Very good movie, IMO. Incredible story of one kid learning to be a hero. Did anyone else get the 80's "Punky Brewster" tv show vibe when Batson got separated from his mom when he was young, and was (almost) never able to find her?
In "Punky Brewster" (for those who weren't around then in the 80's), was an under 10 year old girl who was left in the car by her Mom as she went into a store, and never came back. The cops tried to find her, so she was temporarily-adopted by a man named Henry Warnimont, played by George Gaynes, for the time being. Turns out the cops couldn't find the Mom, and theorized she didn't want to be found, for some reason, so Henry became her new permanent guardian. It also made me think of Tom Hanks' 80's flick "Big," were a boy's wish made him a grown up with a kid's mind, and he did stuff with his kid-friend while trying to live as an adult.
I wish the kids had decided on the name SHAZAM before the end of the film. It's a shame they can't call him Captain Marvel, besides rights with Marvel, but also the other "Marvels" towards the end. What will they be called, if there's another movie?
Dr. Thaddeus Sivana: From the pics I've seen of the comic-character from post-crisis New Earth and New 52 Prime Earth on dc wikia, the film version looks like the latter. I'm guessing the staff thought that look looked better.
The one thing I really liked the most was how SHAZAM was still kid Batson mentally, and eventually had to go from weak, powers-showoff to brave, powers-understanding, responsible hero to take down the villain.
Did the adopted parents also figure out Batson was SHAZAM?
What happened to the beer SHAZAM and Freddy got? Can't remember.
Overall, I'd give it about an 8 out of a 10. Hope they do a sequel.
