"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.

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.

February 11, 2018
The plotting is predictable and the action sequences for the most part unengaging. Black Panther is a major disappointment.

February 14, 2018
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...
March 27, 2018
[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."
May 18, 2018
Black Panther is a beautiful, meticulously created, gorgeously shot, incredibly detailed, terrifically acted, brilliantly directed movie.
May 16, 2018
Without the technological accomplishments in film that predate Black Panther, its captivating beauty, breathtaking views, and edge-of-your-seat moments would not be possible.
March 14, 2018
Run, don't walk, to the theater to see Black Panther. This is not hyperbole. It's just that good. Heck, saying it's just "good" is underselling it.
March 7, 2018
Black Panther is groundbreaking in a multitude of ways.
March 1, 2018
Black Panther is a joy of of a film, a pleasure to watch, get lost in, and revisit, with a diverse and lovable cast of characters, sumptuous visuals, and an engrossing story.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

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.
