A breath of fresh air for DC. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Levi at least is having fun, his puppyish excitement occasionally transcending the rote material. But he's a bright spark in a film that never ignites.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 21, 2019
The second Captain Marvel movie to be released this spring, DC's valiant effort doesn't soar as high as its Marvel counterpart, though there's still a hefty amount to enjoy in this thematically loose-limbed undertaking.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 20, 2019
Charming, high-spirited and embraces its youthful, goofy side.

"Amusing, but the same old shit".
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Shazam is easily the second best DCEU movie and fun for the whole family (but parents be warned, it might be a bit graphic for some little ones).
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

Shazam! is an unequivocally silly movie that happens to be ridiculously fun too.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 17, 2019
So good at depicting the ins and outs of this family group... that it's an active disappointment whenever the film feels compelled to leave it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 16, 2019
'Shazam!' is the DC Universe's most solid movie [along] with 'Wonder Woman' and 'Man of Steel'. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 16, 2019
The action finale of Shazam! takes place at a carnival. It's clever, and packs a surprising emotional payoff. The same can be said of this whole big goofy irresistible flick. It isn't too soon to call this one of the best superhero movies ever.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
April 16, 2019
The transformation is complete. The grim 'n' gritty darkness of the early DCEU movies seems like a distant memory.
April 16, 2019
Compared to the rest of the DCEU, Shazam feels Marvel-esque, almost like a kiddie-friendly, less-overtly-meta version of Deadpool.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 15, 2019
It's like 'Big,' only with a cape and without Tom Hanks.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Shazam! is definitely a film for 15-year-olds, but might I suggest it's also for grown-ups who haven't seen their teen years in a very, very long time?
April 12, 2019
The most fun movie -- in terms of simply being entertaining -- from that comic book line since perhaps the 1978 Christopher Reeve version of "Superman." (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available)
April 12, 2019
This a fun, funny, exciting, action-packed, thrilling, big-hearted, sincerely-felt family adventure movie that rates with the best of the superhero genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 12, 2019
Shazam! can't decide whether it wants to be a superhero movie or a parody of one.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 12, 2019
Despite elements that are both corny and confusing, SHAZAM! has real heart with likable characters experiencing real teenage problems--even in the body of a superhero.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 12, 2019
It was one of the best payoffs in the final act of a superhero movie that I've ever seen.
April 12, 2019
Shazam! is the most enjoyable superhero movie that DC Comics has made. [Full review in Spanish]
