Black Panther (2018)
King T'Challa returns home from America to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne by factions within his own country as well as without. Using powers reserved to Wakandan kings, T'Challa assumes the Black Panther mantel to join with girlfriend Nakia, the queen-mother, his princess-kid sister, members of the Dora Milaje (the Wakandan 'special forces') and an American secret agent, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.

Brilliant and touching
Absolutely the worst movie.
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
Wow wow wow ! What I am really seeing on the first few pages of the review thread of this film. So many negative reviews and most of them coming from a viewpoint that the film has been overrated by critics. Seriously ! when you buy a ticket, you never really ask a critic for consideration. Sometimes you enjoy even the worst movie in theater. Judging on the basis of Critics's opinions seems dumb and totally childish. Anyways this is my opinion. I recently watched the film and to be really frank, had not really bothered about the reviews. I would have watched anyway even if they were negative.Like all Marvel Superhero films, Black Panther follows the traditional route of Good Vs Evil but with style and substance. It's not a flawless film. The pace dips many times in between and the editing could have been crisper. The CGI also looks unimpressive at many places. But this film truly belongs to its actors. Each and everyone of them is an absolute marvel on Screen.However, the two actors although very good and performed extremely well didn't leave a lasting Impression I was expecting throughout. Chadwik Boseman (Black Panther) and Letitia Wright (Shuri). The latter's performance has been applauded like crazy and I found her overrated. Don't even understand how she's given more Importance that Okoye and Nokia who were far better etched characters than her. Anyways Micheal Jordan is simply superb as KillMonger. Hope he now has understood that he suits the image of a larger than life supervillian than playing a dumb Johnny Storm in fantastic four series. I also felt they could have avoided Morgan Freeman's Ross character as he barely has much to do. The action sequences, fights are another highlight. The choreography is simply stunning. For me the stars of the show are Danai Gurira as Okoye and Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia. Both are extemely brilliant actresses. For the previous, she has such a commanding presence on screen and her dialogue delivery is top-notch. Although she remains tough, she comes alive even in small emotional bits. The Latter nailed the part of Nakia with great balance of vulnerability and emotions. Both the characters stay with you even after the screening has concluded. I really enjoyed the film, although this is not a perfect film by all means, but its a deeply satisfying superhero experience.
Black Panther is one of my favorite Marvel movies and I consider it one of the best. With a vast collection of superheroes in the growing Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was only a matter of time before this movie was made and it was done in the best possible way.I'm a big fan of African culture and loved the attention to detail Ryan Coogler and the creative team put into the movie. They researched clothing, art, architecture, and customs of different African communities and combined them to create one seamless city.I'm a big fan of Captain America, Spiderman, and other of the bigger names, but feel that superheroes of different races, ethnicities, and sexual orientations have been underrepresented. Black Panther is a step in the right direction. I love this movie because I like to absorb different cultures that I'm unfamiliar with because they're exciting. As a white person, I don't get a lot of that from movies because different cultures are underrepresented. Overrall, this movie was great and I would like to see more like it.
The way they cinematically weaved this Marvel Fantasy into today's (not widely talked about) Technological (nanotechnology) as well as futuristic technology will electrify-electrifying capabilities. I'm hooked! Waiting for the sequel, Black Panther: The Wake of a Nation.
Short Review - I personally liked it after watching thrice. The simple plot & the emotional factors were good but after seeing Rotten Tomatoes giving 98% and Metacritic giving 88 I was unflattered. Yeah it's a good movie but no near The Dark Knight. Visuals sucks (comparing it's budget) & so many plot holes. It's a good movie but not the best superhero movie.
