"Black Panther" lived up to the hype.
February 19, 2018
When it comes to creative visuals, engaging action and likable characters, "Black Panther" stands confidently next to the best fare offered up by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
February 18, 2018
Whether or not this is the best film Marvel Studios has made to date-and it is clearly in the discussion-it is by far the most thought-provoking.
February 16, 2018
The identity politics provide a fresh spin to the genre's increasingly tedious narrative formula.
February 16, 2018
If it isn't indisputably the best of Marvel's 18 offerings, it is certainly a contender.
February 16, 2018
Jordan has swagger to spare, with those rolling shoulders, but there's a breath of charm, too, all the more seductive in the overblown atmosphere of Marvel. He's twice as pantherish as the Panther.
February 16, 2018
Coogler is trying for a lot of things in Black Panther, probably too many, but there is also a winning modesty to his ambition.
February 16, 2018
Ultimately, it's more interesting to think about than it is to watch.
February 15, 2018
It's uniquely satisfying popcorn entertainment, a triumphant trifecta of subject matter, talent and timing.
February 15, 2018
Black Panther could have been just another Marvel romp-a fun but ultimately disposable entry in the studio's catalogue. But Ryan Coogler and company had the power, and perhaps the responsibility, to do much more. And they did.
February 15, 2018
One of the year's best films, and one that transcends the superhero genre to emerge as an epic of operatic proportions.
February 15, 2018
Believe the hype: "Black Panther" transcends its comic-book origins, achieving a mythic grandeur that's nothing short of exhilarating.
February 15, 2018
The richness of the visual palette here is dazzling.
February 15, 2018
This is an origin story, globe-trotting spy thriller and fantasy, all in one. The movie manages to be part of, but something completely different than, the Marvel superhero movies that came before.
February 14, 2018
It is a terrifically entertaining film, alive from the start, following its Marvel mission (for good and bad) while rising above it.
February 14, 2018
This is 2018's first great motion picture - a title that will surely be remembered when "end of the year" bests are discussed.
February 14, 2018
Black Panther is one of the best superhero movies of the century.
February 14, 2018
To the infinite credit of Coogler and his team, Black Panther fights constantly and bitterly against the familiar constraints of Disney's superhero industrial complex.
February 14, 2018
It's very, very good -- in its best scenes, exhilarating.
February 14, 2018
It is modern, sharp and cool, honoring the past as well as the present, and pushing the boundaries of the genre past what audiences are used to from superhero movies.
