QUICK TAKE:
Superhero Action: The new king of a technologically advanced African nation must contend with challenges to his rule and his country's isolationism.
PLOT:
Following the death of his father -- the king of Wakanda -- from a terrorist bombing at the U.N. -- prince T'Challa, a.k.a. the Black Panther (CHADWICK BOSEMAN), is set to assume rule of the African nation with the blessings of his mother, Ramonda (ANGELA BASSETT), and their tribal leader, Zuri (FOREST WHITAKER), but not before defeating a challenger for the throne in the form of M'Baku (WINSTON DUKE). To the rest of the world, Wakanda appears to be a third world nation. In reality, it's a technologically enhanced country that remains hidden due to an immense cloaking device fueled by the powerful metal vibranium that's in abundance there.

That material is desired by super-villain Ulysses Klaue (ANDY SERKIS) who's long bedeviled the Wakandan people and possesses a powerful arm cannon powered by it. With the help of black ops mercenary Erik Killmonger (MICHAEL B. JORDAN), Klaue steals more of that from a London museum. That act has drawn the demand from Wakandans such as W'Kabi (DANIEL KALUUYA) to have the terrorist killed, while others such as T'Challa's ex, Nakia (LUPITA NYONG'O), believe overall that they should help others around the world who are poor, sick or oppressed lead healthier and safer lives.

T'Challa is reluctant to do either, what with his isolationist country having flown under the world's radar. Nonetheless, and equipped with a special high-tech suit created by his tech-inventor sister, Shur (LETITIA WRIGHT), he sets out with Nakia and his top general-warrior, Okoye (DANAI GURIRA), to find and kill Klaue. But they aren't expecting to run into CIA agent Everett K. Ross (MARTIN FREEMAN) who's also after the terrorist but needs him alive. Little do they know, however, that Klaue isn't going to be their biggest problem as Erik -- with various personal and philosophical axes to grind -- sets out to turn their world upside down.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Many most likely will, especially if they're superhero movies.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For prolonged sequences of action violence, and a brief rude gesture.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
