Film Synopsis: Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods – and also imprisoned just as quickly – Black Adam (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
Trav’s Critique On “BLACK ADAM” ➡️ I can go back and forth with Black Adam – and still not get my point across about what I feel the entire film about. In theory, I felt that the movie was electric and very moving! Not because of the power that Black Adam, but the overall message that the film portrayed to me. When I first heard the word, SHAZAM in the film; I thought that they were showing that movie! LOL!
I was laughing so hard inside to myself like what the hell? Oh, no they are going too far now with this SHAZAM thing now! LOL! The point of Black Adam was like every other Superhero movie that has ever been made – to make and maintain the world as a more peaceful and delightful/safe place to live and co-exist. The powers that Black Adam had everyone saw him as a hero; but that is the thing about powers – it is up to the recipient of those powers to use them for either good or bad.
IF someone is gifted with powers and they kill a bad person with those powers – do you automatically want to see that hero as a villain now? Will you still see him or her as a hero or a Savior? That is what Black Adam was facing in the entire film. That is what the film was about in my eyes, and from my perspective. Sure, the film had comedy in it and I always until the day I die will think that it is funny as hell when a Superhero comes to the current day and try to adapt to our way of life and see a TV and zaps it or walks through a wall or tries to talk “hip” or think of “catch phrases.”
That will ALWAYS be funny and comical to me and yes, The Rock did that perfectly well! Black Adam had the mindset that he was immortal and undefeatable. But I will admit that the way Black Adam was throwing those bad men all around and saving people, fighting – I ABSOLUTELY LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! That, to me, is the wrong mindset to have whether or not if you are a Superhero or not. NO ONE is immune or immortal except all mighty God.
I realize that this was only a movie; but in life today there are so many people who think that they are invincible, and nothing will happen to them, and they can go around and do hurtful, and vindictive things to others and nothing will come back around, and karma will not happen to them; or they will not get old and frail or age.
People need to stop and think that the harm that they give to others will come back on them in some manner, form, shape, or fashion. I loved the film, and I had the opportunity to see it in Dolby and I wish my theater had Dolby 3D – if it did, this would be one of those films that I would have seen in Dolby 3D! In closing, the film was dynamic, and I suggest that you watch it – you will NOT be disappointed at all! It is the best 2 hours and 14 minutes of your life!
Revenge Is a Dish Best Served….Hmmm…Why don’t I let YOU, personally fill this one in, folks! LOL! #TonightWithTrav
