Director: David Sandberg
Shazam! is about a powerful wizard who is dying is trying to find his successor. After years and years of trying, not much time is left for him. The bad guy has released the seven deadly sins. So he chooses a foster boy Billy. Billy has just moved into a new foster home and met his roommate Freddie.
To be honest, I don't expect much from a hero movie. I don't ask for deep meanings or artsy visual effect in Marvel or DC movies. Shazam! is easy, funny and carries the message of the importance of family. In my opinion, Shazam! meets my expectation. It is rated as PG13. I don't find it scary, but I do think some scenes are a bit intense for kids. I have to say Shazam! is on the edge of being boring. When Freddie and Billy was trying to figure everything out, it was very amusing but at some points, I do find the jokes are getting old. However, it moved into main storyline soon after so everything goes back on track.
It is probably the only movie I'm gonna see a superhero flossing. The first part of the movie is a bit boring when it's not funny, but overall I enjoyed it very much. It's easy and funny. Just what I need before Endgame (I'm just kidding DC, but am I).
