Although it’s a marked step down from its game changing predecessor, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is still a cut above the recent slate of superhero blockbusters, thanks to some tremendous performances and strong direction.
Black Panther is a triumph. The film is powerful, thrilling, well-written, and filled with amazing talent, on screen and behind the scenes. What makes the film all the more powerful is the strength of the characters, and the fact that the leading women steal the show.
Destined to become an all time classic of the superhero genre and handily the best entry into the behemoth Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther is a patient, intelligent, emotional, and politically loaded film that uses previously established tropes and clichés to brilliant, revolutionary effect.
