Review: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

At the dawn of King T'Challa's death, invading forces from around the world target Wakanda's vibranium, unleashing chaos, and it will be the duty of Shuri, M'Baku, Nakia and Okoye to defend the nation, especially when a mysterious Mexican civilization emerges from the depths of the sea.


Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Tenoch Huerta & Dominique Thorne.


a more in-depth review will be posted soon. I had an awful experience with the cinema with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, where the audio was heavily affected and irritating. This affected the film experience.


Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had the most difficult task of continuing the incredible legacy set by Chadwick Boseman, after his heartbreaking passing. And I can confidently say, they continued it with such excellence and heart that it destroyed me.


Ryan Coogler delivers another breathtakingly beautiful project full of heart, empathy and compassion for every detail and theme present. Accompanied by powerhouse performances from Letitia Wright & Angela Bassett, whom brought me to tears on multiple occasions.


The world building is just as extraordinary as the previous ‘Black Panther’, diving deep into the oceans of our world, introducing one of the best MCU antagonists yet with Namor. A well fleshed out and developed introduction to a character I look forward to discovering more, Tenoch played him brilliantly.


To build onto the world building is Ludwig’s phenomenal score, rivalling some of the best scores of the year. It’s culturally powerful and subtly gorgeous, bringing all new meaning to many scenes. Whether it is tension or, conveying the feeling of grief. One of the most present themes that carry the whole film.


It isn’t perfect, however. While for the most part the screenplay is fantastic, there were a few moments, particularly involving comedy where it didn’t work. As well as some dialogue that felt rather forced and unnatural. Which didn’t help due to the awkward editing at times, cutting too early and too late to leave an impact. While an improvement on the CGI, it can be noticeable in certain sequences.


Overall, while not the perfect film, it is certainly making a stamp in the MCU as one of its best. Thematically powerful & rich. With wonderful directing and performances, I couldn’t recommend this enough.


A film certainly to get better with each viewing.
