Black Panther Movie Review
Black Panther is a film that makes you think as much as it entertains, Black Panther, one of the latest from the Marvel universe. Fortunately you can now find Black Panther streaming online now. It an awe-inspiring trip to the fictional country of Wakanda on the African subcontinent. Wakanda is a nation blessed with a powerful natural resource, unimaginable technological advancement and wealth; yet its people believe in keeping it hidden so as to not be the cause of war. This is upheld by the ruler, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), the nation’s Black Panther, a title he earned through ritual combat during his coronation. But the story takes a turn when he learns of the robbery of a vibranium artefact from a British museum. It is known to have been commissioned by a disreputable arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) and the Black Panther must stop this. What follows is thrilling sequence of fight scenes, the involvement of Everett Ross (Martin Freeman), a CIA operative and the leading onto a mystery character, an ex-SEAL who has a personal history & revenge to settle with Wakandans and the Black Panther. It is a fight between good & evil, where the evil thinks they are doing good.
Black Panther has gained critical acclaim for showcasing a story which tells of the rich African heritage, royalty and is built on a mostly black star cast. Ryan Coogler has taken a free-reign in delivering a mesmerising blockbuster, packed with strong characters. The women like Okoye (Danai Gurira) -T’Challa’s military right hand; Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o)- his ex-girlfriend and an effective Wakandan spy and his sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) together, steal the spotlight in multiple scenes. A must watch movie especially if you intend to follow it up with the magnum opus Avengers- Infinity War.

However it did win many other movie awards / Best Original Music Score, Best Costume Design, and Best Production Design. And nominees for Best Picture, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Sound Editing.
