Really terrific writing and a fun movie all around, look forward to Part 2
Comic book fans sure aren't picky these days, are they...
Just seen this movie. Awesome. Highly recommend.
It was cute. Loved the last scene. The kid who played the brother was fantastic. I didn't know Shazam was originally called Captain Marvel, learned that from the special features.
Bad movie for the kids to watch, not a very good story line and poor acting.
This movie was fantastic! WOW!!!
Fantastic movie with a good villain
I FINALLY GOT THE MOVIE & LIKED IT. VERY GREAT ENDING, WITH ALL THE GOOD KIDS, TURNING INTO SUPERHEROES.!! THIS WAS REALLY, REALLY COOL SEEING THE GOOD KIDS, BEATING THE BAD GUYS. AT 1ST, I WAS VERY SKEPTICAL OF THIS MOVIE.?? A TEENAGE BOY, TURNING INTO A SUPERHERO, NO WAY.!!!! THIS PLOT WAS A LITTLE BIT CONFUSING AT FIRST, OF ONE BOY GROWING UP & BECOMING EVIL. SO WAS, THE SEMI-GOOD, TEENAGE BOY, NOT GROWING UP, BUT, TURNING INTO A SUPERHERO, IN A MAN'S BODY. ONLY ONE BAD SCARY SCENE, WHERE THE BAD MONSTERS KILL, THE CEO & BOARD MEMBERS IN A MEETING. THE MOVIE WAS DONE FOR KIDS, WHO WERE TEENAGERS & UP. IT WAS NOT MEANT FOR POSSIBLY 4 TO 11 YR OLDS. I THINK, YOU WILL FIND, THIS MOVIE INTERESTING & ENJOYABLE. CPT SCOTT.
When people say this is appropriate for kids 8 and up, I’m not surprised that our kids are becoming used to / immune to violence, etc. Why would you want these images in your kids heads?
Extremely funny and entertaining for both adults and children 8 & up
Idiot candy. Seriously stupid. Not suitable for children or adults.
The one comic book movie this year you must not miss! Loved all the call backs to the classic tv series.
Fun movie, well done and very enjoyable. Liked it better than I was expecting to.
A very enjoyable super hero flick . Lots of action ,lots of laughs . Unfortunately the movie stopped playing halfway through, so my review is on the first half only. On the bright side Scotiabank theater polo park compensated everyone with 2 courtesy passes for each patron . Bravo Scotiabank theater it was a good move on your part .
Loved this movie! Funny and action packed. Not a moment of disappointment. I will however disagree on its rating. I truly believe that it should be rated PG 13. Some of the scenes were to scary. If you have sensitive little ones you might want to reconsider.
This movie is amazing. It is a movie that actually deserves its RT score
It will keep you laughing, hard!
The bumbling super-hero with super powers to be discovered. Some very funny moments as he has to explore what his newfound powers are & gain control over them. More of a comedy with some terrifying creatures & intense moments, so not really for young children. This is actually funnier than some of the declared comedies. :) Thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm still laughing thinking about the movie. But, it still not a comedy in the general sense because of the overall theme. R H
Very funny with dark scenes.
NOT FOR KIDS. Really evil scenes. I never walk out of movies, but I walked out of this one.
Funny. Could be better.
Comic book movie of the year! 5/5
My kids and i enjoyed this movie, very funny. It had a good story line. the scene in the father's board room was very intense, I think for small children but it was still a great movie.
funny & entertaining! enjoyed it a lot.....lots of laughs
I wld have gave it 4 stars Not for kids under 18 yrs old Adults tht dont believe in demons.......i do agree with the person that had this part in his review i thought that part with the board room in the father company was sickening even for myself ........but beside that l love the movie as it hit the right notes, for people saying about the comedy in Shazam that pretty much what the comics are about, that humor as some body told me that read the comics, would see it again
Very funny. It humorously caught the tension between family members. Loved the exploration of super powers. Well done@
Was surprised how much I enjoyed this movie. Wasn't expecting it to be so entertaining and humorous. Well done!
I enjoyed this movie. I am going tomorrow to watch this movie again.
This is no superhero movie just a wannabe. Only a comedy for small children.
Funny movie for kids and adults alike. Maybe only the smallest children would be afraid of the 7 sins monsters but anyone who can handle Harry Potter can easily handle this. The authors have a good understanding for teenagers. I would do exactly the same ridiculous stuff if I was 14 and got superpowers. :D
Great comedy movie.
This movie was very funny. Who cares if was not for adults.
Awful, truly awful! Childish but definitely not for small children. Probably best described as a immature Young Adult movie 1 - 1 1/2 Stars. RAN
Excellent movie. I can’t wait to watch the sequel.
Ok but definitely not for adults
Loved this movie........Faithe Herman did a great job as Darla Dudley
Funny comedy of a super hero with the heart of a teenager. I loved how he united with his fosters brothers and sisters.
Say Shazam!!!!! Lol
Ok for little children but this is no suoer hero movie. Just a mediocre boring comedy.
Such a fun movie, very entertainning! surprise it only made approx. 250M so far, what are you waiting people, go see it. I would go see all the Marvel and DC movies at the box office, if you are not, than you are not a true movie fan.
Faithfully adapted from the most popular comic super hero of all time. During the Golden Age this Captain Marvel was number one and Superman was number two and I have to say this movie surpasses all other super hero movies.
A very fun movie. I really enjoyed it.
Never laughed so hard. Loved it! Going back next weekend
What a ride! Here's hoping there's a SHAZAM! cameo in the upcoming Joker movie.
There is only one word to describe this movie: FUN! And it has tons of laughs, action, and some drama too. Those kids were very good actors. All in all, this movie is why we got to movie theaters.
I went to this moving thinking it would be ok, but boy I was wrong. Shazam is a great feel good and fun movie. I left the theatre laughing and so glad I went. A must see for any kid, and any adult with that kid sitill inside.
Finally DC gets one right, and Marvel is beginning to tank. For die hard comic book fans, Captain Marvel is still Billy Batson, I hope after this, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman, DC sees the value in original comic book storylines, not every superhero is the dark knight.
Thoroughly enjoyed the movie! Glad they decided to only do one Origin story in this movie and save Black Adam for another film. Casting was great and the effects were fantastic. Great to see that DC has taken a turn for the better and now are focusing more on the story. This movie is definitely worth watching on the big screen!
No plot, no imagination, not realistic, poor casting ie not worth the time and less the money, blatant boredom and an insult to kids to say that they might even like this piece of
