Black Panther is revolutionary but not so good. It is the first flick in Marvel Cinematic Universe that features black protagonist and not just another superhero movie. Ryan Coogler becomes the first African-American movie-maker to create on a Marvel megaphone. He has done impeccable work to movie watcher immerse in a properly Afro-centric universe.

However, it is not a shame to say Black Panther is not a little better movie with excess of suffocating CGI (computer generated image).
Black Panther begins with a dispute between two sons of Wakanda, an African kingdom in the vicinity of Uganda. After the death of the king, father, the brave T’Challa declares himself as the leader of the country. Before ascending the throne he was preparing for rituals.
Wakanda in fact lies west of Lake Victoria occupied in the real world by Uganda, Rwanda and northern Tanzania. It is very poor and mountainous. The place is jungly and inaccessible. Over the years the Wakandans have cultivated condescending stereotypes of Africa as camouflage, preventing outside interference.
The action sequences in the movie are to some extent at industry standard, but does not exceed. It plays less like a conventional superhero movie.
Black Panther is stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B Jordan, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis. It is 12A certified and 134 mins in length.
The movie is releasing in United Kingdom on February 13, Tuesday.
