Black Panther is visually stunning, drawing artistic inspiration from every part of the African continent. But perhaps what is most impressive about the film is the villain and the political dilemma catalysed by his claim to the throne.
It does nothing truly distinct from every other Marvel Studios offering, I will be first in line. If they think they can sucker me into paying for outdated special effects and a movie I have seen many times over, they have another thing coming.
Ryan Coogler has permanently stitched himself into the Hollywood fabric as one of the most innovative directors stretching across multiple genres. What Coogler does with Black Panther is inspiring, admirable and transformative.
The film's futuristic depiction of black/African culture is nothing short of amazing. Especially since we've never seen anything like it on the big screen. Despite some CGI flaws, the direction, acting, story, and design is phenomenal.
The characters are strong and it asks questions that will have you thinking long after you left the theater. It's not just a good superhero movie but a good thoughtful movie full of diverse and interesting perspectives.
An international box-office blockbuster that ignited like a blast of cultural vibranium in the ugly face of resurgent global racism... At this point, 'Wakanda forever!' feels like not just a boast but a prophecy.
