Ear Hustle 411 had the privilege and honor of attending the weekend debut of the highly anticipated and long awaited “Black Panther” at the Icon Theater in Chicago, IL. This was a sold out event for the “Forever Hope Agency” Fundraiser.
The movie was directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige and David J. Grant all African Americans, through Marvel Studios.
The movie was more than I could imagine. It was mind blowing and kept you captivated from beginning to end. Each scene was more incredible than the scene before. The costumes were designed with pristine perfection and the sound effects were magnificent.
The subliminal messages were impactful, Poignant and rousing. The actors and actresses were dipped in pure melanin and gave the big screen a majestic vision of pure loveliness.
The action packed film was stimulating to say the least; it kept you glued to the screen in hopes that you didn’t miss anything.
This star studded movie had some of Hollywood greats as well as some new comers that made a huge impact. Chadwick Boseman blew us away in his role as “Black Panther” this role was made specifically for him, he played this role down to a Tee.
Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger was equally incredible in his role. He made you mad, he made you laugh but he made you believe him and feel his pain.
Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia was the perfect choice. This Hollywood Grammy Award winner and beauty took that role and made it her own. She was astounding. Angela Bassett played the Role of Ramonda “Black Panthers Mother” She is an amazing actress. She showed you grace, pain, love and strength.
Andy Serkis as “Klaw” played the perfect villain. He definitely did his part to make you hate him. Martin Freeman made you fall in love with him as his role as Everett K. Ross.
Danai Gurira as “Okoye”, Florence Kasumba as “Ayo” and Sydelle Noel as Xoliswa were super bad chicks, their athletic ability and performance was stellar.
Letitia Wright as “Shuri”, played the baby sister of “Black Panther” she was the brains behind a lot of the technology. She was smart and incredibly funny. John Kani as T’ Chaka was the father of Black Panther. He was a strong soul who tried to protect his people the best way he knew how.
Winston Duke, Forest Whitaker, Atandwa Kani, Isaah De Bankole and Sterling K Brown as “N’ jobu” all gave immaculate performances and showed the world that black men are Strong, Fierce, Passionate and incredibly loyal to that which they love.
