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.

Superman traditionally stands for "truth, justice and the American way". The essay Caitlyn is writing when she's visited by Brandon is "The Decline of Truth and Justice in the Modern World", identifying Brandon as a twisted, dark version of Superman born from the death of the values that the original one embodied.

The lighting (not the supernatural parts) in the barn sequences is all wrong. In numerous shots you can see the building's light fittings and none of them are ever turned on. All the scene lighting is clearly from the set lights. It comes from completely different positions and has a colour and focus you wouldn't get from the basic incandescent fittings shown. See more »
SPOILER: There are a few short scenes during the first part of the end credits where news reports and a conspiracy theorist reveal there are other super beings, including a half-man/half-sea creature and a witch who chokes her victims with a rope. See more »
The UK version is cut in two scenes to reduce strong gory images in order to obtain a '15' rating. See more »
The film is strangely similar to Superman, Brandon Breyer having many similarities with Clark Kent: a staggering arrival on earth of an alien with a human appearance within a kind of meteorite, a secret adoption by a couple in the countryside, the famous red cape (obviously!) and a metal from the meteorite that seems to be the equivalent of kryptonite. But, if Clark strives to 'protect' the world, Brandon should all just 'take' the world! Jackson A. Dunn flawlessly interprets this enigmatic character.
6.4 of 10 on IMDb? Clearly underrated!
