Storyline

After the events of Captain America: Civil War, Prince T'Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new king. 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 Editor

The logical thing would have been to keep him sedated, tell him nothing and wake him up outside of Wakanda. See more »

Black Panther is a pretty solid movie
30 May 2021 | by Venomage03See all my reviews

The world building is fantastic. The villain is also very good. The acting is very good. The story is okay. In some parts the movie has terrible CGI.
