'Black Panther' is the thoroughly engaging, enjoyable and intricacy-laden emotional entertainer Marvel had seeked for a long, long time. A predominantly black-cast film, 'Black Panther' doesn't shy to laugh away its weaknesses, and is far from loud action which has been a 'genre-trapping' problem for the superhero action films of its kind. Sure it puts a lot of things in the box, but it never lets all of them mix up and form a crass-in-taste pudding. It is a whole barrel of entertainment, packed in with smooth, unflinching and delectable entertainment. It is the fun movie this cinematic universe had sought. I am going with 4 stars for 'Black Panther'. It is the best Marvel Cinematic Universe film, take that in writing.
Other than the cultural significance, the excellent cast, and a truly resplendent production setup, Marvel's Black Panther is just one of the averagely scripted and poorly action-directed superhero films in the MCU, the type of lowbrow story that existed before its genre-bending Phase 3. TN.
