@Marvel Black Panther: The Cat’s Meow.

Posted on Updated on

As is normally the case with #Marvel movies I go watch the weekend it opens. Black Panther was no different. I will keep this post spoiler free which means though that it won’t be too long a post.

The hype leading up to opening day was unbelievable. I mean social media was on 🔥. My biggest worry was that the movie would not live up to the hype. In a way, for me, that was the case. Visually, this movie is stunning. The sights, scenery, colors are breathtaking. You actually get caught up in it. The storyline however is somewhat predictable. You basically have supporters to your cause, then you don’t, then you get support from an unexpected source in order to triumph. Nothing I haven’t seen before. It doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the movie but there was a small letdown.

By no means am I trying to jump on a bandwagon for the sake of it but the female characters in this movie is pure gold. From the guards to T’challa’s sister Shuri who in my opinion stole the movie. Letitia Wright is fantastic. A pure natural at it. Every scene she was in she stole. My guess is her stock will rise!!!

Finally, for the love of Jesus and all that is good in the world. Stay put and leave only after the credits are done. Anyone that leaves prior should be banned from future Marvel movies. You are clearly not a true fan. Lol. As is the case with every Marvel movie, there are two post credit scenes (or at the very least one). The second one gives you a little insight as to what’s coming next.

There you have it. My spoiler free thoughts on Black Panther.

3.5/5
