      One, if not, the greatest movie out in 2018. The cast and script are phenomenal and it is very well put together. There are subtle messages throughout the movie, but not overdone. It's very enjoyable and keeps you captivated the entire time. PROS: You put the movie in and it goes straight to the play screen. No extra movie previews that you have to press buttons, or main menu button to get past. On screen the movie looks great. Quality is crisp, colors are vivid. CONS (applies to those who enjoy theatrical quality sound): this is a 4K movie, yet the audio is not 4K. We had to turn it way up to "FEEL" the loud boom and bang effects, as we do naturally with some of our other 4K movies. We thought something was wrong with our setup and started changing settings only to find out that we weren't alone. Apparently, it was mastered that way via a couple tech articles (specifically addressing Black Panthers 4K sound) that we came across. This isn't the first 4K movie we own that does this, but now we understand that it's not something wrong with our premium 4K sound setup. Easy fix, If you have the perfect theatrical sound setup and the notes aren't hitting like you want them to, and your house isn't shaking the shingles off, don't change your settings, just turn up the volume. Guaranteed you'll feel everything. Just remember to turn your volume back down before the next 4K movie. The sound isn't a biggie, but it's for those who enjoy "FEELING" like they're in the movie and not just watching it. Although, that came up for us, we are still giving it 5 stars because the movie is just that good. And the sound is great too once you turn it up, and feel the bass. :)

      One of Marvel’s Best!

      Black Panther is Marvel’s new installment in their Phase 3 of the anthology. This movie was really good. It felt more like a comic book/superhero movie than most of the other ones. Every character had great development and had a good purpose. They weren’t some character thrown in that wasn’t strong at all (ex: Darren Cross/Yellowjacket in Ant-Man). I really liked Michael B. Jordan and Andy Serkis as the main antagonists, more Michael though. Andy had a lot of fun with his role and was one of the best parts of the film. Michael did excellent with his part as Erik Killmonger. He had great development and you could see his perspective of things. He wasn’t just a bad guy they were up against, he was another character that you could feel for. I love Letitia Wright as Shuri. She was hilarious and such an interesting character. Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa was amazing. He was perfect for the role. I knew he was going to do great ever since Captain America: Civil War. The score by Ludwig Göransson was really good. The effects in the movie were pretty good, however there were some parts where they looked kind of incomplete. I really liked the cinematography in the movie. There was lots of color to the film, except for a couple scenes where it was hard to see what was going on. For me, parts of the beginning felt just a little slow, buts that’s only because they had to setup. Other than that I thought Black Panther was a movie Marvel needed and a great new face for superhero films. It is my third favorite Marvel movie now (1 being Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2 being Captain America: The Winter Soldier).

      I can't quite place it. I loved the relaunch of the Black Panther comics in the early 90s enough to search out the earlier ones from prior decades. I'm a huge fan of Ryan Coogler's directing, particularly Fruitvale Station. The acting is top-notch throughout, and while this is not Michael B Jordan's finest work, he still stands out as a star despite being surrounded by a talented and often more-experienced cast. And it's quite exciting at times. But for some reason I just couldn't see why it was as good as everyone said. My best guess is that trying to tackle issues far too important for a comic book movie trivialized both those issues and the film itself, although that's just a guess because again, I can't quite put my finger on this, one. But if you watched this film and enjoyed it beyond it just being a comic book movie and obviously comic book movies are much better these days than they used to be, check out Creed or Fruitvale Station for some better collaboration between the director and Michael B Jordan (Killmonger). And I'd still recommend this one. I was just expecting better I guess.

      Another strong MCU addition

      The MCU has been on a solid run as of late, with Homecoming and Ragnorak being incredibly strong entries that overcame the (slightly) disappointing Guardians Volume 2 and Doctor Strange. Black Panther is another peak effort, and the cultural phenomenon will appeal to longtime MCU fans as well as audiences who are fairly new to the franchise. The strong and steady performance of Chadwick Bosemans epynonmous hero continues from his introduction in Civil War as he continues his transition to a leader of Wakanda, and is bolstered a strong supporting cast of Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gueria, Martin Freeman and Letitia Wright among others contributed to this becoming a well rounded hero’s tale that has assumed its place a a top-5 MCU film. However, the MCU has been at its best when a strong villain is a counter to the hero, and Michael B Jordan’s Killmonger is able to blend a terrific performance envoking the audience sympatheties while also remaining very much a strong character.

      Overhyped, but still pretty good.

      There's been a ton of hype for this movie, and while a lot of it is extremely blown out of proportion, "Black Panther" is still a very good movie that's required viewing for anyone keeping up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since this is T'Challa's first solo venture, the vast majority of the movie is dedicated to introducing characters, as well as showing off the primary setting of Wakanda itself. There's a lot of interesting stuff here to build stories around, which I imagine we'll see once a "Black Panther" sequel inevitably comes out. The action's pretty decent for what it is, though it takes a bit of a back seat to character building. Even the titular role that T'Challa takes on isn't in it as much as you'd expect for a superhero flick. This isn't a bad thing, per say, but if you go in expecting it to be all action like the trailer would imply, you might feel a bit disappointed. Still, as I said, this is a pretty good movie, and is enjoyable enough. Plus, if you have yet to see "Avengers: Infinity War", this is practically required viewing before doing so.

      True to the comic book and added a nice modern tou

      Black Panther in my opinion held true to the comic book story most of all and added in a more modern touch by including current issues along with the answer as to why Wakanda has been in the shadows and has ignored the struggles of black people around the world. It has just enough humor and excellent villains which I believe makes the movie that much more better. You actually get to a point where you sympathize with the villain who does give you pause to think for a moment but in the end know that what he strives for is not how you change the world and the ending credit scene helps to wrap things up and gives a sense of satisfaction once it's all said and done. Also, AND THIS NEXT PART MIGHT BE A BIT OF A SPOILER FOR INIFINITY WAR - if you watch the trailer for the new Infinity War movie you see Tony Stark "activate" his armor in a similar way that Black Panther does for his suit which has to be because Wakanda has shared their tech with the world. Can't wait for Shuri to meet Tony for the first time ;)

      Black Panther is fun and enjoyable

      Black Panther is fun and enjoyable, The character had already appeared in Captain America: Civil War in 2016. The Panther is the king of a fictional African country called Wakanda. He has superpowers and a bulletproof suit. Wakanda is technologically advanced but pretends to be poor and primitive. The Wakandans seem to be at least a century ahead of the rest of humanity, certainly in terms of medical care. But they don’t share their technology or give aid to others. They don’t allow immigration or take in refugees. It is a Wakandan First philosophy. The film revolves around a domestic power struggle for the throne. The Panther’s rival wants to use the country's technology to rule the world. There is a lot of fighting but there is also humor. The Panther is played by Chadwick Boseman who is very likable. It is an enjoyable superhero movie and it has Marvel’s usual high production values. The director, Ryan Coogler, is from Oakland, California which probably explains why that city also makes an appearance.

      A different style of movie

      Black Panther feels like it's quite a bit different than your normal MCU film. This movie did a better job of really showing a unique culture in a way that movies taking place in literal space couldn't manage. The movie itself is its own thing in almost every respect. For some people who are going in expecting an average MCU film, they might end up being disappointed. The film itself is propped up by an understandable villain, unique characters, and some good moral questions. It isn't going to bash too hard at the big issues. But it does use them as a base for the setting and conflict. Which is a nice change of pace in my opinion. The only complaint I have is that there wasn't a Bluray DVD combo package. I'm not going to take a star off as that doesn't affect the quality of the movie or features. But it's something that really annoys me.
