    Don't Believe The Hype

    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 The forced jokes are terrible and outdated.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.

    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.

    Really good film, but not remotely 'the best'

    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...

    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!

    A milestone for the MCU

    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.

    A bit of overhype, but not bad by any means

    Let me say this off the bat: Micheal B. Jordan's Erik Kilmonger is the best villain that Marvel has had in its films. Strong personal motivations with a clear goal and a powerhouse performance. Great performances all around, in fact. My main gripe is with some glaring plot holes that I feel are being shrugged off because people so badly want this to be the greatest comic book movie ever made. For example, I don't see any justification for a Golden Globe Best Picture Drama Nomination. Also, some of the plot points were very predictable, which would be fine if they didn't treat each twist like a revelation of storytelling. That being said, it is at the higher echelons of the MCU and Marvel fans will not be disappointed.

    Even setting aside the long-overdue acknowledgement of black heritage, this is a better than average super hero movie. The characters are mostly interesting the set design using African themes are gorgeous to look at and the action sequences are good too. Watching African American kids in the theater finally able to get the same kick out of watching a superhero that they can easily imagine themselves to be in their daydreams just adds another layer of enjoyment. I always imagined that secretly I could be Peter Parker when I was 10 years old (idiotic I know, but i was T E N yeas old!) so why shouldn't black kids dream about the Black Panther? Fun movie.

    Okay, so this is an awesome film. Very entertaining with very interesting and topical subtext. The 4k picture quality is also top notch. However, the sound is very disappointing. To put it simply, the soundtrack for the film is very restrained. IMO, it is intended to sound this way because the dialog in the film is crystal clear and the music in the film has very good bass. The issue is in the action scenes, which lack any real punch at all in bass. Also, for an Atmos mix, there is very little use of surround, which is a real missed opportunity IMO. I still recommend this but be aware that if you have a real nice home theater surround system, you will be disappointed in the Atmos track.

    Getting the most out my 4K TV

    I wasn't sure if I wanted to spring the extra $4 for owning the 4K version of this movie but after spending all the coins for the 80" TV and extra soundbars, decided to stop being a cheap skate and bought this box office super hit and took it home. This movie did not fail in giving me the eye-candy of super-HD with the background and the costuming. I did not give it a full 5-star rating as this was, after all, an action flick. I reserve 5 stars exclusively for documentaries such as Blue Planet series and great sci-fi such as 2001, etc. Yes, I am bias but then all reviews are bias of the reviewer/writer.

    I didn't love Black Panther as much as the rest of the world. My biggest beef are the action sequences. None of them are memorable here whereas every action sequence with Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War was memorable. I wish Ryan Coogler would have studied that film and asked the Russo Brothers for advice. I also hate that in the climax Black Panther and Killmonger are constantly taking their digital masks on and off. This disc is full of cool extras and I really loved the roundtables discussion!

    Black Panther is not a bastion of narrative creativity, but it's done well, it's exciting, it's well acted, and it's beautifully and passionately crafted. Action, costumes, and conviction make up for a fairly linear storyline that has precious few surprises up its sleeve. It's not the best entry into the MCU, but it's a lot of fun in its exploration of one of the most interesting worlds and engaging characters on the Marvel roster. Disney's Blu-ray is packed with extras, features excellent video, and audio is fine if one cranks it up. Highly recommended.

    Given the social hype this movie had, I expected it to much worse than it was. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't. The concept has its flaws however. The mythical city's technology is so advanced, it might as well be alien. This leaves some big questions about how the ending will effect the Marvel Universe if there is to be any continuity. And, the fact that they intentionally stayed hidden while Africa was bathed in blood throughout its history is a bit of a problem too.

    One of the better films in the franchise, expanding the Marvel Universe in a great way. It is interesting the juxtaposition between what is perceived as a poor third world country and the truth about Wakanda as depicted in this film. The cinematics are beautiful, and the characters are moderately well fleshed out. Overall I really loved the film, but then, I enjoy entertainment which lets my thoughts rest and my imagination ... well, imagine.

    Compared to the other Marvel films, Black Panther has a different feel to it. I would say the film relies more heavily on the storyline than on the super-human action scenes that tend to drive the other Marvel films. Don't misunderstand, there is plenty of action in Black Panther, as well as some mysticism, ultra high-tech gadgets, and even a couple of politically correct themes. It isn't my favorite Marvel offering, but Black Panther is worth watching for anyone who is a fan of the Marvel films.

    I went into this movie with outlandish expectations as I saw it somewhat late and the hype train surrounding this movie had reached astronomical proportions. But it turned out to be a solid movie, with good acting and a great story line. By far my favorite character was the antagonist player by Michael B. Jordan. I liked him more the Black Panther lol, definitely had more personality than Black Panther. Overall, a good movie that I would recommend.

    When I went to the theater I was hoping to see a better movie, to be honest. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad movie, it's a good film, but not great. I guess that as I am not an American I don't see or feel identified with this movie like some do, therefore for me it's just good but nothing spectacular. The 4K steelbook has a really nice metal finish but I would have loved a title on the front. I think that was missing, other than that it is a great looking steelbook.

    I liked this movie, but I didn’t love it as much as some people. I think it’s a big problem when you lose the protagonist for 20 minutes of the 3rd act and your climax is rendered in the worst cgi of the movie. But, I do like these characters. The film peaks for me during a car chase sequence. The 4K looks amazing and subtle colors just pop. It’s an okay movie, but I love the MCU so I say pick it up!

    Love the steelbook, but you guys should've made it look like Vibranium. MISSED OPPORTUNITY. Great movie, I was super entertained and enjoyed it. Didn't even mind the plot holes (like the impossible economy, not using the air force and battle rhinos etc.... So when are we gonna see an all Mexican cast for a hero that appeals to the largest minority in America? #THEBROWNPUMA. Hey Marvel! My money is waiting to be spent! I want a hero that looks like my family too!

    This film has a good story line.. The 4k disc has excellent picture quality., Wakanda looks amazing. Although picture was amazing, this film had poor sound quality... it doesn't deliver bass you can feel and it lacked the use of heights. In order to get somewhat of immersive sound you need to crank your receiver volume up a lot. more than you usually do. I gave it a 4 star because of its sound quality.

    This movie was entertaining and very enjoyable to watch, I would totally recommend this to family and friends… Movie had a good story line/plot pretty good acting and again pretty enjoyable… If you’re a fan its a must watch. Wasn't what everyone made it out to be most of the other Marvel releases were a lot better than this movie but thats just my honest opinion, this movie wasn't bad but I just believe that people over-rated this movie
