Good review chaps - interesting to here POV’s from people that enjoyed the movie. I personally didn’t enjoy it at all (I found the storyline/main conflict in the film to be too frustrating and just couldn’t get past that - despite other stuff in the film being very good) - but I enjoyed all your takes.
Thanks for keeping an open mind, Imran. What was the frustration about the main story for you?
There were a few minor plot points, but mostly tt felt to me like the main conflict of the film could have been avoided through Namor and Shuri just having a decent conversation - now true you could say that about a lot of films, but usually one side of that conversation is a maniacal warlord (like a Thanos) - but here you had two pretty level-headed characters, who just want the best for their people (bar Namor wanting to start a war with the entire planet - which again didn’t really make much sense to me considering he just wants his people to stay safe and hidden).
They obviously reach their agreement at the end - and really not much has changed in the intervening time bar both sides suffering a lot of casualties. It’s a comic-book movie of course so I’m probably being a bit too hypercritical, but from a Black Panther movie and a Ryan Coogler movie I guess I just expected something… more/different?
