Shazam! is 20 percent too long, 20 percent too sappy, and, let's face it, kinda stupid. The movie's monsters, who are supposed to be scary, just seem like typically cheap DC CGI. But little boys will love it. Little girls will love it.
Director David F. Sandberg has delivered a strong introduction for the original Captain Marvel with Shazam! and this is an absolute must-see for any comic book fan out there. The DCEU has a new Super Man and his name is Zachary Levi.
Flaws and faux exuberance aside, Shazam! is so determined to entertain families that it's like Chuck E. Cheese who will not take no for an answer. It's impossible not to giggle frequently during that last battle, when Levi finally shuts up.
