The late Chadwick is best suited to play a character in an action movie. In this film, Chadwick plays Andre Davis, a successful NYPD officer like his father, who was murdered in the line of duty when Davis was 13 years old. Davis is an expert at hunting down ‘police killers’, i.e. criminals who intentionally or do not injure or kill police officers.

Once, two criminals tried to steal 30 kg of cocaine, but instead they found 300 kg of cocaine. However, the police came in and they were only able to bring 50 kilograms to Manhattan. On the run, one of the criminals shot and killed the policeman.

Therefore, Andre and drug detective Frankie Burns (Sienna Miller) are sent to join this case. However, they got into a scuffle with the FBI who wanted to take over the case. After tough negotiations, Andre and Frankie finally got the job. The condition is to catch the criminals before 5 am.

Everyone knows Chadwick as the Black Ghost. This superhero movie is a Marvel Comics character and part of the Avengers. The character Black Ghost was first introduced in the film Captain America: Civil War (2016), then got its own movie in 2018.

Chadwick Boseman plays the character T’Challa aka Black Panther. After the death of his father, T’Challa automatically became the reigning king of Wakanda. However, this was opposed by Erik Killmonger alias N’Jadaka, son of T’Challa’s late uncle. Since they both have the right to the throne, T’Challa and N’Jadaka fight.

Actually T’Challa doesn’t really care about the throne. Only, he knew N’Jadaka had bad intentions. In the battle for the throne, N’Jadaka defeated T’Challa. N’Jadaka became king and T’Challa is said to have died from being stabbed and thrown from a waterfall.

Immediately after ascending the throne, N’Jadaka launched his plan, which was to help his people (black people) all over the world by arming them so that they could resist the invasion. oppression that they always have to go through. Actually, N’Jadaka’s goal is good, but the method is not quite right.

Superhero movies and any American movies are usually dominated by white actors. Just look at the other Marvel movies, it’s the same thing, right. Blacks are often just representatives. However, in the movie Black Phanter, there is only one white person, which is Martin Freeman.

Chadwick plays biographies a lot, doesn’t he? Another movie about a musician, Get on Up is a biopic about James Brown, the legendary blues and funk singer, ‘The Godfather of Soul’. Since this is a musical drama, of course there will be singing. Despite using James Brown’s original voice in the singing scene, Chadwick also sings in some scenes in this movie, you know. Chadwick seems to have a good singing talent~
