For KIds

Shazam is so appropriate. i took my seven and eight year old's to watch it in the cinema. my seven year old has anxiety and is easily frighted, and loves Shazam. There is nothing inappropriate at all. the demons are not even scary. my seven year old person's friend wanted to watch it, but couldn't because of the overrated raiting.

Shazam review

Some language is said only a couple times including s--t a-- and other words. The violence is not intense but a few scary parts for younger viewers.
