Black Panther (2018)
King T'Challa returns home from America to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. 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.
Yawn. Poorly Filmed Snooze Fest.
Self-important, over-dramatic, uninspired.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
Unshakable, witty and deeply felt, the film will be paying emotional dividends for a long, long time.
Wow wow wow ! What I am really seeing on the first few pages of the review thread of this film. So many negative reviews and most of them coming from a viewpoint that the film has been overrated by critics. Seriously ! when you buy a ticket, you never really ask a critic for consideration. Sometimes you enjoy even the worst movie in theater. Judging on the basis of Critics's opinions seems dumb and totally childish. Anyways this is my opinion. I recently watched the film and to be really frank, had not really bothered about the reviews. I would have watched anyway even if they were negative.Like all Marvel Superhero films, Black Panther follows the traditional route of Good Vs Evil but with style and substance. It's not a flawless film. The pace dips many times in between and the editing could have been crisper. The CGI also looks unimpressive at many places. But this film truly belongs to its actors. Each and everyone of them is an absolute marvel on Screen.However, the two actors although very good and performed extremely well didn't leave a lasting Impression I was expecting throughout. Chadwik Boseman (Black Panther) and Letitia Wright (Shuri). The latter's performance has been applauded like crazy and I found her overrated. Don't even understand how she's given more Importance that Okoye and Nokia who were far better etched characters than her. Anyways Micheal Jordan is simply superb as KillMonger. Hope he now has understood that he suits the image of a larger than life supervillian than playing a dumb Johnny Storm in fantastic four series. I also felt they could have avoided Morgan Freeman's Ross character as he barely has much to do. The action sequences, fights are another highlight. The choreography is simply stunning. For me the stars of the show are Danai Gurira as Okoye and Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia. Both are extemely brilliant actresses. For the previous, she has such a commanding presence on screen and her dialogue delivery is top-notch. Although she remains tough, she comes alive even in small emotional bits. The Latter nailed the part of Nakia with great balance of vulnerability and emotions. Both the characters stay with you even after the screening has concluded. I really enjoyed the film, although this is not a perfect film by all means, but its a deeply satisfying superhero experience.
I just can't believe positive reviews this movie got. I think I never watched such a bad, stupid and boring movie. It's just unwatchable.
This movie had me cringeing with embarrassment for everyone involved, and anyone who rated it highly. If Hollywood is so keen to avoid the "racist" label, let's have a black superman, or Batman or whatever, there's no shortage of talent that could fill those shoes (Idris Elba is my choice). But to create a whole movie purporting to be a superhero movie, but starts off telling us how much better the world would be without 19thC European colonialism is a new low. This movie is so keen to be nice to Africans, it's actually creepy. I doubt you'd see Prince Charles and Prince William brawling in public for the throne, but there you go. I paid to be entertained, but for the first time ever I left a cinema halfway through a movie, fuguring the bus ride home would be more fun. It was.
Fine acting and pretty technicolor but this makes me doubt IMBD's rating system. The plot was so trite and had zero sense of jeapordy. Made it impossible to really care what happened. Such a shame as it obviously had a big budget. If you're looking for a good super hero movie go watch Man of Steel, Justice League, Dr Strange or both Deadpool's. This one could have been great but definitely fell short for me.
