Shazam he continues to lean into his silliness and immaturity in this sequel which tells us this franchise will stick around to keep these movies fun, light and slapstick. The sequel comes with more action, compelling villains, and a tricky anti-hero.”.

Daniel Baptista of The Movie Podcast:

Shazam! The fury of the gods is a MAGICAL and HILARIOUS family adventure. David F. Sandberg OVERLOADS everything that made the first film special with the heart of the story always being the Shazam Family. Rachel Zegler and Jack Dylan Grazer steal every scene”.

Shazam! The fury of the gods It’s endearing, hilarious, entertaining, and epic. Helen Mirren stands out as a great addition to the list of Shazam. Sandberg’s film is just as compelling as the first, but the stakes are higher here. Huge twists galore, DC fans will love it Shazam 2.

Gabriella Geisinger of Digital Spy:

“With Shazam! The fury of the gods is a hilarious buddy comedy starring Djimon Hounsou and Jack Dylan Grazer. Unfortunately, you have to see Shazam 2 to se her. Few bright spots bogged down by the final act’s murky CGI battle. Levi plays Billy like he’s in on a joke, a weird vale of humor.”.
