This is Paul Salfen with your KLAK Movie Minute. In theaters this weekend is Black Adam, the new DC superhero flick starring The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson and what a spectacle it is. For those that were fans of the comics, this one will bring joy to see characters like this and Hawkeye to the big screen, but, of course, just like anything in comic fandom, will also come with plenty of backlash because it doesn’t look or sound like the source material. That said, Johnson is a star and always a joy to watch on screen. But add in the talents of Aldis Hodge, Noah Centenio, Sarah Shahi, Pierce Brosnan, and Viola Davis along with sharp production and direction and you’ve got box office gold. Will that mean critics will love it? Absolutely not. But will you love it? If you love big popcorn movies and The Rock? You bet. Is it the best DC entry? No? Is is on par with the best of Marvel? No. But it’s quite loud, wild, fun, and for sure a crowd pleaser so take it for what it is and smell what The Rock is cooking. That’s it for this week and join me next week and every week for another Movie Minute right here on 97.5 KLAK and AMFM Magazine.
