Shazam Movie Review: Best DCEU Film After Wonder Woman

Shazam movie review: Lighter, less and angry, and positively delightful when it needs to be, the Zachary Levi-fronted superhero film is a leap in the right direction for the DCEU. Rating: 4/5.

Rating – 4/5

As the troubled DC Extended Universe finally finds its footing, after a quick sprint along no man’s land and a dip in the ocean, it finds itself in an odd situation – emerging, as it were, from an abusive past, determined to reignite its passion for life.

It goes on this journey of rediscovery along with Billy Batson, for whom superheroes mean diddly squat. Billy is a foster child, abandoned by a mother for whom he still searches. He has a history of running away from homes – not from his problems, but from the idea of stability. He can’t comprehend it.

Billy isn’t a pessimist, despite the cavalier vibe that he gives off, but his optimism is singular. He believes his mother is still out there, waiting for him, looking for him.
