Love the Rock he’s my guy but this movie is just bad
Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
He’s totally out of place here, giving off a total cringe worthy super hero performance. I’m surprised his agents let him go off this. Everything about this film is a total cringe fest.
Besides that there’s absolutely nothing special about this film. It’s a totally sub par movie with little chemistry.
Be prepared to see no content. I wish i could get a refund. Hard to sit and watch this movie as i always loved all the DC movies. But this one is just lacking content. I saw about 40 mins and it never got any better. Could not waste anymore time on it. I feel bad i wasted my $$ on it. I thought it would be exciting movie to have in my library for kids and grand kids. But its at the bottom of the bottom. Do yourself a favor and just watch it when its free. Not worth paying to buy it nor renting it.
Had to turn it off…..
I saw this in the theater and really enjoyed it. I don’t think I’ve liked a Dwayne Johnson movie to his much for some years now. But he really became a different character in this one. (I have not read the comics so I can’t compare to that) but as a film he’s definitely a formidable force and the other characters were like able and it had a good balance of action and comedy. The only thing was the touch of horror added wasn’t necessary. But other than that the movie was great. The ending also really makes me want to see a sequel but with the way WB Execs have rammed DC movies into the ground and potential sale to Universal I’m not holding my breath. Sadly. Maybe universal can fix things if they buy but I’m getting off topic.
I don’t like it…very boring
More woke agenda. Sad…
Reasoanably good story and good amount of action. I would just avoid expecting more from it. The mother / son parts can get slow at times.
Too expensive to rent cheaper to pirate
The fact that this movie is gaining a cult following is jaw dropping to me, I prefer DC over Marvel but I really disliked this in the theaters, so I decided to purchase this on Itunes so I could rewatch and give it another chance,
But this movie is still awful.
The story is nonsensical, and does not have a single original concept in it (Seriously, try to think of one thing in this movie that is not a cliche)
The visuals are alright, But still many shots look like a really expensive video game, Dwayne Johnson is literally playing Dwayne Johnson in a cape, Nobody involved in this movie actually cared about the source material, Absoulutely no connection or faithfullness to the comics Black Adam
(SPOILERS He literally destroyed his Throne at the end because "It didn't feel right", That is absolutely ridiculous for the charecter.)
This whole movie is just garbage, It is no diferent than the bland garbage Marvel is vomiting out, Next time DC wants a good movie they should hire creatives who actually apreciate and READ the source like Matt Reeves did for The Batman, and James Gunn for The Suicide Squad.
I only gave a 2nd star for Pierce Brosnan who was the only interesting thing in the entire film.
It is so sad that the Comic Book Movie industry has been taken over by hack writers that do not even read comics, and base their movies from Wikepedia articles and Reddit synopses of charecters/stories.
I loved seeing Pierce Brosnan in this, but everything fell flat. When I realized that they did a race swap, YET AGAIN, to please the woke and blm crowd, and replaced Hawkman with a black actor, I wasn’t interested in watching the movie. I found myself doing other things while this was playing in the background.
I am so tired of Hollywood feeling the need to change characters and make them black when they are not black in the comics at all. They did it to commissioner Gordon in The Batman, they did it to Hawkman in this and they did it with Anne Boleyn by making the actress black when Anne Boleyn was most definitely white.
Hollywood is only pandering at this point. What would they do if someone made a movie about Malcom X and made him Hispanic or Asian? The black community would be livid. But somehow Hawkman and Anne Boleyn are “perfectly fine” according to reviews? How does that work?? It’s utter woke hypocrisy.
I think I’m done with Marvel and DC and any other movie or show were they feel the need to race swap so they can pander to one race. I also noticed that there were hardly any white people in Black Adam except for Pierce Brosnan and the enemies. DC is trying to subtly tell us something, no? But of course this movie will be regarded as just fine, while if a white character is swapped for a black one then everyone will be expressing their opinions and hatred and probably cancel the director and writer and actors in that movie.
Dwayne Johnson did a great job playing Black Adam. This is a must see for DC fans and Marvel fans, too! Best superhero movie it the year without a doubt. Out of this world CGI graphics and well put together film. Best part of the movie is the end and it is a blessing to see the surprise. Enjoy!
Black Adam > Wakanda Forever
Thoroughly enjoyed this; a fun, funny popcorn movie with good fight sequences and special effects. Especially liked Aldis Hodge as Hawkman (loved him in Leverage) and Pierce Brosnan as Dr Fate. Post credits scene sets up something very cool, too…
Best movie ! Champ !!!
