Review – Black Panther

Directed by: Ryan Coogler

Written by: Ryan Coogler & Joe Cole

Produced by: Stan Lee & Kevin Feige

Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B Jordan & Lupita Nyong’o

Release Date: February 2nd 2018 (UK)

I recently revisited Black Panther for review and it is still pretty great. Chadwick Boseman’s starring role as the titular hero is immense and I really enjoyed how he chose to give a subdued, collected performance in the film. This is something that I didn’t expect the first time that I watched Black Panther. Bearing in mind that the first time that we ever saw this character onscreen was in Civil War and while I understand he was on a revenge quest in that movie, he conveyed an sense of energy that isn’t present in Black Panther. I have since heard that this was a decision made by Chadwick Boseman and Ryan Coogler when they were settling on their vision of who Black Panther should be.

Review - Black Panther
Rest In Power.

There are a lot of stand out performances in the film though Michael B Jordan, (who is a Coogler movie staple at this point,) give us one of the best Marvel villains that we have seen thus far. At the very least, Killmonger had the most believable motivation for doing villainous things that we had seen up until that point in the MCU. The rest of the cast bring their A game too, including Danai Guira, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whittaker, Martin Freeman and Sterling K Brown who are all great here.

The costume design and sets are fantastic to look at, but some of the character CGI does look a bit too bouncy and unrealistic. I also feel that the movie drags a bit in the second act and the mid-section of the movie also features a lot of very expositional dialogue, meaning that this is the low point for the movie’s script

Review - Black Panther
The CGI in this scene is particularly bad.

Lastly, I really enjoy this movie’s soundtrack and feel that it greatly adds to the excitement of certain scenes throughout the movie. In summary, Black Panther is a pretty great entry into the MCU and although it isn’t one of Marvel’s best, it is far from their worst.
