FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Black Panther is a revolutionary and empowering action adventure that pushes away from overused superhero story elements to pave a new, deeply-layered path. Its richly-cultured story is supported by mesmerizing visuals, a heart-thumping score, emotional themes and memorable characters all while delivering the action and quirkiness of an MCU story proving this isn’t just another typical superhero film.
