Skepticism was widespread before this film was released. There are few people who confidently comment on whether this movie can continue to be a success because DC is inherently lackluster. However, this movie turned out to be able to answer all the worries of the audience who watched the early screening of the movie ‘Black Adam’ last Tuesday in Jakarta (October 18).

Black Adam movie synopsis (2022)

Set against the backdrop of the ancient city of Khandaq, it is said that Teth Adam was originally a slave, before he finally acquired superhuman strength that left him in chains for 5000 years, before he was. can be free in the modern era.

Summary Black-Adam




In the modern era, the city of Khandaq has been controlled by an evil organization called the Intergang, which keeps the city’s citizens under the rule of foreign armies. At a checkpoint, archaeologist Adrianna (Sarah Shahi) and her team are searching for the long-lost Sabbac crown artifact that gives the wearer dark powers. His search leads him to a tomb that does not contain the crown, but also the almighty Teth-Adam (Dwayne Johnson).

Adrianna’s presence awakened him to the modern day, thereby saving him from being ambushed by confederate soldiers. His brutal methods and perverse view of justice cause Black Adam’s actions to attract the attention of the American Justice Association, led by Carter Hall/Hawkman (Aldis Hodge) alongside the Doctor.

Black Adam (2022) movie review

Watch JSA superhero characters appear

It’s interesting to see JSA superhero characters in this movie. Hawkman proves to be superior in his strength, on par with Doctor Fate, who is disproportionately powerful, but looks stunning in action. Cyclone and Atom Smasher also have smooth chemistry through some of the moments shown. The action scenes he presents are bold and very entertaining until the very end. Even so, this movie looks more like a battle between Hawkman and Black Adam than JSA and Black Adam, it is clear that the intensity of the conflict between the two of them and the screen time has dominated the entire film.

Review Black Adam

Studying the personality of Black Adam

Seeing Dwayne Johnson this time as an anti-hero forced him to adapt much differently from many of the films he has acted in. Black Adam is one of the villains carrying the power of 6 ancient Egyptian gods whose power is rumored to surpass Shazam! Even strong enough to be able to end the Justice League, Justice Society, and parts of the DC Universe.

So, the current Dwayne Johnson looks a bit different, by appearing more serious, sometimes lighthearted, far from the witty and sarcastic jokes he often tells in many of his films. Even so, the jokes that appear in Black Adam seem natural and can make us laugh in some scenes, both between Doctor Fate and Hawkman. Similar to “Shazam!” (2019) Their jokes also feel natural.

Black Adam movie conclusion

As a result, Black Adam was able to continue to maintain the continuity of the DCEU which has not shined so far with all the problems that have befallen him. This movie can keep us entertained with a series of exciting action sequences until the very end, the smooth and eye-catching CGI is also a compliment we should give to Black Adam whose post credits were leaked on the internet. network a few days ago.

Black Adam

As for the post credits scene itself, there’s only one, but what happens in that scene will surprise us as it brings up the main DC superhero character and fuels speculation that there will be a sequel to the movie. this movie in the future.
