FIRST REVIEW: Black Panther makes Marvel matter all over again

07 February 2018

It's as if everyone enlisted to bring the project to life understood the magnitude of what Black Panther, the first comic-based studio movie with a black hero at the center since 1998's Blade, would represent. The first critic reviews have been released online this morning and it's safe to say that there is a positive word of mouth surrounding the critics.

"Black Panther" is the antidote to such films, though.

Black Panther is released in United Kingdom cinemas on February 13, 2018.

Michael B. Jordan: 'Black Panther shows black kids they can be superheroes'

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film has been hailed as a fresh superhero take and the most political film yet from the house of Marvel Studios as it addresses issues like identity, diversity, inclusion and history. Your thoughts on the Black Panther suit? Not only does Black Panther work as a superhero film, but also a narrative about what it means to be the most powerful nation on Earth.

The average rating for Black Panther right now is an 8.6/10, while Thor: Ragnarok's score was 7.5/10 and Spider-Man: Homecoming's score was 7.7/10 in comparison. She broke out in a big way back in 2014 with her role as Zoey Johnson on the hit ABC comedy Black-ish, and in just the last few weeks saw the launch of her very own spin-off series, Grown-ish, on Freeform. The action in Black Panther includes lots of hand-to-hand combat, much of it taking place in a sacred pool-the editing of these scenes could be cleaner, they give the movie a nice jolt of organic energy even so. Just putting that group together for one film deserves accolades. (The effervescent British import Wright and actress/playwright Gurira, especially, feel like they could easily hold their own films; it's hard to remember the last time any females, let alone women of color, even came close to creating such fully formed roles in a cineplex tentpole.) Martin Freeman is great too as Central Intelligence Agency agent Everett Ross, a Bisquick-blond Boy Scout who spends about 90 percent of the movie just looking awed to be there.

But as he ascends to the throne to become king, T'Challa will learn that it's not easy to progress to an unforeseen future because the fear of change could have an adverse affect on the country. "So I'd be really interested to see, you know, what kind of king he is with experience and how that affects his performance in the stories". Audiences have always liked their superheroes to at least believe in their fantasy world as much as we have to.

Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead, All Eyez on Me) cuts an imposing figure in the front left as Okoye, the leader of the Dora Milaje.

"When Black Panther works, it's thrillingly alive".

There's going to be trouble, of course, and it arrives in the form of Michael B. Jordan's villainously complex Erik Killmonger, who storms into Wakanda for revenge and something more.

England defeat Italy in NatWest 6 Nations opener
The scrum-half was distributing the ball from the base of a ruck when he was tackled by an opposing player and went down in agony. Ben Youngs , England's scrum-half, leaves the field on a stretcher after injuring his knee in the victory over Italy .

It is after this event where Killmonger is introduced and Ulysses Klaue (played with devilish glee by Andy Serkis) a villainous arms deal first explored in Avengers: Age of Ultron returns. If we start talking about sequels - if we do four of them, two of them, three of them - I just want them all to be special like this one.
