6
| An average and typical Marvel film
97% Rotten Tomatoes. Really? Critics have gone mad or been paid a descent amount of money.

It has no special story, and the plot is totally predictable. Colors and visuals are the only gorgeous parts of this film. I felt cheated after how amazingly Black Panther was shown in Civil War.

It has been released in 3D but there are merely a few shots that felt good in 3D.

Overall acting is okay; no actor leaves their mark on your mind. And as always, this Marvel movie too suffers with the villain deficiency syndrome.

6 out of 10 from me, that's it.

Trivia

Director Ryan Coogler brought in consultants who are experts on African history and politics to work on defining Wakanda: "There are many African countries, each with different histories, mythologies, and cultures. There are several tribes who live amongst each other and together they make the identity of their country. We honed in on some of the history/cultural influences from African countries and then made estimations."


Quotes

N'Jadaka: Baba...
N'Jobu: Yes, my son.
N'Jadaka: Tell me a story.
N'Jobu: Which one?
N'Jadaka: The story of home.
N'Jobu: Millions of years ago, a meteorite made of vibranium, the strongest substance in the universe, struck the continent of Africa, affecting the plant life around it. And when the time ...


Goofs

When the 3 Wakandan's enter the club in Wusan, South Korea, they walk through a metal detector that doesn't utter as much as a peep, in spite of all three wearing obviously metallic accessories (Tchalla's ring and bracelet, Okuye's Necklaces and Bangles, and Shuri's bracelet and purse), and the bouncers don't stop them or ask any questions about the jewelry. The detector is definitely working as evidenced when Klaue and crew walk through it, so why were the bouncers so lax earlier?


Crazy Credits

The main credits for the people of Wakanda are colored according to the tribe:

  • the cast credits for the members of the Wakandan royal family are in purple/gold, the royal colors.
  • Forest Whitaker's credit is in purple, as befits Zuri's role as adviser to the royal family.
  • Lupita Nyong'o's credit is shaded green, the River Tribe color.
  • Danai Gurira's credit is shaded red, the Dora Milaje color.
  • Daniel Kaluuya's credit is shaded blue, the Border Tribe color.
  • Winston Duke's credit is represented by an ape face, since the Jabari have no tribe color.


Alternate Versions

In advance of the film's release in India, the filmmakers removed all references to the Hindu god Hanuman presumably to avoid generating any controversy surrounding the film.
