The crew of the USS California is under attack and the crew killed. Steve Trevor (George Newbern) breaks the news to Cyborg (Shemar Morre) at S.T.A.R. labs. He goes to investigate and finds the nuclear missiles missing. The Justice League is called to help investigate. Except Batman who is moody and doesn’t want to but does. The figure out it’s got to do with the lost city of Atlantis.
Meanwhile Arthur Curry (Matt Lanter) is depressed about his dad dying. Meanwhile in Atlantis Queen Atlanna (Sirena Irwin) is trying to keep the piece when her son Prince Orm (Sam Witwer) and Black Manta (Harry Lennix) want to declare was on the humans. The Queen forbids it. She needs Arthur and sends for him with Mera (Sumalee Montano). He will have to rule with her and then take over the crown. Soon there’s an attack on Atlantis by the Prince and he’s found out. When Arthur and Mera are attacked on the surface the Justice League helps them out.
Soon the battle is on as the Queen is killed and war is declared. It’s up to Arthur/Aquaman and the Justice League to stop it before it’s too late for everyone.
The movie has been remastered and available now on 4K as well and in stores now. It’s a good origin story on Aquaman and how he and the Justice League met. The animation is once again top notch. And of course lots of cool extras:
