Shazam! very fun and positive reviews.
Shazam! is a game-charger for the DCEU and comic book movies in general.
This heartfelt origin story is more than the sum of its immense charm and Spielbergian attention to detail.
This new DC entry has a lovely lightness, both in the visuals and in its tone.
Casting is a strong suit here, and even the incidental characters are distinctive and precise.
Shazam! is basically two movies in one. One with Levi and his wiseass foster brother (a fresh Jack Dylan Grazer), the other with Strong and all his snarling, computer-generated gobbledygook. And they both have the other in a headlock, wrestling for the soul of the story. I loved one, yawned through the other.
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.
Shazam’s tale of orphans and wizardry is not perfect — Sivana is a stylish but ultimately forgettable menace — but it’s pretty close.
'Shazam!' Is Electrifying
One of the best DC superhero origin films ever made, Shazam! is also one of the best and most fun superhero films from any company. Whatever your superhero sensibilities, you're going to love Shazam!
It's warm, funny, sad, uplifting, heartbreaking, and all-around terrific fun for everybody.
