Black Panther (12A)

Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

T'Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.

The critical consensus

Confident, assured and athletic filmmaking. And with Boseman on such dignified, dynamic form, his Infinity War return can’t come soon enough.

****(*)James Mottram, Total Film, 06/02/2018

Like Taika Waititi before him, Ryan Coogler gives the Marvel template a bold auteurist twist with an African extravaganza that packs a muscular intensity and challenges as much as it exhilarates.

****(*)Jimi Famurewa, Empire Online, 06/02/2018

The intriguing thing about Black Panther is that it doesn’t look like a superhero film – more a wide-eyed fantasy romance: exciting, subversive and funny.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/02/2018

The result is a film that works just fine as an old-fashioned ripping yarn without ever forgetting its social conscience.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 07/02/2018

This mixture of James Bond and Edgar Rice Burroughs is a fun, action-packed tale with unusually serious undercurrents about race, colonialism and self-determination.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 09/02/2018

The most original, insightful and daring superhero movie in a long, long time.

Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 09/02/2018

Warriors both male and female fight for control of a vividly rendered African kingdom in this handsome superhero epic.

****(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 11/02/2018

For all its awesome action and real-world concerns, Black Panther is also surprisingly wacky. It may not be as trippy as Doctor Strange or as offbeat as Ant-Man, but as it takes us on a journey through the strange and subversive, high-tech and tradition-rich world of Wakanda it's one hell of a magical mystery tour.
