“Shazam” was released in theaters on April 5 in the United States. The movie starts in 1974 with a young Thad Sivana (played by Mark Strong) being transported to a temple in another dimension and is offered power from the ancient wizard Shazam (played by Djimon Hounsou). After failing to pass the test, Thad is sent home and he dedicates his life to getting back to the temple and gaining the power.

In present day Philadelphia, Billy Batson (played by Asher Angel) is a foster kid lookin for his mom and running from foster home after foster home. After another failed attempt at finding his mom he gets placed in a group home where he meets Freddy Freeman (played by Jack Dylan Grazer). After standing up for Freddy at school, Billy ends up running away and finds himself in the temple face to face with the wizard Shazam. He then receives the powers of Shazam, turning him into a grown up. Billy then confides in Freddy who then helps him learn to use his new powers.

This movie shows how important family is and how you can keep searching for something but find it where you least expect it.

“Shazam” is a good movie that the whole family will enjoy making it a good choice for movie night. I give “Shazam” an 8/10.
