We watched Wakanda Forever over the past weekend and I have to say, I was disappointed. There was just too much happening, too much trying to get crammed into the movie. You could see the bones of a really good movie in there, something about grief and the terrible decisions it can drive you to, maybe.
It seems like the studio must have got their fingers into the movie, though, jamming in extra plot threads as setup for future movies and TV shows. Except none of that was compelling or interesting. The CIA plotline and the Riri plotline just muddied up the film, obscuring whatever deeper message it might have offered.
I think about the best thing I can say for Wakanda Forever is that the next movie, if there is one, should be more interesting, since they seemed to have set it up for M’Baku to be king and possibly also Black Panther.
