We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the grown-up superhero Shazam.
The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she's a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for...well, mostly everything. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his babysitter and childhood crush. When Fred unexpectedly reconnects with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors. A fish out of water on Charlotte's elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamourous lifestyle in the limelight. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.
There are several discussions of it being rare for actors to successfully transition from TV to films. Seth Rogen himself did a very mild variation of this: his first role was in Freaks and Geeks. See more »

I never liked Seth Rogen's performances very much. It kinda breaks the 3rd wall, that nonchalant loser act. But the matter of fact is that this guy is a really great actor. He shines so much that at times he actually manages to eclipse that gorgeous blond bombshell. Yes, Charlize Theron is a great actress, but if you want to see her really shine in a comedy then go watch her amazing job in "Gringo" (2018).
This movie is great fun, and it was a pleasant surprise that it was so good.
Everything about it is good in the right measure, from supporting cast to script, dialogue, locations, etc.
