    I haven't seen too many combat action scenes in the trailers or commercials I have seen but yeah it does look like the fights will be lackluster. Meh, hopefully the rest of the film like others have stated will be enough to make it a great film.

    I just hope it lives up to the hype. Plus it’s been the only marvel movie I’ve ever been excited for.

    BP=9.5/10
    Trust me fans of BP and the BP comics, this shit was craaaaay-z listen to ya boy. Thinking this movie would never get made to this level.

    Wakanda=Insane I mean i was lucky that my friend took me to this early screening but when you first wrap your head around these visuals its like What in thee fuck. Peeps in there was damn near in tears, everything meshed well. The tech, the tribes, the African traditions just beautiful, like 1st trip there and you marrying your Wakandian princess lol. Now its not a basic comic movie how its presented. Most comic movies want us to suspend belief and try hard to make the world/environment feel real but BP you feel that realness!!

    This cast=Amazing, now Chadwick we knew had the goods but lemme tell you Michael B as Killmonger!!!! they changed a few things w/his origin minor stuff but its his Movie co staring everybody else cept for Shuri, she's like that *that chick* but back to Killmonger.

    Black peeps will def relate to Killmonger even if they never read a BP comic the way he is presented in this Michael B just kills it. You totally feel him and his motives.

    Dora Milaje=perfect, they are unfuckwitable like they should be.

    You could try to find bad things about the movie but for me there was none, its IMHO top 3 MCU w/o ?uestion.

    Post End Scene
    There 2 but BP comic fans be prepared cause they do something different with white wolf, so i dunno how that gonna work but im sure itll be fine lol.

    Just back from Black Panther, and man that was a great movie.

    It's a definitely cracked my top 3 as far as MCU movies go at the very least (though it definitely has its fair share of problems, and I also expect that to change once Infinity War rolls around). I'll post more about it later, but if there's one positive that comes to mind, is that the soundtrack was incredible.

    I've criticised the MCU in the past for having rather forgettable soundtracks barring the Avengers theme, but this is the one major exception. Hopefully, IW can keep the trend going.

    Double post but will use the space anyway.

    Movie did not disappoint. Really different kind of Marvel movie because it had emotional moments. It brought wakanda to real life and sticked with the panther spirit legend.

    Chadwick really delivers as a dramatic actor. Michael is underrated. Made you feel sympy with his character. Great casting as well.

    Also love the formal clothing. Angela can still get it.

    Can't wait for tony, shuri and rocket interact in infinity war.

    And lastly, white wolf.

    Had some minor gripes but tolerable. 9/10.

    (Ugh. This thread is still grayed out like it has no new posts because of all of RockBogart's posts got nuked? That's still annoying.)

    I won't be seeing Black Panther until this Sunday, at earliest, but I figured I could just pop in to do a Debbie Downer safety reminder to just be aware of your surroundings this weekend while going to it. Personally, I still fully expect there to be some type of Aurora-esque incident with regards to this movie unfortunately, especially given what just happened in Florida yesterday and mass-shooters tending to get be the type of people emboldened by other similar events to enact their murderous narcissism; I also wouldn't be surprised if there was just some more "minor" shooting incident between really ghetto (black) people either to be honest. This is one of those times where I expect the worst yet very much would like to be wrong.

    Regardless, stay safe and have fun while watching the movie if you do go see it this weekend.

    *snip*

    I don't remember where I heard it but someone described it as being Marvel's version of James Bond, I thought that was an accurate description.

    B+.
    I want to see it again.

    As much as I don't really like James Bond personally for the most part, that's good to hear, especially since it's probably the closest a black person (or, Hades, a non-white person) will ever get to playing James Bond anytime soon if ever. :coffee:

    Saw the movie tonight. I haven't seen the theatre that packed since The Force Awakens. Never thought I'd live to see a two term black president and a big budget black movie that is sold out.

    @The Furious One I watched Stuckmann's review. I can't disagree with anything he said. In fact, I'm basically in 100% agreement with him.

