Jenna Marotta indieWire Each man and woman...is resplendent in Ruth Carter's traditional costumes. Indigenous dialects are spoken amid the space flights, museum heists, and car chases. Mar 31, 2020 Full Review Lawrence Ware New York Times "Black Panther" lived up to the hype. Jan 9, 2019 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review You could feel like everybody felt like they were making something that they were really proud of. Aug 28, 2018 Full Review Don Shanahan Every Movie Has a Lesson Pushing aside the proclivity to have a empowered science nerd or a plucky quipster as its heroic lead, a Marvel film hasn’t been this brawny, righteous, and tough. Rated: 5/5 Feb 16, 2024 Full Review Jennifer Bisset CNET Marvel movies proved they could keep on evolving with Ryan Coogler's Black Panther. The 2018 film bucked the superhero formula with its Afro-futurist setting, family saga and James Bond gadgetry. Apr 20, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A heady mix of William Shakespeare and Walt Disney -- and with a few James Bond gadgets added to sweeten the deal -- it ventures far beyond wham-bam-thank-you-Stan territory. Rated: 3.5/4 Mar 22, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Stephen S loved the adaptation put to film. representation is important Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/18/22 Full Review Krystal W I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/30/21 Full Review Andrew K Great movie! Loved the action. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/04/21 Full Review Nicky Beautiful movie. Amazing imagery Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/15/21 Full Review Quentin A perfect movie with a perfect cast and director! Had to see this multiple times in theaters, and bought it immediately on DVD. WAKANDA FOREVER!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/22/22 Full Review matthias s Title: "Black Panther" – A Roaring Good Time, but Not Purrfect As a Marvel junkie rewatching the MCU, "Black Panther" remains a standout with its vibrant depiction of Wakanda and compelling characters. Wakanda's blend of futuristic tech and rich African culture is visually stunning, making it a place you want to explore. Chadwick Boseman's T’Challa is regal and strong, perfectly capturing the essence of a king. However, Michael B. Jordan's Erik Killmonger steals the show with his intense and relatable villainy. The action sequences, especially the ritual combats, are thrilling, though the CGI in the final fight feels a bit off. Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Danai Gurira’s Okoye add humor and strength, enhancing the film's depth. Overall, "Black Panther" is a great watch with heart and action, despite a few stumbles. It’s a must-see for any Marvel fan, even if it's not entirely flawless. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/09/24 Full Review Read all reviews
