I'm not into comics or sci-fi. It was okay. I wish this had come out when my kids were small. Oh well.. they had Meteor Man on VhS tape.

My son was on a punishment this weekend but I had to break my rule and let him participate in this BLACKOUT!!!! Punishment resumed 3 hours later but we weren't going to miss it and it was worth it! We might go again.

Excellent movie, and I pray it makes a billion dollars Aje Shaluga!!! this sends a message to hollywierd Nubian actors in a predominantly black film can carry a high grossing movie, with this making the kind of money it is, the actors will be able to negotiate getting paid big bucks for the franchise that is sure to follow. I am loving this going to see a second time. Next up the Orisha gods in a kick ass actions packed spiritual superhero flick!!! then remake gods of Egypt and put the original nubian descendants in that movie, next up the Vodu pantheon in some serious superhero spiritual action packed movie. There is so much stories to tell about our people, the actors all did a superb job and that melanated cast had me pinching my nipples all though the damn movie!!! Yassss its about damn time. We coming for Thor too don't think we don't know that's muthafukken Shango they ripped off, yes lawd!!!! Wonder Woman was based off the fierce Dahomey female warriors, let's tell these stories correct!!! our people are ready for it!!!!

@8:50 Yessss. I loved it. There were times a was really uncomfortable because I had to realize that we have those people in our culture and Michael. B made me see my brothers and understand that we need each other regardless of our differences.

I'll see it today because it's been sold out on all hours at majority of the movie theaters in my town.

@10:29 STFU colonizer!!!

Just an observation said...

This movie came at a great time with the right actors/actresses. I don't think I could imagine anyone else playing these characters. It's awesome to see new generations of talent getting their shine and making an impact on urban and black culture. It's just as great this movie is a hit in others countries.

I love it, can't wait for the dolls, costumes to wear on holloween and black history month. I can't wait for the collectibles, I hope the actors get a cut of that also and the franchise that is sure to follow this will give the actors a bigger paycheck to negotiate for the franchise and tv series and cartoon, children story books Yasss we are so here for it.
