    I was not really interested in seeing this movie, but my daughter really wanted to go. I LOVED it! The story, the acting, the special effects…everything keeps you watching from start to finish and the messages in the dialogue, is jaw dropping!

    The Movie The Black Panther has stayed on top for a straight 5 weeks this is due to several factors,a strong marvel Studios production pedigree,another of the wave of strongly anticipated comic book characters,A race of people who have feverishly waited on a black driven sort of not only super hero but a powerful love portrayed on screen of their culture.

    Some of us know that movie got spammed by an user or user who keep posting derogatory comments which many were allow. For example calling the cast bottom barrels. I am disappointed with this website allowing all kinds of derogatory words plus one user said downloading illegally the movie.
    Many of the comments were against of the Africa culture.

    People who didn’t like the movie are allowed to not like it and say so. I don’t see how they’re any worse than the 5 star spammer who is way, way more annoying with the one lines that contradict each other. The 5 star spammer says she has to study (is a student?), talks about her husband, talks about her wife, talks about how much her kids loved the movie, I mean, come on. It’s all obviously made up. And then goes over to Death Wish and gives it one star over and over. Pathetic.

    Shame on for allowing the Troll (same person) to lower the ratings on the Black Panther movie.
