The long-awaited superhero movie Black Panther is climbing the charts as one of the best movies of 2018.  Black Panther has been blowing up on social media platforms; its representation being celebrated by people of color.  Although the movie is mainly praised for its majority African-American casting, the visual effects also deserve to be marveled at.  There is also a recurring motif in the film, everyone always seems to bring up the metal used in Wakanda: vibranium.  This mineral plays a huge role in the entire movie, especially the creation of the Black Panther’s amazing body suit.

Beyond the fact that their native metal is the coolest thing ever, the acting in the movie was sub-par.  Michael B. Jordan did an exceptional job portraying Erik Killmonger, the movie’s main antagonist. He played his character very well, which gives a more intimate feeling to the watcher.  It makes one feel as if he/she feels the same heart-wrenching experiences as Erik. And of course, Marvel Studios always finds ways to slip some humor into an action-packed movie. It can be difficult to add some comedy into serious scenes, but they pull it off.

 

The special effects in Black Panther is one of the best I’ve seen in any movie.  Marvel always comes through with the visuals, and everything that happened in this movie melted together perfectly.  There was no blatantly obvious CGI that can be seen in other movies, and it made the movie seem all the more realistic.  However, it is easy to get lost in the plot of the film. Like any other movie, there are flaws. The movie moves really quickly in the beginning, and by the end, the plot has changed so much.  Despite that, it was a fantastic flick, and I recommend that everyone who has the time should watch it (and don’t forget about the two after-credit scenes)!
