We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word--SHAZAM!--this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard (Djimon Hounsou). Still a kid at heart--inside a ripped, godlike body--Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he'll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).

Superhero comedy is charming, with some scary/violent parts.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Shazam! is a DC Comics-based superhero comedy that's like Big meets Superman because the main character is a 14-year-old who's given a magical gift. He can transform into an adult superhero (Zachary Levi) whenever he says the titular magic word. There are definitely some dark moments, but this is still the DC Extended Universe's most lighthearted and tween-friendly film to date. Just be ready for lots of fantasy action violence, including a few deaths (some via disintegration), scary/disturbing "Seven Deadly Sins" monsters, gun use, chases/pursuits and crashes, property destruction, and big fights. Kids are also bullied. Language isn't constant, but characters do say "ass," "s--t," "oh my God," and more. And you can expect a little innuendo/suggestive humor, especially in scenes where characters go into a strip club. More serious themes include abandonment, disability, and more. But there are positive messages about the importance of family (the movie's example of a loving, caring foster home is refreshing), generosity, courage, teamwork, and standing up for others.
