Shazam! Fury of the Gods

Comic Action Adventure Comedy


Billy Batson and his family of superheroes must band together to protect the world from a trio of ancient gods, hellbent on reclaiming their magical powers.

"Shazam! Fury of the Gods" continues exactly where it left off; a lighter, carefree version of the DC universe with consistent laughs, captivating lore, and unique charm. There's a sense every character relishes their role, especially the villains who cackle their lines with great glee. Unfortunately, when the jokes eventually run dry and the plot desperately seeks an inevitable end, the film is far from super. The final act is a formulaic jumbled mess, relying far too heavily on CGI and odd advertisements to propel the story forward. Fury with the plot.
