Movie Review: Black Panther

Movie: Black Panther
Genre: Superhero fantasy
Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o
My Rating: Two thumbs up

Well, I'm not much of a comic person/fan, but usually I know a little about the superhero in question when I go to one of these movies. This one, however, I knew NOTHING. So the whole story was totally new to me. And I quite enjoyed it!

For those who are like me and haven't a clue, this is the story about a hidden city in Africa who has advanced in technology way ahead of the rest of the world. But they hide it and keep it all to themselves... to protect their people and society.

But then they are infiltrated by a dude who claims to be one of their sons and so has the right to be on the throne. (Whoever is king of this place also gets to have the power of the Black Panther.) And he has plans of revenge against the whole world and wants to use their power to destroy EVERYONE. He is one angry young man.

The movie was awesome in special effects and music and all the great things we expect from a superhero movie. The actors where awesome... I enjoyed the two "Tolkein"white guys. (That joke has gotten around right?) Martin Freeman is a favorite for sure. I knew I recognized the general, I think was her role, and only afterwards realized why... Mishonne from The Walking Dead! I also especially enjoyed the sister. She was fabulous!

The stars. They are all so freaking beautiful. 

Their accents were a little hard to understand. I needed subtitles, lol. I'm so used to them these days. I felt so at home when they went to Busan and bam, there were my subtitles! But hearing them speak Korean with their accents was...very interesting! LOL. I loved it. Did they really film in Busan? Because that was awesome if so.

Anyway, it was a fun movie. Very engaging and entertaining. Marvel you've done it again.

Here's the trailer:

  1. I saw this one this weekend. I thought it was good as a movie, but as a Marvel fan, yeesh! I liked Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman too. They were awesome! Andy Serkis should always play the bad guy. Yes, the really filmed in Busan. Didn't you see all the South Korean credits at the end?

  2. I thought this one was ok and I liked the sister but I wasn’t that impressed and don’t see what the big deal is. :/

    1. Cool effects? Maybe that's the big deal... or maybe a movie with nearly all black actors? Girl power? These are the things I've seen people talking about...

  4. Black Panther is one of my favorite comic character. Most of time I download ebook to read Black panther comics and on this year Its cool to watch Black Panther movie with my schoolmates. I really enjoyed the story and action scene filmed in the movie. I Love all the action scenes but one of my favorite is when he fights with her own brother.
