However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne by factions within his own country as well as without. Using powers reserved to Wakandan kings, T'Challa assumes the Black Panther mantel to join with girlfriend Nakia, the queen-mother, his princess-kid sister, members of the Dora Milaje (the Wakandan 'special forces') and an American secret agent, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.

The lighting can be unnatural, and sometimes the acting is awkward; the concentration on process seems numbing. But those very defects give the film a special mood, lucid in its nastiness, but not too far from black surrealism.
Created IMBD Account Just To Write This Review---That's how important is was for me to explain my thoughts on this movie. Super disappointed in this one. I say disappointed because I was really excited to see a great Super Hero movie with real Cultural cues. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.Cultural Cues: MISSEDIt wasn't clear if this movie was endorsing Black American culture or African culture. No, they are not one-in-the-same. The futuristic Wakanda has graffiti on the walls (American Street Art) as well as tribal African painting that is chipped (is it impossible for paint to stay fresh in Africa?) and there are street merchants selling hand-woven baskets (fits the "tribal" scene, but not exactly the advanced technology city they were trying to illustrate).Music seemed odd and try-hard. In a movie celebrating black culture, I was expecting some amazing, compelling bass-heavy, Kendrick-themed action scenes. Instead, we got typical Super Hero theme music with a snare added to it. Acting & Character Development: MOSTLY OKMichael B Jordan gave an excellent, powerful performance as Killmonger. His physique was massive and he was extremely compelling in comparison to other movies I've seen him in. Unfortunately, as a villain, it wasn't clear if we were rooting for him or against him. His character definitely displayed Leadership and strength that T'Challa (Black Panther) was lacking. I kinda wanted Killmonger to change his ways and become the permanent leader.Klaue, played by Serkis was also excellently well executed. But again, he was still pretty likable. No villain to hate means so protagonist to root for.Jabari tribe... what? Seemed more like the black fraternity Omega Psi Phi with their barking and mindless (and unexplainable) barbarism in an advanced societyStoryline & Message: EXTREMELY CONFUSINGIs the motivation political, or revenge? Is colonization good or bad? Is this a black/african versus white movie, or a weak versus power movie? Why is the king of the country determined by the best fighter? Is Wakanda advanced, or tribal? both? Alien precious metal, but no Foreign Affairs policies? Is opening an outreach center in the ghetto really enough Social Responsibility initiative for the most advanced society ever?
3 stars for visuals---Good idea to place 'Something Good' in Africa. Now take the idea and make a good story. Huh? Lets just mix&match visual effects and feel-good myths about (good) Africa and the (bad) western world. Good looking actors do the rest.How is the leader of the most advanced technological society in the world chosen? Of course, by a fight to the death! The survivor gets absolute power. That results in is peaceful, diverse society (tribal of course), women are empowered (the leaders are men of course).Strange mix of movie cliches with deep wishes from the PC squad packed in a visually appealing 3D movie.
Lion King with High Tech Plus Tribe Dances---A lion king story modernized with some high tech outfit,injected with some fighting, shooting, and tribe dances.
Why are there so many positive reviews of this movie ?---I watched the movies last night. I have not written a review for a long time but i just wanted to help out my friends here who might be misguided by all the positive reviews here. I love all Marvel movies, they are not Oscar winners but my expectation is to be entertained and the most important ingredients have beenLiterally "out of this world" action!Outstanding effectsWell placed humor ( one liners and all - Best example Thor - Ragnarok) Overall entertainmentThis movie fails on all this. Its a dragged storyline, banal dialogues e.g. a fight scene, someone seems to be hurt and the dialogues go like "Hw are youuuu" "I am good, and you" "I am good too" "Let's go". Taken straight from a "Learn English conversation in 5 minutes" Chapter IOkay special effects, nothing special,lets say 20 percent of normal Marvel extravaganzas.The story line is weak and goes round and round and round...No menacing bad guy. The potentially menacing one had a lesser role to play.Very stupid and misplaced one liners, completely out of the blues some of them. All in all; i am giving it a 4 , but it could be 5 or 6 if expectations are lowered but it is certainly not the Marvel that we know.
Really good movie. Good story, lots of fun. This is what DC is missing.
This is definitely one of Marvel's best because the story is compelling and the characters are well developed. Black Panther and his friends and family must defend themselves and their homeland of Wakanda from the clutches of Klau (Andy Serkis) and Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Not only is the lead actor great as T'Challa/Black Panther, but the supporting cast does a fine job as well, especially the female actors. T'Challa is surrounded by smart, strong women. Marvel seems to break its villain curse with Klau and especially Killmonger. Killmonger is very well developed and even sympathetic at times, despite his villainy. He sort of reminded me of Tom Hiddleston's Loki. The action scenes and special effects are outstanding. Highly recommended if you enjoy comic book movies.
Overrated and overhyped. Definitely avoid. Watch on redbox if you must.
The reviews for _Black Panther_ are all essentially saying the same thing: This is a great movie because it's so different from anything we've seen before, not just in the MCU but in the superhero genre overall, the villain is fantastic and _Black Panther_ is just a new and totally innovative film. Allow me to disagree (almost) entirely. _Black Panther_ is a great film, not because it breaks the mould, but because Marvel Studios has a successful pattern and _Black Panther_ adheres to it completely. Obviously the importance of a lead who is not just black but actually African is not to be understated, we have the least white cast of any superhero movie to date and they absolutely killed it, all very important socio-political stuff, to be sure. But the bones of _Black Panther_, the plot, the script, the events, the turns, all of that, it's a carbon copy of what's worked 17 times before. It works again, don't get me wrong, _Black Panther_ truly was an experience, both important and fantastic, but to say it re-invented the wheel here, is, to me, an outright lie._Final rating:★★★? - I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
Pale addition to Marvel universe....---I saw the trailer for this latest addition to the Marvel universe, I wasn't impressed. A friend wanted to see it and I thought I would give it a shot. The director/writer pulled out the Marvel hero playbook/check list and stock piled all the clichéd traits/story plots for a "compelling" story but as any "good" cook knows, having the right ingredients doesn't guarantee a great meal. There are many fine actors in this piece, including Chadwick as the hero-guy. BUT, being a good actor doesn't mean you have the ability to carry a film as a lead. Hollywood of old used to call it the "it" factor, a better word would be charisma. Jordan as the heavy does have the "it" factor, which is not good for the film to have the villain with more than the hero.This film was simply BORING. Half way through I felt relief because I thought we were nearing the end, but it was when the hero was seemingly defeated so I was painfully reminded we were only in the last half of the 2nd act. ARG! I was not engaged with the characters, except the villains. Bad for the audience and the film. Lots of moments for emotional peaks in the story that some how fall short... thus unsatisfying. The "humour" falls flat. I am sure an actor with the proven chops of a Robert Downey could have made them work but in the hands of the director the actors did not seem to reach their full potential. Forest Whitaker gave a very over the top performance, a sin for any actor, getting caught at acting. I could go on and on with trivial bits of annoyance like lines spoken as there being no better sunsets as seen in the hero's isolationist nation... I guess a sunset off the Fiji coast pales by comparison???
