      Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Reviews

      A disappointment, especially compared to its excellent predecessor.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Mar 19, 2023

      Wakanda Forever is very long and needed an intermission. You know it’s a Marvel movie because it’s steeped in boredom, with every scene threatening to not end.

      Full Review | Mar 16, 2023

      Wakanda Forever tries to be a tribute and a recapitulation and a cog in the ever-grinding Marvel machine. The result is sometimes moving and intermittently watchable. But it’s a also a mess—not least in its politics.

      Wakanda Forever doesn't show, it tells. This is, simply and plainly, an affront to cinematic language. [Full review in Spanish]

      Black Panther: Wakanda Forever entertains but also disappoints, perhaps because we expect so much more.

      Though it will be remembered for the strong performances by Wright and Bassett, and the way it powerfully honors Boseman, the storytelling is standard and lacking the same strength.

      …Wakanda Forever may well have fans, but it’s hard to imagine anyone who could prefer this bloated, confusing film to the far more effective original….

      Kind of a mixed bag, but worth seeing if you liked the first one.

      A palpable low point for the Marvel Cinematic Universe...

      Full Review | Original Score: 0/4 | Nov 24, 2022

      Feels overstuffed, filled with interesting ideas and possibilities that never fully come into focus.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Nov 21, 2022

      You can still see the bones of the original concept, poking jaggedly through the flesh of the story, and meshing not at all with the new material about grieving and coming to grips with loss.

      Nobody expects Shakespearean dialogue in these films, but the script and the plot should not be this crummy.

      Full Review | Nov 19, 2022

      The MCU’s mechanics are too oppressive to allow for true mournful meditation.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5 | Nov 18, 2022

      What results is an undoubtedly muted and depressing film, with almost all of the issues that plagued the production manifesting themselves on screen and having a deleterious impact.

      Full Review | Nov 17, 2022

      With a sleeker script (Wakanda Forever runs 161 minutes), Wright and Huerta Mejía might have owned the sequel the way Boseman and Jordan owned the original, but their performances get lost in a rush of bland battles and baffling detours.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Nov 17, 2022

      It’s certainly not the worst Marvel film (remember Eternals? Me neither), and there are moments of true excellence—particularly Angela Bassett’s performance of rage and grief. But it’s disappointing to see the promising setup fizzle.

      Completely unfocused, everything is important so nothing ends up being so. [Full review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Nov 16, 2022

      Ryan Coogler's sequel mourns Boseman, can't deliver suitable successor.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Nov 14, 2022

      After a solid prologue, every single decision either misses an opportunity or pulls its punches. Especially when given the chance to elevate its female protagonists it then gives all the dynamics to its new villain in an overlong but well undercut sequel.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Nov 14, 2022

      As a heartbreaking farewell to Boseman and his character, the film mostly succeeds. Which is good, because the rest is as frustratingly messy as the MCU has ever been.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
