Family guide to new movie releases

Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service on

Published in Parenting News


Rated PG-13 for sequences of action and violence, and language.

What it’s about: The sequel to 2019's "Shazam!" finds the unlikely kid superhero battling, well, some furious gods.

The kid attractor factor: The superhero genre, young cast and juvenile tone will draw younger audiences.

Good lessons/bad lessons: Rely on your family, you're all heroes and gods based on how you act and treat others around you.

Violence: Philadelphia gets utterly destroyed by mythological monsters. Lots of loud action and violence but no gore.


Language: Some strong language.

Sex: None

Drugs: None

Parents’ advisory: Fine for older kids and teens — too violent for little ones.
