It's an interesting departure for Swedish horror director David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation, Lights Out), who proves he has more tricks up his sleeve than just things that go bump in the night.

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.

There's real joy to be had by watching Shazam, a contagious feeling of childish glee and enthusiasm.

Shazam! is a great second act in the new Worlds of DC. It is a fun family superhero movie that never tries too hard to be what it wants to be.

The movie is so endearing, you almost want it to hit a few more tropes just to see how Shazam does it. Not bad for a new superhero.

[Shazam] was the hero of a movie serial back in the '40s, and a silly Saturday-morning show in the '70s, but this is his first full-on feature treatment, and it's a lot of fun.

Combining honed comedic talent and likeable charm, MCU alumni Levi makes Shazam his own as he brilliantly plays the awkward superhero-in-training.

SHAZAM! was refreshingly good, but it was not without its faults.

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.

Great! Shazam is everything a superhero movie should be. It's the seventh movie in the DC extended universe, but likely the best of all to date thanks to Shazam actor Zachary Levi.

Shazam! is a pure, fun delight that has a lot of laughs, a lot of action, and a family-centric story that's unapologetically sweet, and all the better for it.

The triumph from the movies comes from the teen angle to the story. Shazam! shares more stylistic and comedy influence from Spider-Man than most DC comics.

A heartfelt family film with a distinct, if occasionally sentimental, voice.

While it's not an instant classic, it's very entertaining and hits on the right emotional notes.

It's humorous, heartwarming, and lighthearted...Unless you are coldhearted, you will most likely walk out of the theater with a smile on your face after enjoying a few laughs.

Any comic franchise is a weighty row to hoe, and director David F. Sandberg puts his back into every fan-pleasing minute.

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.
