| Meh, highly overrated - not even close to "the best" Marvel movie
The cinematography of this film was just OK with some obvious bad CGI, and one would come to expect something better from a Marvel superhero film (as shown by the budget). The directing was fairly decent.

The story was ok, but nothing overly exciting. Way too much spotlight on the Black Panther conflict here. I feel the story would have been better told had there been another villain.

The acting also seemed either way too overboard for some of the characters, while others under-performed.

Nevertheless, enjoyable, but certainly not even close to "the best" Marvel movie. It's only a 6/10 from me.

Trivia

Rondavels (modern buildings that resemble African huts) are seen at the tops of Wakanda's skyscrapers, inspired by the mountains at Blyde River Canyon, South Africa.


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.

Goofs

With all the advanced Wakandan technology and medicine, and the accepted policy being to keep it all secret from outsiders, there is no reason for Shuri to even let Agent Ross regain consciousness while in the country, let alone spill any secrets once he does. The logical thing would have been to keep him sedated, tell him nothing and wake him up outside of Wakanda.


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.
