Black Panther Review

Fellow movie-goers: Absolutely one of the best superhero movies Marvel has given us.
10 Plot: Fantastic origin story, top notch writing.
10 Acting: Boseman and Jordan bring the house down.
8 Directing: Coogler does a great job bringing the newest hero to life.
9 Cinematagraphy: Awesome shots, especially the fight scenes.
10 Pacing: Never dull, keeps your attention to the end.

Here’s the premise: After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country’s new leader. However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan Special Forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.

From the explosive beginning, right to the awesome ending, BLACK PANTHER will hold your attention and at times, keep you on the edge of your seat. While we got to see BLACK PANTHER in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, it left us wanting more…and now we have it. Where CIVIL WAR showed a little what our hero can do, the BLACK PANTHER film magnifies this and shows exactly why he is a crucial part of the MCU.

Chadwick Boseman does a phenomenal job as T’Challa, aka BLACK PANTHER, he brings a confidence to the role that says “Don’t mess with me!!!” in bold print. He not only takes on outsiders, but has to battle for his position in his own community, these fight scenes are some of the best I have seen, very well done. Ringing in as the villain is Michael B. Jordan, who is awesome, as usual. Michael is one of my favorite young actors coming out of Hollywood today, and while I hated to see him as a villain, he actually brings something a little extra to his character that makes us understand why he is the way he is.

This is a great movie and should be seen on the big screen, I highly recommend it!!!
