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

Sex & Nudity

  • Boy at the 9 minute mark thirsting on a baseball player in an open shirt explaining what his appeal for the sport was.
  • One character briefly shows significant cleavage in night clothes
  • When Mary is hit, we can clearly see her breasts.
  • Shazam has a brief sexual interest in Wonder Woman because how revealing she is.

Violence & Gore

  • Scenes include superpowered people and monsters battling using fantastical powers which turns victims' eyes black and makes them do whatever their bewitcher commands, such as attacking others or, in one scene, leap to their death from a high building.
  • People are turned to stone, crushed by falling debris, crash their cars, or fall off a bridge.
  • A person is impaled from the back and left for dead due to treachery.
  • A beloved teacher is mind-controlled to commit suicide. He jumps from a high roof and dies (offscreen); Calypso remarks, "I forgot how easily they burst... like grapes."
  • A man turned to stone is knocked over, causing the stone to shatter and killing the man.
  • Two bullies punch a disabled boy in the stomach, causing him to fall over. They then smash his walking device and attempt to stuff him into a trash can, but a teacher intervenes.
  • A girl remarks that she wanted to "rearrange the internal organs" of two bullies.
  • A wizard pulls a rusty stick out from under his own fingernail, drawing blood. It is quite uncomfortable and intense, although the wizard is not hurt by the act and then the stick is revealed to be magic.
  • A man is shoved face-first into the bars of a prison cell.
  • SWAT teams and police with machine guns are shown, but their bullets have little to no effect on the creatures they shoot at.
  • Some violent fistfights


  • Two incompleted uses of "fuck," one starting with "mother-." Other expletives include 'shit,' 'balls,' 'ass,' 'dick,' damn,' and 'hell' respectively.
  • Uses of shit, fart, bitch and an incomplete use of motherfucker by a young girl.
  • Billy goes to use the term "goddamn" and changes the ending to "darn" after seeing his parents watching him.
  • 8 misuses of God's name, paired with damn a few times.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One of the heroes who might be 21 but it is not explicitly stated, "went to the eye doctor", but she is clearly hungover and wearing sunglasses indoors.
  • A boy makes a (joking) comment that he and his siblings were out doing drugs and smoking weed. He is not serious.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Like in the first one, there are a lot of frightening monsters, plus an extreme body count, though never shown on screen. Moderate.
  • Quite a few disturbing deaths of minor characters (see violence and gore), but most of the deaths are either offscreen or only shown briefly from a distance.
  • Some mild family drama that may be intense to some viewers, including talk of foster kids aging out of the system, child abandonment, coming out as gay, and romance with older women.
