Mini Review - Black Panther

Black Panther (out Feb 15) gets a little confusing during the opening character intros / history lessons but develops into a terrific superhero flick with a rich, compelling story. It's laced with political messages, has a few neat twists, and blurs the line between good and evil. Director Ryan Coogler (Creed) also deserves praise for the action scenes that are light on special effects and editing. Michael B. Jordan the pick of the great cast. Grade: A-.
