      @Carlos Eduardo because they’ve been culturally suppressed like all cultures that stagnate and are surrounded by foes. Third world countries never had a chance to become more advanced. A people like Wakandans however have been isolated and delved into technology. Their culture should have democratic elections, thereby freeing it’s citizens from the tyranny of being ruled by a single man, and traditions like “trial by combat” are the traditions of warlike peoples from around the world over. Violence cannot be promoted in a society that says it only cares for peace. So it’s both culturally disingenuous and made the Wakandans into hypocrites.

      @MrLuckless I'm not even mad or anything just pointing incompetency has no gender especially if it's out of someone's element. It's like hiring Michael Bay to write a movie without mindless action and explosions and then being disappointed when he expectedly fails at it and the movie sucks because that is the only thing he knows how to do.

      @Syndrome Normally I'd agree with you, but Disney-Marvel (or whoever is running it) is explicitly going out of their way to hire female writers to replace or undermine the male heroes of a franchise that has a primarily male audience. It has everything to do with gender because they are in no uncertain terms making it about gender. If it weren't, then there wouldn't have been such a concerted effort to do as I said above with all of their own characters.
      Don't get upset with me for pointing out the patterns that Disney-Marvel has made. So yes, both genders may have the ability to write good stories with interesting characters, however only one is getting work at Disney-Marvel and that one in particular is feeling rather vindictive over imaginary privilege.

      @Agiks F. It makes me glad to find comments like this after a sea of endless, senseless praise. This is why I don't trust people's claims when it comes to entertainment anymore. People criticize movies like Eternals for having a messy plot but then go on to praise the shit out of No Way Home when it's plot is just as if not even more so ridiculous and contrived asf. Not to mention filled with quite a bit of character assassination largely involving the villains, Tobey, Andrew, and especially Dr. Strange who for the entire film was just a plot device. I don't understand how people can even feel for the nostalgia and whatnot when the movie's story doesn't support it in any way. It's like Platoon said, people will completely ignore the rules when it comes to the things they visually like to see. In this case Tobey, Andrew and a bunch of shoed in callbacks that add nothing.

      ​@The Little Platoon I want to admit that I didn't know that Black Panther 1 and 2 was a racist stereotype of indigenous tribes within Africa. I honestly thought they were just keeping in check with the comic book lore and TV show lore of The Black Panther. I honestly thought they were just sticking close to the actual OG lore of Black Panther with some creative liberties taken. I did not know they actually tried to base the fictional country of Wakanda in the fictional Universe of the Marvel series on the actual indigenous tribes within the real country of Africa! That is honestly really distasteful, disrespectful, foolish, and absolutely embarrassing. I'm actually ashamed that I even enjoyed the 1st movie back then. At least I know now and I will try to keep it in mind in the future. Thank you very much @TheLittlePlatoon for letting me know, I appreciate it a lot.😁👍💖☺️🌷🌺

    When the AI tells Rammonda that Shuri's kidnappers spoke "Maya" i almost bursted out laughing cause Maya isn't a single language it is a language family, it would be like getting captured by Russian mobsters and the AI says they spoke "Slavic".
    Perhaps the silly thing is that according to the producers, Namor and the Talokans speak Yucatec Maya that is the same as the Mayans who still live in the Yucatan peninsula, How an isolated civilization speaks the same way as natives who have been affected by outside influences?
    It also doesn't help Namor's actor Tenoch Huerta is basically Killmonger but Latino pontificating on how "dark-skinned" people have only been casted as Drug Dealers in American movies.

      @Syndrome and 80,000 years of human population growth stress the point that there are MULTIPLE survival strategies for a species. Ours involves communal living, seasonal planning, and tool use. Medicine is one of those tools.
      You really don't seem to understand that 'fittest' doesnt necessarily mean feats of strength. Is a fit man who abandons his child because it suffered damage in an animal attack going to pass on his genes? Not if he abandons the child!

Elektra was Asianized, that imbecile, Waititi, made a complete mockery out of our pantheon, Namor’s past is linked with Greek mythology and that got completely erased for some bullshit story that doesn’t make any sense…
      As others have pointed out though, the funny irony in all this, is how they have a Mexican sneak into another country from the water, without realising what they’re doing.

