The parts in Shazam! are generally at the mercy of their respective actors, but sometimes that doesn't quite tide the film over.

Shazam! is not a brilliant film, but it's also way better than I was expecting.

Shazam! may not change your world, but it wants little more than to put a smile on your face and a little voltage in your system.

A popcorn frenzy, it has bundles of fun, entertainment and charm, it's a welcome way forward if you are suffering from Superhero fatigue.

Shazam! operates much more along the lines of a comedy than what we are used to with modern day blockbusters.

I'm very amused with DC's interpretation of the Monster Squad. I had a blast.

"Shazam!" is so saccharine and hollow, the emotion so manufactured and false, and the goofiness wears so thin so fast, it becomes insufferable and leaves a lingering bad taste.

The movie is a little goofy, which adds to its people-pleasing charm.

Shazam! is the wish fulfillment fantasy all comic book fans dream about while poring over the pages. It's not only what has made Shazam such an enduring character for eighty years, it's also what makes this film so much fun.

It's an enjoyable, simple, somewhat trivial superhero movie, but deviant from pretensions and steeped in a grace with which I have spent a good time observing the occurrences of this peculiar superhero. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

Perhaps a case could be made that there is a good film waiting to burst out of Shazam! but no matter how many times you say the magic word, it never makes an appearance.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

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.

There's potential with this character but this film is not as clever or self-aware as it could be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Combining honed comedic talent and likeable charm, MCU alumni Levi makes Shazam his own as he brilliantly plays the awkward superhero-in-training.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

A working concept. A wrongfully constructed movie. An overlong comedy about ignorant superheroes. [Full review in Spanish].
