If you'd like to be totally surprised by the Black Adam film, I don't recommend you to watch the trailer at all. Otherwise, the first version of the trailer is safer to watch, as it's hard to make sense of the shots we see.

Review (spoiler-free) - Black Adam, movie (2022)

I've heard that a Black Adam movie is coming, but since I didn't know who Black Adam is, I didn't know what to make of that. I've seen the previous episodes of the DCEU series, so I thought that I'll also watch this. I've seen parts of the trailer, but I've managed to avoid watching the whole thing.

I've seen the Black Adam film with Hungarian dubbing.

The Black Adam movie is about a power struggle to gain control of a city.

The story is acceptable. The pacing and the storytelling is consistent (although a bit too slow). There is a character arc for the main protagonist. There were no major logical problems.

The cinematography is great. The scenes are interesting visually. The action scenes are easy to follow. The special effects look great.

The characters are okay. They are not particularly well developed, but they are good enough for an action movie. The actors chosen for the roles are good.

The music (by Lorne Balfe) is good, fitting the story.

Black Adam is an acceptable contemporary fantasy action film, that I think fans of the DC Extended Universe will enjoy.

My experience

I was not entirely satisfied with Black Adam (2022). I happen to like stories with well-thought, logical plots, and Black Adam tried to delivered that, but couldn't execute it properly.

Rating: Average (2 out of 3 points). Black Adam is a watchable film.

Enjoyment: Average (2 out of 3 points). Black Adam had some interesting scenes.

Rewatchability: I'm not sure. I think it's mostly the surprise of the story that makes you feel interested, but if you liked the action scenes, you'll like further watchings of Black Adam.

Chance of watching it again: Unlikely.

Chance of watching a sequel: High. I'd probably watch it.

Will you enjoy this?

If you like supernatural or fantasy movies, you might like Black Adam.

If you like action movies, you will probably like the Black Adam movie.

If you'd like to get comedic moments in your movies, there are some of those sprinkled into the Black Adam film.

If you enjoyed the previous DC Extended Universe movies, you might be interested in this story.

If you hate subtitles, be prepared, as there are some of those, when the characters speak ancient Kahndaqian.

If you prefer visuals over story, the movie looks good enough.

If you hate depiction of violence, you should probably avoid the Black Adam movie. And action movies altogether.

Do you need to read the original graphic novels to enjoy this?

I didn't read Black Adam stories, but I think I understand the film even without reading those comics.

Do you need to see the previous films to enjoy this?

Although knowledge of the Shazam! (2019) movie helps, there's enough explanation that you'll understand what's going on without seeing the previous films.

Watching for plot points

If you are interested in magical fantasy stories, I think it's worth watching the Black Adam movie for the plot points.

Should you watch this on your own screen at home, or is it worth going to the cinema?

The visuals probably look better if you watch it in cinema.

Review with spoilers - Black Adam, movie (2022)

I mostly liked the Black Adam movie, but it was far from good.

At 70 minutes I started to feel that the movie is too long. There are long stretches of actions without any tension, boring dialogue, while the plot doesn't go forward.


The covers of the movie are okay, they don't spoil the story.

The trailer

The trailer is okay, although it spoils some minor parts of the movie.

If you prefer spoilers, it's a good trailer for the Black Adam film. If you prefer to avoid spoilers, it might make the movie less fun for you.

Promise of the first scene

We see the story of a kid who gets magical powers to defeat an evil king. Based on the premise, I assume that the kid will return in the present, and do some good deeds.

Execution: We got something like that, sure. I'd say I'm okay with the promise.

Plot summary / Synopsis

2.600 BCE, Kahndaq: There was a prosperous city, that was conquered by a king (Marwan Kenzari as King Akh-Ton), who wanted to make the Crown of Sabbac with the help of black magic. The king needs a magical metal, so the enslaved population is sent to the mines. One of the slave kids (Jalon Christian as Hurut) try to steal the magical metal, and when the kid gets caught by the guards, he gets transported by the Council of Wizards. He gets the power of Shazam, but by the time he gets back to the king, the crown is complete. The kid defeats the king, and the crown gets hidden by the Council of Wizards.

