I saw Shazam! a few days before it was released to the public. I can’t say it was the best DC movie that I’ve watched. In fact not even on my radar. This is just my opinion. Many people found the movie to be one of DC’s best. When I think of Shazam! and all the Batman‘s, Superman‘s,Wonder Womans and even Aquaman, I can’t even see a comparison.
Shazam! was a fun movie. I did enjoy it. Zachary Levi was believable as being in a 14 year olds body. The film also touch on the foster family dynamic and the hardships that some children endure. Billy Batson developed some street smarts.
I loved his foster family dynamic and how they all cam together to conquer their foe. The scene where they all became “Shazam!” was pretty awesome and one of my favorite parts. All in all the film is a fun pop corn movie, even though this was a sped up origin story. I am sure they can develop him more and maybe join him up with Superman. I know there is a lot more to Shazam! then we saw. Old tv shows, comics etc. Shazam! isn’t new to most people, but if you just watch the movies he is refreshingly new. This is a great movie to take the children to, make it a family night. It will not disappoint.
