Unfortunately the magic that I had hoped for was lost along the way. The story line was acceptable but the character of Killmonger was flat and not interesting at all.
As this is a superhero movie I would have rather it stayed away from being preachy even in the slightest. This isn't a sweeping historical drama, this is an action movie. Or so it should have been.
It's sad when the most interesting about the film takes only 10% of the movie, the rest is really lackluster, especially the plot and the character development.
Not a lot to say about the acting, some really poor line delivery from the cast across the board except for Andy Serkis. No one was particularly charismatic, the main character for instance was extremely boring.
Black Panther was extremely average, I have no idea what these critics/review bots are talking about when they say that it is the best Marvel movie and worthy of "critical" praise.
A cinematic failure.
Please, please, please, don't make a sequel.
Over 100,000 tickets block bought and distributed for free in Detroit and Chicago alone. It's so good they give away seats to get people to see it.
Two older people in the audience turned to each other and started talking about the weather. Nuff said.
Over the top action is about 5% of the movie. It looks nice, you want to see more of it. But instead you get discussions about Wakandan politics and the questionable choices of the main character's father.
The directer actually wants you to root for the most useless and impotent king ever.
I wish there was something to applaud, but there isn't. It's goofy, badly directed, and predictable. If there were some humor, it might make it more palatable, but in this instance, it's not.
Was elated to leave when it ended.
An interesting city? 5 minutes of screen time. Witty jokes? Like 3 in the whole movie, and the funniest character gets killed after like 40 minutes.
It's seen as a reflection of reality, and the quality of the movie when most believe Thor's Asgard possibly exists, more so than a possible Wakanda.
I predicted nearly every "plot twist" 5 minutes before they happened.
A recycled Thor movie, but without Thor.
Marvel has damaged it's reputation with this one. Shouldn't have sold to Disney.
Someone said there was a joke in the movie? I thought the whole movie was the joke.
Some special effects were good, others weak. The first 20-25 minutes were pretty slow before things picked slightly.
Stan Lee says, maybe we should make a good movie about Black Panther next.
Was really ready for a great super-hero/action film, and it just wasn't compelling enough
Wolverine, Iron Man, even Thor. People I know went to see those multiple times, and would talk about them. I have not met a single person who even bothered to discuss the film or see it a second time. I go by referrals, and this one seems to not have that vibe going.
A movie you can take dead people to. They won't leave, protest or take your popcorn. Stan Lee asked to be edited out of this one. He's telling people it;s a DC movie.
44.67% of population can't be wrong. This is a dud.
A weak movie for weak minds. Marvel used to make great movies, now that Disney has control it's all PC nonsense, and dialogue. Action scenes cost more money.
This just felt like a really average superhero movie with dumb jokes and a story like any other.
We chose today to watch this movie since today’s is raining cats and dogs. Lol Perfect time and day. Very relaxing film.
I went to see this movie and I think it was a good film. Marvel did a good job working in this kind of master piece movie.
This movie has a lot of pointless scenes that achieve nothing.
Can’t wait to see it again. A feast for the eyes and the mind. Great story.
Loved it. Lived up to the hype.
Excellent movie. A new hero for a new generation.
Wakanda of movie is this? It makes Alice in Wonderland look like a documentary.
I never read the comic but I really enjoyed black panther for the acton scenes and positive messages.
Black Panther rocks Marvel.
An amazing story of my favorite character.
Wonderful, great fantastic. I have not enough words to describe this fantastic adventures movie.
The movie was great from start to finish. Wakanda was amazing. Can't wait for him to join the Avengers.
