Black Panther review

Black Panther was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby of Marvel comics in July 1966, during the Civil rights period of high racial tension in the United States of America. He was the first black African Superhero created for mainstream comics, before a host of other characters of African American descent would follow him, this would prove to be a game changer in that industry. We fast forward over 50 years to February 2018 in a new century and we have The Black Panther shown premiered around the world.  Starring (Chadwick Boseman 42, Captain America: Civil War) as T’Challa the young king of fictional African nation Wakanda, which unknown to the rest of the world  is the most technologically advanced country in the world, thanks to vibranium the most powerful mineral on earth. He wears the mantle of the Black Panther the alter ego he uses to protect his nation, with the super armoured vibranium suit which amplifies the superhuman strength, speed, senses and agility he has, which is achieved through eating the heart shaped herb a ritual bestowed to the King of Wakanda.

The story begins with T’Challa returning home after the death of his father, and having to face the new political and unrest in Wakanda and a new nemesis that would prove to be more formidable than he could ever imagine in the shape of Erik Killmonger (Michael B Jordan, of Creed, Fruitvale Station) who is aided by the villainess fugitive Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis, Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and throw questions at Wakanda’s role in the world, igniting discussions that force individuals to think long and hard. They are both backed by a wonderfully talented cast including: W’kabi-Leader of the border tribe.(Academy Award Nominee-Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out, Kick Ass 2), Nakia Wankanda’s undercover agent (Academy Award Winner- Lupita Nyongo, 12 Years a Slave), Okoye the General of the Dora Milaje- The Wakandan royal guards Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead TV Series) and Introducing a newcomer the Scientific genius of Wakanda, T’Challa’s young sister Shuri played by(Letisha Wright, The Commuter, Black Mirror). To name but a few of the talented cast this is all helmed by the young rising director Ryan Coogler, Creed, Fruitvale Station) in only his 3rd feature film and most expensive film budget wise, estimated at 200 million. He captures all the great influences and imagery of the great continent of Africa on film including the music featuring great soundtracks from Kendrick Lamar and Run the Jewels., which is a predominately black cast with various African descent, which captures the diverse spirit of Cinema making it a game changer in the movie Industry just as Wonder Woman had done in 2017, and Just as Black Panther had  in the comics over 50 years ago. As I write this review the movie is about to cross a billion in sales at the box-office as the number #1 movie in the world.
