"Black Panther" Now Has a Perfect Score on Rotten Tomatoes!

Find out whether Marvel has a hit or a bust on its hands.

The review embargo has lifted and the Black Panther movie reviews are flooding in. As always we look to the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes to give an update. Thankfully, unlike with Justice League, they didn't decide to hide the score until Friday. After 48 critic reviews, the site gives it a perfect score of 100%!

The critic consensus is "Black Panther elevates superhero cinema to thrilling new heights while telling one of the MCU's most absorbing stories -- and introducing some of its most fully realized characters."

So far the movie is being hailed as a breakthrough in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

"Black Panther is every bit as good as you were hoping. Actually -- it's better. A terrific screenplay from Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole elevates this thing way beyond the usual boundaries of the Marvel Universe." - Liz Braun (Toronto Sun)

"You believe in T'Challa, you believe in Wakanda, and you believe - maybe for the first time - that the MCU actually matters." - David Ehrlich from indieWire

"Black Panther pounces toward the head of the class in a way that should make the King, and his key subjects, a cornerstone of an already-formidable roster." - Brian Lowry from CNN.com

"Inspiring and empowering in equal measure, Black Panther is a richer & deeper experience than most comic book fare." - Neil Soans from The Times of India

"This is a superhero movie for the ages, and especially for this age." - Pete Hammond from Deadline Hollywood Daily

Several of the cast are singled out for praise:

"The incredibly stellar cast is led by a majestic Chadwick Boseman, reprising the role of T'Challa and finding him at a crossroads in his life." -  Katherine McLaughlin from SciFiNow

"Yet it's The Walking Dead's Gurira who steals the show as the ferocious Okoye, gloriously swinging her spear in a billowing red gown." - Emma Simmonds from Radio Times

Of the Marvel Studios movies, the closest they've gotten is for Iron Man 2 with 94%.

While a Rotten Tomato score doesn't guarantee a hit combining it with the ticket presales records it's looking good!


Official Synopsis: "After the events of Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war."
