    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.

    A fine review. It was good. I am a long time fan of the comic. However what about the issue with adult Billy/Shazam's character not matching up with young Billy's character. He said things that 14 year old Billy would never say based on the kid we got to know from the film. I am well-versed in the comics it was actually the first comic book series I ever got into. I let go of the things that don't match up with the comics because of course you have to, to translate into film. The two characters just didn't sync. It bothered me all through the film.

    I have always felt this is what DC does best. Make really cheesy comedic movies. The DC characters are extremely corny. It's hard to take them seriously with all the tights and colorful flamboyant costumes. Shazam was really funny and hope DC continues making these movies.

    I've never noticed whether or not you've used "get stuckmanized" as your super hero catchphrase before, but it's bad. It sounds more supervillain-ey.
    Anyway, I thought that the story was terribly written, although I get that they played up the cornyness factor for the movie, I found myself questioning the logic or possibility of almost everything that happened. I liked the little House Jr kid, but they really underutilized the villain.

    Yeah, sivana. I was expecting a more cunning adult but it goes well with the tone of the movie.
    I loved how he came back to bite old wizard in the rear. Good stuff. The low key for me was when he strolled into the conference room retelling the night of the accident(like yeah, we saw that minutes ago...). He could have done a little exposition speech on what was of his life all these years.

    They could have done more with seven deadly sins but I guess writers didn't really focused on villian.

    Its not really hard to believe he held that grudge all his life when you consider his father and brother would ridicule him everyday for costing his fathers legs and being in a wheelchair would constantly remind him of the wizard and how he told him that day he will never be worth anything so tries to tell people and convince them it's not his fault but the wizards but they don't believe him so he spends his life looking for proof and also to prove his worth.

    Bad movie.
    Lead actor shazam while acting decently was not a good cast or the costume and overall look was bad. Look "Zachary Levi" on google images. He can be so handsome, yet in the movie he looks terrible, too old, too fat in the face, bad hair, no one wants to look like that. A forgettable 40 year old face... and superhero movies do want to make us "be" the protagonist.
    Dialogues were nothing special and jokes too far apart.
    The villain part was rather violent and rather sad too, it felt almost R-rated which is so stupid for light hearted comedy it was suppose to be.
    Really, parents hating their children for no apparent reason? It felt stupidly out of place.

    Man I hated this movie. It frustrated and annoyed me. Shazam did nothing cool and the super villain was meant to be a world ender but only killed a room full of board members. The evil entities were these half finished grey monsters. The villain grabbed that evil eye thing and the wizard just waited for it to happen. Shazam's suit sucked (just compare to the comic). The dialog between the kids was very annoying, they argued what felt like most of the movie. Shazam is meant to be all powerful but "shared" his powers for the final boss fight which was anti climactic to say the least. The kid is nothing like the boy in the comic. Bad writing overall.

    Dunno, I felt like this movie sucked so hard, just shitload of cliches mashed together, I think its fine for people who hasn’t seen any movies in their live, Shazam is so forgettable as a character, he looked like an adult trying to play teenager, not teenager in an adult body. Totally derivate movie with nothing new to offer neither in superhero movie genre nor as a movie overall

    2 flawed scenes: if the eye is that important why not have it covered or protected with something hard so it cant be gouged out and when shazam was trying to grab the eye so closely he can just point his finger and fire a bolt. Since the bolt fires out of his hand so easily
