Billy Batson (Zachary Levi/Asher Angel) and his fellow foster children, endowed with divine abilities, are still figuring out how to balance adolescence with their adult superhero personas. Shazam and his allies must fight for their superpowers, their lives, and the fate of the world when an angry trio of ancient gods descends upon Earth in search of the magic that was wrongfully taken from them long ago.

Expect something other than substantial plot twists and shocks. Instead, expect high-octane action, adventure, and breathtakingly spectacular visual effects super show from this sequel. Thus, given that the writing is well-crafted and the tale is intended to provide us with a steady supply of thrills with a dash of humour, we wouldn’t have much to complain about.


Once more, the United States of America is the cause of the problem and the answer to the world’s evils. This time, it’s Philadelphia specifically, and the only hope is a ragtag group of adolescent superheroes who, by saying the word “Shazam,” change into cape-wearing vigilantes. They must make amends when two cruel and incredibly powerful Goddesses show there and cause chaos. As always, only super-humans will be able to save the helpless mortals. It’s a relatively common issue in a superhero movie.

Superior cinematography, stunt work, and visual effects are used. They are well-synchronised within the comic book source material framework in line with the Hollywood blockbuster sensibility for the big screen. It is packed full of excellent comic things that will have you laugh out loud multiple times.

Once more, Levi seamlessly adapts to Billy’s weakness and reluctance to identify as a superhero. Nonetheless, it’s easy to see how the actor has developed into the part with a sizable fan base despite being over-the-top and noisy. Asher Angel also comes back as Billy Batson, now an attractive young man who appears trustworthy enough to possess superpowers.

Dame Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, who both play the sisters Hespera and Kalypso, respectively, make powerful actors like themselves look caricature-like in their costumes. Although they try to lessen the theatrics, they are still too tricky, and the enemy’s cruelty is somewhat muted. Watching Rachel Zegler as Anthea and Jack Dylan Grazer as teenage Freddy is a pleasure.

Rating: Three-star out off five.

Gal Gadot’s appearance as Wonder Woman was a little lacklustre but undoubtedly worth the wait. This sequel provides the ideal delight for your senses if you’re seeking family-friendly entertainment that still has some punch. As a result, it was given a three-star rating out off five.

Peter Safran is the producer, while David F. Sandberg is the director. It features a cast that includes Adam Brody, Jack Dylan Grazer, Rachel Zegler, Zachary Levi, and Asher Angel. It was released on March 16, 2023. It will soon be accessible on OTT platforms.
