It does nothing truly distinct from every other Marvel Studios offering, I will be first in line. If they think they can sucker me into paying for outdated special effects and a movie I have seen many times over, they have another thing coming.

"Black Panther" doesn't live up to the hype.

What's the problem? Well, there's way too much expository dialogue and there are too many turgid flashbacks...the hand-to-hand fighting and battle sequences are now so formulaic and predictable in Marvel films that the adrenaline just doesn't kick in.

Expect to leave the theatre more exhausted than entertained.

Black Panther spirals into a stodgy tale of internecine feuding, in which T'Challa is required to come to terms with the sins of past generations. What he doesn't get to do much of is jump around beating-up bad guys. That's a shame.

The problem is that this laudable political discourse ends up drowning a film that has its best moments not around the noble T'Challa, but around the great villain of the film - and the only true star of the whole movie- Michael B. Jordan...

Black Panther was certainly an intriguing idea, but with its fundamental defects, it just isn't able to achieve the heights it desperately tries to reach.

Has more in common with the second-tier Marvel tales on Netflix.

An insipid, soulless, and overproduced bore.

The plotting is predictable and the action sequences for the most part unengaging. Black Panther is a major disappointment.

With a bloated 2 hour, 15 minute running time, Coogler ran out of ideas.
February 8, 2018
Dialogue heavy with a confused sense of place, this mega-budget Marvel marvel might be a misfire for anyone beyond the fan-base...

[PODCAST] "Black Panther" is forgettable as it is toxic. To pretend otherwise is pure folly.

Ryan Coogler's first misfire...

Black Panther turns racial politics into what Malcolm X called "politricks" . . . The media's enthusiasm for this bland action flick is maddening. The problem isn't one particular movie, but the celebration of the illusion of "progress."

This is a piece of history you really want to be a part of.

It's weird and brilliant to say that a Black Panther film is properly a good film, able to stand on its own and add to the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe. Top marks.

Possibly Marvel's best.

Ryan Coogler has permanently stitched himself into the Hollywood fabric as one of the most innovative directors stretching across multiple genres. What Coogler does with Black Panther is inspiring, admirable and transformative.

You could call it Shakespearean, you could call it mythic, but that's not where the film lives. It's not about the broad strokes, it's about the details.
