Being a Marvel movie works against it: we dont get to see more of Wakanda because it has to follow the necessary act structure and hit all the right emotional notes (some humor, some sadness, some epicness, overall fun) and show cool battles with people in unobtainium suits with lasers and spaceships and it has to all wrap up neatly in 2 hours. It couldve had more Okoye in it, thats for sure.CorruptUser wrote:The only real problem with BP was that the plot of "hero fights villain with same powers" is starting to get a bit stale.
Its different from like, Guardians of the Galaxy 1, where everything in it seems specifically tailored to shine as a Marvel movie. It takes place in space and all the characters are aliens.
So we cant have both a deep, prolonged look into a virtual utopia and its relation to the real world, and cool wacky scifi action for nerds without compromising some characteristics of the film. Which is basically my main complaint: Blade Runner 2014738938489 was 3 whole hours, this movie could definitely had had that length and expanded on the Dora, Nakia's work, the differences within the tribes, life as a regular Wakandan, more backstory for the main chars not named T'Challa, etc. and I wouldve savored it all.
