Black Adam (2022): Movie Review

Black Adam (2022): Movie Review

Plot: The world needed a hero. It got Black Adam.

Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the Egyptian gods and imprisoned just as quickly-Black Adam is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.

Review: Teth-Adam, a supreme being portrayed by Dwayne Johnson, saves the nation of Kahdaq. 

However, he has been buried in a holy mountain for ages, and in that time, enemies have pillaged his nation.

Adrianna, who is ostensibly some sort of scholar, reawakens Teth-Adam. 

The Justice Society has been sent to stop Adam in the meanwhile by Viola Davis. 

NOTE: The movie does a wonderful job of broadening the DCEU by presenting fresh faces and settings.  

HITS: The movie hardly slows down from the start to the finish. It is packed with action and features both humor and darkness.

FLOPS: The films continue to draw criticism because audiences want more from the DC EU; I hope to see improvement in their upcoming movie.
