Everybody a superhero inside of them, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word, this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into an adult superhero, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart, inside a ripped, godlike body, he revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! But he'll need to master these powers quickly to fight the deadly forces of evil.
"A welcome antidote to the usual brooding DC fare, an upbeat superhero movie that feels young at heart."--Newsday
"'Shazam!' is just a lightning bolt of unexpected joy that is certainly worth your time and money."--Associated Press
"Levi is a delight in the central role, hilariously conveying the goofy adolescent within the strapping body of his musclebound superhero."--Hollywood Reporter

A refreshingly fun film from DC, a film universe so varied and scattered that I'm surprised when I enjoy any of their movies.

Although the movie is fun for the first two thirds, the end turns into the typical big CGI slug fest we've come to expect from DC.

Like Wonder Woman before it, Shazam takes a charming concept and can't seem to close the deal and instead decides that cookie-cutter superheroics are good enough.
