Seeing and Believing 195: David Sandberg’s Shazam! and Garth Davis’s Mary Magdalene
DC takes another stab at the whole superhero-franchise thing this week with Shazam!, and the guys are on the case. Does the Big-inspired story of 14-year-old Billy Batson’s transformation into an adult-sized caped crusader have anything to recommend it? Also, just in time for Holy Week, Wade and Kevin offer their reviews of the long-awaited Mary Magdalene, the Rooney Marañstarring exploration of a commonly overlooked follower of Jesus Christ during Jesus’ earthly ministry.
