My news feed is flooded with Black Panther reviews saying how great the film is, even going as far as to say it is the best Marvel film ever. It is great, don’t get me wrong but there were some things holding it back.
his character was a little stereotypical in certain areas. Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis both brought a lot to the film, providing a nice layer of humour the film seemed to be lacking in parts. The film definitely could have benefited from more Serkis (explaining why would mean spoilers).
Another issue was the lighting which was inconsistent and definitely too dark at times. Most movies (all movies) don’t have pitch black night scenes. They use a slightly different tone to make it more visible, but Black Panther doesn’t do that which takes away from the experience. While some moments of the lighting was breathtaking, especially on the women of the film, others left me disappointed which isn’t good enough for this type of movie.
