And boy did I hate it.
I knew, they'd go the humorous way from the trailer. But was it PG3? That was a children movie for children of the ages 5-10 but because some of the scenes, not suited for that age lol.
Yes, almost all of you will disagree. But I hated it.
1) all these cave scenes were terrible. They all looked like they were made in a Universal Studios Waiting Line, where the line goes through artificial caves. It SCREAMED studio, the entire time. Everything looked like a room with some plastic props. It was just horrible.
2) WTF, does nobody check these movies? Bus goes off the bridge. Guy falls through the bus on the glas. Glas starts breaking... second person falls: Ok, that's it, the glas MUST break from the impact, if a person lying on it is already breaking it now... nope. Bus falls down.
How in the world did he save anybody, by just catching the bus 3 feet from the ground? What difference does it make if it crashes into the ground, or on his hands? And worse: He catches it by the same window that was about to break... then is holding the entire bus up by that windshield. WTF???? Yes, bla bla of disbelief, but come on, I'm not 5.....
3) The typical overpowered superhero dilemma: Just like in the Superman, where Zod and him are invulnerable, and just keep throwing each other through buildings or in the Black Panther Bossfight, where both have a unbreakable suit and thus all kicks and punches do just nothing... in the same way Shazam vs Glaseyed villain was entirely uninspered and devoid of any tension. OH wow, he just through Billy into the wall. So what? That wall is not magic. It's like if somebody judo throws me really good.... on a mat. And again and again, they meet in the air, do some thumb wrestling, then one gets flung to the ground, and repeat.
There was NO SENSE of Billy being in danger any time, apart from the few moments he shazamed back to Billy form and thus could be killed by one burst of electricity. But of course it doesn't happen. Bad guy tries to drown him lol. Fucking dumb.
Aside from that: I don't know Shazam at all. Last thing I've read with him was the Injustice storyline, which was awesome and so was Shazam. But really serious, dangerous and not to fuck with. I also know from Black Adam but: Now there are what, 6 Shazams? Is that from the comics? what happens to them, are they canon? If they are, Injustice and other storylines should have 6 Shazams, not one? Never heard of it.
Yeah. Glad I'm done.
