Poster for the movie "Black Panther"

Black Panther

This is another good move from the Marvel stable. It may be ‘groundbreaking’ in its casting, but the story felt somewhat formulaic and many characters remained two-dimensional. The story kept good pace (though felt a little long for me). Some backstory was left to voiceover over the opening titles, and didn’t really have a huge impact when it came to leveraging this during the story. But, this is Marvel and not something like the Planet of the Apes trilogy.

Black Panther

Long live the king

Overview

King T'Challa returns home from America to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne by factions within his own country as well as without. Using powers reserved to Wakandan kings, T'Challa assumes the Black Panther mantel to join with girlfriend Nakia, the queen-mother, his princess-kid sister, members of the Dora Milaje (the Wakandan 'special forces') and an American secret agent, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.
