However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country.

Is Black Panther something that you should go see?
If you are a diehard Marvel/Superhero/Black Panther fan then the answer is pretty obvious. You should go and see this movie.
If you are getting a bit fed up with the constant superhero movies being released almost every other month then you may be tempted to give this one a skip. Before you make that decision you should take the following into account.
First of all the premise and location is completely different to anything we have seen before. Normally it is New York City or some other big city being destroyed, not this time. The casting itself is amazing, everyone in this movie is a superb and just on that alone it is worth watching. It also looks visually stunning.
So yes, you may be getting bored of the continuous repetition of the superhero story, but, Black Panther is far from the norm.
