I’ve picked 5 best Chadwick Boseman movies you can watch now that you maybe haven’t watched. So, Black Panther is not on this list and if you haven’t watched it, I can’t help you.
Here we go:
5. Message from the King
No, the “king” in the title of this movie is not King T’Challa of Wakanda. Chadwick’s character is named Jacob King, and he is on a mission to find his missing younger sister.
4. 21 Bridges
21 Bridges is a film about Andre Young, Chadwick’s character, who becomes a police officer to honor his father, who was murdered on one of his shifts.
In this movie, Chadwick Boseman played Jackie Robinson, the legendary Brooklyn Dodger who was the first Black man to play in Major League Baseball.
Chadwick played Thurgood Marshall, the first Black Supreme Court Justice in 1967, in this moving biopic set during one of Marshall’s early trials.
1. Get On Up
This is my favorite Chadwick Boseman movie. So thoroughly does he capture James Brown’s energy and mannerisms, that you would think he actually was James Brown. This movie shuffles the events of soul king’s life in a nonlinear narrative, highlighting the cultural impact he had.
There you go, 5 best Chadwick Boseman movies you can watch now that you maybe haven’t watched.
