In Philadelphia, Billy Batson is an abandoned child who is proving a nuisance to Child Services and the authorities with his stubborn search for his lost mother. However, in his latest foster home, Billy makes a new friend, Freddy, and finds himself selected by the Wizard Shazam to be his new champion. Now endowed with the ability to instantly become an adult superhero by speaking the wizard's name, Billy gleefully explores his new powers with Freddy. However, Billy soon learns that he has a deadly enemy, Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, who was previously rejected by the wizard and has accepted the power of the Seven Deadly Sins instead. Now pursued by this mad scientist for his own power as well, Billy must face up to the responsibilities of his calling while learning the power of a special magic with his true family that Sivana can never understand.Written by

When Freddy is showing Billy his room you can see a book beside his Batarang. The title of that book appears to be "The Bird and the Bat the impact of superheroes on society and its future". The cover shows a silhouette of Superman hovering. The book appears to be written after the events of BVS but possibly before the events of Justice League. See more »
Dr. Sivana had none of the deadly sins inhabiting his body when he fell several dozen stories. Though he didn't hit the ground, the physical trauma of being caught by Shazam would have killed any mere mortal, as the internal organs continue to plummet toward the Earth. See more »

I went into this a little sceptical and found I came out rather chuffed with such a good film. Far far better than I was expecting and pleased I had gone to a preview screener for this.
The acting is spot on, the comedy is spot on and the action is.... You guessed it, spot on. I certainly recommend any super hero fan to go watch this and big praised to WB for leaving this alone and letting the DIrector get on with it.
