This movie was super sophisticated. Rich on some many elements. I loved it. No spoiling the movie. A review is a review. Focusing in the movie.
I actually am old enough to have seen Ishstar with Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman when it opened. It is regarded as the worst movie ever put on a big screen. That's saying a lot considering Ed Wood's offerings and the string of 1950s movies that followed. This one is awful, for a lot of reasons, the biggest concern is the non stop nonsensical talking that makes My Dinner With Andre look like a nail biter. Avoid. Go out enjoy the evening, buy a good book, and get together with friends. Time better spent.
Leave the kids at home. In fact leave the car, wallet, and your dog, and go for a walk. It will do you better than a two and a half hour talking head marathon.
I absolutely loved this movie. Special effects excellent. Movie plot excellent. Overall Movie Awesome!!!!!! I loved this movie.
I think will very cool having a make Wakanda in Disney World because is a make city like some of the SW imaginary planets.
Sites are reporting a 620% increase in people looking for hotel rooms in Wakanda, I kid you not. The George Carlin maxim applies here. For those of you reading the reviews, Wakanda does not exist. If you believe it does, I have some time share condos in Narnia you have cheap.
Not a date movie. Not entertaining for little kids, and even for an adult, this is too slow and too long. I've seen a Shakespeare soliloquy be more exciting. Sure the CGI is great, but when is it not these days? On a basis of what makes a truly great movie and what elements are to be found on the screen, this is definitely a one star, at best, movie.
Very little in the way of fun for kids. My children were absolutely bored. They would ask when would the grownups stop talking. They actually wanted to leave at parts. This movie is intended for adults who like superheros who talk a lot.
Amazing cast! The story line ans action in the film held my attention the entire time.
Both hero and villain have points on why they do what they do. beautiful shots of Africa, women of power . Best marvel movie.!!!
Apart from the slobbering reviews of endorsement by a single user intent on spamming the entire site I found this movie to be average. If I could rate this show more precisely than our rounded off choices I'd give it a 2.3 on the strength of some of the action at the beginning and for the costume design.
Great movie!!! I just wish I could had seen it in 3-D, 3-D was sold out. But I enjoyed it, and my wife really loved it. But if she kept on saying how kool Black Panther was, I was going to walk out! Just kidding,, I think! Seriously awesome job!
Phenomenal job!! The men in the movie played their part so well,,, and the women were gorgeous and strong! I’m going to see the movie again tomorrow, something I never did before. I just wish it was longer,,, I had to use the bathroom,, and didn’t get up because I was afraid I would miss something.
Very well executed! The details and sophiticated yet subtle history and political messages were spot on. Truly fantastic. (BTW I'm documentary filmmaker with 2 Emmys, so I have some "street cred") Black Panther will be a studied in film schools for a long time. Lighting, costuming, directing all impeccable! Very few Hollywood films put that level of detail and thought into a production. Thank you Ryan Coogler! Plus it's a fun action-packed science fiction/comic flick so you can get your Geek on too!
The best Comic book movie I've every seen.
Gorgeous, well written and performed. One of the best Marvel movies, ever!
Blade was an awesome trilogy. Luke Cage has an edgy feel that draws you in. This has the feel of a convention of out of shape men in suits talking about their products while being half in the bag.
The truth in the superhero world is that at some point, you identify with the hero and believe that in some sense it could be you. The fantasy of a superhero is to be able to boldly stand up, make your voice heard and withstand the assault. This movie leads you to believe you could be an accountant.
I wondered how the newest Avenger character would translate to a starring role. It didn't. Support role at best. The person cast for the role is too stiff and doesn't lead you to believe.
My kids came home and watched Captain America afterwards. They honestly turned and said this is how a superheros movie should be. They were not happy with the latest marvel offering.
If you appreciate craftsmanship like Gone With The Wind, Lord of the Rings, or even the first Matrix, you will find this movie tiresome. It tries to pontificate, then persuade, and eventually gives way to lecturing, but it never entertains. I want to go out for an evening and have a good time and be entertained. This was a waste of my time, money, and effort. The popcorn, though good, was not sufficient in compensating for the defects of the movie.
Comcast owns the movie companies and also bought out Rotten Tomatoes. Don't trust that site for reviews any longer as well.
This movie wishes it were as good as Green Lantern. But alas the concept, the directing, the acting and two and a half hours of blah, blah, blah, make this insufferable. The five star spam bot never speaks of details or gives you insight it just post the same crap on every review. Check the other movies. This site is manipulated by a spam program designed to trick paying customers. Especially, look at coming attractions. Movies that are not even out yet have hundreds of 5 star reviews.
Don't go. It's weak and not worth the money. Wait for Netflix.
This was so not good on so many levels. It was a horrid stereotype for the culture. Living in caves, spears, loin cloth like garb... yet it's side by side with alien level technology...that is kept hidden so they can still get financial assistance. Wow... Section 8, welfare fraud at it's finest. This movie was slooowww and never really gained any momentum. It was about 45 minutes too long. I'm an aging comic fan and didn't see much of the the comic story or character in this version.
I Saw this movie and it had everything. A few jokes, some lessons learned and some harsh reality. I am amused at all the 1 star ratings. Take a look at them, obviously haters, rating the movie a 1 without any backing. Watch the movie, even if you don't to see it in theatre
So funny how you can tell the imposters. This was a great movie. Actually going to see it again tonight with my son, nieces and nephew. Don't be fooled by the haters.
Worth seeing and 2 hours was not too long. African scenes excellent! Sister character fun.
This movie have some art. They really worked hard on every single details from this movie. One star reviews will not take ever and ever the honor from this movie.
I wish they stuck more to the original character, and the original story. This one is terrible.
Whatever happened to the good old days of quality programming like Rocky Horror Picture show or Xanadu? This one wishes it were at least a shadow.
There is some lame spambot posting five star reviews with only one line telling you his vague, non specific review. Pay it no mind. It is an autonomous program designed to promote movies. It is devoid of any real knowledge of the movie, and offers only vague comments that could be applied to almost any movie. Amazing, Fantastic. Best Movie of the year. All these comments indicate it has no actual intellect or ability to understand what it's doing. It's just a dumb program spamming endlessly. If it were a human, pity them.
The ratings on this site are pretty accurate. Same goes for theater goers. I recently attended and more than half the seats were empty. I would say closer to 85% actually. About an hour into the movie, you're asking yourself, should I add to that percentage. The answer is yes. try the next cinema.
I was so looking forward to seeing this, but I sad to say, I regret that optimism. Superhero movies can be the highlights of the year. A good movie can be seen over and over again, and you feel great each time. Not this one. This is a one time is enough movie.
Only 43% think this is a good movie. That puts it into the Ishtar category. Don't mess with the original stories and slap some twisted rewrite onto the screen expecting people to like it. They did it with this one, Wrinkle in Time, even the Narnia chronicles. Stick with the story people liked and you can't go wrong.
I don't think this was very good. At least the Green Lantern had some funny moments and didn't take itself seriously, this one leaves an odd feeling.
As with other hyped movies the public fell all over themselves to see this like the herd animals they are. When you expect to be entertained to a level of quality that isn't fulfilled you feel cheated out of your money and the experience.
“The ratings on this site are pretty accurate. Same goes for theater goers. I recently attended and more than half the seats were empty. I would say closer to 85% actually. About an hour in, you're asking yourself, if you should add to that percentage.” Because you post all day long.
