THE STORYLINE | 5/5
Growing up, and still even today, my brother will only watch certain types of movies, which usually boil down to Sci-Fi and action. So, when we went to see the movie, I was not sure if I'd like it. However, I was surprised at how the movie balanced the romantic story with the action. I really liked the storyline and the way the story unfolded.
THE ACTING | 5/5
SPECIAL EFFECTS | 4/5
As with anything with CGI or special effects, it's not always perfect. There is a scene where Wonder Woman uses her lasso to fly through the sky. It looks a little unrealistic to me personally. However, when it comes to most of the special effects, I was really impressed with the movie as a whole.
My final thoughts on this film is that it is definitely one you need to see. You'll like it, even if you haven't seen any other Wonder Woman film, or if you aren't the biggest fan of action films. I hope you'll be safe if you go see this on the big screen!

It’s time for yet another Movie Monday here on the blog. I was really excited to go to the movies this past weekend just to get back into the swing of normal life. My mom, brother, and I debated over which movie to see, and we all decided to go ahead and watch Shazam!
Let’s start with the plot before I get into the ratings. For our final rating today, we will use “Zaps!”
ACTING | 5/5
I really enjoyed the acting in this movie. I know that the boy who plays Billy Batson, Asher Angel, has been on Disney Channel’s “Andy Mack” as one of the lead characters. Overall, I didn’t feel like I was watching a movie, which is important to me!
THE STORYLINE | 5/5
I know that superheros like Shazam have been around forever in comic books and TV series. However, I really enjoyed the storyline. I thought it was especially interesting that Billy could turn in to a whole different person to protect his identity! That helped him out several times in the film.
There is also a very touching message in the film about family being those who care for you most, not necessarily those who you were born to!
THE MEANING | 5/5
As I just mentioned, the message was really great. Not only was the message that home is where the heart is, not necessarily who you share DNA with, but it also gave a strong “we can do anything together” message!
I really think this is a great movie in the way of meanings.
SPECIAL EFFECTS | 5/5
FINAL RATING | 5/5
You must go see this film before it leaves theatres! I saw it in a regular theatre, but I bet this movie would be great in 3D. I absolutely loved it and really liked the bit at the end. I didn’t expect the ending, and it can be hard to get those past me!
I recommend this movie for all ages. I think boys, girls, parents, and grandparents will all find something to love about this movie!