Now: The city is now ruled by a criminal organisation (Intergang), who are looking for the Crown of Sabbac. A group of people also try to find the crown before the criminals do. They find an ancient place, with the crown inside, but they are found by the criminals. Using the carvings, one of them, a woman (Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz) summons the old champion (Dwayne Johnson as Teth-Adam / Black Adam). The champion starts killing the criminals, while the woman leaves with the crown. Although the champion defeats the army of organisation, a missile made out of the magical metal hurts him and takes him out. The woman takes him away.

The champion wakes up in the home of the woman. They beg him to be their hero against the oppressors, but the champion is not interested, so he flies away. The child of the woman harasses the criminals until they attack him, so the champion arrives to save him.

When the US realises that an ancient being is awake, they set up a team of heroes (the Justice Society) to detain him. The leader of the secret organisation (Viola Davis as Amanda Waller) sends a girl who can manipulate winds (Quintessa Swindell as Maxine Hunkel / Cyclone), a guy (Noah Centineo as Albert "Al" Rothstein / Atom Smasher), a magician (Pierce Brosnan as Kent Nelson / Doctor Fate), lead by a man (Aldis Hodge as Carter Hall / Hawkman). They arrive to stop the champion from killing all of the criminals. During the fight, the magician realises that the crown is held by the woman, but she gives it to her son (Bodhi Sabongui as Amon Tomaz). The team tells the woman that the champion is not who she thinks he is, it was his rage that almost destroyed the city once. That's why they've arrived to save the place to prevent that from happening again. The Council of Wizards imprisoned him in the place where he was woken.

The criminals find it out that the son has the crown, so they try to take it from him. The champion goes to stop them, but the criminals capture the son, and take him to their lair. The champion goes there, and killing everyone, including their leader (Marwan Kenzari as Ishmael Gregor / Sabbac), who is revealed to be a descendant of the old king. The team saves the son from the destruction.

The champion tells the team his story - it was his son who got the power of the champion. The king wanted to hurt the real champion, so they attacked his family, and killed his mother. The real champion gave his power temporarily to his wounded father to save him, when soldiers attacked again, and the kid was killed. The power of the champion remained with the enraged father, who almost destroyed the city to avenge his son and wife.

Then he gives away his power by talking the magic word, so the team could take him away to a safe place (the Task Force X base). They put him in a cryo-chamber to prevent him from speaking.

It turns out that the leader of the criminals got killed by the champion on purpose, so he'd get into the Underworld. The evil demons create a evil champion out of him, by saying the magic words (Sabbac). They send him back to the real world, infused with fire-based powers. As the magician has a vision, he decides to act on it, and to save his team mates, he close them out with a force field, intent on sacrificing himself to defeat the evil champion. With his magic, he lets the champion out of his prison, as he is the only one able to defeat the evil champion. The evil champion kills the magician, and sits on the throne.

This summons undead warriors into the city. The champion returns, and kills the evil champion. This makes the undead warriors disappear.

The leader of the secret organisation asks the champion to stay in his own city, otherwise, they'll beat him. Superman (Henry Cavill as Clark Kent / Superman) arrives to talk to the champion.

The setting

The story is set on a fantasy Earth, probably the 2020s. In this world, magic works, and there are extra-terrestrial aliens.

The Crown of Sabbac

A magical crown, infused with the power of six demons from the ancient world. It is made of Eternium.

It has an inscription, saying "Life is the only way to death". But if you turn the crown upside down, and mirror the letters, it says "Death is the only way to life".


A magical metal, that can only be found in Kahndaq.

It can be used to make technology work better.

Weapons made of eternium can hurt Black Adam.


In 2.600 BCE, it was the centre of prosperity and knowledge. The city was conquered and enslaved by King Akh-ton.

A kid, Hurut, tried to lead a rebellion against the king, but he was captured. When he was about to be executed, the wizard Shazam teleported him away, and the Council of Wizards give him magical powers. He returns to the city, but by that time the soldiers of the king kill his mother, and seriously wound his father. He temporarily gives his magical powers to his father so he could heal, but the soldiers kill the him while he is powerless. The enraged father, still having the powers goes on a rampage. The Council of Wizards decide to imprison him in a cave. He gets freed in the present by Adrianna Tomaz.

In the present, the city is ruled by the Intergang criminal organisation. Their leader is Ishmael Gregor, who is the descendant of King Akh-ton. He is looking for the Crown of Sabbac, so he would be able to wield magical powers.

