Meet the new king.....
After tragedy forces young Prince T'Challa to assume Wakanda's throne, he is faced with the ultimate test, putting the fate of his country and the entire world at risk. Pitted against his own family, the new king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and embrace his future as an Avenger.
I had been told by a couple of people that this was the best Marvel Movie ever (this was said before Deadpool 2 and Avengers Infinity War had come out) and that I had to see it. By just seeing the previews it really did not appeal to me and so I was quite happy to pass on it completely (my husband was a different story). But after just watching Avengers Infinity War I was completely up to play with everything, until the Black Panther aspect came up and then I felt like I was missing out - so when the opportunity came about I knew I had to fit the jigsaw all together and watch this.
One thing I did like about this movie was we did not get the full back story about why he was a panther and how it all happened, but instead it just began assuming that the audience already knew everything. It was actually a welcome relief as I usually find with most movies (Iron Man excluded) it is boring finding out how the powers happened to come about and then the saga of how to use them carries on for the rest of the movie. I liked how you got little glimpses of the past and various aspects were discussed a couple of times but it was not completely obvious and in your face. The movie had a very natural flow and the story was easy to follow (although my husband did have to remind me that the Black Panther story was first introduced in Civil War).
Unlike most Marvel Movies I found this had no humor in it and it was more serious. It also was more political and race orientated than I was expecting. The only smile I had was when Stan Lee made his brief appearance (I just love his cameos). This movie was also more vibrant and breathtaking then most of the other movies and had so much beauty from the sky/sunsets to the waterfalls it just felt so magical and so inviting. I felt like this movie pulled out all of the punches. The special effects were amazing as always and it just left you feeling in awe. The casting was great as was the acting actually not a lot can be faulted.
My husband really enjoyed it and said it was very close to the comic book. Where as I did enjoy it and it did hold my attention I just did not find that I fell in love with any of the characters or the story. We watched this two nights ago and I am finding it difficult to remember the movie in its entirety as I write this. Maybe its because I was expecting him to be more panther like and maybe run on four legs or something more cat like. Even with his costume I did not really associate it to be a Panther and I was left wandering where the connection was. There is a scene in the movie where he takes the potion and next minute he is walking to a tree which is covered in panthers sunning themselves and then they change to be past ancestors but beyond that I did not really get the point.
I loved the city and the history of the movie and I am keen to see where the technology will take us. I would of liked it if they explored more of this area and just walk around more. But I am glad that it has been kept a secret and I am hoping in future movies they focus on his sister more. But like I said I did enjoy it but it just was no Deadpool or Thor.
