Black Panther Rotten Tomatoes Score

1 Critic Ruined Black Panther's Perfect Rotten Tomatoes Score, and Now Fans Are Livid

On Thursday, Ryan Coogler's Black Panther received its first negative critique, dropping Marvel's latest superhero film — which has been universally praised up until this point for its diversity, originality, and characters — down from 100 to 99 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. As expected, fans are livid.

Now, listen: it's the prerogative of any film critic to be honest about their opinions. To critique the flaws of any film is their literal job. But it's what Ed Power at the Irish Independent dinged the movie on that has people upset, not simply the fact he dared to give it a less than perfect score to begin with. In his Thursday review, which gives the movie three out of five stars, Power's only gripe appears to be the Wakandan superhero's lack of action.

"What he doesn't get to do much of is jump around beating-up bad guys," Power writes. "That's a shame. Marvel has finally given us an African superhero. The hope surely was that he would be allowed do superheroic things."

Yes, the movie now has a less-than-perfect score because T'Challa apparently doesn't beat people up enough. For that reason, Black Panther fans have awarded the review zero out of five stars, as you can see ahead.
