“WAKANDA FOREVER” IS THE MOVIE OF THE FUTURE
March 3, 2023
I am stunned. This movie is perfect. I keep trying to find anything, ANYTHING, wrong with this movie. For example, any continuity errors or weird lines or off putting graphics, but there’s nothing.
I went to this movie expecting disappointment, which had followed the recent TV shows and movies Marvel has produced, but this was really good. Perhaps it is one of the best made.
The movie had so many callbacks to the movie prior, so it was just a joy to recognize characters and scenes. I think the most important callback was M’Baku, who I’m going to argue is the most important side character in the whole movie. He’s a different voice from the other leaders of Wakanda and the voice of reason to Shuri (Letitia Wright). He questions the decisions of Ramonda (Angela Bassett) and Shuri as they struggle with loss and the dawn of a world war. However, in the end he does trust their initial decision, and I believe that M’Baku is the reason Wakanda Forever ended the way it did. His small voice potentially saved nations, and Winston Duke did an excellent job at being just as intimidating and funny as the last movie.
This movie had a strong element of revenge that grows stronger as the movie progresses. Namor, the lead villain played by Tenoch Huerta, wants revenge from the wrong doings done to his people. Shuri wants revenge against Namor for reasons I shall not divulge in for your sake and mine. The element of revenge was the huge part of Black Panther; it was the whole reason that N’Jadaka (Killmonger by Michael B. Jordan) goes to Wakanda. He wants revenge for his father against his family.
I don’t see anything wrong with this film. The only qualm I have is that for most of the time the bad guys are blue like the Avatar aliens. This movie is just spectacular, it’s cinematically perfect, and it is the best way to honor Chadwick Boseman. It’s also a marriage of cultures and the perfect sequel the the original movie.
Ladies, gentlemen, and all who are in between and outside, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
