A highly racist and offensive film full of racial stereotyping! - Black Panther review by CS

Spoiler Alert
16/06/2018

As a person of mixed race heritage, I was extremely embarrassed, shocked and disappointed watching this film. I'm unclear as to what the agenda of the films makers is, but this film comes across as incredibly racist and offensive and is full of racial stereotyping. I'm presuming that the intention was to show a Black Superhero and promote a positive image for the Black Community, especially in America. However what the makers have actually achieved, is the total opposite, a film that offers numerous stereotypes of both Black and White people, makes numerous offensive and racist comments towards white people, constantly accuses white people of being oppressive and basically promotes the opposite of equality, respect and freedoms for all the peoples of the world! The Black Panthers were an Afro-American Terrorist organisation operating in the 60's and 70's, and to my mind this is exactly the kind of negative belief system that this film so wrongly promotes. If I were any of the actors appearing in this film I would be incredibly embarrassed, especially if I were one of the white actors such as Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis, but this does no credit to the black actors either such as Forest Whitaker, I personally would distance myself from this film as I feel it could do more harm than good to an actors future career! If this film were turned the other way around becoming a white persons film, made by white people, with white actors, it would be panned and seen as incredibly racist and offensive, which it is, regardless of what colour or race the makers or actors are!

NOT a Superhero /Avengers Movie at all. - Black Panther review by porky

Spoiler Alert
17/06/2018

Pretty well bored me to tears. Forgot I was watching a Marvel Movie as It just seemed like some old style Tarzan Movie.

and Very Little on the Super hero front. just a lot of Men being Men and fighting over very little.

Basically ,an African Super Rich,Super Advanced, Superpower in Hiding and Selfishly completely Ignoring the Starvation and War on their doorsteps in other parts of Africa . Far more worried about loosing the smallest piece of their wealth via a Stolen Museum Hammer Head than caring for the Billions dying all around them in Famine and War .

Hideously vacuous Yet Horribly Racist,

A Super Wealthy ,Super Advanced , Super Power ,But ride about on Rhino and use Spears ,wearing Lion Cloths and Wrestle to the Death on Cliff tops in Hand to Hand combat . All Because they are African ....REALLY? ....so not Very Super Advanced then ? :/

Easily the WORST Entry in the Marvel Franchise. personally I wish I hadn't bothered .

all hype - Black Panther review by ES

Spoiler Alert
26/06/2018

I was looking forward to this having seen exciting trailers but I was very dissapointed.

I don't know who the audience for this film is,it's not really sci fi,it's not really marvel and it's not very entertaining.

It makes casual racist comments about black and white groups without explanation ot context. My friend managed

to nod off half wayy through,says it all really.

The King is Dead, Long Live the King - Black Panther review by DS

Spoiler Alert
26/05/2019

I have to say I approach this movie from not being a Marvel fan of any sort and not really caring about the extended universe, the storylines or the original comics. Some of this behemoth of a franchise I enjoyed others I did not. Thinking back I clearly preferred standalone stories that focus on a few characters and I care less about the massive three hours trials and tribulations of everyone that was ever created in the comics.

So as a ‘virtue signalling soy boy’ apparently, this film should have blown my socks off, well parts of it did, parts of it did not. I think in all honestly once the credits had ended, and of course I had to watch to the end because of the various little scenes you know are going to pop-up, I was left maybe unsatisfied. Entertained but unsatisfied.

The overall story is appealing, about Africans, in Africa, hidden away from the colonisation and exploitation by Europe and becoming advanced beyond the rest of the world but keeping themselves deliberately isolated. So there’s a message there and a lot of wishful thinking but hey how many times have the USA won the World War Two on their own and the Vietnam War? So there is absolutely no quibble here and nor should there be.

The usual Marvel problems pop up flat cardboard characters and a simplistic storyline that goes on too long. Giving a big window to an African-centric story is interesting in itself and kept my attention whereas if it were a standard white American hero story my interest would have waned having seen it so many times before. It did annoy me that this African nation, hidden away, developed a massive, technological, advanced society that looked a bit like the USA including the shopping and wandering about in the streets smiling and buying things…hmmm not exactly imagination gone wild in those scenes.

We have been here before though, many, many times. This is any old story, really old, the king dies, long live king, someone evil claims the thone deposing the king, the king wins back with allies. Nothing new.

