      Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Reviews

      lack Panther: Wakanda Forever has the usual MCU mix of humour and fun action scenes but it's severely lacking a charismatic lead performer, and some of the lazy writing during the final third was frankly embarrassing. One of the weaker MCU efforts.

      Its pacing may feel a bit undercalculated as some scenes consume too much screen time, though unsure footing can be forgiven by closed chapters and new beginnings.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Feb 23, 2023

      The sheer volume of subplots makes the finished product rather unwieldy, struggling to maintain the tight thematic focus of ‘Black Panther.’

      If there’s one compelling callback to the lost T’Challa that really works, it’s the Queen who has seemingly lost a good chunk of her family and now is faced with its greatest threat. Bassett is the brightest light here.

      There's already something kind of special about a movie that's largely about grief being made as an act of grieving.

      Feels like a very fitting memorial to a friend who died unexpectedly from a horrible disease, far too young.

      The tribute here is heartfelt, but the spirit of the man and the character sometimes get lost in all the bric-a-brac of the Marvel machine... the film lands on a triumphant note of succession, as it must– the gods inside and above the narrative demand it.

      Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a good film, that much is certain. At the same time it fails to quite match the extraordinary impact of the original Black Panther.

      An exercise in superhero mourning done right.

      A beautiful tribute, an attempt at every turn to honor and recognize Chadwick Boseman's importance... they meant so well, but as a film there are a lot of misses here.

      A compelling, beautiful story about family and carrying on a loved one’s legacy...

      A superhero movie with soul.

      You can hear a pin drop in the first five minutes of Wakanda Forever. It’s intense and doesn’t let go of wrestling with loss, the cycle of violence and how we respond to it all throughout its running time. Even with that, this film is a vibe!

      In this meta way, there is this audience recognition that the actors on screen aren’t just going through the motions here and what you’re witnessing isn’t a performance of grief, but an actual show of grief.

      Angela Bassett is in control with a cinematic elegance that can't be taught or directed - it's in her DNA making this sequel another reason for audiences to cross arms proclaiming Wakanda Forever with pride and tribute to Chadwick Boseman.

      Tenoch Huerta had his breakthrough role not only in Hollywood’s massive Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also in the MCU’s grand Black Panther story...

      This soulful sequel teams an emotional tribute to late star Chadwick Boseman with some spectacular visual action. A maturity milestone for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring Angela Bassett and Winston Duke.

      Where The Avengers: Endgame lacked in its depiction of post-traumatic psychological exploration, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever makes up for in its examination of grief as a motivator and the difficulty of moving on from a core part of one’s own identity.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/4 | Dec 25, 2022

      As a tribute to Chadwick Boseman, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a beautiful remembrance of the man, the talent, and the character under his brief stewardship. As a movie, though, the results become a bit shakier.

      For the most part, Coogler balances the film’s onscreen and offscreen needs extremely well. But three areas didn’t quite work for me.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
