A giddily enjoyable new Marvel superhero movie as Black Panther returns to his homeland to succeed to the throne.
In the latest Marvel superhero movie, T’Challa / Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) returns to his isolated yet technologically advanced African nation, Wakanda, to succeed to the throne. But his position as rightful heir is challenged and he must rely on his closest, most trusted advisors to prevent his nation from falling into conflict. Exciting young director Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station) delivers this funny and thrilling film.
(2018 USA 134 mins)
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 … But one of Black Panther’s greatest triumphs is to make you forget the barrier-breaking significance of its mere existence. By the time the climactic battle has broken out – set a world away from the customary razed metropolis of modern comic-book films – you’re too busy marvelling at its bottomless invention, its big-hearted verve, to truly consider the game-changing revolution playing out in front of you. Long live the king. Jimi Famurewa, Empire
