After the events that took place in Captain America: Civil War, T’Challa returns home to take his place on the throne of Wakanda, a technologically advanced African nation. But when an old enemy re-emerges, T’Challa’s courage is put to the test, both as a ruler and as a Black Panther. He finds himself drawn into a conflict that threatens not only the fate of Wakanda, but that of the entire world …
Here is to my surprise (I resisted a bit seeing this film) a great story telling with a positive message of Africa. So it is to my surprise that this film has a positive message and an other view of Africa which by far is a beautiful country with their own set of problems that they are dealing with. There is no shortage of talent, including Forest Whitaker as the Black Panther’s mentor, Lupita Nyong’o as a free-spirited beauty, Andy Serkis as a nasty arms dealer, Martin Freeman as a CIA agent, Angela Bassett and Letitia Wright as the mother and sister. Wakanda is a Black universe, a world with a tapestry of the richest, sharpest colors and textures. Rachel Morrison’s beautiful cinematography and Ruth Carter’s costumes pop so vividly that they become almost tactile. The villain here wants to rule the world what else and the good guy, the king wants to be low-key but a women in his life thinks that Wakanda can help others and she has a plan of action. Here is a bit a change this comic super hero has women that are his body guards you will see here strong women that will actually fights. The suit of the black panther is actually cool with the gadget that his sister made and updated will keep him fighting while being safe. The film is like James bond into a Sci-fi Adventure , thriller combine with action sequences nor that they are anything wrong with that. Here is a film that will surprise you.
A film by David Moreau

Film adapted from the Franco-Belgian comic book of the same name, Seuls is a fantastic film aimed at a teenage audience.
Leila is a young teenager of sixteen, who has her share of problems. One morning like all the others, she wakes up at home, except that this time she is alone in the house. Surprised not to find her parents there, she goes through her neighborhood, then the city without finding a living soul. Not understanding how the city was emptied in one night, she continues her search, thinking she is the only survivor of an apocalypse, until she finally finds herself on four other youngsters with whom she will team up.
Ok here it is simple those are first time actors who has done well here and the casting is top. Yes an other apocalypse teenager film but this one is done à la French / Belgium and it has a couple of twist that you will not expect. I didn’t. Convincing yes and the special effect stand out just fine. It is good for the first run however at end it leaves it open for more which I hope they even step it more. Nice one watchable no doubt. The music builds the tension and the suspense in pumping though you veins.The director succeeded in maintaining a tension and an anguishing atmosphere throughout the film. If you have read the comic book I will recommend it big time. If you didn’t and you like this kind of film you will not be disappointed.