      @BlackLives OrBlackVotes He usually attacks the surface world in retaliation towards something done by them. Namor would have no reason to invade the surface world because an alien wiped out half of all life. Especially since half of his people would be gone, so his main priority would be helping Talokan recover. That’s going based on the assumption that Namor didn’t die during the Blip.

He attacked the surface for FAR LESS in the comics. No excuses. Shit writing and world building is shit. This movie is a completely crapfest.

    If I follow what you said correctly, Namor heared Shuri say she wants to burn the world down because her brother died. The writers want to use this as an argument for why he would think it is logical that Namor asks her to help him since he hates the world as well? Because that quite literally translates into "a loved one died of cancer therefore genocide."

      Eh, the 17th century world as a whole could wipe the floor with that;
      The second half of the 80 Years' War, & the French Wars of Religion- that had begun in the previous century, the 30 Years' War (which Churchill considered the closest thing to a world war, before the Great War- along with the later 7 Years' War); this included the Wars of the Three Kingdoms (which *_also_* included the *3* English Civil Wars- which even expanded into America for a hot minute with the Battle of the Severn, plus the concurrent events in Scotland & Ireland), the Anglo-Dutch Wars, the Franco-Spanish Wars, & the start of the Jacobite Rebellions - & **all** of that is not including all the conflicts *outside* of Great Britain & Central & Western Europe; whatever inter-kingdom conflicts were happening in the East, Africa, the Americas, & Asia- & I have no doubt it was *a lot*
      I'm not sure there was _a single year_ in the 17th Century where there was no conflict involving one or more major nations - & if I recall correctly, the 19th century was known as the Age of Revolution, so it seems like things were not much better 200 years on...

    This actually brings me back to the logic fail of the Winter Soldier show: "So... Wakanda didn't demand the US extradite their leader's assassin to face Wakandan justice. Falcon released said assassin, who subsequently escapes even US justice. Rather than lose their collective sh^^, end cooperation with all US agents, and demand both Falcon and Buckey be taken into custody; Wakanda instead makes a super suit for one of the *US* soldiers responsible; out of their exclusive strategic resource.

      Now that I think of it - for me, all the main ladies in original X-men trilogy are miscast and very underwhelming (beside Mystique). Rogue! Oh, my beloved Rogue. I could never stand her in the movies.

    I haven't watched this yet. Because phase 4 has the following formula: 1)Former Male hero now has a highly skilled female hero that outshines them or matches their skill set with none of the 'negative' traits of personality.
    2) Every significant female is strong and powerful.
    3) The villian has some sort of tragic back story that makes them less villainous.
    4) Gender, Sexuality, Non nuclear family structures, race is some woven into the naritive. Not all, but at least one or two of these.
    5) the female protagonists only significant flaw is the toxic men surrounding her.
    Most of the established heros by the end of phase 3 had earned their status. They had flaws that they had to overcome or minimize. Tony Stark started out egotistical and selfish. Even creating the arc reactor and iron man suits were self preservation. In End game his motivations are still slightly selfish, but his preservation and motives now extend to his daughter. An argument could be made that he sacrificed himself willingly to ensure she lived. The rest of the Universe was just an added bonus.

      @B.C. Royce Art as someone who reads quite a lot of fantasy, it's very important to just stay far the fuck away from a book once you catch that scent.
      And it's not like you CAN'T have a story where PROPER feminism is actually appropriate. There's a series that I very much like called Beneath the Dragon Eye Moons. It's about a girl that's reincarnated into another world, and in this more primitive society women have it pretty shit, almost NO rights. BUT while the main character is understandably pissed about this, especially as she IS a girl, she also just has to accept she can't change it and just opts to live the best life she can. The books aren't preachy, they don't DENIGRATE men either. There are a LOT of really good male role models in this series.
      Honestly this series is a great example of how to write a feminist character CORRECTLY. That is to have a CLEAR injustice and have her seek out a way to solve it, but also not having that BE the story. This story is NOT about her changing the system, nearly the entire series she's working WITHIN the system and the sexism is just the occasional "for fuck's sake, just let me withdraw my money". The main character also isn't a Mary Sue at all, she has her niche and she's great at THAT, but outside that niche she's basically a chump and she knows it. It's actually a great series, I recommend it. It's lengthy, there's like 7 or 8 books and counting, but it's consistently well written throughout.

