“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).

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).

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.
