Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Marvel Studios present a PG-13, 161-minute, Action, Adventure, Drama, directed by Ryan Coogler, screenplay by Coogler and Joe Robert Cole with a theater release of November 11, 2022.

The story begins with a funeral for King T’Challa, which is actually an amazing tribute to an amazing actor, Chadwick Boseman. The kingdom of Wakanda is run by Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) with her warriors by her side Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Okoye (Danai Gurira) along with M’Baku (Winston Duke) a leader from the mountains, and of course the Queen has the support of the entire country. Her daughter Shuri (Letitia Wright) is still involved in the lab always working on new ideas but in this case also looking for a way to extract from her brothers DNA the secret to being a Black Panther.

There is some tension between Wakanda and the United Nations regarding the use of their vibranium but there also seems to be another civilization not known of until now. Led by their leader Namor (Tenoch Huerta) this Mexican civilization living in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean are preparing to go to war with Wakanda over the decision to kill a young American scientist. Wakanda was told not to divulge any private information to the U.S. but Everette K. Ross (Martin Freeman) just happened to be a keeper of a bracelet that helped him communicate with Wakanda. The war is brutal and many die but in the end which I do not want to reference at all there are several surprises but once again the memories of King T’Challa and the Rihanna song that plays underneath the moment is heart-breaking and will have you also thinking of family or friends that you have lost in time.

The direction is phenomenal, great photography, wardrobes and the soundtrack is a must add to your library of favorite tunes. The story is superbly written with a few exceptions, the length of the story and the way the war ends but other than that it is still genius and is guaranteed to make a huge box-office draw.

Every actor in this film is perfection. Bassett is as beautiful as ever and still knows how to use that strong voice. Huerta is a great villain that takes all the blows and battles that come his way. Wright although a bit frail in stature she truly kicks ass. I truly cannot say anything bad about any of the actors and supporting characters, they made almost 3 hours fly by. Definitely a movie you can watch more than once and I truly can’t say enough about how tastefully done the tributes to Boseman are in this film. You will see a lot of undersea life like whales and orca’s during the scenes surrounding the ancient nation of Talokan in the depths of the deep blue sea.
