Shazam! Just like that your dreams have come true! Shazam! is the latest superhero movie but not like any superhero movie you have ever seen before. It’s true, we all have a superhero inside each and every one of us dying to come out…we just need a little bit of magic to bring it out.
Lucky for 14 year old Billy Batson who gets to live out pretty much all of our teen dreams by being able to transform himeself into an adult superhero Shazam (complete with superhero muscles and powers) with just one magic word. A kid with an adult superhero body (played by Zachary Levi) takes some practicing and adjusting to and it is hilarious to watch. Like any superhero movie, Billy is faced with a villain…the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana who is out to take Shazam’s magical powers.
Shazam! is a must watch for anyone else that is still a kid at heart like me! Out in theaters April 5th!
***This movie is rated PG-13 for some language and action sequences. From mom to mom…I would not take a kid less than 10/11 to see this as fun as this movie is. The beginning has a little bit of “scariness” and there is a little more mature language.
