Shazam! Is Fun But It Has Some Serious Flaws

Shazam! It’s a fun and action-packed superhero movie, and it’s suitable for today’s generation. Unfortunately, DC’s efforts to make films that feel ‘brighter’ and fun are too big to make it ‘spits up’ from its previous movies.

A fun trip watching Shazam! began to be disrupted when the DC hero has often appeared, which is then accompanied by the intensity of the joke in front of the screen.

The comedy gave by David F Sandberg’s film actually weakens the superhero element as the film’s identity. In addition, the high intensity of comedy elements leads to saturation.

That happened when Shazam fought his enemy, Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong). Instead of containing an intense fight, it’s displayed a joke that destroyed the moment of a superhero fight.

Moreover, the typical joke that is displayed is too easy to guess because it only uses one method, which starts with a conversation and then gets put into a humorous dialogue, and that was done from beginning to end. It’s boring.

This disappointment confirms the notion that DC has mortgaged its identity and characteristics for money. If you don’t believe this article, then you can proof it by watching this movie right away on

This Is A Short Review Of Shazam!

The film ‘Shazam!’ teaches the audience at least two things: sometimes the film isn’t as good as the trailer, and too many jokes in the film are actually boring. Painful, but that’s what happened in this latest DC film release.

From the start, Shazam! has performed comedies, such as when introducing Billy Batson (Asher Angel), a 14-year-old boy from an orphanage and able to transform himself from a boy into a figure of a man with a super-strength only with a special spell, Shazam !.

Comedy also appears when the film begins to focus on Billy’s journey to get that superpower. One of them, when he interacted with his best friend, Freddy Freeman as the only person who knew Billy’s relationship with Shazam.

The film also shows the cliche reason why Billy was given the opportunity to become a superhero after meeting a witch on an occasion. Billy is a good kid.

Up to this point, Shazam! still feels comfortable thanks to the balanced variety of scenes. Both comedy, drama and action are still complementary and proportionate. At this stage, Shazam! it can even stir up the feelings of the audience. It’s a fine movie but it’s quite mediocre if it’s compared to other superhero movies.

It’s Another Review Of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is a quite complicated and intense film. It’s complicated in terms of the story, and it’s certainly intense in terms of action scenes that are spilled with blood.

The two-hour-10-minute film continues the story of a hitman named John Wick (Keanu Reeves) who survives from hunting. He is now a fugitive after killing one of the High Table members in neutral territory, the Continental Hotel in New York.

Time and place setting John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is closely related to John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017). After the kill, John is shown hurriedly. He ran to several places with the aim of meeting old friends to ask for help.

The story starts to get complicated when John meets with The Director (Anjelica Huston). It’s because The Director who never appeared in John Wick (2014) and John Wick: Chapter 2 looks familiar talking with John, even discussing the past between the two.

Through scene after scene indirectly, the movie shows the reason Wick decided to directly meet The Director after being appointed as a fugitive. Until finally he met another old friend, Sofia (Halle Berry). Sofia’s presence further complicates the story.

Moreover, he was not in the two previous films.

Dialogue between Sofia and John discussed much of the past. It makes the audience who haven’t watched John Wick and John Wick: Chapter 2 not understand their conversation.

On the other hand, it has quite complicated stories written by Derek Kolstad and Shay Hatten, but these stories are also intriguing. Through various deadly action scenes, the audience is made to wonder, whether John will survive at the end of the film? How did he defeat all his enemies?

These questions are actually answered slowly and simply through various scenes that make the audience keep thinking. Through the various scenes director Chad Stahelski also ‘forced’ the audience not to miss a minute of the film.

That’s for the sake of understanding the whole story.
