    Also, very clever of DC to add Mr. Mind in the post credits. Let's fuck up the continuity!

    This was ok. Didnt dislike it, but would never need to see it again. Thought it would have more humor

    More humor? I mean it had some light dramatic elements, but it was damn near a straight up comedy.

    Yeah I honestly don’t know how the movie could have possibly had *more* humor

    This was a lot of fun! I felt like the 2 hour 15 minute runtime flew by. I think they nailed the 80's Zemeckis/Spielberg tone. All I wanted was a solid, entertaining DC movie and it happened!

    yes! it felt so much like an Amblin film. I really enjoyed this a lot, which I honestly wasn't expecting to since I'm not a huge fan of the character. super fun, lot of heart. just a good time at the movies. I audibly cheered in my theatre when adam brody showed up haha. finally got to be in a DC movie!

    The villain speech in the air with Shazam being too far away to hear is gold.

    This made me very, very happy.

    Can't wait to see it again.

    Took me too long to realize why John Glover looked familiar. Lex's dad in Smallville! ... Did he just get typecast?

    I may be biased, but I enjoyed Eugene's character way too much. hadouken had me dying.

    All of the kids were great. Even the foster parents were lovable. I wish every parent in the foster system was as loving, patient, and understanding as those two.

    A few years ago I would've probably said something like, a superhero movie is only as good as its villain, but Shazam and Captain Marvel are proving me wrong. Terrible villains, terribly good time.

    I could watch a whole 2 hour movie of just Billy and Freddy fucking around with the powers. That whole sequence the first night Billy becomes Shazam was just so much fun.

    Almost feels like they did that on purpose.

    I'm happy to report that this film made teenage Anna's dreams come true by putting Zachary Levi and Adam Brody onscreen at the same time, three cheers for the lanky brunette men who have ruined my life for over a decade now

    (also apart from some fascinatingly strange music supervision choices, I loved this movie and I really hope DC takes the hint)

    went and saw this again last night because my friend wanted to go, loved it again haha.

    he and I are both big fans of The OC, especially Seth Cohen haha. and I was so excited for him to witness that surprise in the 3rd act and in an early scene he turns to me and goes "man Freddy is like a young Seth Cohen!" and I bit my tongue thinking, this is perfect haha, he freaked when Adam Brody showed up.

    Both Freddys were the best casting choices in a movie that had a lot of great ones. More Adam Brody in the sequel please.

    Thank you and good night Prestigious

    Hot take. This is the best DC movie. Better than Wonder Woman which fell flat in the last act.

    My favorite part. I loved this last night and went in apprehensive. Would put it second behind Wonder Woman for DC films not including the CN Batman series.

    I saw this today and it was delightful. First time I cared in a DC movie since Nolan’s trilogy finished.
