The performer is always present in the movie in spirit.
Ryan Coogler's film beautifully honors the late actor.
The Black Panther sequel falls short from being an excellent film.
The film is very long, with extended scenes.
But Wakanda Forever is currently the greatest MCU blockbuster of the year.
The parallels are emotionally laden with remorse.
Wakanda Forever is best as a tribute to the memory and legacy of Chadwick.
As an entertaining movie, it's excellent.
As a self-contained story, it is a failure.
