Conclusion – Personal thoughts and recommendations
Black Panther was a very highly anticipated film, and they did not disappoint. I was excited for something new but I was slightly worried that it wasn’t going to live up to the hype. Like of course it’s a good thing for the diversity in the cast in comparison to the other films from the MCU, but without a good storyline, the message wouldn’t have the same affect. So for that, I’m glad my worries weren’t met. I truly did enjoy this movie.
I would recommend this film to anyone who was/is considering seeing the film, especially now that it’s available on iTunes. I would also recommend this to those who aren’t big fans of superhero movies because this does take a different approach to the genre, you won’t be disappointed.
To conclude, a good thing to keep in mind is that the film is a continuation on the other Marvel films so although you don’t necessarily need that background knowledge, it’s still good to have seen Captain America: Civil War before hand to get a feel for the movie.
If you choose to see it, enjoy! And comment your opinion on the film in the comments or on my in-depth review of the film (warning: review contains spoilers from the film).
