It’s been a while but I am back! I went through a phase of being uninspired and suffering from writers block but I am ready to start doing posts again. Hurrah! I recently saw Black Panther and figured I’d give you lovely lot my take on it.
slight spoiler alert
Black Panther is easily one of Marvel’s most anticipated films to ever be released. The reason being is it’s the first film to have an exclusively mostly black cast.
The film starts out with main character T’Challa (a.k.a Black Panther/actor Chadwick Boseman), losing his father (the King of Wakanda) returning home to take his father’s place as King.
The journey takes a few unexpected and interesting turns as the film progresses and shows how far some of the characters are willing to go to protect their land, Wakanda.
Then comes along the villian of the film, Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), to take all of the pride and glory from T’Challa and avenge his own fathers death.
It is a good film with an exceptional cast. T’Challa’s sister, Shuri (Latitia Wright) was sassy and intelligent which made her take top spot as my favourite character in the film.
Praise must be given to the actors as their performances were amazing throughout. The cultural aspects of the film were incredibly interesting and gave it an edge that other movies have lacked.
The slight downfall of the movie was the CGI… oh, boy. All I’ll say is watch out for the Rhino’s, it shouldn’t be hard to see what I mean.
Kudos to Marvel for moving with the times, and moving in the right direction towards equality in the industry. Albeit, there’s still a lot more to be done but it is a good and welcomed start.
Overall, the film can be given a solid four-star rating and I would recommend that everyone goes to see it.
Until next time,
