@amerikanina I was mixed on it! The combination of that & Spike's Malcolm X showed how much the scope of black masculinity in cinema has changed. But this last scene was great, & reminded me of BP:  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EeyNlzFdjtc 
And it made its high budget (I read highest for an African-American director?) back in the first weekend.
But just realized why BLACK PANTHER reminds me of CLEOPATRA (1963) & early STAR WARS. Ryan Coogler spent the extra money to make things REAL: Real sets, stunts, extras.
