Disappointing. I expected much more from this film, as it was being touted as one of the best superhero movies of all time. It's not. Don't get me wrong, it's a good film and Chadwick is going to win Oscars; he's that fantastic of an actor. But some of the secondary characters were terrible, the villain is a little all over the map, the secondary villain just becomes an inept clown. He eludes Wakanda for 30 years and he's that pathetic? The final fight was rather poorly done. It looked like a scene from the Tron sequel, and not in a good way. Some of the CGI looked amazing, and some looked rather poor for a MCU film.

I had high expectations for this movie with the reviews and high amount of money made at the box office, but I was extremely confused. I found this movie lacking and didn't really keep me entertained. Most of all I disliked the way all this social justice being interjected into media. White people being called colonists and being basically called the devil. The world has always been about the conquerers and the conquered. Just tired of all the bull being thrown by everyone.

Not a good movie, we watched it for 50 minuets and just could not find anything interesting about it so turned it off and will return the DVD back to the library this morning. I told my girlfriend that we are too old for this type of movie, maybe the younger people would find it more interesting. Guess we are not into comic book movies. However I did wonder when we got it if I would find anything interesting about the movie and almost turned it back to the library without spending any time watching it. My gut feelings were right, bad movie for us, I mean really bad.

Good writing, social relevance & acting elevates it above its 1966 comic-book origins. Great costumes and set designs compensate for the sometimes video-game-like special effects.

Another impressive graphic novel character made into another well produced and thought out Marvel film.
Found the background or "origin" story was interesting, beautifully shot, well acted and had some depth.
Was not disappointed when I went to the theatre to see this gem.

I didn't understand much of the movie due to the actors' accents.

Another superhero movie, with a more colourful background than most. Wakanda as described in the comic book makes little sense historically, politically, scientifically, economically or in any other way, but that's the way it is, and the film makers had no control over it. However, things they did have control over -- the story, the dialogue, the CGI, and most of the acting -- are also bad. (See attached video.) Don't get me wrong; it's not terrible, and there were a few interesting and exciting parts. But if this were the origin story of another random Marvel character, say Quicksilver, and set in a hidden land in the mountains of Switzerland, it might be easier to gauge the quality of this film.

This is a movie to watch for its set design, amazing costumes, and worldbuilding. Wakanda was created as an amazing place that I wish existed (which you can't really say for things like the Marvel Cinematic Universe New York, for example).

Black Panther also had probably the best villain of a Marvel movie so far. Killmonger as played by Michael B. Jordan was sympathetic even as he was misguided, and I agree very strongly with the connections being made between him and Magneto as great villains. The supporting cast was amazing, but I wish they'd had a script that was a bit more biting and a story that was a little less by the numbers.

I wasn't blown away by the CG, and the fights all have the weightless lack of meaning that superhero movies tend to have when everything happens in a computer. Overall though, it was a good Marvel movie.
