SHAZAM! is a fantasy action adventure in which a fourteen-year-old boy gains the power to transform into an adult superhero every time he says 'Shazam'.

Violence

Stylised fight scenes include kicks and punches, and fights involving fantastical powers. There is also a scene in which two bullies repeatedly kick a disabled teenager, but the detail is masked and their behaviour is not condoned.

Threat and horror

Scenes of horror show statues of creatures with glowing red eyes coming to life to menace humans. It is implied that a creature eats a man's head off, but no detail is shown. There are also scenes of gun threat and a scene in which the hero saves people from a bus dangling off a bridge.

Sex

A teenager enters a Gentleman's club. A boy asks him if he saw any "boobies or nipples".

Language

There are bleeped uses of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'shit', 'screw', 'assbag', 'God', 'dip shit', 'dick', 'ass', 'douchebag', 'shit', 'Jesus Christ', 'butt' and 'crap'. There is also use of the rude middle finger gesture.
