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!

Although it’s technically about saving the world (again), Shazam! plays out at eye level, grounded by the belief that who people love and where they feel they belong is stakes enough. If that violates the exigencies of franchise filmmaking, so be it.

Proves so determinedly ebullient you begin to think they're pumping laughing gas into the auditorium. The most kid-friendly DC movie so far, the film is thoroughly entertaining.

Fans occasionally refer to Shazam as “The Big Red Cheese” and this movie is very faithful to the spirit of that nickname. It’s warm and sentimental about blended families, and it sincerely believes in the importance of being a hero and doing the right thing. It’s got plenty of goofy kid-gets-to-play-superhero-for-real humor. And other than some friction between Levi and Asher’s performances, it all works.
