Critic Reviews for Black Panther

All Critics (337) | Top Critics (49)

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.

February 19, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Whether or not this is the best film Marvel Studios has made to date-and it is clearly in the discussion-it is by far the most thought-provoking.

February 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The identity politics provide a fresh spin to the genre's increasingly tedious narrative formula.

February 16, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

February 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Coogler is trying for a lot of things in Black Panther, probably too many, but there is also a winning modesty to his ambition.

February 16, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Ultimately, it's more interesting to think about than it is to watch.
