Sex & Nudity

  • During a scene, "Don't Stop Me Now" plays and the lyrics "I am a sex machine, ready to reload, like an atom bomb" can be heard
  • After Billy is changed into his adult superhero form, one of the things he does is visit a strip joint. Nothing inside is seen. Likewise, when Billy and his friends teleport away from Dr. Sivana, they arrive in the same strip club and all that is shown is from the outside again as the kids quickly leave through the front door with Mary covering the eyes of the youngest kid. One foster brother says - That's not really my thing.
  • When Shazam (Zachary Levi) leaves the strip club for the first time, Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) asks "Did you see any boobies? Did you see nipples?"

Violence & Gore

  • Several fight scenes throughout the movie, with little blood shown.
  • A doctor touches a door and disintegrates letting out a blood curdling scream.
  • A car accident leaves one person bloody and possibly mortally injured.
  • The antagonist unleashes his demons onto his father's board of directors. One of the man has his head bitten off and is then thrown headless through the skyscaper window. Another man is thrown through the window and screams to his death. Others are screaming for their lives and thrown up against the glass. Another man is stabbed to death by the sharp claws of a demon.
  • A boy is getting beaten up and bullied at school

Profanity

  • Numerous S words, Hell, Ass, Crap. suck balls, OMG*d.
  • Three uses of shit.
  • No F words except bleeped ones on a news cast
  • "Oh G--" said twice; "sh--", six times; "ass", three times; "hell", four times; "d--k", once; and a hand gesture.
  • The middle finger is shown several times.
  • About 7 uses of this s-word: three of these are by a 14 year old (trust me, i've seen this movie 4 times). two middle finger gestures by the same 14 year old. one use of d**k (non sexually). numerous uses of ass and its variations. Santa drops a few f bombs, but these are bleeped out. things like "oh my god" non religiously if that bothers you

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There is a scene where Shazam! and Freddie are sitting down and Freddie says "all the criminals are probably on drugs or asleep by now"

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are intense and at times scary scenes throughout the movies.
  • The "Seven Deadly Sins" are shown as gargoyle-like creatures, which are very scary looking and would likely be frightening to young children.

Spoilers

Sex & Nudity

  • Later on, the strip club is revisited as SHAZAM teleports back there in order to save his family from Dr. Sivana. The children express disgust while Freddy visibly enjoys the experience, remarking on how "they really seemed to need money."
  • When Billy meets the wizard, the wizard tells him to "touch his staff" (meaning his magic staff). Billy looks disgusted and says "Ew. Gross!"

Violence & Gore

  • In one very intensely violent scene, a man enters a conference room full of people at the top of a tall building. He throws one man crashing through the window to his death. He then releases demons that bite the heads off two people and massacre the rest, most of which we see through fogged conference room windows, but we still hear people screaming in terror.
  • One character's head enters the mouth of one of the gargoyle like sins and then shows it biting down.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There is a car crash in the beginning of the film, where a boy's father is badly injured.
  • Of all the DCEU films, this is easily the goofiest and most lighthearted film of the bunch, except for very frightening scenes of people being massacred by demons and burning into ash. May be too much for young children.
  • The antagonist receives his powers from the 7 deadly sins, shown as demonic creatures. In several scenes these demons kill people as they scream and attempt to get away.
  • There is a scene where, after defeating Dr. Sivana, Shazam seems momentarily seduced by the same orb of evil magic energy that empowered Sivana. However, just before he applied the orb to himself despite the pleas of his friends, Shazam reveals that it was just a joke and instead returns it to the Rock of Eternity for safekeeping.
  • In one very intensely violent and unsettling scene for a family film aimed at kids, a man enters a conference room full of people at the top of a tall building. He throws one man crashing through the window to his death. He then releases demons that bite the heads off two people and massacre the rest, most of which we see through fogged conference room windows, but we still hear people screaming in terror.
  • Multiple characters are thrown out the window to their deaths. The fall and landing of the characters are not shown but it is obvious what the villain intended when throwing them out.
  • A woman presses her hand against a door with magic symbols. She suddenly bursts into flames and turns into ash as she screams in agonizing pain.
  • The scene where Billy finds out his mother left him on purpose is very sad and upsetting.
