Being a huge Marvel fan myself, I might be a little biased towards the plot but I hardly care. A folktale-like prologue recounts the history of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, the movie opens with a flashback to 1992, when a younger T’Chaka, played by Atandwa Kani makes a surprise visit to Oakland, California, in order to confront a rogue Wakandan spy. Back in the present, Boseman’s T’Challa is preparing for his coronation day, which includes a potential challenge from any of Wakanda’s five tribes through ritual combat, as well as a sacred ceremony in which he officially becomes the clandestine nation’s, Black Panther. After T’Challa takes the throne, intelligence surfaces that notorious arms dealer Ulysses Klaue has stolen an important artifact from the British Museum. T’Challa takes his top warrior and head of the royal guard General Okoye and his former love, Nakia, a smart Wakandan spy, to attempt to capture Klaue (one of the few outsiders who knows the truth about how much vibranium- which is the most valuable metal on Earth is available in Wakanda). Meanwhile, Everett Ross the operative from CIA and Klaue’s mysterious young ally who is revealed to be N’Jadaka complicate the mission. It turns out that our mystery troublemaker is a former SEAL who has a very personal score to settle with both T’Challa and the Wakandans.

The movie is illustrated beautifully. The visuals and cinematography are stunning, the soundtrack is amazing as well. The music is well suited and creates the best-suited mood during the fight sequences that are in the movie.
Sandie Angulo Chen from Common Sense Media says “Ryan Coogler’s masterful superhero drama is unlike any other, featuring outstanding acting, breath-taking art direction, fascinating royal intrigue, memorable action sequences, and surprising depth”.
According to Jimi Famurewa from the Empire says about the movie “Like Taika Waititi before him, Ryan Coogler gives the Marvel template a bold auteurist twist with an African extravaganza that packs a muscular intensity and challenges as much as it exhilarates”.
It is the best movie to come out from the wonderful universe of MCU yet. Until now, whether movies hail from the DC or MCUs, big-screen superheroes have traditionally been white guys put on this earth (e.g. ex-planetary Superman and Thor, or the homegrown Captain America and War Machine) who defend America from its enemies.
Black Panther is a breath of fresh air and is a radical movie in this genre which has tried to venture out into the much-untapped space of adequate representation and is different from that commonly seen. It is a drastically different kind of comic-book movie, one with a proud Afrocentric twist, featuring nearly an all-black cast, that largely ignores everything else and focuses instead on the fictional nation of Wakanda. So much so that virtually everything that distinguishes “Black Panther” from the past Marvel films works to this standalone entry’s advantage.
The characters are here to leave a mark. They come with their own emotional touch and humor which is something that one has come to expect from Marvel movies. The camera and animation are nothing less than award-worthy. The movie is on the list of the best superhero movies ever made. The film became one of the year’s best-reviewed, receiving all-round praise from critics for collectively, its direction, screenplay, acting- particularly the performances of the central characters of Boseman, Jordan, and Wright. Many critics considered it to be one of the best films set in the MCU and noted its central plot of cultural significance, with organizations naming it one of the Top 10 Films of 2018.
To sum up, the whole movie is a delight. It will be close to the heart to both kids and the adults. Basically, the movie is for anyone and everyone who is a Marvel fan. The whole movie watching experience is amazing. It is a perfect blend of fast-paced action, high emotions, funny and witty moments and a strong yet emotional protagonist. The movie is here to give you a change from the usual superhero movies that follow a similar track. Here’s an exciting tip for the viewers, do not forget to be patient and watch the movie right till the end of the credits.