This has to be one of the worst movies I’ve ever watched 😢the story is terrible and one of the worst performances from otherwise great actors. I kept watching, hoping it would improve but to no avail. AVOID!
THIS MOVIE IS CLEAR HORRIBLE, showed Dwayne can’t carry movie myself Henceforth they need to add JSA in to movie. In causing the cancellation of Stargirl
It was a fun ride and keeping it real for the most part. Enjoyed The Rock as Black Adam.
Interesting scene with Superman after the credits. Guess they are taking Marvels idea and running with it
Such a great storyline and amazing action scenes!!! This was a truly awesome movie!!!
Black Adam was one best movies to come out of the DC World.
Best for the summer,been a long time I really wished to see Rock DC
Good Movie, Great Action, Beginning Scenes with Young Boy( which was Son) Should have been Elaborated On, in the beginning. ( we assumed the Rock was Young Boy. Until Middle of movie.( I would have liked those scenes A little Smoother)
This is one of the most SPECTACULAR movies ever!!!
Save your money, and more importantly your time! This movie sucked and had no storyline. Was also really boring! I fell asleep have way thru!
Loved the origin story and the character development
I liked it. You're gonna have a good time. Don't expect too much. Enjoy the ride.
It is consistent with the first 5 minutes of the film.🎥 If you can withstand the narrative then you can probably watch the full length film. The movie has horrible actors: a lot of them have cringe worthy vocals, making the movie difficult to watch.
This is not follow the comic and the movie has been twisted to meet a 2020 Agenda.
Story and character development is just terrible. Action was good but didn’t have any meaning behind it. I was bored. 2 stars for the cameo but what a waste of money
Really good movie from start to finish has a lot of action little walk through that’s interesting not boring keeps you wanting more a lil comedy all around great keep it coming back at it with black Adam need 34567891011
Good movie, I see no flaws.
Great CGI, ….very good
Over all, just bad.. complete over use of cgi and a lacking story that did not connect well. The soundtrack is pretty awful too.. does not move with the story or scenes. I did not even finish watching. The first wonder woman was proof that it is possible for DC to make a good movie, this movie, and just about every other one shows that they just don't care to. This is one of the very few times, no matter how bad the movie is, that I would actually like my money back.

If this movie is categorized as sci-fi I will not purchase. I’ll wait for the steelbook. Every and all others from marvel and DC is action, and so is this. Too bad it’s in the wrong genre section.
Nice special-effects but overall, the story or script doesn't work...very disappointing. Also, it seemed like the movie was a collection of scenarios that have already been accomplished in other past movies.
It amazes me that the way Warner Bros. decides to move on from the Zack Snyder era of the DCEU is to produce a movie that feels, moves and looks almost identically to a Zack Snyder movie. The slo-mo ramping, the desaturated imagery, the thudding, fist pumpingly predictable story beats…all of it.
If this is the new path for the DCEU, then the MCU will continue to reign for the foreseeable future.
Dwayne Johnson looks the part, there are some eye catching fx sequences, and Pierce Brosnan steals the show as Doctor Fate…but that, unfortunately, is about it.
THIS is the product of 15 years of so-called passionate development???
Wow! Best DC movie! This is a must watch.
Awesome movie I loved it
Fun family super hero movie
I loved the whole anti-hero angle.
What is going on with Rotten Tomatoes? This movie was awesome! Sooo many special effects, non-stop action. Stylized and cool. It wasn’t a perfect movie, but it was pretty darn awesome anyway. I was a HUUGE MCU fan until they destroyed it. This movie is by far better than any MCU movie or tv show since Endgame. Imo, the best DC movies were the first Wonder Woman, Man of Steel, and now Black Adam. Nothing else comes close. Just go in not expecting much, and you’ll probably be thrilled lol. I loved it. So fun.
A fun popcorn flick
From start to finish stayed giving 💥action!!
Lots of animated action, no story. It’s for kids, except for all the constant violence! You know that with The Rock as the star, it’s a “B” movie story-wise. He was never a good actor, just a sweet muscle man who always just acts himself. Who casted this movie, anyway? None of the cast were very good. But the animations and special effects were good. Especially all the explosions. 😜 I watched 3/4 so far; not really anxious to finish the rest.
Won’t play on Apple TV. Would love to leave a review but can’t even watch due to “There’s a problem loading this content”. Everything else works even the extras, all other purchases work, and I can even download it to the IPad but the movie itself won’t play.
The movie was awesome. Great special effects, great casting. Can’t wait to see the next one. Maybe Superman vs black Adam.
