Black Panther: Wakanda Forever; Honest Review

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever; Honest Review

The last Hollywood movie I watched was Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is worth watching. I’m sure most people who haven’t seen the film will be suspicious of reviews that include spoilers, but just like any other Marvel nerd, I’ll be the sort of Marvel nerd with no intention of giving away the picture. So, first and foremost, I am very impressed with how Marvel handled this sequel in a much more severe and approachable tone, even paying a very respectful tribute to Chadwick Boseman (who died two years ago after a four-year battle with colon cancer) right at the start of the Marvel Studios logo and even at the end credits.

The film is set one year after T’Challa’s death, as the Wakandans strive to battle for their homeland while fighting with underwater people commanded by their leader Namor, who appears to be right out of Aquaman. 

Performance in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

The performances are highly personal and touching, but Angela Bassett stands out. Moreover, the picture is emotionally serious, yet understands when to lighten the tone. The humour is effective. Michaela Coel and Winston Duke are both underutilized yet entertaining. Danai Gurira also enhances her comic skills.

Having a genuine opponent with whom you can sympathize is always an aspect of the finest Marvel films or any movie for that matter. They return to that component to increase the emotional impact. Tenoch Huerta does a terrific job obtaining our buy-in.

The inclusion of a character that is plainly there because they are getting their own show is the only minor quibble I have. At the very least, they have a function as part of the tale, and the actress Dominique Thorne is rather terrific. Returning to an MCU picture that feels incredibly personal and simple to participate in is refreshing.

Additionally, unlike previous films, the one mid-scene credit really signifies something and is not a cryptic throwaway or farcical comedy.

Emotions

The most emotional Marvel movie to date, and it handled it so brilliantly (Black Panther). I wept five times in this movie, which is more than I’ve cried in a long time. The themes of loss, vengeance, heritage, and family were astoundingly handled in this film. Letitia Wright was fantastic in this film, bringing so much intensity and energy to the character of Shuri.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever; Honest Review

As always, the Dora Milaje were fierce and superb fighters. Dominique Thorne did an excellent job of introducing us to Riri Williams, nicknamed Iron Heart, a new vibrant character. Angela Bassett, as the passionate, forceful, and touching Queen Ramonda, on the other hand, stole practically every scene she was in with an incandescent performance.

Main Strength of the movie

For me, this film’s greatest strength was how they handled Chadwick Boseman’s death, the enormous amount of respect they showed him, and his role as T’Challa in Black Panther. Moving on to the more technical aspects, the photography, costume design, and soundtrack was all fantastic. The CGI was highly done, with only a few minor flaws that I observed. Overall, this excellent film (Black Panther) has risen to the top of my list of the best in the MCU. I recommend seeing it in theatres if you get the opportunity.
