Shazam! Fury of the Gods Parents Guide

Shazam! Fury of the Gods Parents Guide

I was able to screen Shazam! Fury of the Gods in order to write this Shazam! Fury of the Gods Parents Guide. All opinions are my own.

I am a big fan of the first Shazam! movie. I really liked it and thought Zachary Levi did a fantastic job along with the other cast. In the second one, it felt like everything I wanted was addressed. I loved seeing the lives of the characters, how they had grown (together and apart), how they were dealing with having powers, and all the other things you think about when a first movie ends.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods has such fantastic special effects. The dragon and other mythical creatures are so life-like. The chemistry was great between the characters. I really loved how Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer) shined in this movie, and how much Billy Batson (Asher Angel) had grown up. With so many new elements being introduced, it was really fun to see the character growth and the overall theme of the movie (family).

It is packed with action, laughs, and some emotional parts. Be ready for it all. There are some pretty grotesque parts (especially during the God battle and at the beginning) and some language. You can read more about all of that below in our parents guide.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods is rated PG-13 for sequences of action and violence, and language. It runs for 2hr 10m.

There are TWO end-credit scenes for Shazam! Fury of the Gods. It has a “fancy” end credits section, and then shows an end credit scene, then rolls all the credits and shows another end credit scene. So wait until the very end. Just a heads up – there is some language in both of these.

Sex & Nudity & Innuendos –  1/5 – Uses of the phrases “suck balls” and use of the word dicks. A character is portrayed as gay (two small scenes with words and nothing more). It shows naked statues (in a European museum).

Violence & Gore – 3/5 – Intense battle scenes. It shows characters being killed, stabbed, electrocuted, turned into ash, attacked by monsters, and more.

Profanity – 3/5 – Several overs of God (most in reference to the Gods), use of hell, shit, damn, dick, balls, ass, GD, and one (not very great cut-off pronouncement of Mother Fuc…..).

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking – 0/5 – If any is shown, it’s in the background

Frightening & Intense Scenes – 3/5 – There are several intense scenes and some frightening scenes that may not be suitable for children. A character can coerce other characters into doing things and their eyes turn black and their face looks creepy when under the spell. Characters are turned to stone. Shows a man digging a splinter from under his fingernail. Monsters breaking out of grotesque egg sacks. The monsters also look creepy (all sorts of mythical creatures). Characters are shown dead and injured.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods is a great movie packed with action and laughs. I would recommend 10 and older (and only if your 10-12-year-olds are familiar with other superhero movies and won’t be frightened). If you aren’t sure – go screen it first. It is so good, you won’t mind seeing it twice!