Black Adam

When he says the magic word (Shazam), it turns him into a magical being. This also causes the destruction of the area. When he says the magic word again, he loses the power.

He is able to fly. He can move incredibly fast.

He is immune to small arms fire, autocannon shells, even to regular missiles. Missiles with eternium warheads are able to hurt him. Hawkman's punch or use of weapons made of enth metal pushes him back. The fire-lightning of Sabbac creates wounds on him.

He can tear a truck in two with a single movement.

He can clap his hand to create shockwaves that blow people away.

He can project lighting. He can heal his wound with his lightning. Hawkman is able to catch the lightning with his mace, and project it back to Black Adam, hurting him slightly.

He can understand and speak any language.


He seems like a regular human, who gets super-human abilities by wearing a Hawkman suit, made of enth metal.

He has a special plane, also made of enth metal.

He can lift a small truck.

He is able to change his mace into an axe.

Dr. Fate

He is a regular human, who gets magical powers from a helmet from another planet.

He can project multiple copies of himself to do his bidding.

He can create force fields.

Atom Smasher

His uncle is the original Atom Smasher, and he inherited the powers and the suit.

He can grow his size, and becomes stronger and heavier as he grows.


She is a regular human, but when she was 15, she was kidnapped by a mad scientist, and she was injected with nano-bots she can control. She can use these nano-bots to heal people or to control winds.


He was a regular human, until he died, and got infused with the power of Sabbac by the demons of the Underworld.

When he sits on the throne, he is able to summon undead warriors from the Underworld.

He can generate fire-lightnings.

Hawkman's axe, made of enth metal, is able to wound him. Black Adam is able to tear him in half.

Plot points of interests

The were a couple of additions to the setting and characters.


Intergang: A criminal organisation, ruling Kahndaq. They are probably lead by Ishmael Gregor.

Justice Society: A group of super-human heroes. The core members are Dr. Fate and Hawkman. They are joined by Atom Smasher and Cyclone on this mission.

Task Force X: A secret government organisation, lead by Amanda Waller. The Justice Society works for them.

The Council of Wizards: A group of wizards, who give the powers of Shazam to the chosen ones.

New characters - Past

Hurut: A boy who started a revolt. The son of Teth-Adam. He got the powers of Shazam from the Wizard Shazam.

King Akh-Ton: A king who conquered Kahndaq, and enslaved the population to mine Eternium.

Teth-Adam: The father of Hurut. He got the powers of Shazam from his son.

The Wizard Shazam: Saved Hurut from execution, and gave him the powers of Shazam. A member of the Council of Wizards.

New characters - Present

Ishmael Gregor / Sabbac: The descendant of King Akh-Ton. A leader of the Intergang. When he gets killed by Black Adam, he goes into the Underworld, where he gets infused with the power of Sabbac, and sent back to the real world. Then he gets killed by Black Adam again.

Changes to characters


Characters killed

Ishmael Gregor / Sabbac: First, he was killed by the explosion created by Black Adam. Then he was torn in half by Black Adam.


Enth metal weapon: Able to change shape into different kinds of weapons. They probably cause more serious damage than regular weapons. Used by Hawkman.

Eternium warheads: They probably cause more serious damage than regular warheads. Used by the Intergang soldiers.

Hawkman suit: A suit made of enth metal. Enables the wearer to fly. It probably also gives additional strength. Worn by Hawkman.

Helmet of Fate: Came from another planet. Enables the wearer to wield magical powers. Shows predictions of the future. Used by Dr. Fate.

Jetbikes: Eternium is used in their creation, enabling them to fly and hover. Used by the Intergang soldiers.

Analysis of the story - Black Adam, movie (2022)

I mostly liked the story, beyond the slow speed I didn't find major problems that would have prevented me from enjoying Black Adam.

The message of the story

The world needs people who are ready to kill even innocents for a seemingly just cause.

The structure of the story

The scenes of the Black Adam film are mostly played in sequence, following the same storyline. There are a couple of flashback scenes that shed light on past events.

There's no single viewpoint character.

It has the usual arc of the dramatic structure - introduction, action, resolution.

Things I liked

  • I liked the twists of the story.
  • I liked the moment when Black Adam refuses to do the bidding of others (even though he changes his mind almost immediately).
  • The action scenes were interesting (even though most of them lacked tension).
  • The music was good.

