Quote:A good adaptation of a hero that was designed specifically for the kids and a hero that was meant to be light hearted and fun.
Yes, it's good that Warner Bros. recognized Snyder's dark and grim DC was not the way to go and this film is the antithesis to Snyder.
Quote:Dr Sivanna....yeah a times he felt like a one note version of Dr Strange.....but again, I wasn't expecting Oscar Award winning performances either.
It wasn't Strong's performance that I objected to as much as the villain was utterly generic and uninteresting.
Quote:Zach was great as SHAZAM! you could tell he was having a lot of fun in the role.
Yeah, he might be the best thing about the movie.
Quote:As to a sequel, yeah I can see one being made but a CBR article does point out one critical reason why a sequel needs to happen fast....the kid actors will start growing up and likely fast. So its either replace them or CGI de-age them to keep this going after a few too many years.
Good point. Sequels 2 or 3 years apart will be difficult to pull off, especially with Darla, who will grow up fast. CGI de-aging for multiple characters is probably too expensive.
Quote:The mid credits scene easily sets up the sequel and the post credits scene was funny.
I found the mid-credits scene hokey, but the post credits one was an amusing dig at Aquaman.
Mid credit scene hokey...yeah...but it is hard to take a talking work seriously.
Here's hoping the next Superman movie whether it is Cavill or not takes a less grim approach.
Batman is the only one that needs to be dark and grim, we do not need to regress to schmaker levels of awful.
