Movie review: 'Black Panther,' stellar superhero movie is among the best Marvel has ever made

Parents need to know that "Black Panther" is the first film in the Marvel cinematic universe to center on a superhero of color: African prince-turned-king T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), aka the Black Panther. As in all superhero movies, there's plenty of violence – in this case, mostly brutal hand-to-hand combat that gets quite intense, with bloody injuries and even deaths. Although there are a few shoot-outs with super-powered guns/cannons (as well as some cold-blooded killings), the majority of the action features spear and blade fighting. That said, some confrontations do include larger, explosive battles and very destructive car chases. Language and sexual content are pretty minimal – a few uses of "s--t" / "hell" and a couple of quick kisses, respectively.
