Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics are now all ready to release their new movie with Shazam!, and the first set of reviews have been released.
It seems like Shazam! has the makings of a really huge hit, which is no surprise to everyone who keeps track of the reactions on social media. What is a big surprise is how ‘high’ the score on Rotten Tomatoes is for this movie- 97%
Brandon Davis from Comicbook.com had loved this film and had praised how the movie approaches the superhero genre:
“Whereas several superhero movies offer up dishes of destruction and chaos, Shazam!stays focused on its characters as they fly through the air throwing punches at one another and pulling off unbelievable aerial and combat feats,” Davis had written.
“At no point does Sandberg blur the lines of what is happening on screen, nor does he destroy an entire city in having his hero clash with a villain. Instead, he puts epic action moments at the forefront paired with well-timed and delivered quips to make sure there is not one single dull moment throughout the entire run of the film.”
“By the time Shazam!comes to an end, moviegoers will definitely know this hero’s name and be eager to hear it shouted many more times. This might just be the most fun audiences have at the movies this year, and it’s proof that DC has another major winner on its hands. Shazam! is, quite simply, lightning in a bottle,” he had said.
Davis is surely not alone, because the other reviews also indicate that Shazam! is a huge hit amongst all the critics.
Shazam! premieres in theatres on April 5th.
