We all have a superhero inside us—it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. Billy Batson (Asher Angel), a streetwise 14-year-old foster kid, turns into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi) by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!, courtesy of an ancient wizard.

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 (Mark Strong).

  • 4 stars "I wld have gave it 4 stars Not for kids under 18 yrs old Adults tht dont believe in demons.......i do agree with the person that had this part in his review i thought that part with the board room in the father company was sickening even for myself ........but beside that l love the movie as it hit the right notes, for people saying about the comedy in Shazam that pretty much what the comics are about, that humor as some body told me that read the comics, would see it again"
