Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Spoiler Free...ish)
The next Marvel movie has arrived and the hype for this movie has
been massive. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the much awaited sequel to the
2018 film Black Panther. Since the original film, Black Panther star Chadwick
Boseman sadly passed away after heroically battling cancer. Black Panther:
Wakanda Forever starts off with the characters mourning the loss of King T’Challa
(Boseman). As the story progresses, Wakanda must adjust to not having their
Black Panther while a new enemy threatens them.
What follows is The Good, The Bad, and The Spoilers
(NO SPOILERS THIS TIME) of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
As stated above, I’m going to do my best to avoid any spoilers in
this one, so I’ll just hit a couple key points.
One major question many people had was how is Black Panther:
Wakanda Forever going to address the death of Chadwick Boseman. This film
does a beautiful job paying tribute to Boseman while not taking away from the
overall plot of the movie. If you tend to be more emotional, be prepared to
shed a tear.
The character Namor (Tenoch Huerta) was one of the highlights of
the film. Tenoch Huerta was phenomenal in the role and his backstory is
explained well and in a way that makes audiences sympathize with him.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is another
long movie at just under 2 hours and 45 minutes. While I felt the pacing of the
movie was done right, there are parts of the movie that could have been taken
out to make this movie just a bit shorter.
With all marvel movies, audiences have begun to look forward to
the big reveals at the mid- and post-credit scenes. In Black Panther:
Wakanda Forever audiences are only given a mid-credit scene to give
character’s some closure and there is no post-credit scene. It was like
finishing a great meal excited for dessert, only to find out there is none.
My Overall Opinion
the original Black Panther did not meet the expectations I had. Black
Panther: Wakanda Forever lives up to all the hype in my opinion. It kept me
entertained the entire 2 hours and 45 minutes, and I look forward to seeing it
again in theaters. I highly recommend seeing this one on the big screen!
