For one 14-year-old boy, life can be a challenge sometimes. With all of the usual crises that accompany being an adolescent, foster kid Billy has some additional obstacles in life. A chance encounter with a mystical wizard completely changes everything. And it's not long before this boy discovers that one phrase grants him the ability to make a transformation into a superhero. In fact, it couldn't be easier. All Billy needs to do is shout "Shazam!" and then suddenly he morphs into an all-powerful superhero. But it turns out that possessing power doesn't necessarily make everything in life easier.

WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT LIKELIHOOD OF GETTING RIPPED OFF
OF YOUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY...
You loved Spider Man Homecoming, well, here it is again, all
new and with the DC imprint... story's familiar you have to
agree, with the exception of the foster family taking the
burden of his choice to become the hero; like a combo platter
from SPH & the Maguire Spider Man leading up to the death of
Uncle Ben, since, Billy was an orphan coming in...
Jordan Peele as Djimon Hounsou as the Wizard Shazam was a
spectacle in itself, and love Mark Strong as the heavy; better
than another Kingsman film, or frighteningly, Green Lantern...
a big 3 selfies up for the film itself, paces well aside from
being a touch longer than i would have liked, but they fill it
to the rafters with every last character-develpoment they can
for the more-than-likely sequel..

Wow! I have not been too impressed with DC movies these days but this one was great! Pretty true to the comic book character and really fun. I loved all the feelings mixed with hilarious moments and fantastic action.

After a series of pretentious misfires, DC is finally on track with their superhero movies. SHAZAM! is very funny and engaging, reminiscent of the Sam Raimi SPIDERMAN films (the good ones anyway).

The best DC movie so far!
Scarier than shown in trailers
Creepy statues that speak and eat people: in one scene a statue bites a mans head off
Still an amazing movie!

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.
