Never in the history of the world has there been so much clamour for one movie (correct me if I’m wrong). This Ryan Coogler’s directed movie addresses certain themes that mirror happenings in the real world today and, on a large scale, puts the Black Man at the positive center of it all, as against what’s commonly obtainable. This, I believe, is the major reason for the fanfare that has trailed this movie since its pre-production stage – a movie starring, in majority, black actors, directed by a black man, and telling a story that makes you (the viewer) imagine how the black race could have fared if she’d been left untampered with by colonialism and its baggage that followed.
For a long time I said I wasn’t going to review this movie, and I still won’t (at least not in details). This is because ‘Black Panther’ has achieved universal acclaimation and practically every good thing possible has already been said about it. I write this piece for that person (in the minority), who for one reason or the other hasn’t still yet ‘Black Panther’. Don’t deny yourself this wonderful viewing experience. Be a part of history. Why?
Black Panther is a great movie, one that’ll be remembered for many years to come for its cultural relevance and significance, box-office record-breaking prowess, amongst many other honors it’s attained. Currently dubbed The Number One Movie In The World, ‘Black Panther’ boasts an impressive cast, wonderful performances, beautiful aesthetics thanks to its great CGI, a non-generic villain in Killmonger, and loads of wonderful new characters you’re sure to fall in love with… Shuri, M’baku, Nakia, Okoye, et al.
Who should see ‘Black Panther’? Everyone, anyone, someone, you, me, your child, your parents… No one should be left out.
Spoil yourself with ‘Black Panther’ and join the world to proclaim #WakandaForever!
Directed by: Ryan Coogler
