Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Review: Letitia Wright’s movie makes you grieve and celebrate, in equal measure


Walking into the theater to see Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, I was immediately intrigued and brought to tears. Ryan Coogler, along with co-writer Joe Robert Cole, wasted no time addressing the elephant in the room, which is an irreparable loss for Chadwick Boseman. The first half hour will also leave a cold-hearted and emotional wreck, allowing not only the characters but MCU fans to mourn both King T’Challa and Boseman. Wakandan women who love T’Challa are given enough time to process his pain in different ways; Whether it’s Shuri (Letitia Wright), who chooses to bury herself in work rather than mourn her older brother, or Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), who finds solace in spirituality, or even Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), who lives far away Deal damage at your own rate.

While pain is an important perspective in Black Panther: The Story of Wakanda Forever, neither Ryan Coogler nor the powerful cast allowed it to dominate the entire narrative. Instead, it feeds us nostalgia for the previous MCU movies we know and love with everything Black Panther got right the first time around. Two incredible performances are fronted by Letitia Wright and Angela Bassett, who use their real-life misery to express their hearts. Bassett gets a Shakespearean moment during a hearing at the United Nations when she aptly educates those who want to hunt vibranium belonging to Wakanda for her malicious intent. Wright, on the other hand, deftly weaves through different nuances of emotion, which she relentlessly hammers away at every twist and turn. Equally impressive is Tenoch Huerta, who brings to life Namor, a respected Marvel character that comic book fans have been eagerly waiting to see on the big screen. With Namor, we are introduced to an unknown civilization, Talokan, where cinematographer Sharad Durald Arkapaw shines brightest. Represented at its finest, the contrast and similarities in aesthetics between Wakanda and Talokan are spectacular to behold and behold in conjunction with the surface above.

Without giving up the trademark MCU humor, we have Danai Gurira’s Okoye (with the always exciting Dora Milaje at her side, who never fails to give you goosebumps) and Winston Duke’s M’Baku to make us laugh, but it doesn’t Need more. that this. Equally exciting is the introduction of Dominic Thorne as Ironheart/RiRi Williams, who is just the right amount of intellectual geek to match Shuri, albeit with some questionable technology in tow. While Lupita Nyong’o’s Nakia takes a backseat this time around, it’s hard not to get emotional over the Oscar-winning actress every time she walks onto the scene.

Other influential MCU entries are Mabel Cadena and Alex Livinalli as Namora and Atuma, the first showing just how bloody Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter is when it comes to intricate details in depicting culture through clothing. . Another winner is Ludwig Göransson’s masterful music that raises emotions to the highest level. When it comes to the action sequences, while the final fight has moments of excitement, flourishes, and some CGI to miss, it’s when there are fewer characters that the stakes are high and your entertainment is left out. This is especially seen when the FBI invade Shuri, Okoye, and Riri from all corners, which then leads to a high-stakes street chase.

One creative decision for me on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which was a risk but one that would be more than worth it, is not to fully tie it into the Phase 4 story of the MCU. Rather, with a few exceptions like the addition of Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and director De Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) into the mix, the sequel doesn’t leave much of a residue. This allows fans to really be surprised by the heartwarming mid-credits scene, which certainly leaves many breathless. Plus, there’s a superstar cameo to watch! At the end of the day, running for two hours and 41 minutes, Black Panther reveals his bittersweet symphony.

Ultimately, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a real love letter to Chadwick Boseman, who wholeheartedly anchored the original. And one whose eternal legacy breaks up nicely with tantalizing installments like Ryan Coogler’s dedicated directorial debut.

Points in favor:

What keeps the ship afloat in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, without its captain Chadwick Boseman, is an all-star cast led by the exquisitely talented Letitia Wright and the enigmatic veteran Angela Bassett. The Tenoch Huerta is a welcome addition, as is the Talcan. It’s also a well-balanced story where sadness never overpowers emotion and the “tradition meets modernity” trappings customary in the Black Panther franchise. MCU humor has cropped up everywhere, while character development also gets its moment to shine. The final battle sequence is infused with the wondrous magic we know and love.

Bad points:

In contrast, the two-hour, 41-minute runtime can be felt by casual fans of the MCU, as it’s not your typical run-of-the-mill superhero movie. The predictability factor is also strange in the narrative, which can feel similar to the original, with little to go on. Overly lenient CGI will further divide your views on the film.

Main features:

  • Letitia Wright and Angela Bassett provide scene-stealing performances.
  • Great cinematography from Autumn Durald Arkapaw, especially during the Talokan sequences.
  • The slow burning process seems to be thanks to the inevitable Black Panther.


While Chadwick Boseman and King T’Challa have the wheels set on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, he’s left behind, both on film and in real life, to gift us with a film filled with the thrills of an order of superheroes. You are left hopeless and hopeless and it is in silence, you console yourself. And to that I say, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Excels.
