And it was EPIC. All caps. You deserve it.
