This latest of the Marvel movies follows on from the events of Captain America: Civil War, and follows the story of T’Challa, son of the late Black Panther, both King and cultural leader of the technologically advanced nation of Wakanda.
T’Challa returns home after what to him feels a lifetime abroad, to assume the mantle of King and of Black Panther, the little nations hero and protector. However, he crowning will not be as expected when factions both within and outside of the nation seek to challenge his rule from the day of the crowning ceremony and on.
“Just because something works, does not mean it can’t be improved.” How so very true this phrase is, in relation to so many aspects of our own lives and jobs.
There are a lot of good and bad reviews about this movie, and I’m going to put this one pretty much on the fence. The story isn’t an original one as it has been told before in a variety of ways with a variety or characters, but it is a well told story, it has some holes in it (as many stories frequently do) but the residual is decent and solid. The acting, well, to be honest in some areas it is very clearly rehearsed and obvious that some more takes could have been done with it. The special effects, again there were moments where i feel it was just not tidied up enough, other times (such as with the rhino’s) it was very well done.
Overall, I think enjoyed, but may have to watch it again to solidify my thoughts on it.
