I rated Shazam! 7/10 on IMDb

www.imdb.com/title/tt0448115

a solid 7. This is a fun movie that bucks the D.C. trend for darkness and replaces pompous nonsense (S vs B, JL) with puerile humour befitting the young protagonist.

Sort of Big meets Spider-Man, this is real fun at times. And while some effects and story components don’t quite work (seven deadly sins) it is enjoyable and entertaining.

Mark Strong plays a surprisingly consistent and mean bad guy. There’s no quarter given to his young opponent irrespective of his guise.

Well worth watching.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
