I walked into Hellboy with the knowledge of the existence of bad reviews. Being a huge Hellboy fan, I was adamant in watching this reboot wanting those reviews to be wrong. I wanted to see for myself what is redeemable and condemnable about the movie. When I walked out of the cinema, I was filled with a mixture of excitement, and surprisingly, apathy of what’s to possibly come because Hellboy (Disappointingly) wasn’t all that great.

Playbomb Reviews: Shazam! (Spoiler-Free)

Director: David F. Sandberg 
Main Cast:  Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer
Genre: Action, Comedy
Movie Run Time: 2hrs 12 mins

The creative writing and direction for Shazam! is like a captain who has snatched control of a ship and moved the rudder towards a better course; away from the sea’s craggy rocks. It’s a movie that, since Gal Gadot’s debut as Wonder Woman, does the DC Extended Universe justice with a warm story and light-hearted scenes. A little bit of that charm may have been taken away due to its little-too-long movie runtime, but it’s a small issue in perspective to what’s to (hopefully) come in DCEU’s future.