      I’ve actually unwittingly read a few sci fi/fantasy books from feminist authors recently. What I have noticed is a trend of narcissism. In all their books the women are physically and intellectually superior to men, yet they tend to be held back or submissive to the “toxic” make power structure.
      When reading you get the feeling that the author believes that if it weren’t for men then women and the entire earth would be this perfect utopia. It’s actually hard to finish reading these books because every interaction between man and woman is the same formula (he’s evil, shes virtuous, she’s stronger and smarter, yet she acts like a slave to the male power structure of society,) there’s a lot more in leaving out but when you’re aware of it you see these writers SUCK and are promoted/hired based on pushing this agenda. Same with these movies.

    The scuba suits thing was actually set up. It was a callback to the earlier scene where the Americans were using them, and Namor killed them. So, normally they wouldn't have equipment to take Shuri to their underwater city, but because they happened to kill two Americans with those suits, Namor could let her use one of them.

    It was a quick scene, but I believe Queen Ramunda (potentially) dies due to Michonne ( who we've seen doesn't like using Shuri's tech ) uses old fashioned tried and true chest compressions on her mother vs. Shuri placing the wakandan defibrillators on Riri. Nikea? Finnally touches her bracelet to the queen's To check her vitals but it's too late and Riri revives. Touching upon the failure of rescue attempts and crisis of decision making from the opening of the movie... It's also never addressed in the movie, ( so much drama left unexplored) but Michonne finally learns from her mistake when using the Midnight Angel weapon at the end of her arc.

      The resuscitation scene felt weird because...you're supposed to free the drowning victim's nose and mouth from the excess water by tilting their face to the side and keeping their mouth open. It's even recommended to perform a Heimlich maneuver to remove water from their lungs and respiratory tract (and given that Riri started coughing up water after defibrillation, there WAS water in their lungs and mouth). But Okoye went straight to doing CPR on Ramunda without clearing her respiratory tract first (Riri was supposed to be dead too, tbh). This is why I didn't find the scene tragic because I felt like Ramunda's death was totally preventable, the plot just decided she should die for the drama.

Doing this can damage their neck. Standing up while talking to short people also makes them feel threatened and unsafe so kneeling down not only prevents them from damaging their necks but also makes them feel more safe. Not doing this means you don't respect short people, you're mocking their disability, you're looking down on them and that's ableist, so be the bigger man and kneel.

    Good review. I haven't watched the movie, but I think Namor counts as a Maya and not an Aztec if I'm not mistaken. Also, the term Hispanic certainly includes the Spanish, as it comes from the Roman term Hispania (used to denote the Iberian peninsula)

      It doesn't matter. The Maya were almost as horrible as the Aztecs. In fact, the first recorded contact between a Maya people and the Spanish was when shipwrecked sailors were washed ashore and subsequently sacrificed. Only two survivors managed to escape.
      The maya culture was pretty warlike and oppressive, much like the Aztecs. They were finally conquered, much like the Aztecs, when the small group of Conquistadors gathered a host of other allied native tribes that were tired of Mayan bullshit.
      Ofc, they got "colonizer bullshit" instead, but it's not like the Maya were apart of some prosperous, innocent, peace-loving utopia. I'm not saying these deserved being brutally repressed by the Spanish, but it's not like they were innocent here. The only difference was the scale of power being wielded, not the morals of the one wielding them.
      The bit about 'hispanics' is mostly to point out the delusional hypocrisies of the woke mob. They can't separate the fact that many people in "the global south" identity as white on account of them... being white. There was a large amount of Europeans that settled in South and Central America... and not just during the times of colonial rule. Whenever bad shit was happening in Europe, more Europeans jumped ship for the Americas. Fast forward a few generations (and centuries), and you have white hispanics growing up in under developed countries and identifying with the local cultures. Many of them make their way into America as well.
      In the minds of hte delusional woke mob, these people are both "oppressor" and "oppressed" at the same time. They can't comprehend this dichotomy. White people = evil. Brown people = good. "White Hispanic" is a "brown/white and good/evil" person. It ruins both their jargon and world view, so obviously it's a problem of racism and not their own idiocy.

    Namor's mutation was the ankle wings. He would've been born with them regardless if his mother drank the blue juice or not. He got it second hand from his mother in utero. Not a full dose. So no gills. Him being a mutant gave his skin water absorption as a response to the herb instead. That just gave him water based abilities, probably due to the fact the herb was growing underwater. Wakandas was not and it was a completely different color. I assumed this was why it gave super strength and agility instead of Aquaman powers. Also since they're doing Xmen now, random ppl are going to be born with exploding stomachs, heat vision, and ice powers, and there will be NO logical explanation for it. If Namor makes no sense to you, I would advise jumping ship now because it's only going to get more ridiculous.

