    Reviewed by Tito Thomas from his mother's account. Now, I realize that this movie disappointed some fans due to the lack of a lot of action happening throughout the film, unlike other MCU films, however, I think that what makes a great movie, regardless of genre, isn't necessarily the action, or how the actors look, but character, and this movie delivers. T'Challa was a great protagonist with relate ability, and likability that stayed consistent with what we saw in Civil War, and built upon it. I liked all of the other characters, including T'Challa's sister and his ex-girlfriend. Killmonger is the main villain of the film, and deserves credit for his sympathy for others of his race who've suffered discrimination from Europeans through history up to the present. They also set up his backstory pretty well and make him a legitimately intimidating villain who is able to more than hold his own against T'Challa in a fight. The story is also very well written and includes some commentary against choosing to be an isolated nation, as is made apparently when that choice of Wakanda's people came back to haunt them when Killmonger arrives there. It also, really puts America's history of trying to stay isolated via the Monroe Doctrine into perspective, as well as caring more about protecting yourselves as a society as opposed to helping others. The film is also beautiful to watch, and actually makes the most of the few action scenes it has. The actors do excellent in portraying their characters too, and each character arc is fleshed out pretty well in the film. The only issue I have is...I would have LOVED to have seen Kraven The Hunter in the movie! Hope he makes an appearance in the sequel. Overall, I recommend this movie to any Black Panther fan, and any Political movie person as well.

    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).

    Must see, must Buy! Pros & Cons

    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. :)

    Hearing all the hype toward this film, I went in thinking one thing and came out thinking another. This is probably the stupidest film I've ever seen. You got all these people from Wakanda practicing tribal religious nonsense, in fact one guy, who had a few talking scenes, sported a plate in his lip, which made understanding him extremely difficult, I might add. But the Academy Awards think it's pure gold. Ya, right! When a group of people become advanced, they tend to cease practicing archaic rituals as their advanced technology makes said superstitions obsolete. Take our society now: We worship the almighty internet, and the devices that bring it to us. We, on the other hand, have rejected God and deride anyone who keeps with such ancient traditions as foolish, or even dangerous. In the end, Black Panther was an absolute mess. It's a film that tries to please everyone and makes connections that do not exists. In this respect, it's hard to even enjoy it as a popcorn-flick. This is what happens when people replace entertainment for propaganda. Get used of it, because this is the future of all entertainment. Go read 1984 instead.

    Not to make this too lengthy I'll simply say this is a GOOD movie. Not great. Not amazing. Not a genre defining movie. Not a must see. A solid 7.5/10 to be completely honest. The pacing is terrible. The movie gets into a great rthymn one minute then turns into a boring slug fest the next. The audio is tolerable at times until the music loudly takes over dialogue that may be important. It's annoying at times. The score at times is a win until that generic superhero theme music creeps in that sounds so familiar from each MCU movie. The CGI is bad. Really really bad for movie with this budget. The third act says it all. The forced jokes are terrible and outdated. Some intense scenes are killed instantly for a quick laugh. The acting is well done. Especially from Chadwick Boseman and Michael B Jordan. The fight scenes and action is handled extremely well. The story is okay for the most part. Supporting cast did a great job as well. Having a superhero movie set in another country was a nice change to see. As for the 4k, it's not. It Was shot on 2k intermediate and upscaled just like Infinity War. I personally bought it for my MCU collection but it's not a must see or important to any overall arc.

    One of the latest entries in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, BLACK PANTHER is an enjoyable film with some great action sequences and acting talent. The film is unfortunately somewhat repetitive of many superhero films we have. The villain in particular has a dozen different motivations for his plan, but they don't line up and contradict each other in more ways than one. BLACK PANTHER also seems to get a lot of undeserved credit for being "the first black superhero film", even though BLADE & BLADE II (also a Marvel property) came out more than 15 years earlier, and were both better films in my personal opinion. Overall, the movie is definitely worth watching, there's lots to love in the film, but there's aspects that make no sense or just don't work. If you're a fan of the MCU, this one will be essential to view moving forward.

    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.

    FIVE STARS; but not as good as others

    It gets FIVE STARS. It was very well made and MARVEL/DISNEY movies are incredible. I do not think it deserves the hype it got. The sales did go up since normal watchers of MARVEL movies and those it targeted went see it. It wasn't because it was a better movie than the rest. That is because it was made into a P.C. item. I can say it did address a negative view point many have in a very digestive manner. Many people do not know that MARVEL changed the name of the Black Panther comic to Black Leopard because they did not support aggressive organizations. Marvel was the first t use this name and disliked having to change the name to save its comic that gave America a black hero. When the Black Panther movement died down. Marvel started to use the Black Panther name again. So there is a reason there is P.C. stuff in the movie. Personally. I just want a good movie. It's a good movie. If you push past the P.C. issue and the fact it did so good at the box office when it wasn't as good as the rest. This is worth watching and owning.

