As of Tuesday, November 8, the Rotten Tomatoes score for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” has been hovering in the mid-90s. As these reviews continue to pile in, this number will rise and fall but it looks like critics are absolutely loving the sequel, but it’s not without its flaws. As to be expected, many reviews mention the emotional roller coasters fans will ride while watching “Wakanda Forever.” “As surely as love can blossom out of heartache, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has transformed tragedy into triumph,” Toussaint Egan of Polygon wrote.
“There can be no doubt Coogler has meticulously thought all of this out, while still delivering the rip roaring action sequences and uncredited surprise appearances we expect from any Marvel movie, but especially its crown jewel,” Deadline’s Pete Hammond said of the sequel. Coogler was praised in many reviews, which should come as quite a relief for the director who had a tremendous amount of pressure on his shoulders when making this film. “‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever ‘succeeds as a new adventure, and as a tribute to a wonderful actor who was taken from this world decades too soon,” famed critic Richard Roper of the Chicago Sun-Times added in his review.
Additionally, Jamie Broadnax of Black Girl Nerds is calling “Wakanda Forever” the best film of Phase 4, making it the perfect film to close out this segment of “The Multiverse Saga.”
