Well, it doesn't feel like an MCU movie. It takes itself way too seriously to be part of the MCU. The since of humor that made Guardians of the Galaxy, Spiderman, Thor and most of the other Marvel movies so fun to watch over the years has been stripped away.
And so has the spy movie fun with the Captain America movies, but then, those didn't take themselves nearly as seriously either, even when they had a message to convey. The Black Widow could still kind of make fun of the lead. I got the sense that there was absolutely no way the Black Panther could be the butt of a joke. Somehow he was beyond even that.
And people kept saying that this was the best Marvel movie...why? Honestly I have no idea.
The action wasn't even really there to support that. Two fights in a river by a waterfall. A kind of climatic battle that served to be the best part in a movie that took itself all too seriously. A car chase. All were totally uninspired.
There wasn't much new there. The car chase we had seen before. The climatic battle at the end was just...meh. And the two fights by the waterfall didn't really deliver.
And all while being mostly void of humor.
We had Letitia Wright delivering the only grin worthy lines. This isn't overstating things either. She was very literally the only smiles in the entire movie.
We had Martin Freeman there to...I guess...prove that he can do a better American accent than his Sherlock counterpart.
And then we had a movie that was trying to deliver a message that it wasn't entirely sure how to deliver or even sure what the message was...but whatever it was, it was strong enough where the audience wasn't allowed to laugh.
I don't care about the PC crap, comic books have always had a message, a moral, at least the mainstream ones. But I still wanted to be entertained.
