Watch or Nah?: Black Panther

Hello World,

I already alluded to how I felt about this film in my post yesterday, but I have so many great things to say about this film! This movie is so well-done, and I didn't expect any less, because the stakes were so high on this film. There has never a been a superhero film like this before, so the cast and crew knew they could not fail. So what we got was greatness! As promised here is my full review of Black Panther!

Film/ Television Show Information

Name: Black Panther

Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-fi

Director : Ryan Coolger

3 = OK

4 = Solid

5 = Bomb

Acting/ Performance


This film stars world-class actors, and they all gave world-class performances. Every character was portrayed so well - they all drew you in. It was like each actor was fighting to try to steal the scene, but because they could hold their own, what we got were just all around great performances. Whether you loved the heroes or hated the villains, all the actors made you feel something towards their characters. 



Coogler and Joe Robert Cole, really outdid themselves with this screenplay, and that's why it gets double points! What they created was so much more than a superhero movie! They managed to create a story that dealt with real, poignant and deep themes, while still being fun and entertaining, and a film that made you think and feel, but was still enjoyable. So many writers try so hard to create a film that has meaning, but forget that movies are meant to be entertainment. But Coogler and Cole struck that perfect balance in more ways then one. The story is also rooted in African tradition and culture, but also futuristic. The story celebrates Blackness, but also praises unity and inclusion! They could have just written another Marvel superhero movie, but they created an incredible story of growth and triumph, and the main character just so happened to be an awesome superhero.



Stunning, just stunning. This film is a visual masterpiece. The look of everything goes so well together - from the set, to the costumes, to the visual effects. It's all just a work of art on the screen.

Costume Design

Editing/Special Effects


The scene in the movie, when we first see Wakanda, T'Challa says "This never gets old," and I would imagine so, because it looked incredible. They created a world that looked real, like it exists, but unreal, like not of this world. And the fight scenes looked incredible, but also a little impossible, which only made them more amazing. So again, balance. 



The music is dope, and adds movement and depth to the scenes. Both song selections and placements were excellent. 

Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 5.3/5.0

Recommendation: Watch! 😀

I recommend this film to anyone who likes fun, entertaining movies. If you're not into fun, action, adventure films - you're more into indie dramas, then maybe this isn't for you. Though, you will still get that same feeling you get from watching though-provoking indies, this movie may be too much fun for you. Now if you do like big blockbusters, then this movie is for you! This movie really is for everyone! Now, do I think you'd enjoy this film more if you're Black? Yes, but not being Black should not prevent you from enjoying this film because it excels on so many levels, besides praising Blackness. But if you are Black, then you NEED to see this film! This film is so well balanced, well-acted, well-written, well-designed,and well-everything, that everyone needs to see it!

Yo, this movie stay mad sold-out, but try to buy your tickets here

Au Revoir,

P.S. Wakanda Forever!
