WHAT I LIKE?
Black Panther is perhaps the most solid superhero movie in the Marvel Universe in terms of source material and story-telling. The foundation of this movie is its Modern African-inspired fictional country named Wakanda and a very compelling storyline of King T’Challa and some of Marvel’s dynamic supporting characters. What I liked about Black Panther is its superb Production design especially the Wakanda scenes. By far, this is their best in terms of a fictional superhero country portrayal. I fell in loved with how modern technology and African culture mixed well in this country. Costume-wise, Black Panther never failed even an inch. The costume choices were very creative and very much apt to the whole concept of an advanced world. Aside from visually-engaging setting, the movie also boast of impressive and well-executed action sequences. Every action scenes were great. It was great to see less CGI effects during fight scenes. What I also loved is the involvement of women in the movie. The movie actually showed women empowerment. With great narratives and sequencing of events, Black Panther seems to be flawless and engaging scenes that will keep you on your seats for the whole of its running time. If it is Marvel, there must be humor. Although Black Panther has less humor compared to other MCU movies but the comedy parts were in perfect timing on most scenes. Acting chops from talented actors and actresses were amazing and impressive to say the least. Glad to see a celebration of African-American culture without being too racist. Chadwick is such a good lead actor. Michael Jordan was a great Villain too. Lupita and Chadwick’s chemistry is quite strong. Danai and Daniel were also a good support to the talented cast. With the balanced amount of romance, drama and action, Black Panther is truly my most favorite MCU movie so far. WAKANDA FOREVER!
WHAT I DON’T LIKE?
The fact that I won’t be able to see WAKANDA in real life is the only negative review I will be giving.
