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!