This movie was DOPE !!! DC has been coming out with straight bangers lately in their cinematic universe. An action packed super hero flick with some quality comedy moments. Black Adam & the JSA are must see TV, especially that cameo at the end.
Lots of good action and effects. The Rock 🪨 did an awesome job with his humor. Despite not talking too much. The Easter 🐣 Eggs were awsome, especially at the end of the Credits “Bad A**”
I enjoyed this movie. It was fun from start to finish. I even enjoyed some of the cameos that you see throughout and that after credit scene. The DCU is going in the right direction. 👍
No agendas, or lectures. Just a movie that sets out to entertain and that’s where the bad reviews come from by the critics. Not woke, hence no good. Buts it’s great! Better than than the phase 4 nonsense.
The Rock is... The Rock. There are A LOT of wild actions scenes, but the movie is a huge mess. It's basically another bombastic but subpar comic book film where you either turn off your brain to be somewhat entertained, or you're already a mouth-breather who is easily entertained by garbage.
Boring movie, nothing new.
Pure cringe and woke
Nope... go Woke, go Broke...
Dude the Rock becomes more irritating the more he’s in the limo light. And I know he’s half black half Hawaiian but even his father has light skin for a black man but the Rock looks more Hawaiian. What really irritates me is how they changed the tone of his skin darker to pull off the name Black Adam. It’s insulting to the audience plus his character is the mix between two already heroes Black Panther and Shazam.
Not the greatest superhero movie.
This movie is phenomenal rock was born to play black Adam the story is okay but the characters and there’s so much action like I’m being serious action it is brutal it is dark it is the most action in any dc movie once you see it you know why the villain wasn’t good and I don’t like the idea of a anti hero but it paid off won’t spoiler anything but stay after the credits you will lose your mind
Just an awesome feel good type of movie. You don’t need to be a comic buff to enjoy a superhero movie. Another reason critics reviews are way off from what actual audiences enjoy. Just go to a movie to enjoy it and do away with expectations. Would go and watch again, my kids loved it.
Awesome! Saw it last night and The Rock killed it. Straight Classic Super Hero movie right here. No Woke Hollyweird nonsense. It’s going to be great seeing The Rock and Henry Cavill as Superman in the future
The Rock delivered as promised! The movie was very good with lots of over the top action!! I really enjoyed Hawkman!!! Lots of great fight scenes too!!!!
Very sad to see what happened to this franchise
I really enjoyed it. Not perfect but what it does right its very right. The film needed to be longer to introduce everyone properly. Outside of that, the action was great and the thematics were interesting enough to give some context and weight to the things that were happening. You will not get bored watching this film and the after credit had EVERYONE cheering in the theaters…. Bravo!!!!
My son and I just got in from watching it and YES, FINALLY! Well done and the action was so good. The Rock nailed Black Adam and enjoyed the storyline. And the ending credits… D.C. better be FOR REAL! Don’t toy with us! Enjoy the film and looking forward to others thoughts.
Proof that the DCEU needs a complete reboot. This movie felt stuck in 2004.
It’s like DC ordered a movie from Wish. It’s was kind of like a good movie but everything just seemed different and off.
This movie is actually really good
the movie was better than I imagined. I loved the story and the characters. it was action packed and had me laughing too. the mid credit scene was definitely shocking but excited for the future of DC.
Dwayne Johnson was awesome! Am@zing
The story was alright, the action was phenomenal and the characters were great
Bedsides the usual hero tropes, a bland final boss I was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. Rare DC “W” unlocked
Omgggg!!!! Such a good movie the rock was the perfect pick, I loved it so bad even as a die hard marvel fan. ATOM SMASHER IS MY FAVORITE 😭😭😭💯
The Rock killed it. This movie was fantastic! Love the action. Black Adam is a beast.
This movie was a whole lot of fun, I saw it in the theater last night absolutely gonna buy. Not every movie is going to win awards, I don’t know why everything is charged harshly nowadays.
Movie is fantastic ! Plenty of action & has plenty of characters that have never appeared on the big screen . This movie is way better than she hulk ,black widow & even Thor love & thunder combined! Idk why critics have a low rating when this movie is way better !
This movie was so good. How a hero / anti-hero movie should be. Typical awesome action. This is a role the rock was born to play. Can’t wait for the future of the DCEU
Loved 🥰 this movie 🎥 It was a nice 😊 storyline plus the action scenes were plenty. Highly recommend this movie 🎦
The action and special effects were awesome and the Rocked portrayal of Black Adam was spectacular. While the villain was lacking, it was faithful the to Shazam mythos.
The movie was good the acting and CGI was awesome but the story needed more work
