Black Panther: Wakanda Forever | Ratings & Reviews

Highly entertaining sequel is both a moving and sensitive farewell to the late Chadwick Boseman and the best MCU film since Avengers: Endgame, if not quite one of the franchise’s very best.

"The movie doesn’t have the classic comic-book pow of Black Panther, and it’s easily 20 minutes too long. Yet Wakanda Forever has a slow-burn emotional suspense. Once the film starts to gather steam, it doesn’t let up."


"A worthy continuation."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A drab, crushing disappointment..."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"The franchise loses its beloved star, but finds elegant, affecting new ways to expand the MCU."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"As with the last film, there are bold extravagant gestures of spectacle, while Wright, Coel, Bassett, Gurira and Thorne all supply fierce performances..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A big disappointment."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"There’s more than enough wit, beauty, and imagination to Wakanda Forever to outweigh its weaknesses."


"Weak action and forced MCU subplots keep Wakanda Forever from greatness, but its emotional undercurrents run deeper than any Marvel movie."


"The sad reality is that the show must go on, and without (Chadwick Boseman) it’s just more of the same."

Time MagazineTime Magazine

"Thrilling adventure, visual wonder and worthy tribute..."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"The movie isn’t always on such sure footing. But that’s almost appropriate: a messier movie trying to reckon with a messier range of feelings."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"(A) messier if seldom less engrossing follow-up..."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"(Wakanda Forever) is often quite thoughtful in its exploration of grief, but it struggles to overcome what (Boseman's) loss means to the future of this series."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"Wakanda Forever is overlong, a little unwieldy..."

Associated PressAssociated Press

"Coogler has given audiences, and the studio, a solidly and gracefully executed dive into a Wakanda for right now."


"Wakanda Forever lovingly honours Chadwick Boseman, but fails itself..."

The Globe and MailThe Globe and Mail

"Some will no doubt miss the tight focus and energy of Black Panther. This sequel is more scattered..."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"A tapestry of grief laced with routine action..."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"Wakanda Forever solidifies Black Panther as Marvel’s richest and most high-quality franchise."

New York PostNew York Post

"Funny, clever and heartbreaking.."
