The majority of moviegoers want to see films led by strong, intelligent characters that are more diverse than just heterosexual white men, especially when they are as thoughtfully and beautifully made as this one.

Some of those punches Killmonger throws have a definite Adonis Creed look to them.

This expansiveness is what is most thrilling about Black Panther: the film gives all of its black characters the space to be several things at once. To be both king and failure. Villain and revolutionary. Genius and warrior.
February 23, 2018
A superhero movie that raises key questions about the responsibilities of a nation to the rest of the world.

Move over Star Wars. A new force is with us.

February 23, 2018
It goes beyond the usual popcorn superhero film by being more complex, yet still keeps the winning genre formula.

Black Panther is the superhero film we need now, one that mixes entertainment with social awareness. It serves up a powerful but flawed hero, a villain we sympathize with and strong female characters.

What [Ryan] Coogler and his cast have achieved with this film is so rewarding and distinctive. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 22, 2018
This version of Black Panther weaves a seemingly disparate set of strands together rather seamlessly, presenting more than enough comic book acrobatics and mayhem to satisfy the core fan base while also speaking a necessary degree of truth to power.

Black Panther is not only an achievement in superhero films, but also the entire medium of filmmaking itself.
February 22, 2018
Black Panther is not just smart and politically aware for a superhero film -- it's smart and politically aware, full stop.
February 22, 2018
The feelings of loss and envy running through the film...add a level of emotional complexity to Black Panther beyond anything you might reasonably have expected.
February 22, 2018
Rather than reflecting or distorting a world, this technology builds a world and then lets it fall away. I cannot think of a better metaphor than black sand for a diaspora, a word that comes from a "scattering" yet has come to signify unity and solidarity
February 22, 2018
Killmonger is such a compelling antagonist because audiences are left to wonder whether to see him as a criminal or the inevitable outcome of society's past sins.
February 21, 2018
Black Panther gives you everything that you want from a Marvel movie, but it goes just that little bit further to sink its claws in and reward its unsuspecting audience.
February 21, 2018
There's a visual richness that expands Marvel's movie universe much the way Doctor Strange and the Guardians movies did, in this case with a beautiful blend of Afro-futurism and African mythical elements.
February 21, 2018
... it's clear that Coogler has the confidence of a filmmaker twice his age, and the skills to pull it off.
February 21, 2018
I have to admit that it is rare to feel any kind of genuine emotion in a superhero film, but Black Panther achieves that very thing.
February 21, 2018
Normally I'm inclined to not see comic-book movies in the first place, but this is one I'd like to see a second time.
February 21, 2018
Black Panther is a larger-than-fiction experience that challenges audiences to see the difference between diversity as a numbers game and the splendor of a piece of art that was created for everyone by everyone.
