Black Panther Reviews

July 1, 2020
Groundbreaking? No doubt. An absolute unmitigated triumph? Time will tell, but from where I stand, not quite.
July 25, 2019
It is one of the worst movies in the Marvel Universe and as an action blockbuster I find it quite conventional and awkward. [Full Review in Spanish]

The film is painfully average. It does so much in every area but actually tell a riveting story.

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 If they think they can sucker me into paying for outdated special effects and a movie I have seen many times over, they have another thing coming.

Ryan Coogler's first misfire...

[PODCAST] "Black Panther" is forgettable as it is toxic. To pretend otherwise is pure folly.
February 20, 2018
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.

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... Michael B. Jordan. [Full review in Spanish]

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

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."
February 16, 2018
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.
February 16, 2018
Has more in common with the second-tier Marvel tales on Netflix.
February 15, 2018
An insipid, soulless, and overproduced bore.
February 15, 2018
With a bloated 2 hour, 15 minute running time, Coogler ran out of ideas.
February 14, 2018
The plotting is predictable and the action sequences for the most part unengaging. Black Panther is a major disappointment.
February 9, 2018
Dialogue heavy with a confused sense of place, this mega-budget Marvel marvel might be a misfire for anyone beyond the fan-base...
February 7, 2018
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.
