Black Panther: More Than Just Your Marvel Movie

Black Panther: More Than Just Your Marvel Movie

We just finished watching Black Panther today at SM City Masinag. My partner loves any Marvel movie. He understands the Marvel's story better than me. He also has the memory of remembering each Marvel movie we had watch, connecting each one of them. So I'll give in whenever he would like to watch Marvel movies.

"Black Panther" follows T'Challa who, after the events of "Captain America: Civil War," returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.

I will not go into technicalities because well, I am not good at it. But here are my thoughts on why Black Panther is more than just your Marvel movie. Don't worry, no spoilers here.

  • Black Panther is another installment of Marvel that does not disappoint. If you had watched the previous marvel's movies, they are all connected and they make it to a point to highlight every superhero that was being introduced. Black Panther works solely depicting the issues surrounded by the nation of Wakanda. It works alone without any appearances from Marvel superheroes.            
  • Impressive acting from black actresses/actors. It was a great opportunity to feature an all-star black American-African cast. It was such a refresher. I can't help but noticed their golden browned skins. Black is definitely beautiful.
  • Speaking of the casts, the women stole the spotlight. Lupita Nyong'o is undeniably talented. Danai Gurira whom I known for being fierce at The Walking Dead, is as fierce here being the general of Wakanda. Her fight scenes were powerful and strong. And let's not forget the younger witty sister, Letitia Wright. She played as the geeky sister of Black Panther who handled his brother's high-tech weapons and costumes.
  • The main character played by Chadwick Boseman portrays his role perfectly. A king that has the calm but warrior attitude.
  • Beautiful costumes and special effects. And you'll not miss every music background as it beats and rhythms into every special part of the movie.
  • Fighting scenes are on point. 
  • It claws into important and timely racial politics that we have today.
  • What I liked most is that the story can fully understand by not so geeky me. It achieved the scenes with perfect timings. The storyline is on clarity and definitely worth your time.

More than just your Marvel Movie, Black Panther is definitely one of the movies that is highly entertaining. Wakanda Forever!

Next on the list is Avengers Infinity War!
