Black Panther Movie Review

Black Panther Movie Review

After becoming involved in the clashes between the martial factions of the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), now finds himself fighting for his crown. After the death of his father in a terrorist attack, he returns to his homeland Wakanda to face a series of adversaries which threatens his life as well as his country.

Black Panther Movie Review

The film begins in 1992 in Oakland with a visit to an apartment from the king of Wakanda. What plays out there sets the film in motion. Then we are transferred to the present time, where  T’Challa is about to undertake a bittersweet ritual before being crowned the new king of Wakanda. This crown means becoming the Black Panther, who protects Wakanda with heightened senses and abilities and an awesome superhero suit.

Black Panther Movie Review

Wakanda is known to be the poorest country in the world. But the truth is it has been hiding behind a cloak of deception for years. In reality Wakanda has been able to maintain a rural cover co-existing with incredible technology built on vibranium. It is a unique metal explained in the prologue before the opening credits.

Black Panther Movie Review

Enters Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), who, as his name suggests, kills a lot of people, all American attitude and entitlement. He wants everything Wakanda has and will stop at nothing to get it even if this means to kill T’Challa. Killmonger thinks Wakanda should use vibranium to trigger a race revolution and become the world’s master. He has his own personal reasons, which go beyond the political.

Black Panther Movie Review

Women are present and essential in the movie. General Okoye (Danai Gurira) is the tough-as-nails lead warrior defending the throne, while T’Challa’s little sister Shuri (Letitia Wright) is a brilliant scientist who supports Black Panther with the toys she comes up with in her lab. Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), is a wise worrier. She is T’Challa’s lover and partner in battle.

Black Panther Movie Review

Here you go, you’ve got a deadly game of thrones movie with thrilling spies. A Marvel superhero movie which  means enormous battles and chaotic fighting. But the movie doesn’t get lost in these scenes. Computer-generated effects make some of the scenes look like a video game, with people in high-tech suits fighting in the air (Oh that’s a movie to watch in 3D goggles). Yet there’s beauty: the costuming, the set pieces, and the presence of beautiful natural rich African culture. Also characters die but not in the bloodless, cartoonish ways known in movies like this.

Black Panther Movie Review

Black Panther brings contemporary storyline without the excepted answers superhero movies often deliver with exciting action together in an outstanding movie that can please different types of viewers. In addition it sheds light on a current question: What is human’s role in the world today? T’Challa lays it out: “The wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers.” It makes you wonder, is he addressing Trump or world leaders in general?

Black Panther Movie Review

The movie also depicts a modern utopia on different levels. First, not only it presents a black super hero as the savior, but also hope and the high opportunities in this movie are offered by people often wronged in real life and not well represented on screen. Second, it suggests the perfect image of future where man enjoys an environment friendly high tech life style. The land of Wakanda illustrates Planet Earth as a place where modern technology serves man evolution and also preserves nature.

Black Panther Movie Review

Black Panther movie combines superhero movie qualities from a thrilling story, impactful computer-generated scenes, with contemporary neat plot, besides it is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film starring a black superhero. For all those reasons it is certainly remarkable. This film is a testament to excellence that cannot be denied.

Free Masks to be Distributed to Dustmen

Dustmen

Since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, many people had been affected by repercussions of the virus. For instance, have you guys put into mind that there are dustmen still roaming the streets trying to help clean areas for us as well as trying to make a living for themselves?

These poor people’s job is to stay in the streets, in the open air, where it could be very easy for them to catch the virus due to the lack of care and protection they have been given.

Which is why Mahmoud Shaarawy, Egypt’s Local Development Minister, has stressed this morning on how much of a necessity it is to provide these dustmen as well as blue-collared workers with the essential protective gear such as masks and gloves to help contain spreading the Coronavirus and to help keep these workers safe.

A new set of safety instructions as well as a major protective plan that will be directed by our President Abdel Fattah el Sisi is set in motion to take place, added the Minister.

Companies and Contractors have been demanded by governors to apply serious safety precautions and most importantly the correct care requirements for fellow workers as well as trying to raise awareness for the coronavirus.

Shaarawy has also stressed on how crucial it is to follow up with both the contractors and companies to make sure they are implementing the precautionary measures they are forced to apply on the workers. Also, they need to follow up on sterilizing as well as purifying the work sites they are asked to work in on a daily basis in hopes of achieving maximum protection and safety for the workers.

Thankfully, President Sisi has been kind and gracious enough to order protective masks to be distributed amongst all dustmen, janitors, and workers in need of protection to help keep them safe, thus our entire country in good hands.

So far, 139 new cases of the Coronavirus have been found. As for the death toll, it was announced last night that 15 new deaths have occurred. Egypt’s Ministry of Health has broadcasted that the number of infected Egyptian citizens are up to 1,699 and the death rate to 118 people. On the bright side, 348 people have recovered so far after testing positive for the virus.
