SHAZAM continues the new trend of DC films by giving us a super hero flick full of lighthearted moments, and it uses the source material perfectly. Yes, while I did enjoy the original concepts of the DCEU, this one was just pure entertainment and a pretty good film in general.
I was originally worried when I saw reports that DC was going to be dropping the depth in favor of blockbuster releases, and I still wish they'd do more to connect the films than the loose ties they've been opting for lately, but I have a hard time saying anything truly bad about SHAZAM.
If you're seeking an entertaining action film to kill 2 hours, SHAZAM has more than enough going for it to fill that need.
