* In spite of her preconceived prejudices towards land-dwellers as stupid violent savages, Mera gradually becomes enthralled in wonder by the beauty and goodness of Sicily and its people, to the extent of befriending a little local girl by animating the waters of a fountain to dance in the shapes of dolphins. The glittering smiles from the child and Mera from seeing her happy laughter were ''adorable.''

Added DiffLines:

** Mera saving Thomas's life after he nearly dies from the tidal wave. Not only is this spontaneous kindness moving, but it averted the story from a BittersweetEnding where Thomas died before Atlanna could return.


** Fridge Heartwarming, but she mentions that noone was able to take the trident from Atlan. In other words, no matter who had fought her and maybe injured her, she held back and allowed them to reach the trident to see whether they were worthy or not, before eating them.

** At the end of the film, she lets out a roar of triumph at Arthur's victory. Not just triumph, but joy too; after aeons of time she has someone she can talk with again.


* The fact that the cast and crew still show a great deal of respect for Creator/ZackSnyder. Momoa has publicly and repeatedly thanked him for being cast, whilst Creator/JamesWan has been expressive about how encouraging Snyder was to his work. Wan reportedly even went so far as to show off his work on the film to Snyder against the studio's wishes for his blessing, as well as maintaining that the finished film follows ''Snyder'''s directorial work on ''Film/{{Justice League|2017}}'' and ''not'' the ([[TroubledProduction infamously reshot]]) theatrically released version.

Added DiffLines:

*** In addition to the above, when Orm is taken into prison, Volko says "[[IronicEcho but make sure he has a view]]" most cases, this would be a way of twisting in the knife of his defeat. Here, Volko is instructing the captors to make sure he is well-treated. Orm even acknowledges it with a smile.

* There's a minor point early on while Orm and Nereus are speaking. Nereus makes it clear that he has no interest in helping Orm become Ocean Master on the grounds of attacking the surface when there has no ''direct'' attack, and they're in a position where their gathered armies can hear them. You expect them to come to blows. You expect a fight sequence. Then the sub comes in and fires on them. Now, Nereus is later indicated to have realized this was a FalseFlagOperation, possibly from the start. But there's no such indication that their armies knew anything of the sort. When they had a direct attack, everything got dropped and they fought off the attacker together.


* Thomas waiting for years for Atlanna to return, keeping his promise to wait every morning by the docks outside the lighthouse until she came back. This is even more heartwarming as he continues long after learning of Atlanna being sacrificed to the Trench and effectively executed. It pays off at the end, she keeps *her* promise and appears at the docks at dawn, finally reuniting the now-freed StarCrossedLovers.

to:

* One very simple thing that makes this film stand out is that for all the action setpieces, every single thing of relevance that happens in this film happens because someone ''talks'' to someone else, and the person that is talked to ''listens''.

Added DiffLines:

* Momoa had these words about the film's success:
-->''"BILLION DOLLAR UNDERDOG. From Series/{{Baywatch}} to making what once was the most disrespected superhero into a billion dollar movie. No one gets to the top without the people that love them. My success is from my fans. All my aloha to everyone that had a hand in making this movie. Mahalo Creator/{{Zack|Snyder}} and mahalo Creator/{{James|Wan}} for creating this beautiful world."''
