    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.

    Used way too much CGI in the final fight. The rhino's looked terrible and the suits looked like cartoons. Definitely preferred the Civil War suit

    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.

    The landscape is beautifull and lot of actions are great, the fight with the metro was the part i did not like graphically, all other scenes also the outside action scenes were so real. Also in infinity war it looks zo real.

    The sad thing is, The Black Panther was created just to sell more comics to black kids. It’s a corporate pandering project by Marvel. Think about it, his super power is being black. Seriously? Lol

    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.

    It's easy to spot the CG, it's definitely not seamless. It looks clean, but it's obviously fake. The rhino running looked super fake, they know it too.

    as much as I love the whole concept of CGI in movies, I feel like it should be used to support the physical footage and fx, not replace them.
    alot of black panther felt more like a video game cut scene than a movie. I get that there are moments where CGI is necessary since obviously we dont have the tech or superpowers, but so we really have to completely replace the actors for most of the movie?

    The challenge duel for the kingship was really poor. So very obvious that the onlookers on the cliff ledges were cgi. it really ruined the immersion. We have come a really long way but I guess we are not really there yet.

    I completely understand that this movie used ALOT of experimental CGI technology. However completely replacing characters for long and drawn out scenes is a terrible idea.
    They should have stuck with an actual actor then using CHI to “touch them up”.
    Like T’challa walking up the wreck the suit actually looked decent. But the fight scenes look so rubbery and fake. I understand you can’t drop a person off a cliff and just “touch it up” but other films manage it so well.
