The film currently has a 97% positive score on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the highest rated comic book movie on the entire site. While I personally enjoyed the film and found it to be on a comparable level to the first Captain America movie, I don't believe it deserves anywhere near the massive praise its been receiving. Do you believe Black Panther lives up to the hype?

it's the best marvel movies so far next to thor ragnarok so no unless you think all marvel movies are over rated.

I'll be watching this afternoon. It's been getting a lot of praise, but then, pretty much all the recent Marvel films do, so no surprise there. That said, I enjoyed the first Captain America movie - not the best thing ever, but still a fun time (which also got massive praise), so if Black Panther is on that level, I'll be happy with the cost of my ticket, popcorn, and drink.

Do find it interesting/odd that my local theater is dropping it later this week, though. It's raking in tons of money, and most superhero movies last a few weeks more. Perhaps it's not popular here, or they didn't think it would have the following it does when they negotiated their contract for the airing.

Edit: Just got back from it, thought it was a lot of fun!

Sorry I don't pay to go to the movies, or buy movies anymore.

Some way shape or form I will be disappointed.

Saying that. Whenever you see rotten tomato bump up the rating to a near perfect score, it's to simply over hype for sales instead of actually critically going through the film honestly. Sure it might be good, ya a lot of movies are good, and you won't see them with 97%. So don't bullshit me

It's a really good movie that definitely does stand at or near the top of the superhero genre (though it has some of the usual flaws like dodgy CGI at times), and it has a much more important cultural and societal aspect than any other. I'm not even someone that the cultural element directly applies to and I can still feel it.

So, over rated based on a commonly misunderstood aggregate score? Possibly. But over rated based on actual real world metrics? No.

I've been asked to come with and watch it last Sunday. Didn't feel like it. Trailers usually put me off from watching anything. No, that's probably not it. I only went cinema twice in my life. Too noisy.

It lives up to all the hype.
If you liked all the other MCU movies, you'll like this one

it's a futuristic movie with an almost black cast, big deal. cast white, it would have been called something else, such as Civil War. it's not that big of a deal and the hype is seriously overrated. I'm not impressed with it, and it's remotely racist to the race in question. the world just so happens to be based off of Africa like and not very futuristic... thought we were trying to evolve here, not stay the same old song and dance with a different race. but that's Disney for you...

This. I just saw it and I voted "not overrated." It was really quite excellent.

Never seen it, so neither. If it's action comedy, then I'll check it out.

Don't know don't care. Just Disney playing politics with their marketing. Haven't seen the movie but I will vote yes because no marvel movie made by Disney deserves that much praise.
