All that said, the movie does work on a purely surface level. As an American with uniquely American baggage, Michael B. Jordan's character might not play as well overseas, but the rest of them are entertaining and interesting within the standard superhero narrative.

oh yeah. it is a fun, slick ass action movie without any consideration of subtext. I just wish they could have had an after credits scene of Billy Zane in his Phantom outfit showing up in Wakanda :-P :wink:





edit:

ok, after thinking about this for a bit I have come to the conclusion that an opening scene of the Black Panther beating the shit out of the Phantom, calling him out for being just another white overseer and telling him to get the fuck off his continent would be the best way to go :D

Chinese people did not care for all the blackness in Black Panther:

Because I am a libcuck snowflake, I got a little moist-eyed during this speech where the entirely black cast of Black Panther (plus Andy Serkis) accepts the SAG award for Best Ensemble:



Also, AMC theaters will be screening Black Panther for free all February:
