Shazam! is as fun as they get and could be an indication of great things to come for the DC Comics universe.

This movie is a stew of secondhand powers, middling special effects, horror, and sentiment... and it is charming.

I write this with sincere and heartfelt endearment: with its family-friendly, family-centric storyline and simplistic-bordering-on-ridiculous origin story, Shazam! is easy-consumption entertainment at its finest.

The humorous innocence soon gives way to obligatory superhero tropes, such as destructive battles, complex rescues, and computer-animated monsters wreaking havoc.

This is myth-making at its most basic, but done with style and a sense of good-natured whimsy from beginning to end.

Shazam! shines light into the newly reborn DC Extended Universe. This is definitely the way to go. [Full review in Spanish]

Unencumbered by the need to set up future films, it's an idiosyncratic beast with a tone that's entirely its own.

heart of Wonder Woman and the silliness of Aquaman's bad dad jokes plus the dark side of horror-meister David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) on directorial duties.

The parts in Shazam! are generally at the mercy of their respective actors, but sometimes that doesn't quite tide the film over.

Shazam! is not a brilliant film, but it's also way better than I was expecting.

Shazam! may not change your world, but it wants little more than to put a smile on your face and a little voltage in your system.

A popcorn frenzy, it has bundles of fun, entertainment and charm, it's a welcome way forward if you are suffering from Superhero fatigue.

Shazam! operates much more along the lines of a comedy than what we are used to with modern day blockbusters.
July 5, 2020
I'm very amused with DC's interpretation of the Monster Squad. I had a blast.

"Shazam!" is so saccharine and hollow, the emotion so manufactured and false, and the goofiness wears so thin so fast, it becomes insufferable and leaves a lingering bad taste.
June 30, 2020
The movie is a little goofy, which adds to its people-pleasing charm.

Shazam! is the wish fulfillment fantasy all comic book fans dream about while poring over the pages. It's not only what has made Shazam such an enduring character for eighty years, it's also what makes this film so much fun.
June 27, 2020
It's an enjoyable, simple, somewhat trivial superhero movie, but deviant from pretensions and steeped in a grace with which I have spent a good time observing the occurrences of this peculiar superhero. [Full review in Spanish]
February 19, 2020
It's an interesting departure for Swedish horror director David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation, Lights Out), who proves he has more tricks up his sleeve than just things that go bump in the night.

Perhaps a case could be made that there is a good film waiting to burst out of Shazam! but no matter how many times you say the magic word, it never makes an appearance.
