Aside from a reasonably touching tribute to the deceased T'Challa, it had all the emotional heft of a music video. 6/10. 7 if you consider that the team had to work without the heart and soul of the Black Panther franchise.
Angela Bassett as Queen Ramonda was the only powerful presence on screen. And if you hadn't known the director's work on the first Black Panther and Fruitvale Station, you'd have thought this was the first feature film by someone whose credits only had music videos.
The dissonance between the cool music playing in the background and the emotional scene playing out on screen was unforgivable at times. Bad editing spolied the much-improved fight choreography.
The forced humour also betrayed the lack of confidence in the audience to mourn the character of T'Challa.
Filmed obviously suffered without T'Challa.
Didn't feel part of the MCU, felt more like a filler film so they can set up Black Panther 3
Like with Black Panther 1, the 'villain' actually had a point and you can't help but not want the Wakandans to win
Oh, how the Marvel have fallen...
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
