    Ok so let me get this straight, the wizard guy spent all these years looking for someone who's pure of heart because if he doesn't then bad stuff will happen... but then says screw it, and gives it to some random kid who coincidentally is pure of heart... but then that kid hands out the powers at all the kids in the orphanage and they save the day? This all just makes the wizard look like an idiot... all he had to do was go to the nearest orphanage, hand out powers like it was Oprah, and the world would have like 30 Shazam's protecting it. It's as if the writers had alzheimers 30 minutes into the film.

    I really loved this movie. Your comparison to Donner's Superman is on point.

    The thing I love about the movie is that it got the scale right. As good as Endgame (to take one example) is, it puts the emphasis on the survival of superhero characters that are all but invulnerable. So it's much less interesting when they're in "danger". Shazam put the emphasis on ordinary people who could easily die, so when the big baddie and the monsters kill people, it's really scary, because we know the people *we care about* are in danger. That's not as effective when superheros "die", because you know they can be brought back in a future movie.

    The most genuine and heartfelt superhero movie I ever saw since Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. It's definitely more memorable than any of the recent MCU movies

    I don't get all this love for this film. I thought it was boring. I bought it on blu ray and I looked forward to watching it, but I took it into the CEX shop the following day to exchange it for something else.
    I also disliked Captain Marvel, but I'd sooner watch that than Shazam. THAT'S how disappointed I was with it.
    I also don't get all this nastiness that's been thrown around between DC and Marvel fans. Get a fucking grip. Both films were underwhelming.
    The Avengers was a high point, and it's a slippery slope downhill from here on out, or at least that's my fear.

    I see a lot of people pointing out that Billy's way of searching for his mom is to convoluted, for a normal kid yes BUT he's a foster kid. They don't typically have cellphones to just be randomly searching on Facebook or IG

    I can totally see why the villain would hold a grudge.On one hand some guys scares the crap out of him as a kid by pulling him through some dimensional type thing then deems him unworthy sends him back a with no proof and his dad almost dies ye and the brother blames him.They probably withdrew and subtly alienated him after that, yeah that is something that would stay with me a long time .

    The character of Freddy Freeman reminds me of the character J.C. the protagonist (Chris Romero) best friend in the 1986 comedy horror Night Of The Creeps.

      @Fried Frog well I think 1/10 belongs to Star Wars The Force Awakens and Last Jedi. Both were worse than this. Also Jack and Jill is worse

      Terrible acting, bad special effects and awful CGI, lame cinematography, boring characters, basic run of the mill plot with nothing special or noteworthy about it, etc

    This movie was terrible..aquaman was terrible..wonder woman is the only halfway decent d.c. movie...actually all superhero movies kinda suck ...I dont know what's going on with the world and popular cinema but it's not good....this movie I felt like I was watching a show on Nickelodeon that was trying to be cool but came out like garbage...not purposeful camp...they aren't poking fun at the superhero genre they are sucking could you give this the same grade as alita battle angel ?

    I thought Shazam was pretty decent. I didn’t think they’d introduce the Shazam Family in the first movie. But it made sense.
    Here’s the flaws:
    1) The Villain was weak. His backstory didn’t make me care for him at all, his motivation wasn’t very clear.
    2) The shift of tones in the movie was kind of off. For example, when he went to visit his mom, I feel like it was needed, but then again it wasn’t. That shift didn’t really work with what was going on.
    3) I feel like Shazam and Billy didn’t feel like the same person. Shazam didn’t really act how Billy acts.
    Overall I’d give Shazam a B. I definitely think it’s a step in the right direction for the DCEU.

      I was expecting a good movie.😄 I agree the story was good and i did laugh sometimes, but the acting was here and there and the kids getting the powers was the last straw. I bought this movie cause the reviews and it seemed interesting but it wasn’t for me.

      @Brian Eats Alot cgi was pretty impressive for its budget,villain was weak,but wouldn't call it bad,family aspect was great.i don't really know what you were expecting from shazam movie.
