SHAZAM! (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Shazam!—very different superhero movie—is a good teen/adult movie as it continually introduces a lighter comedic touch into the darker elements of its story. The focus on choosing a pure-hearted superhero that works for the good of family and friends gives the entire movie a different twist that makes it a welcome watch. This DC comic superhero film works from a well-written script, a strong storyline that defines the essence of good family. Watch for Asher Angel playing Billy Batson, Zachary Levi playing a great Shazam, and Mark Strong playing the villain, Dr. Sivana. Thank you to all involved in the production of a unique and welcome superhero movie.
