Shazam! a second time. What can I say about it? It’s cute.
I’m not saying the movie is bad because it isn’t but it’s definitely no Marvel movie. Marvel films are easily rewatchable. I found, after watching this a second time, that I will DEFINITELY not be watching it again.
The jokes didn’t land as frequently, the surprises weren’t as grand, the villain is even more annoying the second time around, and the story is so simple that a rewatch doesn’t provide anything new or exciting to the overall viewing.
Now, if I was a little girl, Shazam! would undoubtedly be one of my favorite superhero movies, for Shazam’s infectious personality is something, as a child, that I would’ve loved. Forget Superman. I like Shazam.
If you have children, please share this movie with them, if you haven’t already. It is totally the family-friendly comic-book movie I recommend to parents. (However, there is some foul language and some suggestive material throughout the film…validating its PG-13 rating.)
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
