Black Panther

Black Panther ★★★½

The first MCU movie in 10 years to actually be about something! Great performances, real emotional weight, stunning production design/costumes, but it’s let down by bland cinematography, weightless CGI and a few gags that undercut the pathos. Winston Duke steals it, and Michael B. Jordan lives up to my post-Creed assessment that he can out-perform anyone else in the room with his shoulders alone.
