Superhero Action: A group of young superheroes must prevent a trio of age-old goddess siblings from wreaking havoc upon their city in their quest to reclaim mystical abilities surpassing their current powers.

It's now been a few years since Billy Batson (Asher Angel) was given special superhero powers by a wizard named Shazam (Djimon Hounsou) and then used those to similarly empower his foster siblings Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer), Mary (Grace Caroline Currey) Eugene (Ian Chen), Pedro (Jovan Armand) and Darla (Faithe Herman), unbeknownst to their foster parents, Rosa (Marta Milans) and Victor Vasquez (Cooper Andrews).

By using the word "Shazam!" they turn into adult versions of themselves -- Billy (Zachary Levi), Freddy (Adam Brody), Eugene (Ross Butler), Darla (Meagan Good), Pedro (D.J. Cotrona), and Mary (Grace Caroline Currey) -- and fight crime in Philadelphia. But their biggest challenge arrives in the form of a trio of ancient goddesses -- known as the Daughters of Atlas: Hespera (Helen Mirren), Kalypso (Lucy Liu), and Anthea (Rachel Zegler) - who want to regain the strong magic power that Shazam earlier took from them.

Still possessing some magic of their own, they set out to do that, with Hespera and especially Kalypso not worried about any collateral damage they might cause in the process. But Anthea is more careful, especially after developing a sweet spot for Freddy despite their age difference numbering in the thousands of years.

Once the young superheroes learn of the sisters' plans, they do what they can to stop them and save their city from death and destruction.

If they liked the first film, they probably will.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
