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.

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.

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.

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.

Combining honed comedic talent and likeable charm, MCU alumni Levi makes Shazam his own as he brilliantly plays the awkward superhero-in-training.

SHAZAM! was refreshingly good, but it was not without its faults.
August 29, 2019
Director David F. Sandberg has delivered a strong introduction for the original Captain Marvel with Shazam! and this is an absolute must-see for any comic book fan out there. The DCEU has a new Super Man and his name is Zachary Levi.

Great! Shazam is everything a superhero movie should be. It's the seventh movie in the DC extended universe, but likely the best of all to date thanks to Shazam actor Zachary Levi.

Shazam! is a pure, fun delight that has a lot of laughs, a lot of action, and a family-centric story that's unapologetically sweet, and all the better for it.

The triumph from the movies comes from the teen angle to the story. Shazam! shares more stylistic and comedy influence from Spider-Man than most DC comics.
