Before we get into this review I just want to point out a few things here. I’ve seen people (mostly tech people) complaining that the tech in this movie isn’t “real” enough, so let me just say; it’s called Scifi for a damn reason.
I’ve been really excited to see this and went to Valentine’s Day to see it and it was fantastic. Actors did a great job, graphic effect are flawless. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about ‘Black Panther’. So with that..
After the attack at UN in Vienna, T’Challa is now on his way home to Wakanda for get crowned. As he is about to start his first few days as king it’s already proven to be difficult. As T’Challa finds out a man who attacked their nation and killed many is crawling out of his hole and making himself known. He embarks to find him but.. he isn’t the real enemy he need to worry about. There’s a man with a hidden agenda, his name is Erik.
As an agent of CIA is about to find about that Wakanda isn’t as poor as the world seem to think, Erik demands trial by combat for the throne. This confuses a few of the elders but it got proven he is the child of T’Challa’s uncle. So this complicates things. Erik isn’t just out for the throne he is also out for blood, world-wide damage if you will. Because what he is about to do next might just be one of the dumbest he can do instead of helping, he want’s to destroy. Some of the tribes in Wakanda get’s forced to help Erik but others do it volunteered
As we see some brilliant acting skills from Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan, Danai Gurira and many more. (A few faces you will recognize in the movie) They will also get you to feel what they feel. Emotional roller coaster throughout the movie. We get to see some nerve chilling action scenes mixed some GREAT humor, they will deliver some real sassyness from the female characters. I would recommend to see ‘Black Panther’ 10/10 times.
They managed to get me laughing, feeling sad with them, anxious, nervous and relief. I can’t wait to see more of the characters from ‘Black Panther’ in ‘Avangers: Infinity War’
