    Amazing sequel.
    First of all, the ones who say this movie's boring are either white or just have a bland taste. And I won't blame you for that, perhaps the caucasian colonizing blood are just too strong.

    Overall a great movie. Great opening. They set the audience's emotion right where they need to be to get the whole movie as an experience. I love how the whole storyline isn't just a bull of strangely positive outcomes. It is realistic and it sends the true feelings of the characters.

    This movie is on another level of a superhero movie. It is not about killing villains and saving the world. It's about sacrificing yourself and your feelings to achieve the better.

    Long Live King T'Challa
    The world of Wakanda returns in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, a visually stunning and emotionally resonant sequel that honors the legacy of its groundbreaking predecessor. While the film doesn't quite reach the same level of brilliance as the original, it still offers a captivating story that explores the complexities of grief, leadership, and cultural identity.

    Set shortly after the tragic passing of King T'Challa, Wakanda Forever finds the nation grappling with its loss and facing new threats from within and without. As Wakanda's leaders navigate this uncertain landscape, they must also contend with the legacy of T'Challa, a void that cannot easily be filled.

    The film takes its time in exploring the emotional turmoil of Wakanda's characters, providing ample opportunity for them to process their grief and navigate the challenges they face. This approach lends depth and nuance to the story, going beyond the action sequences and spectacle that were so prevalent in the original.

    Letitia Wright delivers a solid performance as Shuri, the brilliant and resourceful sister of T'Challa, who steps up to assume the role of Wakanda's new leader. She captures Shuri's intelligence and determination, as she grapples with the weight of responsibility and the expectations placed upon her.

    The supporting cast is also strong, with Winston Duke returning as M'Baku, the fiercely loyal warrior who takes on a more prominent role in the sequel. Danai Gurira reprises her role as Okoye, the formidable general who continues to protect Wakanda with unwavering loyalty.

    Ryan Coogler, who also directed the original Black Panther, returns to helm Wakanda Forever, and his visual storytelling remains impressive. The film showcases the rich culture and traditions of Wakanda, with cinematography that captures the beauty of the nation's landscapes and the intricate details of its architecture and technology.

    Despite its strengths, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever doesn't quite match the exceptional storytelling and emotional impact of its predecessor. The film's plot sometimes feels convoluted and predictable, and the emotional arc of its characters could have been more fully developed.

    Overall, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a visually appealing and emotionally resonant sequel that honors the legacy of its groundbreaking predecessor. While it may not quite reach the same level of brilliance, the film still offers a captivating story with room for growth.
