Dog’s Movie House: “Shazam! Fury Of The Gods” Is A Fun, Heartfelt Superhero Film With Nods To The Great Ray Harryhausen!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at David F. Sandberg’s “Shazam! Fury Of The Gods,” a sequel to the original 2019 film that brings much of the humor and action to the screen in highly entertaining fashion. In this film, Billy Batson (Asher Angel) has a lot on his plate: he’s worried about aging out of his foster home and doesn’t believe he’s worthy of holding the powers of Shazam! He and his foster family are trying to be heroes but their exploits are riduculed by the press and Billy is having trouble keeping the group together, specifically Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) who wants to go solo with his super powers. Things take a dark turn when the Daughters Of Atlas (Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu) show up and want to take revenge on the human realm for stealing their powers and destroying their realm. When his family is put out of action, it’s up to Billy to become the hero he was always destined to become to save the world.
