Stealth is not only important for a superhero, but it is a way of life for whomever finds themselves to be the King of Wakanda.
T’ Challa must take over the throne in the midst of his fathers death. However, it soon becomes clear that the transition from prince to king is not a straightforward one, as his ruling is thrown into question when a long-lost relative comes to town.
Despite being under the Marvel label, this film has a very different imprint; focusing more on the dynamic of the plot and the subtleties of the storyline and less than on the all too familiar rampage of superhero action scenes.
Though the film does stand out from the usual Marvel protocol, some elements still remain, such as the quality and creativity of the cinematography which are of a superb standard.
It is clear from the outstanding reviews and appraisals for this film, both by critics and throughout this year’s awards season that the film has impressed audiences in their millions and continues to break both cultural and cinematic barriers alike.