Problematic elements

The title: The title "Black Adam" is somewhat lacklustre for me, especially as I don't know anything about the character. Using the name of the main protagonist as the title might be okay for the first instalment of the series, but adding something more descriptive would be helpful to differentiate the films from each other. I have to admit that "Black Adam and the Justice Society: Quest for the Crown of Sabbac" wouldn't have impressed me either.

The message: I don't like it that the movie seems to imply that killing innocents and causing careless destruction is okay, if your cause is seemingly just.

Also, it looks like the heroes of the Justice Society consider it perfectly normal that a criminal empire oppresses a whole nation, as long as it's not done by a super-powered human, because then they immediately go to root out the evil. For me it shows that these super-humans are just narcissistic enforcers instead of paragons of virtue.

The first kill: When a criminal approaches Black Adam, his first reaction is to violently kill the guy. Adam doesn't even know what the guy wants yet. It seems pretty evil for me, not just "reluctant hero" or "anti-hero" stuff.

Careless destruction: Even though the Justice Society constantly lectures Black Adam about how to do things properly, they are just as careless as he is. The members of the society don't protect the innocent civilians of the city, they don't create forcefields around the battlefield to contain the damage, even though they have the ability to do that. We don't see them paying for the destroyed buildings and vehicles, treatment or burial of the people who got damaged.

Ishmael getting killed by Black Adam: Ishmael probably got himself killed on purpose, so he'd get into the Underworld. However, for this, he shouldn't have waited this long. Also, I'm not even sure if he had the crown on himself when he died, so I don't even know if the crown factors into this in any way.

The blond woman: The woman at the prison was played as if we should have known her, although she hasn't been introduced in this movie. I assume she was in some previous story, but they could have at least some seconds on her before that scene, to show her importance.

De-powered Black Adam escaping: When Dr. Fate lets Black Adam out of the cryo-chamber, he is probably confused, weakened, and he is just an ordinary middle-aged human. It's unlikely that he would be able to win against a team of modern specialist soldiers in body armour. Then he gets into the water - the water pressure could harm him, but the ascension would certainly hurt him, as he is going faster than the recommended 10 meters for a minute.

Pacing: There are too many stories pack into one movie. This bloats the story, making it less exciting.

Lack of tension: Most of the battles were predictable, so watching super-powered people punch each other for minutes was not that entertaining. At least they tried to look these battles interesting.

The personality of Black Adam: For a quick moment it looks like that Black Adam refuses to do the bidding of others, but then he is quickly tricked into doing just that. This makes Black Adam look either stupid or weak willed. Although a weakness for a superhuman is a good thing, but then the story doesn't build upon this.

Introducing loads of new characters: I'm a little undecided on this one. DCEU movies started by building the setting as if the only super-powered characters were the main protagonists of the movies - Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, then the Flash and Cyborg. Even Shazam! was the origin story of the Marvel Family. However, after Suicide Squad and The Suicide Squad, things started to change, and it turned out that there are plenty of super-powered beings in the world. Now, the Black Adam movie also introduces a team of "new" characters, some of whom have been active for at least a hundred years. While this adds to the feeling that we only get glimpses of what's happening in this world, it also takes away the wonder of watching the most important parts of their history. Black Adam feels like some "made for TV" story or a "B-movie", compared to the epic of Justice League.

Unanswered questions

  • Where did the Crown of Sabbac go? We see it disappear, then it's not seen again.
  • What happened to the soldiers of the secret prison? Did Black Adam kill them?
  • How many innocents were hurt in Kahndaq by the destruction caused by Black Adam?
  • As it occured to Filmento, why does Sabbac try to kill the locals, when he wants to be their king? Who will he be ruling above, if everyone is killed?

* * *

Possibilities of improvement

  • Cut 30 minutes from the beginning: We could start by the gathering of the Justice Society, and we could see glimpses how Black Adam disposes of the soldiers of a foreign country. Keep the scenes with Ishmael, so we could see his incentive to get the crown. Black Adam should be in the prison by 60 minutes instead of 90.

How it could have been better?

Make the villain an underdog: Filmento's idea is that Ishmael Gregor could be just one of the local underlings of the Intergang, bossed around. As the Intergang mercenaries look down on locals, they would treat him with disrespect. That is why he wants to get the crown to achieve the power to do the things he wishes, instead of being told what to do.

* * *

How does it compare to the other works of the creators?

