      Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Reviews

      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.

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

      Full Review | Nov 30, 2022

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

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

      The first Black Panther... set a bar Wakanda Forever didn't come close to matching. But taken on its own terms, as a superhero sequel tasked with serving an unusually wide range of needs, it stands as a different kind of accomplishment.

      Wow! You’ll say that over and over again as this mind-blowing, superhero epic unfolds. Wow!

      Wakanda Forever may not be the perfect Marvel movie, but [it] prove its worthiness as a bridge – not merely between Phase 4 and Phase 5... but from the bleakness of loss to a stable place from which a new generation can move forward.

      The most unlikely Marvel film ever... they take these really small bites of grieving, and they can extend them and live in them, and still be able to tell an engaging action-oriented story.

      I find I respect Coogler’s sequel more than I actually enjoyed it, and that’s as disappointing a turn of events as any I could have imagined.

      The emotional core is raw, credible and affecting.

      The opening and closing sequences of Wakanda Forever will make your heart ache. But at 2hrs 41mins, this is also one of the longest films in the MCU. And there are long stretches in it which border on boredom. I was weepy but also weary.

      Coogler pulls off an incredible feat, despite some story stumbles, creating a superhero film that is emotionally affecting, politically and culturally urgent, and that pays loving tribute not just to T’Challa but Chadwick Boseman too.

      After a spate of manic superhero blockbusters that ricocheted from one digital spectacle to another, this one takes its time with character and plot but doesn’t develop either to any satisfying degree.

      A thoughtful and mature exploration of communal grief in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a fitting tribute to the legacy of Chadwick Boseman.

      A stunning tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.

      Fans of the MCU will doubtless embrace this at times moving sequel in a big way; for more serious cinemagoers this will remain a foreign country.

      The underwater sequences intended to visualize Talokan are drab and washed-out to the point of distraction, and even a street-level car chase shot at night is near-impossible to track, all the darkness seemingly intended to cover for lackluster CGI.

      Almost like being at a funeral while trying to shush the kids who are playing with their Iron Man toys. ... It's more fascinating than your average comic book movie, even though it doesn't work as a comic book movie.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Nov 11, 2022

      It can’t top the original and the absence of Chadwick Boseman hurts real bad, but Ryan Coogler’s sequel proves to be more than cringey franchise building by putting women of color in charge (yay to Angela Bassett and Letitia Wright) and watching them fly.

      For all its comic-book violence, over-the-top villainy, and too dark CGI, at its core this is a film about dealing with loss.

      “Wakanda Forever” is the first blockbuster wake, and it’s powered not by vibranium but by its vibrant and fully felt emotions.
