Everyone involved with Black Panther seems like they had a lot of fun making it, from the actors to director Ryan Coogler to the film’s costume and set designers, given free reign to create the fictional African country of Wakanda. (In Black Panther, Sub-Saharan Africa is exotic but not gross, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a film starting with that particular viewpoint.) The plot sets up benevolent young king T’Challah (Chadwick Boseman) against an unlikely villain, a revolutionary American soldier (Michael B. Jordan) who was raised without parents on the streets of Oakland. Large sections of Black Panther feel like a James Bond movie, from a shootout in a Korean casino to Black Panther’s little sister inventing gadgets in her basement lair. As Shuri, newcomer Letitia Wright gets a majority of the film’s best lines. (“Don’t scare me like that, colonizer,” she scolds the film’s lone useful white person.)
