Black Panther: Wakanda Forever review, the new Marvel movie that carries on Chadwick Boseman’s legacy and attempts to reform the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever arrives in theaters November 9, 2022 with a heavy legacy on its shoulders. This is not just a sequel to a movie marvel Most appreciated and successful, but this feat must be repeated by having to replace the protagonist. The miserable Chadwick Boseman, the Black Panther from the 2018 movie and all subsequent vignettes, died in 2020 after colon cancer, leaving an insurmountable void in the hearts of all fans.
“Business is work,” says one of the most famous English-speaking proverbs, and in this way the Wakanda saga cannot stop with the disappearance of its hero. With the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Ryan Coogler, in this case in the dual role of director and screenwriter, wanted on the one hand to honor Boseman and on the other hand to find a way to bring Wakanda back to the center of the Marvel universe and make sure there was a rendition of the least traumatic as possible. Delivery and not a replacement.
In this Black Panther: Wakanda Forever movie review We’ll try to tell you how, from this point of view, Disney succeeded in intent, although the film confirms that Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is struggling with overlap.
The movie does not have time to start and you are immediately thrown into the drama. T’Challa He suddenly falls ill, and despite Wakanda’s technology and Shuri’s efforts, there is nothing that can be done. Without a heart-shaped herb, the disease that struck the superhero suddenly could not be stopped. The black panther dies, leaving the African superpower without its king and protector.
Other countries of the world (oddly enough France and the United States and not the usual Russia, China or Iran) would like to take advantage of this weakness to get their hands on the precious. vibraniumBut Queen Mother Ramonda shows how Wakanda, even without her superhero, thanks to its inhabitants and technology, is able to continue to protect its secrets and people.
It is unfortunate that an American scientific mission inadvertently awakens someone A new superpowerwhich will put Wakanda in a difficult position: protecting themselves or world peace?
black woman power
If Black Panther hits the right strings to awaken a sense of belonging to the African-American population, this sequel also adds a bit of a touch of flair. female pride. All the heroes of the film, in fact, are strong and independent women, capable of taking positions of power in an effective and decisive manner. As we should add. There is no shortage of positive masculine characters, like Everett K. What the most powerful nation on the planet.
In the 2 hours and 41 minutes of the movie We will witness the rise and fall and redemption of Shuri, who is able to find herself despite her nation’s endangerment and her heart pleading for revenge. But we’ll also see how Ryan Coogler manages to fix the real world with the cinematic, paying homage to Bosman, finding an explanation for Black Panther’s death, but above all trying to make his farewell bittersweet, through his legacy and sowing the seeds for the Black Panther’s future.
Good as a writer not a director
While we didn’t mind Black Panther: Wakanda Forever from a reconstruction standpoint, we weren’t impressed with how the film was packaged. From a design point of view and special effects, in fact, Kogler’s work failed to surprise. Between some rather muddled dialogue and not particularly captivating action scenes, perhaps also due to (not) a particularly not very charismatic enemy, especially when he moves his wings over his ankles, this fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn’t end with Pang, already underscoring the difficulty of recovery. A hangover from the end game.
Despite the length of the movie, there are no great epic moments Reasons The ones that drive people to action are always very weak and the team fight scenes are very poor. The challenge between two superpowers is solved through a boat fight with 2 planes and 4 whales. Literally. A little, in our opinion, for films that can count on excellent budgets.
The time spent in the cinema is a lot, and it is also pleasant to pass, but there density What we’ve seen are few and some of the characters are still somewhat superficial, not allowing the story to reach its proverbial climax. He comes out satisfied, but on the surface. Thinking about it calmly, some inconsistencies appear almost immediately and it would have been nice if some issues had been explored, only hinted at here.
