Movie review: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by: Ryan Coogler, 2022

The Black Panther is a new type of superhero, a strong and intelligent minority, who manages to challenge all our fixed concepts. The late Chadwick Boseman, who played the Black Panther in the past, is the basis of the plot, the driving force and after his death the question was asked if the film series even existed.

You can say that "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" is a love letter to Bozeman, a kind of fascinating discussion about grief and loss and how to move on. The film is about the funeral of King T'Challa and how his sister (Latisha Wright Shorey), tries to overcome the loss out of respect for his legacy. The whole film is a kind of salute to the previous films, which can be very oppressive at times. After that, a war between two tribes develops, which changes the tone to a lighter and full of action.

The movie "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" is very long, almost three hours and too busy. It ranges from humor to a lot of dark and gloomy scenes, which can be very distressing. It is different from the general atmosphere of Marvel, much less optimistic and happy, what's more, the level of effects is not good, as we were used to.

Finally, it can be said that the movie "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" is not one of Marvel's best movies, which after successful years is starting to be very uneven in the level of movies it releases.

The film "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" is a mediocre film, which deals with very important things, but presses too much on the emotional glands and makes light of itself in a stupid way, which actually destroys the more successful sections. This is not necessarily a bad movie, but Disney's quality mark has been damaged, one can only hope that the future holds better movies for us.
