Movie review for Black Panther Wakanda Forever: 4 stars
That is sad. It’s magnificent. The heart is at stake. It concerns the mind. The topic is love. It is about getting even. It’s about distinctions. And similarities are at the forefront of it all.
Wakanda Forever manages to embody the dignity of a real Marvel hero without the adornments of one, making it a fitting tribute to the first Black Panther movie and the actor who played it, Chadwick Boseman. It was written and directed once more by Ryan Coogler.
In terms of how the cards fall in this world, it is just as political as the previous movie, albeit more clumsy. And in conceptualising the same, the southern region of the world ought to have developed more fully.
Could two countries that have successfully restrained the rapacity of imperial colonial powers despite being aware of the risks they pose react differently if they are given the reins?
One of those two nations—Wakanda—was established by a people who Spanish conquistadors had driven under the sea in Mesoamerica. The other nation was Talokan. Talokan, like Wakanda, holds the highly sought-after mineral Vibranium, and both nations pose a threat to the other.
Talokan wants to venture out and eliminate any possibility that the world might pose a threat, but Wakanda wants the world to leave them alone since Black Panther’s death. Do Wakanda and Talokan need to be enemies or can they work together?
The potential for peace amongst groups of people who have been driven to the limits of survival is thoroughly explored in the movie.
The late Black Panther T’Challa’s mother, Queen Ramonda (Bassett), is in charge of Wakanda as his sister Shuri (Wright) learns the limits of her own abilities. A demi-god with wings on his ankles, pointed ears, and a bleeding heart for his people, Namor (Huerta) is the leader of the Talokan.
All of the dominance-related tools are in the hands of women in Wakanda. Because there are no men around to cushion the blows, Coogler does not make any allowances for White faces that are more appealing to the box office or for the story’s heroines, who are women. Ramonda doesn’t try to act as though the loss of family is mitigated by duty; in fact, her response to learning that Shuri might be in danger is as dissimilar from a king’s as it is possible to get.
The performance is excellent from all the actors, but especially from Wright, Bassett, and Gurira as General Okoye of Wakanda. While human emotions are at their core, the action is also amazing. The movie flies, whether it’s on land, in the sea, in the air, or on a ship.
Wakanda Forever is maybe overly insistent on maintaining a sombre and depressing atmosphere, as evidenced by its numerous allusions to T’Challa’s — or more specifically, Chadwick Boseman’s — untimely death.
It’s a goodbye to Wakanda Forever. The kingdom of Wakanda deserves praise. There is a time to let go, though, as the movie itself states.