    Didn't love love it, but it was good.
    Killmonger is great, but his ending was a bit weak and the whole Black Panther legacy seems pretty fucked. Supposedly we'll hear more about the legacy in future movies but yeah Killmonger kinda had a point.

    I love Martin Freeman, but ... not sure what he really added other than being awesome Martin Freeman/MCU-tie-in-of-the-day.

    Seemed like a waste of Klaw, but OK.

    The Regal Cinemas combo pack with tin popcorn container is pretty tight.

    I want a baby rhino.

    I agree Freeman's character seemed rather redundant, he literally plays the tourist.

    I'm not familiar with Klaw's character but I liked how he was used, Killmonger was underused. His ending was perfect just how they got there with the fight was disappointing IMO.

    Thinking back, a lot of Marvel's movies underuse their great villains, GoTG 1 comes to mind, lame ones like Ultron get a lot of screen time and he was just playing Tony Stark.

    I just got back from BP.

    Pros

    The design of Wakanda mixing African and futuristic elements. All the costumes were beautiful.

    -Great actors.

    It has a very different vibe than most MCU efforts since it is basically a king who moonlights as a superhero. It felt like 2/3 drama with 1/3 standard superheroics.

    Many cool female characters who were used with good balance and didnt make the male characters look weak

    --The music. At a certain point , I noticed the African styled music transitioned to hip hop when a certain thing happens in the film.

    MB Jordan as Killmonger. At truly sympathetic villain and one of the few in MCU that I almost rooted for.


    Cons

    The action sequences were good, but not the best ever. I think Okoye had better fight scenes than T'Challa

    Some of the greenscreen/cgi was underwhelming.

    IMO Killmonger was underused. There is a almost 40 some minutes where he isnt onscreen in the first half.

    Ross felt tacked on mostly.


    Overall: A Great movie. I'd put it on equal footing with Thor Ragnarok
    8.5/10

    I wish Marvel still did the 10-15 minute shorts for the home releases for their movies. I want to see one with Shuri. Most of her scenes were hilarious.

    Killmonger should have gotten more screentime.
    I think his character would have benefited by having more scenes of him to flesh him out and maybe see him actually rule as king. I think it would have cemented him if they did that. I feel I wasn't given enough.

    Man, what can I say? That movie was a breathe of fresh air.

    First movie I've ever been to, where the audience gave a round of applause when the credits rolled.

    Like others have said, it didn't have the best action scenes for a marvel movie, but the action was secondary to the story.

    Everything else, actors, music, scenery....the overall atmosphere was fantastic

    9.5/10
  • WellmanWellman Joined: Posts: 4,133 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG

    Just saw it and damn fine film. I agree some of the fights weren't great but overall it was a awesome film.
    The only flaw being both Killmonger and Klaw both died. They were both great villains with Klaw being so fun on screen I felt bad when he got killed since that means no more Serkis in the MCU besides maybe motion capture.


    Ross felt tacked on mostly

    And thus was true to the character's original depiction minus more humiliation. Although the M'Baku scene with him was hilarious.

    I loved the hell out of that movie. It was just different from the Marvel movies that have been out where some dude has gotten some massive fire power to destroy the world/universe and is now blowing up a city at the end and the hero has to stop him.

    Killmonger IMO is currently my pick as the best MCU villain to date mainly because of how real he felt I understood why he was what he was and couldn't cast any blame on him. In fact, you can actually view the side of Wakanda as the villains because of Killmongers perspective being understandable.

    The whole scenery, the language, and the actors were all top notch. The whole culture of Wakanda felt so real and so interesting that I couldn'

    My complaint about the movie was the whole fight scene in that VR train station area. The CG was just fucked up and ugly looking.

    I'm giving this a 9/10 for me.

    After a decade, Loki has finally lost his title.

    There were a handful of moments in this movie where I was like "oh right, he's a superhero too". Those were my least favorite parts.

    Shuri is a qt 3.14. Hope to see her in Avengers.

    Bond-style Marvel is a pretty accurate description of it. Watched it yesterday and the hype was real. 8.5/10 imo.
