Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: When it comes to creative visuals, engaging action and likable characters, "Black Panther" stands confidently next to the best fare offered up by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Fresh: Jordan has swagger to spare, with those rolling shoulders, but there's a breath of charm, too, all the more seductive in the overblown atmosphere of Marvel. He's twice as pantherish as the Panther.
Fresh: The identity politics provide a fresh spin to the genre's increasingly tedious narrative formula.
Fresh: It's uniquely satisfying popcorn entertainment, a triumphant trifecta of subject matter, talent and timing.
Black Panther is a movie whose greatest strength is that it is made by people who care, who have so much passion for the character and the message that a black superhero is here to present. When you see Black Panther, you are treated to an all star cast who brings their game that's better than A. Chadwick Boseman kills it at T'Challa, and is able to bring the emotional moments of the movie to the forefront. Michael B. Jordan should be praised for not only playing the second/third best Marvel villain, but for playing a complex character that brings the alagory of racism and hatred to life. I would say things about the rest of the cast, but you should honestly take my word for it as trying to say anything else would spoil the movie for you. The music from both Kendrick Lamar and composer Ludwig, fill the atmosphere and embrace African culture to the fullest extent possible, provide a soundtrack that is onpar with Guardians. The cinematography is amazing as a whole, but that is what you should expect from cinematographer Rachel Morrison. Everything in Wakanda feels authentic and embraces the vibrant culture of African people and does so in a way that is aethestically pleasing, and true to who the people are. It's unique and yet familiar. Plus, they don't hammer in a message so hard like how you'd expect a film like this to be. It takes its time with telling a story in a way that the message can unfold naturally to the viewer, rather than Whiplashing like J.K. Simmons. And all this is made possible thanks to writer/director Ryan Coogler, who has given the best stand alone Marvel movie since Guardians. Without him, this movie would not have worked the way it did. I love Black Panther, and I personally don't think you have to be black or white to love it too. Because if a movie can just stick with you after you left, and you'd be willing to watch it, then watch it again, then that's all that really matters. I love this movie and I hope you will too.
A must see movie! Black Panther was one the best movies! Can’t wait to watch it again!
