I liked it a lot by capeshit standards and even marvel standards. Probably one of the best origin movies.
Personally, I found the movie very generic & cookie cutter. While the way it handled the tone was far better than the previous recent movies (Spiderman & Thor 3), it was also very cliche and predictable. Also they beat the political messaging a little too hard. I mean, there isn't anything wrong with being predictable, hence why I gave it the score I did. However, some cliches really bogged the movie down like the final battle sequence. There wasn't that many female warriors compared to the male ones yet halfway through they had equal forces before the ape/mountain tribe came. And that whole sequence took away from Black Panther vs. Killmonger which I felt was too short.
tbf in the comics they’re supposed to be an “ape” tribe compared to the panther tribe. The movie kind of swept that under the rug lol.
Yeah it seemed like they didn't want to correlate the two, hence why they refer to them as the tribe of the mountains, however they kind of half-assed it and made the whole thing with them kinda subtlety racist.
