However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war. Written by
A part of this film was set in Oakland, California, the city in which Ryan Coogler grew up in; it is also the city where his first feature length movie Fruitvale Station (2013) was based. See more »
Since Wakanda is a landlocked African country hidden due to their technological advancements and isolated from the rest of the world, and since it was implied that Erik Killmonger, despite having Wakandan heritage, was raised in the United States for most of his life; it doesn't make sense how Killmonger could have perfectly navigated his way to Wakanda by airplane - from South Korea, no less. Wakanda is known to the rest of the world as an isolated poor third world country, only the technologically advanced parts of the country are hidden. The BBC news at the start of the movie mentions Wakanda and the King of Wakanda was killed at the UN in Captain America Civil War. Also, recall that Killmonger spent plenty of time with Ulysses Klaue, who had successfully been in and out of Wakanda, combined with the fact that he knew quite a bit about Wakanda from his father N'Jobu. Also, since Killmonger was a highly qualified Navy Seal, and later a CIA Special activities division, he would have had extensive training, and experience, in navigation, piloting, etc. Special Ops Soldiers(Navy Seals, CIA Special Activities Division, etc.)get trained extensively in navigation, so they would be able to make their way to any location, no matter where they are dropped/placed. As for making his way to Wakanda/Africa with a Cessna prop plane, it is highly possible to do that(by going west through China, India etc.), but it would mean multiple stops for refueling.(Klaue's body would have been pretty ripe by the time he made it.)

Tell me a story, baba.
What story, my son?
Millions of years ago, a meteorite made of vibranium, the strongest substance in the universe, struck the continent of Africa, affecting the plant life around it. And when the time of men came, five tribes settled on it and called it Wakanda. The tribes lived in constant war with each other, until a warrior shaman received a vision from the panther goddess Bast, who led him to the Heart-Shaped Herb, a plant that granted him ...

I'll never get back those 2 hrs... read reviews and not hype!
The only good thing is I didn't take my grandkids to this... I'd never get them to another movie.. shallow characters, out of context one liners. Little or no storyline and talk about stereotypes!!! Lion King meets Masai and a bad date. I started laughing 10 minutes in and felt bad for those expecting a fun entertaining hero movie.. nope. The political drop ins missed their mark sad just sounded Hollywood foolish!!! Disappointed
