Short version: 54% of critics are wrong, this is a fun flick.
Slightly longer version: SHAZAM! FURY OF THE GODS is a fun, goofy movie that is remarkably sanguine about its body count for something starring a bunch of teenagers. I wasn’t expecting major-league drama and angst, so I wasn’t surprised to not get any. What I did expect was a lot of stuff in Philly getting smashed up with a cavalier disregard to exactly who would clean all of this up, and that is what I got.
You should be okay if you liked SHAZAM! – although I’m not sure that there’s going to be a sequel. I don’t know what the heck they’re going to do with DC now. Probably muck it up – or, worse, figure it all out just in time for superhero movies to die. Alas. Alack. At least we got this one out beforehand.
