Terrible. 3 at best. Dialog is awful. Accents are worse. How in the world can this be rated so high?

I told my daughter that I thought "Black Panther" was a typical average comic book movie.
And that's the same about every movie or TV show out there. Some movies rub you the right way, and most movies just rub you wrong.
While watching "Black Panther" I truly forgot that 99% of the casts were African Americans. It's no big deal to me. It does't matter to me.
I only cared about the story. And the story was the typical lame comic book story. Actually, the story was kind of stupid. But no more stupid than "Captain America Civil War".
Yeah, a lot of things don't make sense. But it's fiction and comic book stuff. I don't let the little things bother me.
In conclusion, the critics over hyped this movie big time. It's not as horrible as some people say, and it is absolutely not anywhere near as great as some people say.
Do not compare this movie to The Dark Knight trilogy.
And please do not compare this movie to "The Godfather" or "Shawshank Redemption".
Don't even mention Black Panther in the same book as Godfather or Shawshank.
Black Panther is just another mediocre comic book movie with a fairly stupid plot.
When I went to see this movie, I had a general positive expectation. Maybe Marvel movies are not at the top of my wish list, but I was curious enough to give it a willing try. Besides, it was a holiday and I had time to spend with my kid.
Boy, was I disappointed.
I found the story to be far-fetched, schematic, and uninvolving. Maybe that last quality is its greatest sin. I can deal with traditional story motives, good vs. bad, your occasional plot twist (to be seen miles ahead), but there must be more to a movie to grasp an audience's emotions. This movie did not do that for me, and seeing the lukewarm attention that it got for the other people in the cinema, it did not do the trick for them either.
What didn't particularly help was the wooden acting with the stiffest wood grain. It is as if most actors read their lines from a visual script, and were too busy doing that to offer more than high-school level acting. The only sad excuse may be that this movie is a derivative of a comic, so the dialogue was exactly as stiff, exaggarated, and unnatural as in any comic book.
The visuals, then. If you are a fan of over-the-top carnivalesque stages and dresses and, ahem, state-of-the-art CGI that has to make up for a lack of true cinematography, then this movie is for you. I know it is an action movie, but does that really mean that the makers need to test the audience's susceptibility to epilepsy? It is a poor man's shock & awe to the senses.
In all, we sat the show out, had an ice-cream, then moved on to wider horizons.
At home, I checked the IMDB score and couldn't believe my eyes. A 7.9 for this mess of a movie? I can understand temporary 'popularity', but this is ridiculous. I don't fall easily for conspiracy theories and scores being 'bought' by companies, but there is no explaining a 7.9 for 'Black Panther'.
Next, I looked at IMDB's user reviews. I noticed that they were much less favorable than the 'user ratings' indicate. No really, there is a HUGE gap between 'user ratings' and 'user review' ratings. How can that be explained?
So I checked the last nearly 300 reviews. What did I find?
People who took the trouble to write a few paragraphs about this movie, gave an average 4.3 to 'Black Panther'. A 4.3! That is nearly half of the rating the movie supposedly received from IMDB users in general. This is a ridiculous difference. IMDB may have its own algorithm to arrive at some 'weighted average', but that cannot account for this huge gap.
Here is a breakdown of the ratings awarded by 'IMDB user reviewers':10 - 5,5%9 - 4.5%8 - 3.4%7 - 8.3%6 - 16.6%5 - 15.5%4 - 10.3%3 - 8.3%2 - 8.6%1 - 19%
Please note that only 13.4% of IMDB user reviewers awarded 'Black Panther' with an 8, 9 or 10. While according to IMDB, no less than 66.4% of 'IMDB users' have given these ratings.
Sorry, this cannot be rationally explained, unless one makes untenable assumptions about the difference between 'users' and 'reviewers'.
In conclusion: all I can offer is my personal opinion about this movie. I am sorry that I invested time and money into seeing it. Neither my kid of 12 enjoyed it, neither did I. We had to choose between Disney's 'Coco' and 'Black Panther'. I think I'll make up for the disappointment of BP by taking my kid to 'Coco'.
