Those who didn’t win the first Shazam! and his more sympathetic view of the DCU probably won’t find themselves buying into Billy’s journey now. And that being said, DC’s recent changes make parts of Wrath of the Gods feel like they came too late. However, as it stands on its own, Sandberg has created an interesting sequel with her heart in the right place. It has its stumbles, but it knows what kind of movie it wants to be: a serious superhero that pulls at the heartstrings and tugs at the heartstrings. He will surely succeed there.

Sandberg and her screenwriters Henry Gayden and Chris Morgan deftly navigate the two worlds here, and the teenagers are the most compelling. As they turned 30 with their senior Super Heroes at the helm, this sequel really upped the ante with those demonic goddesses Hespera (Mirren), Calypso (Liu) and fire-breathing dragons and other creatures wielded by the younger members. trio Anthea (Zegler of West Side Story fame). The action here is really quadrupled, as are the special effects. Of course, an ideal performance, Zachary Levy leads the way again as the grown-up Billy, a teenager still really searching for his place in the world, and Super Hero Freddy (Adam Brody), Superhero Eugene (Ross Butler), Super Hero Hero Pedro (DJ Cotrona), Super Hero Darka (Meagan Good) and Super Hero Mary (Grace Caroline Carrey also plays Mary Jr., the oldest of the teenagers). Levy, in almost Paul Rudd-like fashion, knows how to inject comedy without sacrificing the heroic antics the role demands.

Wrath of the Gods finds its funniest and funnest moments through the character of Freddy, who feels more like a living character than Shazam. All day, Freddy is picked on at school, but he falls for a new student, Annie, who he doesn’t know is actually Anthea, one of Atlas’ daughters. At night, he becomes his own hero, fighting crimes that we never get to see. Both Grazer and Brody are a lot of fun here, and it’s a shame the story doesn’t revolve around them. Brody is great in hero mode, Grazer is always a delight when we see him, especially when he’s with a magician (Djimon Hounsou) who has no time for Freddy’s antics, and Zegler is charming, especially in the quieter moments. Film. Indeed, Grazer and Hounsou’s mismatched team is where Wrath of the Gods shines brightest, a reminder that this movie can actually be funny.

At the end of the day, Shazam! Wrath of the Gods is a fun movie that is ready to embrace strange monsters, giant dragons and lightning strikes. It won’t revolutionize the genre or push the boundaries. It’s a simple story that falls victim to some of the trappings of the genre. Sometimes it’s better to know what story you want to tell and how to tell it well. A predictable but effective entry in the genre, it’s a fun way to spend an afternoon in the DC Universe. As superhero cinema continues to expand for the foreseeable future, there’s room for something light and comedic to serve as a palette cleanser amid the multi-faceted mayhem and gore. At the heart of the film is a literal rendering of a childish sense of exhilaration, of a child screaming a magic word to become a superhero. Shazam! Wrath of the Gods is a big, sweeping blockbuster that theaters can always see more of.

The film opens with a lavish, well-acted sequence in which Shazam and his fellow superheroes save scores of people from a collapsing bridge. Unfortunately, they couldn’t save the bridge either, earning them the derisive nickname of the “Philadelphia Fiascos.” Shazam seems to struggle with his superhero persona, pouring out his worries and self-doubts to his pediatrician (PJ Byrne). He also has a nightmare about a dinner date with Wonder Woman, which turns out to be the wizard’s head on her body.

Jamie Jirak, Comic

Overall, Shazam! Wrath of the Gods isn’t the most unique or action-packed comic book movie. You certainly won’t leave the theater a converted DC fan, but you will leave with a smile on your face. If you’re looking into the uncertainty of Shazamily’s future, Shazam! Wrath of the Gods is an enjoyable ride and a worthy sequel to the first film.

William Bibbiani, The Wrap

When Shazam! Wrath of the Gods focuses on comedy and character, which is great, but sometimes it strays in favor of generic superheroes. The opening of the film sees Hespera and Calypso wreaking havoc in a museum as they commit a heist. It’s all very chaotic, like a PG-13 version of Wishmaster’s epic opening sequence. But it’s not very interesting because we don’t know who they are or why we should care, and the movie doesn’t bother to tell us for long.

Kate Erbland, IndieWire

Despite the universal share of what’s going on, the action feels relatively contained (the monsters look good, the lightning that Shazam often uses has never looked better, but it all feels like it was shot in one back-end). And while the rest of the DC universe occasionally finds its way into this bubble (Billy loves Wonder Woman a lot, for example), there’s something about series like this that can really stand alone. It’s charming — and it’s different, and worth saving.

Shazam Wrath of the Gods post credits

in 2019 Shazam smaller in scale, it was still a significant success. What comes out of these reviews is that the creative team was definitely looking to expand it further.
