Ok flick, nothing special and certainly too much cgi. WW84 and black panther mediocre, but not god awful like love and thunder
What if I made a film called white jon …wouldn’t that be racist 🤔

Let’s be honest, I love Dwayne Johnson, but he can’t even manage to market a superhero movie that fans just don’t know who Black Adam is and that’s why the film still continues to flop at the box office. I did saw the movie in IMAX and it was okay. I felt the story was bland, the CGI looked like a 1990’s version of The Outer Limits, Dwayne’s performance was hammy. and the villain is beyond boring. On the other hand, the only 4 characters that is the saving grace of this movie were Pierce Brosnan (the former Bond) as Doctor Fate (similar to Marvel’s Doctor Strange character), Aldis Hodge was awesome as Hawkman (Hawkman deserves an HBO Max series), The Adam Smasher was cool/funny, and Cyclone was very good. So I enjoyed it but a little skeptical on The Rock’s busy schedule on how not to use a shameless self-promotion to hype your fans on the “success” of Black Adam. Read the fine print, Rocky. Just like The Suicide Squad, it’s far from a success. So for fans who were so disappointed, I would rather rent the movie first before buying on DVD/Blu-Ray.
So many of these reviews have me in utter shock! This movie for me was amazing! Dwayne Johnson knew what he was doing with this film and to bring Superman back? That’s gold to me! I am looking forward it was is next with this. Not sure where people are seeing a “woke” side, but honestly many folks don’t really understand that term.
Okay, do people no longer have a sense of what makes a story have substance? This film is just vapid posing technological crap with an overly- Violent, illogical, disjointed storyline and ridiculously pretty hair. UTTER TOXIC ENTERTAINMENT!
Rick and other cast were Great! Little boy was kid of annoying but a Great movie overall
Is anyone else tired of the Rock? “Pro” wrestler turned action hero actor. It was clever for about two flicks.
Th Rock is awful in this boring movie
By the elites, their Pedo movies and wokeness!
I went to watch it since I was getting comments that it was good and when I had gone to watch it, was very disappointed. 2/5. Wouldn’t buy or rewatch it. I’ll see how the next second part turns out
money for stars
First let me say I hated this movie so much I asked for (and received) a refund. Dwayne Johnson said in numerous interviews that this movie is made for “the fans”. Well if that’s the case I guess I’m not a fan because I hated this movie. There is a very generic storyline with very little set up. This movie is nothing but CGI and slow motion shots. If all the slow motion scenes were played at normal speeds, this movie would probably be 30 minutes shorter. The best part was the last 60 seconds of the movie in the post credit scene.
One of the better DC movies. Pretty much nonstop action.

From the inspired song choices using classic songs, to the rampaging destruction, to the likability of the secondary characters, to the compelling backstory of Adam, Black Adam delivered as an exciting action film and a fine introduction to general audiences some of DC’s lesser known characters. It also was refreshing to see a lot of races included and it was done so without it feeling like it was being forced. In general, and partially because Adam himself is an anti-hero (played very well by Dwayne Johnson), the movie also was less predictable and generally a little more offbeat which was also refreshing. And a lot of credit must go to Pierce Brosnan for a great performance as Dr. Fate, a real highlight of the film.
They really need to stop using the Suicide Squad vibe to carry everything to DC. Just did not fit. Also, Amanda Waller/ Viola Davis’s character is just annoying and needs to be killed off. Good lord why is she still alive after all this time? Nothing special about her. Please let’s move on from that narrative.

literally saying the word ‘woke’ makes you look so racist/homophobic.
One of the best DC Film of the year.
iDC about the critics. Hands down The Rock
I had very low expectations so I was pleasantly surprised was interesting enough. It’s not the greatest film of all time but it was worth watching.
The wokeness ruined the movie.
I loved the movie from beginning to end. Can’t wait for the sequel.
There little to no story line in this really bad movie. I cared nothing for any of the characters. Two hours of non-stop violence doesn’t make a movie, hey folks you actually need a story.
Not good but really looking forward to the sequel. My friend said it’s called White Mike. Sounds great!
I PREORDERED IT AND I CANT WATCH IT WTH

It’s not bad, but if your a critic.. lol your gonna pick it apart.. for what it is I think it was good
I really enjoyed this movie. It was a huge action spectacle, which was incredibly entertaining. The Rock was perfectly cast as the character, and the Justice Society was pretty cool too. This is a great start to whatever DC Studios has to offer, which I am thoroughly looking forward to. By the way, welcome home, Superman.
Favorite actors but can’t do
Meh. Disappointing. A whole lot action that goes nowhere
The Young Truth
Captured Black Adams character very well
Was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did. Absolutely fantastic.
No character development in the movie. The movie had a ton of potential but they drop the ball with lack of character development
Love the Rock he’s my guy but this movie is just bad
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.
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
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…
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
