Whem M'Baku challenges T'Challa he refers to the blessings of Hanuman, the monkey god. When the queen of King Ram (of India) was kidnapped a monkey was found in the forest with her scarf, indicating a route that pointed to the the King of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) as the kidnapper. By saving the queen the monkey was given the name Hanuman. Hanuman is not the name of an African monkey god, but of India. See more »

Did critics falsely over-rate this movie because of the mostly Black cast?
3 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

I told my daughter that I thought "Black Panther" was a typical average comic book movie.

She disagreed.

That's fine.

And that's the same about every movie or TV show out there. Some movies rub you the right way, and most movies just rub you wrong.

While watching "Black Panther" I truly forgot that 99% of the casts were African Americans. It's no big deal to me. It does't matter to me.

I only cared about the story. And the story was the typical lame comic book story. Actually, the story was kind of stupid. But no more stupid than "Captain America Civil War".

Yeah, a lot of things don't make sense. But it's fiction and comic book stuff. I don't let the little things bother me.

In conclusion, the critics over hyped this movie big time. It's not as horrible as some people say, and it is absolutely not anywhere near as great as some people say.

Do not compare this movie to The Dark Knight trilogy.

And please do not compare this movie to "The Godfather" or "Shawshank Redemption".

Don't even mention Black Panther in the same book as Godfather or Shawshank.

Black Panther is just another mediocre comic book movie with a fairly stupid plot.
