(2022) (Letitia Wright, Tenoch Huerta) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Superhero Action: The queen and princess of a powerful African nation must contend with a previously unknown undersea nation that threatens to wage war with them if they don't agree to attack the rest of the world.
It's been a year since the death of King T'Challa (who also served as Wakanda's superhero protector, the Black Panther), with both his mother, Queen Ramonda (ANGELA BASSETT), and younger sister, Shur (LETITIA WRIGHT), still grieving but in different ways. While Ramonda has followed the rituals of their ancestors, Shur has buried herself in her tech work. But they and their general warrior, Okoye (DANAI GURIRA), must contend with outside countries trying to get their hands on their abundant supply of the powerful mineral Vibranium that's the source of their formidable weaponry.
That stems from a device invented by MIT student Riri Williams (DOMINQUE THORNE) that's now been altered by others to find Vibranium deep in the ocean. Such searching has resulted in defensive attacks by a previously unknown underwater people known as the Talokans led by King Namor (TENOCH HUERTA). He wants to form an alliance with Ramonda and her nation against the rest of the world, while demanding that she find Riri and deliver her to him.
Ramonda refuses, and when he abducts the girl and Shur, Ramonda turns to outside help from CIA agent Everett K. Ross (MARTIN FREEMAN) and former Wakandan Nakia (LUPITA NYONG'O), all while preparing for possible war -- alongside tribal leader M'Baku (WINSTON DUKE) and other Wakandans -- with Namor and his nation.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're fans of the original "Black Panther" movie they probably will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For sequences of strong violence, action, and some language.
