What Is Wakanda Forever About?
Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M'Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (Marija Abney) fight to protect the kingdom of Wakanda from intervening world powers in the wake of King T'Challa's death.
As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia and Everett Ross and forge a new path for their nation.
At the dawn of King T'Challa's death, invading forces from around the world target Wakanda's vibranium. Unleashing chaos, it is the duty of Shuri, M'Baku, Nakia and Okoye to defend the nation.
Especially when a mysterious Mexican civilization emerges from the depths of the sea.
Rotten Tomatoes reports an approval rating of 84% based on 414 reviews. However, the audience loved the movie just a little bit more. They have given Wakanda Forever an Audience Score of 94% based on over 10,000 ratings.
On IMDB.com, the rating currently stands at an average of 7.2 from over 132K users. Interestingly, that is slightly less than the original Black Panther movie which has a rating of 7.3.
On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 67 out of 100, based on 62 critics, indicating “generally favourable reviews”.
Overall the movie was well received, with many praising Angela Bassett for her standout performance. However, others have pointed out that this movie struggles under the weight of expectations.
That said, it is a fitting tribute to the legacy of Chadwick Boseman, and Ryan Coogler did a great job considering some of the limitations he faced when making it.
