Buckle up boys and girls because this review is going all out. I deserve to let my anger out because of what this film did to me. I have never gotten out of a film with such a massive headache before, and Aquaman did that to me. I mean I hated Pacific Rim 2, but that film was just boring and flat. Aquaman is just a mess, a huge stinking mess. I don’t know when DC will get it. It is so sad. Because I am huge fan of DC’s comics. They have so much content, flavor, and character when compared to Marvel’s comic books in my opinion. Their world has so much potential. Not only that, I actually like Aquaman’s comics. I know he has become somewhat of a meme over the past few years. But I thoroughly enjoy his comics. It doesn’t stop there, Black Manta is one of my favorite villains in comic books ever. The way they portrayed him in this film was such a shame. It makes me so sad. I think the only solution for DC is to stick with independent films that don’t all tie into one “universe” like the MCU. Which is why I am hopeful for the new Joker film. They need to scrap everything, and just get experimental. Do something different. For example, Man of Steel, although it has many flaws, it was still trying to do something different. Now they are just trying to follow the same formula that Marvel is doing. And its all just so sad. Anyway, let’s get into this stinker.
Black Panther is very important film in the world of Blockbuster films. It marks an important step in diversifying the mainstream film industry with a more multicultural taste. Obviously this film isn't the first film to have a person of color as the main superhero. The Blade Series and Hancock are some to mention. However, what Black Panther proves is that being multicultural can succeed at the box office. It shows that its not about where the character is from, because if you make a good film (well..) then you are able to get the support needed for that. Hopefully this will bring out more variety in Blockbuster films so that we are able to see more interesting characters and backgrounds in these movies. Now. Although I do think this film is very important in many regards, I actually do not think it is a good film. It has taken me around three days to muster up the courage to write this review because of the overwhelming amount of praise this film is getting, along with the overwhelming hate anyone is getting for not liking this film. I will get to the response of the audience at the end of this review, but for now, I just want to talk about why I personally did not like this film.
With the reboot of the spider-man universe for the third time, people are wondering whether Marvel's attempt will hit its mark or flop like the previous iteration did. Based so far on the general public opinion, Marvel has been able to cater to what the fans wanted and have been able to deliver a profitable success. However, I am a little bit disappointed with the end result and felt like a huge potential was wasted with this film. Here is why:
