Director David F. Sandberg has delivered a strong introduction for the original Captain Marvel with Shazam! and this is an absolute must-see for any comic book fan out there. The DCEU has a new Super Man and his name is Zachary Levi.

Even in its most inspired moments... "Shazam!" can still feel weirdly disjointed.

Great! Shazam is everything a superhero movie should be. It's the seventh movie in the DC extended universe, but likely the best of all to date thanks to Shazam actor Zachary Levi.

Shazam! is a pure, fun delight that has a lot of laughs, a lot of action, and a family-centric story that's unapologetically sweet, and all the better for it.

The triumph from the movies comes from the teen angle to the story. Shazam! shares more stylistic and comedy influence from Spider-Man than most DC comics.

Shazam! is a fun, exciting, and delightfully-amusing superhero flick that boasts a great sense of humor and a strong performance from star Zachary Levi.

A heartfelt family film with a distinct, if occasionally sentimental, voice.

While it's not an instant classic, it's very entertaining and hits on the right emotional notes.

It's humorous, heartwarming, and lighthearted...Unless you are coldhearted, you will most likely walk out of the theater with a smile on your face after enjoying a few laughs.

Shazam! is a total blast and Zachary Levi is charming and a treat to watch as he has fun being a superhero.

Shazam!... brings a different level of joy to superhero films. It also reminds us of a time when we believed that anything was possible.

Any comic franchise is a weighty row to hoe, and director David F. Sandberg puts his back into every fan-pleasing minute.

Flaws and faux exuberance aside, Shazam! is so determined to entertain families that it's like Chuck E. Cheese who will not take no for an answer. It's impossible not to giggle frequently during that last battle, when Levi finally shuts up.

Sandberg plays it loose and silly enough to keep the film buoyant and fresh, while still contemplating enough to make it stick.
June 12, 2019
The movie is fun and entertaining, proving to be a welcomed departure from the much heavier tone of some of the studio's previous works.

The script is hilarious and it's a refreshing change to see a superhero film that's not bogged down by what came before so it can have a chance to be its own thing.

(Written by Sam Drayton Le Tissier) A much needed new light in the DCEU, Shazam is huge fun, and introduces us to a new hero and makes us excited to see where he goes next.

This might just be the most fun audiences have at the movies this year, and it's proof that DC has another major winner on its hands. Shazam! is, quite simply, lightning in a bottle.
May 28, 2019
In a sea of dark superhero movies with sky-high stakes, Shazam! is joyous, wish-fulfilment escapism.

Shazam! is a nice palate cleanser between servings of Marvel grit...light-hearted and tightly-plotted.
