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]
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.
