"I grew up in the 70's and 80's...This character had a short show...but sure was very most fond of Shazam through the comic magazines, I can't say enough of how much the reintroduction is absolutely a stunner and VERY MOST FUN for the entire family to enjoy!...I sure am looking forward to a sequel AND, the 3D version for home is an absolute MUST...
I enjoyed this one. It had funny moments and great story. Looks excellent in 4K. HDR pops on this one.
I would recommend this to a friend

In present-day Philadelphia, foster child Billy Batson runs afoul of the law while searching for his birth mother and is placed in a group home run by Victor and Rosa Vasquez with five other foster children: Mary Bromfield, Pedro Peña, Eugene Choi, Darla Dudley and superhero enthusiast Freddy Freeman. Meanwhile, an embittered adult Sivana discovers a way to return to the Rock of Eternity. There, he steals the Eye of Sin, becoming the Sins' vessel and besting the Wizard before returning to Earth and using the Sins to murder his brother, father and Sivana Industries' board of directors.
DC keeping the fun formula of it's previous movie releases, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and even Justice League (it gets a pass because of all the production problems, but was still fun!!!) Henry Cavill is staying after all... maybe the DCU isn't dead in the water as they originally thought!!! :)
Shazam brings the charm of being young with the desire to become a superhero in a very heartfelt way. The characters are all relatable and have a great sense of humor to them ! The steelbook design is simple but it does it’s job. Definitely a must buy for the kiddos.
This movie reminds me of Superhero movies from a time when I was younger. Lots of heart and laughs. Touches of the Tom Hanks Big with the feel good of seeing that family and friends aren’t always found in the traditional places.
