Dylan’s review published on Letterboxd:
I was doing pretty well at not getting to emotional from this film but then the mid credit scene happened and it hit me like a brick and the tears just flowed.
Ryan Coogler did something really special here. He managed to respect our grieving hearts and continue on. This film is bold and filled with emotion. You can just feel the weight of Chadwick’s death through everything. It’s powerful. It’s the driving force of the film.
I am sure Letitia Wright wasn’t expecting to become a lead. But she did it. Very well. Anything with Shuri’s grief and loss is handled so well. Angela Bassett as well.
Namor is a pretty good villain. Tenoch played him very well. His motives stand firm and the interactions he has with Shuri are great.
And damn the music was incredible. Easily one of the best parts of the film. Ludwig out did himself again.
Where this film dosent always work for me is with its side characters. I didn’t like Riri Williams as much as I thought I would and The Ross storyline could’ve easily been cut out of the film.
Rest In Peace King. This film was clearly made for you and we’ll use it to remember you.
