Blu-ray Review: Black Panther

Synopsis:
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Thoughts:
Black Panther took the film industry by storm when it was released earlier this year. Between the overwhelmingly positive critic and audience reviews and the booming box office numbers, the film cemented its legacy as one of the most important films of our generation as it showcased a culture that studios rarely bring to the big screen. The release was a landmark event and now with the film making its way to home entertainment we can go back and appreciate the hard work and commitment all over again. 

The special features are loaded with never before seen footage and content that explores the lore of Black Panther and the nation of Wakanda. For any fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe this is a must have as it shows how Black Panther fits into the spectacle that is Avengers: Infinity War.

Some notable special features include The Warriors Within which shines a spotlight on the prominent roles of the women in the film, acknowledging the work of the actors and what inspired them to take the role. From Page to Screen: A Roundtable Discussion features comic writer Christopher Priest, comic writer Don McGregor, Black Panther executive producer Nate Moore, comic writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, Black Panther writer Joe Robert Cole, and Black Panther co-writer/director Ryan Coogler discussing the character’s history in the comics, his emergence past and present, Chadwick Boseman’s performance, and so much more.

There’s tons of content on the blu-ray to keep Marvel fans occupied for hours while the film itself is an overall great time and demands multiple viewings.
