Shazam!: A Meta Superhero Film (And Another Good DC Movie)

Shazam! – A Meta Superhero Film (And Also Another Good DC Movie!)

Aquaman was an over-the-top absurd film that dared to be stupid and it paid off. DC was hurting for something fun, and it delivered. Can Shazam! do the same? Can it be fun? Can it exceed expectations? Can it actually make more sense than Aquaman did?

Spoilers… it is! Thoroughly enjoyable, incredibly goofy, filled to the brim with heart, Shazam! perhaps has a little too much fun with itself, and you know what? More power to it! If this is where DC wants to go, let’s keep going! I don’t ever want to see the breaks turned on for this!

Shazam! is Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action, language, and suggestive material. It features Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Mark Strong. Directed by David Sandberg.
