Shazam! (3D)

If you want to save the world, say the magic word.


Shazam!
The latest super-hero to arrive from the DC Extended Universe goes for more laughs than most others of the genre. We follow a streetwise 14-year-old foster kid who can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, just by shouting out “Shazam!”. with some help from an ancient wizard. Although still a kid at heart, inside a ripped, godlike body, Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. This film is releasing in 2D, 3D, 3D IMAX and 4DX. This is the 3D version.

Alex Isaacs quote iconFor now with Shazam! D.C has got a much-needed dose of lightning in a bottle, and I can’t wait to see more. Hopefully, with some more of the delightful cast and the much-hyped but never-seen (in this edit of the movie) Black Adam as played by Dwayne Johnson.

Jim Judy quote iconYou won’t feel trapped watching Shazam! but might wish it was twenty to thirty minutes shorter with a better villain and third act.
