SS: 6.5/10 Apparently, another classic DC either not a good or too bad movie, and IMDB definitely lost its mind for giving it 75/100. And say hi to superman’s crotch.
I would say that I really looking forward this movie for a long time (yes, I do have a life) and the high score on IMDB, which is 75, makes me feel that this may be the one, the one finally can success. However, no this movie has terrible logic, terrible line, terrible storytelling skills and terrible fighting scene. All of these make me think this movie does not equal to 75 on IMDB. But yes, this movie is brighter and funnier than before. It does make me and other audiences laugh in the cinema.
Now SPOILER ALERT
Let’s skip discuss why choosing a 5 years old child as a successor at the beginning, but the dad as an adult should stop the car immediately when his son gone crazy (Background knowledge: the boy was chosen and teleport into Shazam’s place from a running car and got expelled back to the car, because of he does not have a pure heart to accept Shazam’s power. He was so upset when he back to the car and force to open the door of the running car. This boy’s brother try to stop him and their father distracted by them. So here comes the car accident. Boy’s father squeezed out the car.) And that line “You did this.” said by his brother to the boy after their father was broke out of the car. I mean…WHAT??? Genius? That is all you want to say to your young brother? First, it is not the time to blame each other, your father is bleeding on the ground, and if I were him, I would just stare at him angrily instead of saying that line.
The fighting scene is horrible, wait, didi they fight? The only thing i remember is those people hit other into sky or ground, just like the superman movie again. Yes, we get it, you guys can fly and super strong.
The Shazam family should be the biggest surprise in this movie, and this movie do give relatively quite lots scene to them. One thing for sure, they can be invisible. They are so ordinary, and they are inconspicuous in a bunch of special effects just like their superpower, invisibility.
The good thing about this movie should be the horror scene. The director is from Annabelle and the writer also is known by writing horror movies. So they really know how to make a right atmosphere when there is a need to be horror and how to scare their audience, well slightly, this still is a PG-13 superhero movie.
