My Thoughts

Blank Panther is an exciting adventure film set in a futuristic world. It centers around Prince T-Challa, a new king who must fight his own family to keep his people safe. Wakanda has access to a special metal which has advanced them well beyond the rest of the world, and there are others who want to steal its power. T-Challa forms a group of powerful allies to help, including some beautiful warrior women, one of which he is in love with. Another man named Erik, son of the king's brother, turns up to challenge his claim, but he fights back. With constant challenges, will T-Challa every bring his kingdom the peace it deserves?

This is a great movie with lots of action, and characters you want to root for. Though I haven't personally read the comics, my son did, and he said they stay reasonably true to the original story-line. There are quite a bit of subtitles and they are relevant to the plot, so be prepared to keep your eyes on the screen and bring your reading glasses if you have them. I love how the film ties in current events in a subtle way. This is such a strong cast of characters, fighting for what is right. The women characters are especially strong and breathtaking.  I could watch it again and again. Be sure to pick up a copy for yourself in stores nationwide.
