How Good is Black Panther? – My Honest Review
I can’t wait to see Black Panther again in theaters. I already know there was something I missed while watching the world premiere. As soon as the last credits rolled I cheered and declared I can’t wait to see this movie again. Ryan Coogler did an amazing job with this film. I have heard so many declare it the best movie in the MCU so far. I believe of all the origin stories, Black Panther is hands down the best.
One of the main questions I’ve been asked since the premiere is in regards to being able to have children watch the film. My honest opinion is it really depends on the child. Since you know your kids better than anyone you’re the best judge to decide. There are a few graphic scenes that involve some blood, but not that gorry. There were some intense scenes that had me jumping and sitting at the edge of my seat. There were very few romantic scenes, I believe there was just one towards the end and it was just a few kisses.
Step Aside Chadwick…
I’m a huge Chadwick Boseman fan. He was a huge part of the reason I was so excited for the film. After the premiere, I have to say that Letitia Wright stole the movie in her role as Shuri. I’ve been singing her praises since seeing the movie. I loved Shuri’s energy and spirit in the film. She had some of the best one-liners in the movie. What I loved is that she knows she’s the smartest person in the world, and she has the attitude to match it. Her whole swag is magnetic and I can’t wait for my daughter to see this role play out on the big screen. She’s definitely an inspiration for girls.
M’Baku Loves Wakanda
I wrote my post about being excited about Winston Duke’s character M’Baku before seeing the film. I was excited to see all of the points I touched on were dead on. I just loved seeing M’Baku on the screen. He had some very funny lines in the film as well. I truly love that this film is bringing us not one but two powerful black men. M’Baku is a leader in his own right, with his own people and interest to look out for in the film. I can’t wait to see him again in Black Panther and Infinity War as well.
Girl Power to the 10th Power
The women in this film are very powerful. There isn’t a single woman who’s timid or shy. The Dora Milaje, an all-female Wakandan Special Forces team, were kicking butt and taking names. Okoye played by Danai Gurira has some of the best fighting scenes in the whole movie. Even in a dress, she leaves you mesmerized and ready to hit the gym all at the same time. I applaud Ryan’s efforts to making sure all these women were strong in their own way.
Wakanda is Amazing
If I could move to Wakanda I would absolutely hop on a place and move there. I couldn’t wait to see how they would bring this world to life and it was breathtaking. There was so much color, life, and beauty in the scene of Wakanda. It truly is a beautiful nation.
Michael B. Jordan’s Performance Was Outstanding
I was worried when I saw that Michael B. Jordan was going to be a villain in the film. I didn’t have any reason to be worried though, he did an amazing job. His personality in the movie made you love and hate him at the same time. I know a few bloggers on the #BlackPantherEvent was rooting for him in the film. He’s another one to look for in this film.
Yes There’s End Scene Credits
It’s a Marvel movie did you really have to ask? Be sure to stay after the film for two end scene credits. I won’t spoil it by saying what’s in any of the credits. But I will say they both set up Black Panther for Infinity War.
Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of BlackPanther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER opens in theaters everywhere on February 16th!
