    The CGI was actually very decent, it's the virtual camera movements that make things look fake, especially in the mine fight. They should have used proper camera shots instead of having the virtual camera whiz around all over the place.

    Please use as much live action photography as possible when representing humans in motion. CGI it perfect for representing background, landscape, buildings, suit textures, machines and robotics but is still not best to show moving humans and animals.

    I love how they CGI'd "traditional african culture" to somehow seem "advanced" (that's literally what they did). They had to use the most advanced western visual technology in existence to fool our eyes into thinking our own african cousins could engineer wonderful things... think about how offensive that is. Couldn't they just take things that are legit african strengths... and make THAT the basis for BP's superpowers ?? If he's got lightning fast mind and superhuman strength - did he NEED nanotech ??

    Yeah, what happened with the final KillMonger/Panther fight scene? It looked really bad. Did they run out of money or something? It was actually cringeworthy bad in that fight scene and took me right out of the experience.
    Overall I thought the movie was just okay. Not terrible but not great, either. I agree that a LOT less CG should have been used. More practical effects.

    The CGI was terrible in this film. Why would this be highlighted as an achievement by wired? The underground rail scene was specifically dated.

    Folks want to hate black panther!! I see these blogs and a bunch of negative comments. Not hard to figure out why!! If you don't have nothing nice to say just don't say nothing!! This movie still topped some of the best animated movies in sales so who cares!!

    If you watch Black Panther then watch civil war. You can see in civil war all the BP movement looks more believable.
    Dont get me wrong this CG is remarkable, some scene i cant really see the difference. But i just prefer BP movement in civil war.

      +WolfJ4zzy I'm saying that that's not true. The Russo Brothers' cut-y style allowed for it not to be so obvious, but in all the movies Black Panther has been in, his suit is CGI almost 100% of the time. Check out some of the VFX breakdowns for Civil War and Black Panther to see what I mean.

    • WolfJ4zzy

      DNTwtch THSchnnl um what are you talking about? The movements in black panther are very stiff and unrealistic, while in CW, it wasn’t, as they didn’t use CGI.

    These CGI effects wasn't worse then in the Infinity War, but fights, acting, plot, especially plot were so bad, that I was just bored. I wanted nitpicked on every details, because of that. I wouldn't have noticed terrible CGI rhinos if the plot had been good, but I did coz it was supid story with nothing original.

    Honestly I think people are missing the point in the cgi in black panther. In terms of how characters looked they didn’t look so great but cgi isn’t only just completely comprised of character imagery and animations alone. They clearly showed whole backgrounds that were cgi. I’m completely blown away by that.
