About Black Panther & Sequel early moments.
In first Black Panther movie, Erik Killmonger destroys Wakanda’s entire supply of the heart-shaped herb. It’s the bioluminescent flower responsible for endowing Wakanda’s hero-protector: the Black Panther, with regenerative vitality & supahumie strength 🦹 T’Challa chose to reveal Wakanda’s true power to whole Planet. When the sequel begins, King T’Challa is dead. Yes, the cause of it written as virus, not glorious death.. Nearly a year after his “sudden” passing, his friends & loved ones continue to mourn & live silent life. Sorry for misleading lil bit there as funeral had zero Avengers. I mean those who were close friends with T’Challa like Bucky & others 😤 Meanwhile, the outside world puts sights on Wakanda, planning to take share of its invaluable resources. Dangerous threat emerges in the form of the mythical underwater city of Talocan (Atlantis) & its leader. The wing-footed mutant NamorHhHh (baddie with ski jumper body), who’s worshipped by his people as a living Deity. After reading this, take a look at my Kenobi review PT1 & PT2 🛋
Chadwick told to family member before passed away that he wants T’Challa recasted.
^^ Sadly it didn’t happen. It should’ve been done with Characters like: Killmonger, Nakia or Aneka. Both ladies would’ve been better than Shuri who took it. Of course best new T’Challa would be Michael B Jordan who played Killmonger. Also Michaela Coel who plays Aneka. No, Mickey Rat Corporation’s big suits were wrong when said it’s too dangerous to recast him 😏 Yes write up for Killmonger to take the title could’ve been easily accomplished. What’s the main plot for this sequel that barely has it’s title character in it 🤔 This is borefest sequel where close to fifty kilos “black panther” beats much stronger mcu character born in planet tellus 🤦♂️ Lets not go into ‘draining strength plan’ 🤭 Back to plot: It’s about Vibranium & secondly to take out all evil colonizers known as humans. There’s a lot of em for him as Talocan (nah he’s Atlantean) buddy known as ‘NamorHhHh‘ declared war to whole humie race 🙄 Namor’s origin changed to Mexican or Aztec was a silly move by Ryan Coogler, who wanted to add more unnecessary cultural diversity.
The acting is ‘mostly’ good on this mcu movie. Angela Bassett deserves an award for performance. That so even the writing is shameful for her part when comes to replacing leadership as it didn’t happen like in first movie 🤨 This is second longest mcu movie now by end of year 6022 (2022 by oldest storybook on Planet Tellus) as it stands at sniff range behind Avengers: Boregame. 🤏 Soundtrack is okey as in not lifting you into stratosphere via ears massage, but is fine for this type of comic adaptation movie. 🎶 Visuals are almost top notchy buenos through two hours & forty one minutes. There are clear moments when the overuse & lil rushed cgi can be seen as it ‘sticks‘ to your eye like a pink bunny on a autumn colored tree. 🙆 Story itself on this twenty minutes too long movie is average, with a lot of dumb “twists“. They happen because story says so, not for em to make sense. Some scenes are too dark, could’ve cut many of em & plot stay same.
Towards final thoughts & goofies that gave a chuckle here & there.
Not the worst MCU movie ive seen so far, but not close to top three. Currently this falls into same box with Thor movie (i have clear favorites in mcu) that came out earlier this year. Not being worst doesn’t say much when it’s on same line with hilariously bad Thor: Mockery & Bang 🤔 The scenes that reference T’Challa are handled with such poignant grace that put you into memory lane. Those are one of the few goodies on this movie as they give Boseman a royal sendoff from franchise 👑 Wasn’t weepy time for me, but i did feel the meaning even it’s been a while since Chadwick passed away 🤔 Not good how casually Angela Bassett, the sequel’s heart & soul, is so casually dismissed. She should’ve stayed even is above sixty years of age. She’s a stunner & even her body would look as BP than Letitia’s. M’Baku said right things, but again was pushed aside. He deserved more screen time. 😢
Conclusion: The trailer really had me excited, but after almost 3hours i left the theater underwhelmed. I know many black poc & at mexicans who dislike this movie. So semi forced representation doesn’t work & that’s good. I might add & change this after rewatched (skipping on it for sure) on Mickey+ once lands there. No second cinema viewing for BP2, but second & maybe third viewing for Black Adam later on this week 🎥 It has better cgi, mostly better acting, good humor sprinkled in right places & fun supah-hero action movie 🙂 Happy to support it & DCU that needs our help to save it from current situation it’s in. Remember to stream Black Adam on Hbo Max once it drops there on early december. Zaslav & other suits in WB have made eight years plan for comic adaptations into cinema & tv show format. Hopefully it turns out ok 🤞 James Gunn & that other fella have big tasks to do. I think they’re gonna do well & first sign for it is Peacemaker’s S02 arriving next year. Also hope good success for DCU’s Blue Beetle when it comes out before mid next year. May it get revenue at least double of production cost 🤞 Kindly: Mcu & Dcu Fan & forever Hbo Max subber.
- Even with all Mickey Rat’s money & this being a sequel to one of their biggest bling bling movies, they still show Marvel’s CGI problem 🧐
- NamorHhHh is one of the strongest Tellus born (kinda in general) characters. So cause of his powah level he’d have little trouble with slicing vibranium objects. The issue is that Namor has varying levels of power in BP2 that downplay him. Only reason why he lost at all was because he’s the villain & he had to lose, but if he wasn’t, then what 🤔
- Namor has been one of my favorites through thirty years of being comics fan. It’s tragic that this portrayal will be the way how entire generation will know him. Unbelievable how MCU has fallen from it’s greatness.. 😕
- Corn Rows on Cottonheart’s armored helmet 😆 Even Power Rangers have better looking combat suits. She won’t get to keep it. Creates new one for her telly series that airs on next year at Mickey+. May it not be this one with hoofs. I have forever sub there & i look forward to Willow series that airs pilot episode in two weeks. I hope he won’t be humiliated in his own show.
- Talocan warrior screams like a little frightened girl when he’s thrown back to water from short distance 🥴 Very strange behavior for a person who lives in underwater city & doesn’t use vehicle as transport when traveling there.
- BP2’s cast officially killed the meaning of the word “representation” by repeating it on interviews 😂
