Black Panther

{4.5/5} “Like an antelope in headlights.”

Black Panther, released in 2018

T’Challa, King of Wakanda, is also the Black Panther. Their country keeps their vibranium-based technology a secret from the rest of the world. T’Challa is upset to discover that his father killed his uncle — and left his cousin behind. Then his cousin shows up and challenges him for the throne.

As in most superhero movies, there’s a lot of fighting. There’s lots of interesting stuff in the non-fighting scenes, though. The look of the film is stunning.

I liked T’Challa’s interactions with his friends Nakia and Okoye and with his sister Shuri. I enjoyed it a lot, and look forward to Black Panther’s contributions to the Avengers.

Stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, and Letitia Wright. Directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station). The African flavoured music is by Ludwig Göransson.
