Welcome to Wakanda


Black Panther pounces on audience

Black Panther  steps into the theater making 228 million dollars internationally while making 520 million dollars worldwide in the opening weekend proving that it is a very good movie. Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, T’Challa, the Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) heads home to become the new King of Wakanda,a fictional country in Africa, that is concealed by a shield that blocks the outside world from seeing it. While he faces two antagonists, one being Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) a professional thief who strives to obtain vibranium, the strongest metal in the world, in order to make a mass profit, and the other, Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) a tyrant-like figure who comes to Wakanda to take the throne after his father’s death. Black Panther and his team have to go and take back the throne from Killmonger before he sends all their highly advanced weapons to the army, so they can use it to kill and conquer countries.

Marvel’s most recent film is marvelous. Every part of the movie catches your attention and leaves you wanting more. The CGI was good in certain parts. One of the bad fight scenes in the movie looked like a scene from a video game and movie can do better than that.The actors once again have amazed us.  Marvel again has found an actor who can portray a role perfectly, and that is Chadwick Boseman. Boseman has the strength to portray a superhero role amazingly along with playing a good African male. Jordan also did a very good job as Erik Killmonger being the antagonist. The actions he did really surprised us and showed you how a villain should be.

Men may have done a very good job in the movie, but we can’t forget the strong women roles we had either. Shuri, (Letitia Wright) T’Challa’s sister played a brilliant girl that was very good using vibranium to create strong weapons and tech that makes the city of Wakanda look like a high tech San Francisco. Okoye (Danai Gurira) is the greatest warrior and the king’s guard. She never stops fighting even when it may seem like there is no hope. Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) is the T’challa’s ex who is a covert agent. These three girls are good feminists models of strong liberated women by showing that just because they are girls doesn’t mean they’re any different than boys. Without them Boseman would have some trouble fighting for his home, Wakanda.

One of my favorite parts of the movie was the soundtrack, which Kendrick Lamar did a extraordinary job at creating. The sound and flow of the music gives the movie a little extra touch that really makes it rank higher. It makes the movie even more intense with his music in the background during the fight scenes and the end credits while you wait for end credit scenes. I give Black Panther a 9/10. It is a amazing movie despite a little bad CGI. I would recommend it to anyone.
