Thanks to a fun performance by Zachary Levi and a light yet imaginative spirit, Shazam is an entertaining take on the superhero genre. It works fine as a family film, a buddy flick, and a tentpole blockbuster. Levi plays the part similar to Tom Hanks in Big;he’s just a big kid at heart. Mark Strong is serviceable as the villain but he’s less interesting than his own demonic henchmen. It does run a little too long like the other DCEU movies.