The huge problems with my opinion of Marvel movies were still here. A long extended hero versus villain fight that I disengaged from after about a minute and a massive over CGIed battle where it looked like no one was really getting hurt because….well because it looks like CGI.

The acting varies but the good outways the mediocre and no one was so jarring it took me out of the film some of the dialogue is a bit hokey and cornball and pacing varies in part with some expository linking scenes skipping along and others just plodding along to the point where you could be forgiven for looking at your watch. The look and design of the film in Wankada is sumptuous and clearly some thought has gone into how an African nation left to itself would develop and look, although being isolated from the world, as I have said before, would they really go for shiny skyscrapers and the capitalistic wandering around rows of shops buying things model? There could have been other ways to go here.

Unfortunately, I have the sinking feeling that yet again this is another Marvel film I watched from start to end, would not watch again and I will mostly forget. Shame really the ball has been fumbled here

Critic review

Black Panther review by Mark McPherson - Cinema Paradiso

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe enters its tenth year, there’s an obvious questioning if superhero films are growing stale or too formulaic. The reason that the MCU continues to lead the pack is that they pursue new and fresher avenues of comic book films, dabbling in everything from space operas to heist pictures. On this basis, Black Panther stands out as one of their greatest, taking the character into realms of African royalty, Afrofuturism, and colonialism. It’s far more than just another superhero flick with a black glaze.

T’challa (Chadwick Boseman) makes for a unique and flawed hero. After the events of Captain America: Civil War, he must now ascend to the role of king of his utopia of Wakanda. To the rest of the world, Wakanda is just a lesser African country, but hidden behind a holographic curtain exists a thriving city, bound by old customs and designed with futuristic tech. They have spaceships and energy weapons but also a tradition of dueling for the throne and partaking in paranormal plants for spiritual visions. T’challa has a lot to live up to with his people, namely deciding what place they should take on the international stage. Should they remain hidden or share their tech with the world?

For the Wakandan outsider Erik Stevens (Michael B. Jordan), the answer is clear on his path for revenge. He knows the true history of Wakanda’s royalty and it’s a messy one of murder and betrayal. Having grown up on the mean streets, Erik bitterly asks where Wakanda was while the rest of the world was suffering. It’s a fair point and one that T’challa takes under serious consideration. It’s only when Erik throws on the villain costume of Killmonger and wants to use that future tech to enslave the world that T’challa starts fighting back. Even if his crusade eventually leads to a big battle of energy weapons and armored rhinos, he’s by far the most sympathetic and interesting villain of Marvel’s movies. Erik’s arc is so engaging that it’s no surprise the simpler villain of the weapons dealer Klaue (Andy Serkis) makes an early exit.

Let’s also not forget T’challa’s female army led by the likes of his current lover Okoye (Danai Gurira) and former lover Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o). They are more than capable of holding their own in a fight and get in just as many witty jabs, as well as a great use of a weave during a fight. Also aiding in the battles is technology expert Shuri (Letitia Wright), a wiz with Vibranium and eager to partner with the following CIA agent Everett Ross (Martin Freeman). Though Ross can’t do much with lack of Vibranium weapons and little more than regulations to keep the bad guys in line, he has flight experience, giving him something to do when the big battle is underway. That being said, he will be brought down a peg when addressing Wakandan warriors, not realizing he’s talking to men that could eat him for breakfast (if they weren’t vegetarians, of course).

The film was directed by Ryan Coogler, having come a long way from the more intimate films of Fruitvale Station and Creed. His direction presents a number of different genres, from classic tales of feuding kingdoms to sci-fi plotting of that pesky Vibranium tech to James Bond style action sequences across Korea. His style is striking, designing Wakanda as an otherworldly fusion of artistic African design and slick high-tech functionality; a highlight is the Vibranium lab that looks like a cross between an art installation and an open office. He also doesn’t shy away from the more uncomfortable aspects, from Erik’s bitterness toward colonialism to T’challa’s political questioning of desires that are not fully sound. Too deep for a superhero film? Not with Coogler’s honesty and bluntness to pack a bigger punch.

Black Panther is the type of superhero film that Marvel should be pursuing as it crosses a decade of movies and wants to continue on for another. It challenges, creates, and restructures the perceptions of culture, lineage, and politics with an invigorating degree of excitement, yet still makes time for a rousing fist-fight of clashing Vibranium armor. There is so much offered outside of just being Marvel’s first black-led superhero film, adding more than color to the cinematic franchise and being more than just a bridge film for Avengers: Infinity War.
