Although there’s nothing precisely wrong or boring about Black Panther, it felt as if something was missing. Maybe the film lacked the ‘wow factor’.
Wasting no time, we are introduced to Wakanda and how it was formed. It’s rich in an elusive metal called Vibranium and is technologically way more advanced than the rest of the world. In fact, its Wakanda’s best-kept secret.
After his father’s death, T’Challa /Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) is appointed as the king of Wakanda. Panther fails to capture the villainous Klaw (Andy Serkis), who is eventually captured by Erik (Michael B. Jordan) for his own vested interests. You’ll have to watch the film to know what all happens.
The best part about the film is that it’s a slap on racism and shows us that all lives matter. And the film boasts of some really strong women characters that add value to the film. Although there are not many funny scenes, the ones that are there will make you laugh out loud. Erik’s character is also well defined and you don’t really hate him as you know where he’s coming from. On the other hand, there could’ve been more shades to T’Challa /Black Panther’s character. But the main thing that goes against the film is that it doesn’t have enough extraordinary scenes and moments.
Chadwick Boseman is good especially in the emotional scenes. Michael B. Jordan acts wonderfully. Andy Serkis is decent in his small role. Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia and Danai Gurira as Okoye play their parts really well. Letitia Wright as Shuri is excellent.
Black Panther might not be excellent but is surely worth your time & money. We give it 3 stars with a kink.
PS: There are two end credit scenes in the film and you don’t want to miss any.
