- One negative review has broken the 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for “Black Panther.”
- The review criticises the film for not showing its hero beating up enough bad guys.
- People are not happy.
On Thursday, “Black Panther” got its first and only negative critic review so far.
It was inevitable. Not everyone can like all the same movies (except “Paddington 2,” which still has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes).
But “Black Panther” was so close to keeping a perfect score. Reviews came out on Tuesday, and the film had a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for two days.
Critics have praised the movie for its villain, played by Michael B. Jordan, as well as its political statement and bold departure from the tired superhero-movie formula. A handful called it the best movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But not everybody loved it. The first negative review came from Ed Power, a film critic who writes for the Irish Independent.
The reason? Power didn’t think Black Panther beat up enough bad guys.
Some people on Twitter criticised the critic for missing the point of the movie, which marks a significant moment in Hollywood and culture. They also questioned Power’s taste.
This one negative reviewer of Black Panther gave it a rotten because T’Challa doesn’t beat up enough “bad guys”. Really my dude? pic.twitter.com/8fupQDhTpQ
