Black Adam

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Black Adam may end up pointing the way to an exciting future for DC films, but as a standalone experience, it's a wildly uneven letdown.

Audience Says

With lots of action, solid effects, and a story you don't have to be a comics fan to follow, Black Adam is one of the best DC movies to date.

Black Adam | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Larushka Ivan-Zadeh Metro Newspaper (UK) Even the rock-solid charisma of Dwayne Johnson rolls off a cliff with this noisy and disappointingly boring load of CGI-laden superhero tosh. A DCU fail. Dec 27, 2022 Full Review Black Adam | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Richard Brody New Yorker There’s something morally deadening and aesthetically depressing about the bottomless toy chest of C.G.I. being reduced to the toolbox of cinematic bureaucracy. Oct 28, 2022 Full Review Black Adam | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Trace Sauveur Austin Chronicle Black Adam is mostly a movie made up of strictly baseline ideas, or the regurgitation of already existing ones. Rated: 1.5/5 Oct 27, 2022 Full Review Black Adam | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Wesley Lovell Cinema Sight One of the most notable issues with Johnson as an actor is his constant mugging for the camera. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 5, 2023 Full Review Black Adam | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Mini Anthikad-Chhibber The Hindu Dwayne Johnson saves the day, despite some hiccups. Oct 4, 2023 Full Review Black Adam | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Ilan Preskovsky Channel24 (South Africa) Black Adam is clearly a major passion project for the Rock, and he clearly wanted to go for something of a more dramatic role, but it doesn't always feel like the film is making the best use of his talents. Rated: 3/5 Aug 17, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

ERIC S I DISLIKED THE FACT A DAD WHO LOST A SON WOULD FEEL HATRED AND ARROGANCE KNOWING HIS SON WOULDN'T WANT HIM LIKE THAT. ALSO, AT THE END, (SPOILER ALERT) WHY HAVE SUPERMAN INSTEAD OF THE ONE WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE ARCH ENEMY, SHAZAM, SHOW UP? OTHER THAN THESE ISSUES, IT WAS A DECENT MOVIE. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/01/24 Full Review Michael I don't even know where to begin. I honestly didn't like anything about this movie. Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review Matthew This movie had so much potential but was written so poorly. why beat up the good guy? put him in jail and then beg for his help at the end. great actors. good special effects. could have been a great movie. the writing sucked Rated 0.5/5 Stars • Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/04/23 Full Review Craig A little darker than Shazam. overall a pretty decent movie. the action was well executed. the acting was ok. Dwayne does well as Adam. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review Tyrone it's was solid dr fate was perfect Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/29/23 Full Review The Ron This is just a bad movie. I like The Rock but this is not good. Rated 1.5/5 Stars • Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 05/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews
