Black Panther, one of the most highly anticipated films of the year, truly lived up to the hype.
Chadwick Boseman stars as T’Challa/Black Panther. T’Challa returns to his home country, Wakanda, after the death of his father to take on the role of king. Everyone in the world thinks that Wakanda is a third world country but it’s actually one of the most advanced places in the world. Wakanda is threatened by Klaue (Andy Serkis) with the help of Erik Killmonger who plan to reveal to the rest of the world what Wakanda is really like. Killmonger decides he’d rather work alone. He goes to Wakanda to challenge T’Challa for the throne. Once Killmonger “defeats” T’Challa, he begins his plan to send out vibranium weapons, the strongest metal on Earth, to the oppressed all around the world. The people of Wakanda know this is wrong but they can’t disobey their king. Some begin to rebel and fight both Killmonger and those who follow him. Shuri, Nakia, Okoye, and Ramonda (played by Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, and Angela Bassett respectively) help to defend their country and stop the vibranium from being sent out. Once they successfully take down Killmonger, they realize he was right in a way so they decide to share what Wakanda has and is really like to the rest of the world.