From the writer (Adam Sztykiel), I've seen Rampage (2018), that was okay. Black Adam was similarly mediocre.

I haven't seen any other works of the writer (Rory Haines).

I haven't seen any other works of the writer (Sohrab Noshirvani).

From the director (Jaume Collet-Serra), I've seen Unknown (2011), that was okay. Black Adam was probably on par with that.

How does it compare to the original source?

I haven't read a single Black Adam story, so I have no idea. I've read some stories where Black Adam was a background character, but that didn't make much of an impact on me.

Black Adam: Some versions of the character are straight-out villains. The movie makes him a reluctant hero. I can't really see him become a deadly menace, trying to kill Shazam.

The origin of Black Adam: The original version got him chosen as a champion and empowered, but his powers corrupted him. A later version (since 2011) shows that originally another champion was chosen, and Black Adam takes the powers from him. In the movie, he is given the power from the champion, he doesn't have to take it.

The setting: The first Black Adam stories set his place of origin in Egypt, later versions (since 2006) in Kahndaq. The movie uses Kahndaq.

Adrianna Tomaz: She was originally Andrea Thomas, and had the power of Isis. In the recent versions, she is called Adrianna Tomaz, and received the power of Isis from Black Adam. In the movie, although she carries the medal of Isis, she has no powers yet.

Intergang: In the comics, they were mercenaries used by Darkseid. In the movie, they seem to be independent, although at least one of their leaders follow the demons of the Underworld.

Ishmael: In the comics, he is Russian, in the movie he is Middle-Eastern. He stole the magic from the original wielder of the power of Sabbac. In the movie, he was the descendant of King Akh-Ton, allowing him to get the powers from the demons.

Doctor Fate: In the original comics, he gets his powers from Nabu. In the film, Nabu is not named, but he gets his powers from the Helmet of Fate.

How does it compare to the other films in the series?

I have to admit that the only DCEU film I really liked was The Suicide Squad, while the rest of the series had their own problems. I liked Wonder Woman, but it was just as bloated as Black Adam - both of them basically had two stories squeezed into one movie.

I think the Black Adam film fits into the DCEU perfectly, I just wish this was a higher standard.

* * *

Behind the scenes

The story of the movie was made up of parts cut from previous movies. Originally, he was to be featured in the Shazam! (2019) film, as the antagonist of Shazam. Then, he was to be in The Suicide Squad (2021), as an antagonist to be apprehended by the Suicide Squad. Some of the elements from Shazam! remained, while the Suicide Squad was replaced by the new characters of the Justice Society.

Uses for the film - Black Adam, movie (2022)


  • Set in a contemporary fantasy setting (DC Extended Universe).


  • When the Intergang soldiers engage Black Adam, it could be used to depict a super-human fighting against regular soldiers.
  • When the Justice Society fights Black Adam, it could be used to depict super-powered people fighting.
  • When Black Adam gets out of the prison, it could be used to depict some tough guy getting out of a high-tech prison.



Scenario ideas - Role-playing game scenario ideas


Scenario ideas - Wargame scenario ideas

Find the objective: Both sides want to get an objective, hidden in the area. The stronger side has more models, and they are more effective in combat. The weaker side has more information, so they have a better chance of finding the objective, and they can set the guardian of the area free.

Transferable power: One side has a super-human model, that can lend his power temporarily to other friendly models they are touching.

Get free: A prisoner gets out of their prison due to a malfunction. The prisoner wants to escape. The guards want to capture the prisoner.

Magic-user (harder for the guards): The prisoner is a super-human magic user, who had his powers removed in the prison. It takes the prisoner one full round of action to remove his bonds, and get his powers back. From the beginning of the next turn, the prisoner will get super-human powers, and the guards are probably doomed. The prison guards have to keep him occupied, to deny him the chance.

Random removal (easier for the guards): Every time the prisoner wants to remove the bonds, roll a d6. On 1-3, the bonds are removed. On 4-6, he has to keep trying.

Reach the objective: The attacker wants to reach a target objective. Holding it allows them to summon extra models / give extra strength to their forces. The defender wants to prevent this from happening.

Miniatures - 1/50-1/60 (28-32mm scale)

Atom Smasher: Human-sized (S3) / Ultra Giant (S8) human male warrior.

Black Adam: Human-sized (S3) human male warrior.
