Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Movie Review: The face of the late star Chadwick Boseman and his beloved character T’Challa appears early in the sequel on memorial murals. And his presence and ultimate legacy are profoundly felt throughout the film, as various characters and fans deal with grief and move on with their lives. Chadwick Boseman, our one true King T’Challa you are eternally missed. 

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a movie that dives deep in both the footsteps of the original Black Panther and Civil War by providing a geopolitical and social backdrop for the action and drama upfront while also setting two distinct forces against each other that, under different circumstances, should be working together instead of trying to destroy one another. It’s the best of all worlds, from an emotional tribute to a whole family heritage, the movie feels like a roller coaster of drama, actions, emotion, and fun. 

Director and co-writer Ryan Coogler, his writing partner Joe Robert Cole, and producers Kevin Feige and Nate Moore have created a film that delivers a classic ensemble film and takes its time for its plot strands to synthesize. The movie releases in theatres near you today with a runtime of 160 minutes.

The movie begins with a moving sequence that pays homage to the late King with an exposition-heavy narrative. The world powers are scheming to get their hands on the nation’s most precious resource. But as the global superpowers encroach upon their territory and resources, a new player enters the game, the underwater empire of Talocan led by their God-king Namor, who wages war against the surface world. And sadly, Wakanda finds itself in the middle of his path of destruction. 

Review

The movie is amazing in all aspects. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is how you define a great film. The homage is heartfelt and we feel the tears, but this doesn’t stop here, within the first 5 minutes and the viewers are met with Goosebumps when thudding sounds start to signal the last visuals of T’Challa leading to a dead silence. Ryan and the team’s language makes you feel Chadwick’s void is silenced. Every time he enters the frame there is zero music, a vacuum almost, which is felt to the core. It’s a fine work of fiction that hardly gives you the time to realize that you are in a theatre, not their kingdom.

The returning Wakandan cast receives the most important bits of character development, everyone steps up their game this time around. The acting department deserves a thumbs-up for their performances. Women solely run the entire show in this movie, Shuri is nothing less of excellent, and Angela drives the hearty emotional core of this movie. Wright is phenomenal at keeping the camp together and Ramonda seems to have understood the assignment perfectly, she exhibits glory with talent and so does Okoye. The new “Black Panther” celebrates and honors its fallen hero, and brings the promise and reminder that MCU is in extremely capable hands. This movie is something one shouldn’t miss this weekend under any circumstances.
