Seldom have I seen such a poor movie. And I hope to keep it that way. Avoid any sequels. In fact, keep your eyes closed when he appears in the next Avengers movie.
If I can spare one person the agony of watching this, it will be worth it.
A scintillating example of how to suck the life out of what should have been a great action movie like its predecessors.
A great theater watch! Great casting, scenery and costumes. A cool introduction to Panther's hidden world! (And, his super fun techie sis!) Looking forward to the next one. 🐾😻🐾
Too much hype for it as it didn't delivered!
Best movie ever!
I saw it twice. Best villain since Dark Knight.
I thought this movie was the greatest of all time! Much needed for our youth.
Absolutely love seeing a movie this big with majority of black actor sharing some authentic African heritage.
Great casting. Some funny bits. Women warrior generals are always excellent. Cool hero-tech including awesome Panther suit(s). Overall, an entertaining "Good Guy" movie that looked great on the big screen.
Stay home and watch the first Iron Man, again.
Freaking amazing. :)
Only Wrinkle in Time has worse reviews. What do they have in common? They both gutted the original story and replaced it with some weird dogma and forgot the underlying story that made the originals great.
I read Black Panther in comic book form when I was growing up. The illustration by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, made you believe there was another time and place where Wakanda existed. It was magical and yet not so bizarre as not to believe it. This rendering of an old story, makes Narnia look like Reality TV.
This movie remind me one of the classic movies called “The bicycle man”. who robbed others to help the poor. 1920? I The movie brought a lot controversy but won the Oscars. Black Panther will get call soon. We know.
Can't wait to see the next Avengers. Black Panther will have a bit part and not be too annoying.
Badly directed. Weak script.
This movie was super sophisticated. Rich on some many elements. I loved it. No spoiling the movie. A review is a review. Focusing in the movie.
I actually am old enough to have seen Ishstar with Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman when it opened. It is regarded as the worst movie ever put on a big screen. That's saying a lot considering Ed Wood's offerings and the string of 1950s movies that followed. This one is awful, for a lot of reasons, the biggest concern is the non stop nonsensical talking that makes My Dinner With Andre look like a nail biter. Avoid. Go out enjoy the evening, buy a good book, and get together with friends. Time better spent.
Leave the kids at home. In fact leave the car, wallet, and your dog, and go for a walk. It will do you better than a two and a half hour talking head marathon.
I absolutely loved this movie. Special effects excellent. Movie plot excellent. Overall Movie Awesome!!!!!! I loved this movie.
I think will very cool having a make Wakanda in Disney World because is a make city like some of the SW imaginary planets.
Sites are reporting a 620% increase in people looking for hotel rooms in Wakanda, I kid you not. The George Carlin maxim applies here. For those of you reading the reviews, Wakanda does not exist. If you believe it does, I have some time share condos in Narnia you have cheap.
Not a date movie. Not entertaining for little kids, and even for an adult, this is too slow and too long. I've seen a Shakespeare soliloquy be more exciting. Sure the CGI is great, but when is it not these days? On a basis of what makes a truly great movie and what elements are to be found on the screen, this is definitely a one star, at best, movie.
Very little in the way of fun for kids. My children were absolutely bored. They would ask when would the grownups stop talking. They actually wanted to leave at parts. This movie is intended for adults who like superheros who talk a lot.
Amazing cast! The story line ans action in the film held my attention the entire time.
Both hero and villain have points on why they do what they do. beautiful shots of Africa, women of power . Best marvel movie.!!!
Apart from the slobbering reviews of endorsement by a single user intent on spamming the entire site I found this movie to be average. If I could rate this show more precisely than our rounded off choices I'd give it a 2.3 on the strength of some of the action at the beginning and for the costume design.
Great movie!!! I just wish I could had seen it in 3-D, 3-D was sold out. But I enjoyed it, and my wife really loved it. But if she kept on saying how kool Black Panther was, I was going to walk out! Just kidding,, I think! Seriously awesome job!
Phenomenal job!! The men in the movie played their part so well,,, and the women were gorgeous and strong! I’m going to see the movie again tomorrow, something I never did before. I just wish it was longer,,, I had to use the bathroom,, and didn’t get up because I was afraid I would miss something.
Very well executed! The details and sophiticated yet subtle history and political messages were spot on. Truly fantastic. (BTW I'm documentary filmmaker with 2 Emmys, so I have some "street cred") Black Panther will be a studied in film schools for a long time. Lighting, costuming, directing all impeccable! Very few Hollywood films put that level of detail and thought into a production. Thank you Ryan Coogler! Plus it's a fun action-packed science fiction/comic flick so you can get your Geek on too!
The best Comic book movie I've every seen.
Gorgeous, well written and performed. One of the best Marvel movies, ever!
Blade was an awesome trilogy. Luke Cage has an edgy feel that draws you in. This has the feel of a convention of out of shape men in suits talking about their products while being half in the bag.
The truth in the superhero world is that at some point, you identify with the hero and believe that in some sense it could be you. The fantasy of a superhero is to be able to boldly stand up, make your voice heard and withstand the assault. This movie leads you to believe you could be an accountant.
I wondered how the newest Avenger character would translate to a starring role. It didn't. Support role at best. The person cast for the role is too stiff and doesn't lead you to believe.
My kids came home and watched Captain America afterwards. They honestly turned and said this is how a superheros movie should be. They were not happy with the latest marvel offering.
If you appreciate craftsmanship like Gone With The Wind, Lord of the Rings, or even the first Matrix, you will find this movie tiresome. It tries to pontificate, then persuade, and eventually gives way to lecturing, but it never entertains. I want to go out for an evening and have a good time and be entertained. This was a waste of my time, money, and effort. The popcorn, though good, was not sufficient in compensating for the defects of the movie.
Comcast owns the movie companies and also bought out Rotten Tomatoes. Don't trust that site for reviews any longer as well.
