Black Panther Reviews Are In, Here's What The Critics Are Saying

Black Panther is one of the most anticipated Marvel films of the year, almost selling out nationwide for the February 16 opening.

After the death of his father, T'Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king.

The Avengers have been part of the popular Marvel Studios franchise since 2012 and each film seems to grow bigger and bigger and introduce us to more characters from that comic book world. Far more risky, though, is the aptly named militant Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), who looks to Vibranium to power a full-scale global race war.

McDonald's organization MACCLID (McDonald & Associates Collective Collaboration-Light into Darkness) will host the screening February 15 at Regal McCain Mall.

"I'm really nervous now because the work is done and now we're just showing it and hoping people are into it".

MACCLID is a partner of the Victory Over Violence campaign. T'Chaka has secrets that are going to come back and bite Black Panther on the ass. But, before we continue, I feel like this is a sentence that has been thrown around a lot. "I think what was really fascinating and nearly very emotional for me, being that I'm Zimbabwean and American, that's something you always want", Gurira said. Joining Boseman for the bombastic spectacle is Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station), Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead), Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave), Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Letitia Wright (Urban Hymn), Angela Bassett (Strange Days), Winston Duke (Modern Family) and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland).


"Black Panther is visually stunning, from the backdrop of Wakanda to the handsome, intricate costumes, with technology playing an important role throughout", said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media.

Black Panther has 50 fresh reviews, 13 from top critics, and is being called "a superhero movie for the ages".

Actor Chadwick Boseman says Black Panther is "ground-breaking" as it is a rare film to feature a black superhero in the lead. As a piece of pop art, Black Panther is a real marvel. Vibranium makes up the suit that T'Challa dons as Black Panther, and its power is much guarded.

Boseman makes a singularly majestic hero and there's fine work elsewhere in the cast: Nyong'o's wilfulness and Wright's youthful mischief are welcome notes, while Andy Serkis attacks the role of maniacal brute Ulysses Klaue with lip-smacking aplomb.

For Gurira, the way the film depicts her culture was important. But now we have a director who knows how to handle a budget and actors who know how to step up to the occasion and we have an audience that wants to see themselves and an audience that wants to see us. Coogler is that kid and this is his fairy tale-a fairy tale for other kids who rarely get them, and never like this. This is what will most likely happen with Black Panther, marking another Marvel blockbuster hit.
