Hmm, bit of a disappointment this one. The tribute to Chadwick Boseman was great and I appreciate the characters needed room to grieve, but the film was far too long for the story it had to tell. There’s a good movie in there, it just got swallowed up by negative points like the length, the fact that it’s trying to be Avatar, that the awesome science kid isn’t really given much to do.

I like that it’s a movie really driven by women, and that we have a new Black Panther, but it all just takes so long to get there. And it’s hard because the first movie was so good, that this one is just more of a disappointment for it.

Rating: 2 / 5
