Welcome back to my blog! This month I am here to tell you about the #1 movie in the United States. If you haven’t heard of it, I will hopefully explain this film to the best of my ability. Released on February 16th, the movie Black Panther has caught the attention of many people, and has been claimed to break records and has crushed the expectations of box offices world wide.
This Marvel movie started off with a simple origin story, of a nation known as Wakanda. A young man named T’Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) was going back home to be crowned king, after his father passed away in a terrorist attack in America. The movie progresses as an old enemy appears to be causing harm to Wakanda, this is when T’Challa’s duty as king and Black Panther is put to the test. The Black Panther must be able to keep his nation safe, and make sure their advancements in technology don’t get into the wrong hands. Throughout this movie T’Challa experiences betrayal, defeat and love. The viewers will be hanging onto their seats as they try to figure out the fate of Wakanda, as well as the king of the African nation.
This movie has touched many successes that will be recorded in our history. First and foremost, this movie has portrayed a different culture. Rituals and traditions that most of us have not seen in any other superhero movie were heavily shown in Black Panther. Critics such as the New York Post say this is more than just a superhero movie. They believe this movie is brimming with cultural resonance, tying it to the real world more than any other Marvel film. Many viewers have left the movie with a new hope in what Marvel Studios will do with its future films. This movie has also featured an amazing soundtrack by Kendrick Lamar, including many other artists as well. The soundtrack itself has stuck to the same theme throughout all 14 songs: Empowerment. The soundtrack has been a huge hit and could be a change to the music industry. The album has been on the top of the Billboard after selling 154 thousand copies the first week it was released.
Overall, Black Panther has gained praise for the tremendous outcome and it continues to be recognized by many people. This was definitely a big success for Marvel Studios, if you don’t believe me ask your friends!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you next time for another inspirational movie review!
