Black Panther 

 

I am very thankful Disney sent Family Friendly Gaming a reviewable copy of Black Panther on Blu-ray + Digital. This is also known as the Multi-Screen Edition. I was concerned about Black Panther for two reasons. The radical far left was falling over themselves concerning this movie. The second reason is the Black Panther comic books are known to be racists, controversial and highly divisive. Is any of that content found within this movie?

Sadly the answer to that question is a yes. Black Panther does contain some racist content. Black Panther encourages violence against white people. Black Panther treats white people like third class citizens. If that were not bad enough there is a huge plot hole in Black Panther. The story claims a meteorite filled with vibranium came to Earth. Five tribes fought over it until some vibranium infused plant gave someone enhanced strength and other senses. They then became technologically advance. See the hole?

If you missed the hole that is okay. Vibranium is described as the strongest metal in the universe, and a power source. How do you get from strong metal, and a power source to computers, programs, and other advanced technology? It does not connect for me. But then Stan Lee has not been known for real science in his stories. He is known for fantasy and giant plot holes.

Black Panther is very action packed. There are plenty of exciting scenes with battles. In many ways the Black Panther cheats when fighting others. He has a suit that makes himself bullet proof. Plus he can return kinect energy after absorbing enough blows. The main storyline in Black Panther is revenge. It is strange that such an "advanced" culture uses trial by combat (to the death or yielding) as a way of leadership transfer.

The issues families can have with Black Panther (on top of previously mentioned ones) are violence, blood, lack of attire, bad language, false gods, ancestors beliefs, contacting the dead, and more. Bonus content includes From Page to Screen, Deleted Scenes, Gag Reel, Crowning of a new King, The Warriors Within, The Hidden Kingdom Revealed, Wakanda Revealed, Sneak Peek at Ant Man and the Wasp, Marvel Studios the First Ten Years, and More.

Black Panther has a come home feel good moment where Wakanda finally decides to share their technology and help the rest of the world. Well with black people at least. Black Panther reminds me of the Tower of Babel in this regard. The whole debate of bringing in others and accepting their problems was an interesting one. How they changed so quickly was a bit too convenient. African themes are found throughout Black Panther.
