It's heart is full to bursting, but it's a real mess.
As a follow on from the first film it's ok and as an exploration of post colonialist societies it's great, but under-used characters, too many plotlines, and some shonky ideas and effects really bring this down.

As the sun slips down towards the waves on Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we are returning to Wakanda after the passing of their King and protector T’Challa; The Black Panther, in time to witness the rise of a new hero. We are also popping down below said waves to Talokan, the MCU’s take on Atlantis where we meet their King and Protector Namor. Is this film the triumphant, heartfelt follow-up to the first Black Panther, or is the final cinematic outing for #phase4 a bit of a wet fish?
Jill, Dion and Quinny are our trio of reviewers who fully acknowledge their distance from the cultural background and significance of the peoples explored in this film.
Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M’Baku, Okoye and the Dora Milaje fight to protect their nation 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 Nakia and Everett Ross to forge a new path for their beloved kingdom.
