Most big studio fantasies take you out for a joy ride only to hit the same exhausted story and franchise-expanding beats. Not this one.

The intriguing thing about Black Panther is that it doesn't look like a superhero film - more a wide-eyed fantasy romance: exciting, subversive and funny.

We didn't know we'd been yearning for it until it arrived, but now that it's here it's unmistakable that the wait for a film like "Black Panther" has been way longer than it should have been.

With uncanny timing, Marvel takes its superheroes into a domain they've never inhabited before and is all the better for it in Black Panther.

A giddily enjoyable, convention-bucking 134-minute epic that somehow manages to simultaneously be a comic-book blockbuster, a pulsating espionage thriller and an Afro-futurist family saga.

Black Panther excels in presenting a unique central character with a memorable supporting cast. The soundtrack/score is without question, one of the better ones of Marvel's. The Killmonger serves as a middling villain - he's very compelling but a little cliched in motives. Andy Serkis, also a highlight.

Marvel's history of diversity and inclusiveness shines in the Black Panther. So when I heard that Marvel was releasing a Black Panther movie I had grave doubts. I found myself thinking "DON'T MESS THIS UP!" So here we are, one month after it's release and the Black Panther is still screening an garnering praise. Well deserved praise. Is this a...

In general you might say there are two ways to review a movie. In its cultural and historical context, and as a movie. Often it’s hard to disentangle the two. It can take years. Decades. Take Wonder Woman, a perfectly good action movie, that falls apart in its final act, with a pretty silly villain. A solid three-star movie, that entertains and offers...

Yep yep yep another marvel masterpiece, they know how to entertain and delight. I mean it was 'avengers' universe I was so going to see this even if the reviews had been rubbish. It deserves every accolade it has gotten. Its so stunning just the sheer visual world of Wakanda is enticing. The male characters are all very fine but this is a film where the...

Black panther is the 18th film in the marvel cinematic universe, and once again marvel hits home. It has a stellar cast with all actors fitting their roles perfectly, and some deep underlying messages that all make for an amazing experience.

It's thought-provoking, action packed and unique in themes & style - however lacking an intriguing plot, holding it from being a spectacle.

There was a lot of hype about this movie before I saw it, so expectations were high. For the most part it lived up to them - the movie was well-acted, had good action scenes, and beautiful scenery. The stereotypical story-lines and over-the-top tropes were typical of a superhero movie, so I can't hold those against this film.

Just another Marvel superhero blockbuster. Fun action sequences. Michael B. Jordan is great as Erik Killmonger, one of the best MCU antagonists and a far more interesting character than T'Challa (Black Panther). I enjoyed Andy Serkis' goofy performance as Ulysses Klaue. The plot takes a while to kick in. Just a personal preference, but the funnier, less...

There are two ways of looking at “Black Panther”: as a Marvel / big studio movie and as a social-cultural event. I’ll ignore the latter aspect in this review. As a movie in the Marvel superhero genre, “Black Panther” is disappointing given all the hype that’s accompanied it. True, it’s got several things going for it. To be fair, the first three-quarters...
