Description

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).

    this movie had moments of greatness but then had many more of not so great.. It was like watching BIG with super powers. There is no connection or concern for the charaters. I would wait for Netflix or HBO.. Dont waste the $6 dollars.

    I spent the first half hour waiting for the movie to start. It was off-putting, awkward and bizarre. It is as if they are daring you to bail. After this it doesn't get much better. The hero is supposed to be "pure of heart" but he robs ATMs, goes to strip joints, and tries to be a street hustler. (Kids go to this movie. Do parents want to hear about "boobies" and nipples? Do they want to have to tell their kids what a strip club is?) The movie is VERY badly written. It's not funny, it's not intelligent. It is not witty nor clever. And it never really gets started. A bad guy shows up. He beats the hero over, and over, and over. and over again, until the hero sort-of responds. Shazam is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. For an actor of the stature of Mark Strong, this must be a major embarrassment. I can't imagine how DC / WB can continue to crank out such third-rate garbage. How can they convince anyone to front the money?
  • Surprisingly good

    I watched this movie because I had discounted tickets. Went in expecting nothing and came out with a really great experience. It's really funny and has heart with just the right amount of serious. It feels like an Indie film about school life with a mix of superhero in it. It doesn't seem to really fit in the DC Universe but with the right writing it should be fine if its ever meant to join the Justice League. Had DC focused on Shazam and Aquaman, reintroducing Batman, and a better written WW, Superman instead plunging into their poor man's version of Marvel's Civil War, I might've been more invested in Justice League. But let's see what they can do

    This is only aimed at kids with awkward humor. Also the action isn’t great either. You can live without watching this.
  • Shazam was good to see at all times to which you in it

    By the way, if you actually insult the intelligence of those with opinions different to yours on such a trivial matter as how good a movie is Then you legitimately have a mental disorder called “I am too stupid to realize what an absolute fool I am making of myself by acting like I know more than you on a matter that no knowledge is required on to debate.”
