Marvel Studios BLACK PANTHER Movie Review! No Spoilers
I was invited by Disney/Marvel for the Marvel Studios Black Panther Event and to attend the Black Panther Red “Purple” Carpet and a World Premiere to share this Black Panther Movie review.
I imagine you’ve seen trailers for Marvel Studios Black Panther. I’m sure you’ve already purchased your tickets for a showing on opening day Feb. 16, 2018 or your about to do so after reading this Black Panther Movie review. Black Panther stars big names like Chadwick Boseman (“T’Challa / Black Panther”), Lupita Nyong’o (“Nakia”), Forest Whitaker (“Zuri”), Angela Bassett (“Ramonda”), Martin Freeman (“Everett K. Ross”) and Micheal B. Jordan (“Eric Killmonger”) …. just to name a few. To say that I feel this Marvel movie is going to top the charts in sales is an understatement. It’s so incredibly well done and way more than just a “Black” super hero Marvel movie. It’s Revolutionary.
One of the great things that I love about Marvel’s Black Panther is while many say Black Panther is the Super Hero of this film I say it’s the women in this film that make it so incredible. A movie with strong women who support the men around them and they do it with pose’, grace and a undeniable strength that will make you want to take your daughters to see this film so they see strong women role models and strive to achieve these high goals of these courageous and inspiring women.
Even as I write this it brings tears of admiration to my eyes. Remembering how Lupita Nyong’o (“Nakia”), Danai Gurira (“Okoye”), Letitia Wright (“Shuri”) and Angela Bassett (“Ramonda”) had roles that really impacted my thoughts on supporting women in this movie. Without these women and their strength much of this movie would lose concept.
Some of the real hero’s in this movie are the women who knew how to kick some butt and protect the King and the Waconda people when their belief’s and morals may have told them to do otherwise.
I fell in love with landscape of Waconda and the spiritual customs of the Waconda people. I fell in love with their relationships with one another, the support for eachother, the closeness. The relationship between Chadwick Boseman (“T’Challa / Black Panther”) and his sister Letita Wright (Shuri) is a relationship I could relate to. Although she was younger than him she was obviously his protector and she shared her knowledge of technology which helps her people and especially her brother the King with this incredible Black Panther suit that can do some super cool things using uranium.
The question on everyone’s mind is “What kind of King is Chadwick Boseman (“T’Challa / Black Panther”) going to be?”
A Family of love and respect for one another is something we all long for. However there is a family secret that could tear the family apart and could mean big changes for the King and African nation Waconda people. His actions will ride on the future of his people and his kingdom.
I cried during this film, I laughed. I held my breathe in anticipation for what was to come next. I believe I went through every emotion that you could possibly feel. This movie really moved me in so many ways and in ways I simply can’t share because I don’t want to spoil it for you.
It’s really interesting that some of the topics and lines said in this film actually touch on reality and issues that we face today. I think you’ll appreciate that. There was something that made me gasp and actually shocked me some what, but I do understand why this particular line was put in the movie.
I did my best not to reveal any in depth spoilers about Black Panther Movie in this Black Panther Movie review. I’m looking forward to taking my family to see this film. They are super excited and can’t wait. I think my 9 year old son is going to love this film for the action and fast cars as well as the quick change Black Panther. My daughter is going to love this film because she’ll see strong women who can do it all. If your wondering if a child younger than 9 can attend this film I’d have to say that I’m not exactly sure a child younger than 9 would be appropriate. There are some fight scene’s and scene’s with death that may not be appropriate for young eyes.
Black Panther is RATED PG-13. I think that’s fair. Use your best judgement and if you decide there’s nothing a quick slide of the hand over the eyes or a quick hug hiding their face can’t hide.
I think the World is going to love this movie and want to go back and see it again and again. If only to catch some of the things they missed in translation with the thick African accents. There were times I missed what is said but seemed like the rest of the audience caught it by their reaction. That just leaves room for me to watch it again with more friends.
Things to watch for when watching Black Panther:
- In every Marvel Movie you’ll see the co-creator Stan Lee. Yes he’s in this movie, too.
- Flash back to very important scene’s that help tie Black Panther into Marvel you may have missed from Marvel’s Civil War.
- The Costume designs are really beautiful and inspired from real African villages
- Do not leave before “all” credits have rolled or you’ll miss the most important reappearance of a character you thought was gone forever.
ALL HAIL the King of WACONDA. Respect the Throne and the Waconda People. I guarantee you will leave the theater with a sense of “WOW ” and Respect. I can’t wait to see it again and again.
Keep an eye out for Cast interviews and more from the #BlackPantherEvent !
