Wakanda Forever! – Black Panther Review – All Hype or Best Comic Book Movie of All Time?
It’s no secret that Marvel’s Black Panther is one of the most anticipated films of all time and early reviews are saying it’s living up to that. But is it all hype or is this film that really that good?
Spoiler Alert: Yes it is absolutely that good.
In fact, I think people are underselling just how good this film is. Ryan Coogler has done it again. He’s three for three now with great movies (Fruitvale Station, Creed and now Black Panther). It is impossible to fully convey how great this movie is. Marvel Studios has set a new high bar for diversity, inclusion and representation in film. From the story to the characters to the visuals, this movie is extremely well put together. And with a rumored $200 million budget, Marvel sparred no expense.
Check out my non-spoiler review as I break down what works so well for this film. Trust me, I only scratch the surface and we'll have longer discussion reviews on the Movie Trailer Review podcast and Premium Network coming soon.
