Helmed by Ryan Cooglar and starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett in pivotal roles, Black Panther, is a radically different superhero film, unlike any Marvel Superhero film you’ve ever seen. Featuring a nearly all-black cast, the film ignores United States of America and is based on the fictional country of Wakanda. Just the way Wonder Woman, played a game changer for women, Black Panther has, for the first time in the history of cinema, has showcased an African American star cast, with the charge to save the world. All in all, the film has been getting positive reviews from all quarters.

Washington Post : It’s these actors — their faces, their commitment, their attention to craft and detail — that elevate “Black Panther” to stirring heights, whether they’re surfing on top of speeding cars through the colorfully lit streets of Busan, arguing against the backdrop of a teeming, futuristic city or communing with their deceased elders on the ancestral plane. And, as they dominate the screen in a movie rooted firmly in their own history and narratives, they provide an exhilarating, regal rebuke to the chronic absence and denigration of black bodies in American cinema. “Black Panther” may be grounded in the loops, beats, rhymes and hooks of contemporary film grammar, but it feels like a whole new language.

Hindustan Times: Black Panther is Marvel continuing what films like the last couple of Captain America movies, and even Thor: Ragnarok, to an extent, started; I dare say, for over an hour, it is barely even a superhero movie. But this is just what Marvel needed at this stage in their industry-altering and blazingly ambitious series of interconnected movies…It would perhaps have been too bold of Marvel to make this geopolitical thriller without any action – perhaps one day, when there is not a shred of insecurity remaining, and just confidence, and pride, we could expect a movie in which instead of beating each other to a pulp, characters have a chat instead. But till then, we will have Black Panther, a movie that takes just as much pride in showing off its CGI-heavy landscapes as it does in reveling in surreal African rituals. It is vibrant, dizzyingly well-plotted, and when it needs to be, immensely relevant.

Variety : Although previous big-screen examples certainly exist — among them Wesley Snipes’ “Blade” and Will Smith’s “Hancock” — “Black Panther” celebrates its hero’s heritage while delivering one of Marvel’s most all-around appealing standalone installments to date. Going forward, Black Panther will join the ranks of the Avengers, further diversifying their ranks. In the meantime, it’s awesome to see Black Power celebrated in such a mainstream fashion.
NDTV : This is a movie with frames busy and beautiful enough to deserve an IMAX viewing. Ruth E Carter’s costumes are enchanting, a mix of tradition and aggressively forward fashion, where neck-coils meet strikingly colourful armour. Coogler wears his influences on his sleeve, and the film doffs its hat at many touchstones of African culture as depicted in American cinema, from Coming To America to The Lion King. Now, of course, Black Panther is right atop that list….Black Panther has both grace and the spirit of Grace Jones. This is not merely a great film but, vitally, a cool one. It is in every way – visually, spiritually, temperamentally, swaggeringly, stylistically, philosophically – cool. You’ll believe a man can be fly.