    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.

    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 ;)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Another great installment by Disney/Marvel and a wonderful new step into superherodom for a misuser community. The strength lies in the hero and the villain. Chadwick Boseman returns as T’Challa and continues with the story of a young man, having lost his father, thrust into the throne and faced with major choices on how to lead. Michael B. Jordan truly shines as the multi-layered Eric Killmonger; a mercenary and freedom fighter with a dark past and dark vision to free the oppressed. The score, costume design, and production design are, by far, the best parts of this film. They feel vibrant, original, and alive. The visual effects have some issues at times (especially at the end), and the film, like so many Marvel films before it, puts a nice bow on the ending (which feels too easy). Overall, though - this is a film not to miss!

    This film was good. From start to finish it entertained. Boseman did a fine job as T'Challa, and Jordan was great as Killmonger. The actresses did a good job too, though I thought the general was over-emphasized a bit much. The political messages were not too bad, but subtle (and inaccurate as the African mask was no more 'stolen' than any artifact in museums). However, why this movie is getting the attention that it's 'one of the all-time best' is absurd. That is pure media. It was great, but it's not as good as Civil War, Winter Soldier, Avengers, Iron Man 1 or Thor Ragnarok. Why Thor 3 got lower reviews is beyond me, as it was funnier, more action-packed, and entertaining. Black Panther deserves to be considered in the top 10 Marvel Studios movies, but it's not top 3. Definitely worth seeing, and surely worth owning to add to the Marvel collection. I just don't like when films--particularly for political motives--are exaggerated. Though it's way better than Spider-Man Homecoming...

    What a Marvel movie this has been for the MCU. It definitely is in the top 10 for me. I liked it very much, but I liked Civil War, Winter Soldier, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers 1, Iron Man 1, Avengers Infinity War part 1 better overall. I think all of the characters portrayed in the film did a good job, especially that of the actor who portrays Black Panther himself. Well done casting. Now that Infinity War has taken the number 1 spot of all time openings for a movie, Black Panther will certainly still be in the top10 All Time list for movies. I don't think the political overtones in this one was too far over the line, but they were there. My problem with the movie itself is how did all this technology they possess come from a rock? That seems a bit far stretched. Just my thoughts. Having seen Infinity War, part 1 and awaiting ANT MAN and WASP, it's a good thing here to release Black Panther during this time. Kudos!

    I've been a longtime fan of the character. The movie exceeded my expectations. I could've never imagined seeing a fully realized Wakanda on screen. The attention to detail is astonishing. T'Challa was played extremely well and as a character and a king he wasn't afraid to let others shine and bring the best out of them. That's one of his greatest strengths that I think is easily overlooked as other characters are made to seem "more interesting". At the same time those other characters such as Shuri, Nakia, Okoye, Killmonger and even Klaue hold more than their own. In a lot of ways their stories and arcs are improvements on their comic counterparts. At the end of it all I'm just grateful this movie happened.

    I’m torn on this movie - it’s well made, has a great cast, and is, like pretty much all Marvel films, a lot of fun to watch, but it’s certainly flawed, and for me, not quite the masterpiece others see it as. The cast is great, and Ryan Coogler proved himself a talent and a natural for handling a big-budget megablockbuster, all the more impressive when you consider his more small-scale films prior. But for me the visual effects were terrible, the action scenes forgettable and quite boring, and is it me, or does the main character take a backseat to everyone else in the movie? On the other hand, we are treated to a wonderful ensemble of iconic characters, like Shuri, Okoye, Klawe, etc. Like other Marvel Blu-rays, the disc is another technical triumph, featuring excellent video and audio.

    Black Panther is an absolutely wonderful movie. This story continues the winning tradition of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When I first heard the Black Panther character would receive their own story I was admittedly skeptical but my opinion changed after seeing the theatrical trailer (when I went to see a different movie). Upon going to the theater to see the actual movie it did not disappoint and I left very impressed. I also knew right away it would be purchased on DVD once available. Best Buy was also nice enough to offer a coupon at the time the movie was released onto DVD. Even if you aren't a fan of the MCU, this movie is worth seeing and will not disappoint. It's got a great story, great characters, wonderful visuals, and great action sequences too. Grab your DVD copy today. It looks and sounds even better on Blu Ray DVD. You won't be disappointed!
