‘Black Panther’ Bullet Point Review

Using bullet points, I’m going to give you my thoughts on the cultural phenomenon and box office record shatterer that is ‘Black Panther’!

 

  • Why did they have Sterling K. Brown portraying a sort-of “street dude”? He’s a talented actor and all but boy did he look ridiculous
    • Quote of the movie: “Hide the straps!” hahahaha
  • Even with no actual hand-to-hand combat, the Berlin car chase scene was still a sweet action moment
  • Don’t like that Klaue (Andy Serkis) died in this one even though his death made way for Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) to be the great villain he came to be
    • Thought Klaue’s role would have been bigger in this universe
  • The black on black crime battle at the end wasn’t epic but it didn’t need to be because the story asked for something more closed in and personal
    • Was still enjoyable to watch
  • The action in the movie wasn’t the greatest the MCU has had to offer but it was still exciting throughout
    • Wanted to see T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) fight as Black Panther more
      • Seems like we barely got it here. Hopefully the sequel is different
  • The cast was superb
    • Especially Shuri (Letitia Wright) and Killmonger
      • Killmonger had the best and most understandable villainous motives in the MCU. That and Jordan’s performance is the reason why I believe him to be the best villain in the ever-expanding universe
  • The score fit the cultural vibe perfectly and meshed pieces of the soundtrack into it well
  • The mid credit scene used its time to be a PSA that resonates perfectly with what’s going on in real life. Marvel really using their voice to speak on the injustices in the world
    • Was surprised and wanted a tease for what to expect in a future MCU movie like the usual (I guess we did kind of get that with the post credit scene) but at the same time I’m not mad at it. Smart of them to do it
  • Ryan Coogler is really showing his ever improving prowess as a filmmaker
    • He did great with directing his first big budget blockbuster and killed it when it comes to the script
      • His angling of shots have definitely improved since ‘Creed’
  • To Sum it Up: YET AGAIN, another great addition to the MCU. Its cultural presence and Jordan’s amazing performance will make it a standout even if it’s not like a top three movie in the universe
