When I walked into the cinema the queue to see the life of the people of Wakanda was mind blowing. I thought maybe it was another movie they all came to see, but it was Black Panther we all gathered to see and some for a second time.

The moment the movie started rolling I could tell the ones who had been here before, thanks to the light from the screen. They were the heads bending down and talking to the poor unfortunate new watchers what to expect, I was glad at that moment that none was by me.

I walked in alone to be entertained by a movie I already knew I was going to enjoy. And I did enjoy the movie for every surprise was new to me as I decided to stay away from spoilers.

Black Panther is the eighteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and it follows the way five African tribes used vibranium to advance their lives beyond that of the outside world.
The plot of the movie stems from the last time we say T’Chaka alive in Captain America: Civil War (2016). After his murder we get to dive into the life of T’Challa how he was busy trying to lead his people and keep the life of Wakanda a secret.

The movie plot also explores the life of being a King/Black Panther of Wakanda and how his father (T’Chaka) covered up a murder and a grave mistake that in turn turned to Killmonger. The movie then explores the decision of the people of Wakanda to remain secret and keep their technological advancement or go to the world and try to share their knowledge.

Is there a bad guy in this story?

The movie plot was about the view of two people and a near civil war in Wakanda. The first view is from T’Challa who wanted to continue in the ways of old and keep Wakanda and everything about it a secret. Then there is Killmonger who wanted to be a tyrant leader and help the black race from the oppression of the white.
One way both had a point on what they believed the future should be, and both decided to face each other to determine the path Wakanda will play in that future.

The movie features many technological advancements that will make Iron Man sit back and cry. Another great thing about seeing this movie is the awesome effects and cinematography that will make you captivated at how well the makers wanted you to see this movie.
The high part of the movie is the women, they were not just back story or sidelined followers, one was the general and another was the head of their technological advancement, a very much young lady and sister to T’Challa.

The movie is something to appreciate and something worth seeing again.
As the movie makes over a billion in the box office I believe Hollywood now knows that there is a place for movies which will feature characters from different races playing an intended role for them.
