Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Imagine Big crossed with Superman. Orphan Billy Batson has struggled in his young life, moving from one foster home to another. His life changes when he meets an ancient wizard who chooses Billy as a champion, giving him incredible power. Saying the word “Shazam” changes the teen into a superhero with the power of mythological figures. Even when tall and muscled, however, Billy is still a kid — and Shazam is colorful and comic as the kid realizes he can do almost anything.

Asher Angel plays Billy, and Zachary Levi is his perfectly polished alter-ego Shazam. But this isn’t a trouble-free coming of age story. Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, an unstable inventor played by Mark Strong, was almost given the power of Shazam in his own youth. He was not chosen as Billy was, leaving him bitter and twisted. Sivana has found his own path to power, however, and isn’t about to let Shazam steal his thunder.

Absolutely loved and enjoyed this movie! It was a much lighter feeling movie than the usual darkness of DC films. Enjoyed the humor in the movie!

One wishes the movie had a little more heft to it. It's fine, even welcome, to see a superhero exult in his abilities, and on that level, Shazam! is generally fun. Even so, that lightning symbol notwithstanding, the film only occasionally conjures the spark of magic that gives the title its meaning.

Shazam! just breathes, and it’s bliss.

Shazam! operates as a thrilling fantasy and a comedy about the learning curve of growing up. It’s also a stirring tale of the heroic potential that lies inside each of us, if only we’re put to the test.