      At the least he should edit. The fact that he gives a damn about plot continuity and logistics implies that he could write circles around the current hires.

    So this is what I took away from the film..the Mayans consumed the flower while sick so I thought it was implied that the illness combined w taking the flower caused them to transform and I don’t remember namor’s dad being transformed so I think namor was still technically half human which made him different from everyone else.

      And I don’t think namor wanted to off iron heart but he gave that ultimatum to end up having the girl in his possession as a prisoner to build more technology for their society

    I haven't read the Black Panther comics so I don't know if Shuri ever becomes black panther in the comics or not. But as far as MCU is concerned, I really feel Nakia or Okoye would have been better choices.

    I noticed that Namor is called Kukulcan, the Mayan serpent god of the sky, but he and his people are Aztec so he should be referred to by the Aztec version of this god Quetzalcoatl. That's like saying you are Jupiter the god of the Roman's but referring to yourself as the Greek name Zeus.

    In order to flood Queen Ramonda's thrown which is high up on the Bashenga mountain above the statue of the panther goddess Bast, which Wakanda is already 1100 feet above sea level and landlocked with no river channels (proven in previous MCU movies shown in maps) with only the lake Turkana it shares with Kenya, all of Wakanda would have had to be submerged; effectively killing all its inhabitants. Not to mention there's not enough gallons of water in Lake Turkana to pull that off anyway.

    @The little platoon The reason Namor has wings on his legs is because his a mutant. This would have been explained in the movie clearly as to how some Atlanteans mutated and while others used Atlantean magic and adapted to the marine environment, rather than using the heart shape herb McGuffin which they butchered how it works in the first movie.

    The solve I would have for the same plant giving slightly different powers would be that one was grown in a dessert and one was basically grown in the water. If they derived their fuel for growth from the biological matter they were exposed to. one got it's supply from decaying mammal and the other largely from fish or other oceanic life.

    What I noticed as I watched was that Namor rly didnt know they weren’t going to turn her in, necessarily when they showed up. They were running to get away from the cops and so he attacked with a water grenade. If I was a helper before, I surely would put up resistance now. As the fleeing could have been part of the kidnap plan. :/ they were just winning her over diplomatically. I think namor screwed his own plan up by attacking first, again, not using in-movie logic but meta logic that shuri and dora are good and will NOT kidnap the child.

    I watched the movie a few days ago and i saw your first part of the review before i did,after i finished the movie though i felt conflicted,it had potential and the main character is the best part of the movie,but overall the movie is very mid,not good,not bad, just a movie that people will forget about in a few months

    When I first saw one of your reviews last week, I immediately suspected, based on the quality and style of your arguments, that we come from a similar academic background. Looks like I was right - glad to see not all other philosophers/ethicists have been assimilated into the Collective just yet! I've binge watched a couple of dozen of your videos, and look forward to many more - thanks!

    Great video explaining why this film should not receive any awards except for maybe one or two actors who gave great performances despite the film being awful. We already know that it will be praised as the greatest film ever and be given awards for areas where it is appalling.

    It is possible that the deal for wakanda to launch a first strike was a rouse to make the whole world focus on wakanda, and forget Atlantis even existed. But there was never a scene setting up the possibility, so at best, the audience has to come to the conclusion by themselves without any proof

    I’m a black American man that loves all aspects of film making and I gotta say I didn’t really enjoy the first one too much, there was plenty I liked about it but a lot of issues with the writing in my opinion and while I haven’t seen the sequel yet I’m not really looking forward to being amazed in any way I hope I’m wrong tho because I love the cast and director Ryan Coogler.

    The questions about Namor are easy. He's half human, half sea person. The herb turned all who drank it into sea people more or less. However, he never drank it and was exposed to it in his development. He gained the benefit of it's powers without transforming into a sea person.
    In addition to that Namor is a mutant, which is one of the reasons he is so powerful in comics. He's got the ability to survive on land unaided like a human, he has the strength, durability, and underwater breathing abilities of a sea person and he is even stronger than that and able to fly with his mutation.
