Black Panther stands out in the superhero genre because it never shies away from themes that remain in conflict today. Racism, oppression, feminism, politics– it’s all here. It focuses on all three and uses them to bolster its narrative strength. With its complex villain also fueling a liberal-versus-conservative aspect to the film, it reminds audiences of where the American people are in terms of its culture. Passionately written, exceptionally acted and politically aware, this makes up an amazing story while also containing the beautiful visuals, good humor and likeable entertainment fans have come to expect. [Star Rating: 4/4]
