IMDB Trailer



Finally, I was able to watch Wakanda Forever. I've been waiting for to see how this movie was going to playout for a while now.

With the passing of Chadwick Boseman, there was the question of who would or could play the new Black Panther, or even if they should pass on the mantel at all. There was a lot of debate, but I'm actually happy with how this one turned out.

The movie starts off with the death of King T'Challa. Although they never say what the cause of death was, I think how the scene played out was more for Boseman. It was touching and heartwarming. I had tears in my eyes.

The rest of the movie was action packed and full of emotion. Shuri is struggling with her brother's death and how she wasn't able to save him. There is also a new contender on the horizon, one that can take down Wakanda and destroy the rest of the world.

There is a lot going on in this movie. The introduction of new characters good and bad, and a new storyline put into motion. The one thing that I can't get over is some of the costumes are ridiculous looking. Okoye's costume.... She looks like she has a squid on her head. If this is my only gripe, I can deal with it.

All in all, this was a great movie.
