Storyline Heading
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM! - this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Fantasy - This is a more family-aimed superhero movie based on the DC Comics character. Fans of star Zachary Levi will definitely enjoy. There are some scary images and strong language that will be of concern to parents of the youngest of kids, but on the whole parents of pre-teens and up should deem this safe enough viewing.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Shazam! isn't expected to compete against the likes of Captain Marvel or Avengers: Endgame. But its status as a minor-league player doesn't diminish its capacity to entertain (doing a better job at that than some of the higher-profile alternatives).

USA Today Full Review
Good ... the high-flying showdowns and the holiday-themed action-packed finale (which is highly satisfying, though it goes on a bit too long) are secondary. "Shazam!” works because of its emphasis on friendship and family...

NY Post Full Review
Good It's blissfully simple good guy, bad guy stuff. And you don't have to catch up on 30 preceding movies just to understand the plot. But what really makes "Shazam!” work are the characters' relationships.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average Shazam! sees DC combining the golden-age optimism espoused by Wonder Woman and the jubilant, self-aware silliness of Aquaman into a satisfying whole, even if the narrow scope of Billy and Sivana's conflict does lead to stretches of downtime where thematic and narrative points are rehashed to the detriment of the film's otherwise brisk pace.
