When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war. Written by Editor

Goofs

The mixture of languages and occasional use of single words can be very odd. For example, when Zuri congratulates T'Challa, the latter responds with "mzuri" which is Kiswahili for "good." See more »

N'Jadaka: Tell me a story, baba.
N'Jobu: What story, my son?
N'Jadaka: About home.
N'Jobu: Millions of years ago, a meteorite made of vibranium, the strongest substance in the universe, struck the continent of Africa, affecting the plant life around it. And when the time of men came, five tribes settled on it and called it Wakanda. The tribes lived in constant war with each other, until a warrior shaman received a vision from the panther goddess Bast, who led him to the Heart-Shaped Herb, a plant that granted him ...

Did critics falsely over-rate this movie because of the mostly Black cast?
3 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

I told my daughter that I thought "Black Panther" was a typical average comic book movie.

She disagreed.

That's fine.

And that's the same about every movie or TV show out there. Some movies rub you the right way, and most movies just rub you wrong.

While watching "Black Panther" I truly forgot that 99% of the casts were African Americans. It's no big deal to me. It does't matter to me.

I only cared about the story. And the story was the typical lame comic book story. Actually, the story was kind of stupid. But no more stupid than "Captain America Civil War".

Yeah, a lot of things don't make sense. But it's fiction and comic book stuff. I don't let the little things bother me.

In conclusion, the critics over hyped this movie big time. It's not as horrible as some people say, and it is absolutely not anywhere near as great as some people say.

Do not compare this movie to The Dark Knight trilogy.

And please do not compare this movie to "The Godfather" or "Shawshank Redemption".

Don't even mention Black Panther in the same book as Godfather or Shawshank.

Black Panther is just another mediocre comic book movie with a fairly stupid plot.
