"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.

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."
October 16, 2018
There are a lot of corporate interests that need be served here and yet Coogler has made a blockbuster that feels deeply personal and pertinent to the times we live in.

Coogler is a director that may make better films than this one, but it will be hard to ever envision a world where he creates something so meaningful to so many people.

Seeing so many wonderful, powerful, amazing characters that are well written and the fact that they were able to do a movie that was Black for Marvel and that it was good exceeded my expectations.
August 27, 2018
Coogler knows fully too well the reach of something like Black Panther, and he uses the Marvel canvas to paint a bigger - but more importantly, a powerful - picture.
August 27, 2018
It's the most formidable Marvel film to date; a cinematic artifact that feels like it shouldn't belong to the corporate superhero apparatus. But it's really exciting to know that it does.

A big win for representation on screen & behind the scenes, my only criticism is that I like the women better than the lead. Fingers crossed for girl power in the sequel.

This movie came and did the damn thing... Everybody killed it.
