"Shazam !" is a superhero type movie largely filmed in the Toronto area. The plot is about a 14 year old foster kid who connects with a wizard and gets super hero abilities. Zachary Levi has the lead role as the adult Shazam and Asher Angel plays him as a kid. The always good Mark Strong plays the villain of the piece who wants to steal SHazam's powers. As you would expect, the special effects & CGI scenes are very well done. I found the movie quite long at just over 2 hours, and it seems to be aiming for a younger demographic. I give it 5/10 but it's highly rated on imdb at 7.7
