Newly released movie, Shazam!, directed by David F. Sandberg, is a twist to what a normal superhero movie would be. Shazam is a comical superhero movie based on the DC comics character- Shazam. The movie follows foster child Billy Batson, played by Asher Angel, who ends up on a train that brings him to a wizard. The Wizard from then gives Billy the power to be a superhero. Billy later finds out by saying the word “Shazam,” he has the power to turn into a thirty year old superhero named Shazam, played by Zachary Levi. Billy later stumbles across trouble with supervillains and trying to balance out his home life with his superhero life.

Shazam received a 7.6 out of 10 on IMDb, and 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Having high expectations set out for this humorous movie, it lived up to its expectations of being a PG-13 movie. This film is for the audience of a teenager or adult but could be tolerated by a younger crowd. It is comparable to every other superhero movie and has a lot of genuinely good comedy. Besides the humor being outstanding, this movie has a very good portrayal of foster families. Very often movies or television shows will portray being a foster family as horrible, but this movie gives a whole different outlook. Senior Sophie Gieseke said, “This movie is a good movie to watch with your family and was very funny.” Overall Shazam was an average movie and would be recommended for families to watch.
