“A torture for the eyes”: Chinese moviegoers think Black Panther is just too black

Quote:Marvel’s first black superhero film Black Panther made a strong debut in China, taking in more than $63 million this weekend and helping it cross the billion-dollar mark globally. And while the film filled seats in China, it didn’t exactly bring in rave reviews from Chinese audiences—in fact, online reviews hint at subtle racism and discomfort with the all-black cast.

But the movie—which comes as a timely portrayal and celebration of blackness half a century after Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination—is hardly resonating with Chinese audiences. On Douban, China’s IMDb-esque platform, the film holds a 6.8 rating out of 10 (link in Chinese)—almost half of science-fiction and action movies rated by Douban users have a better score. Outside of China, Black Panther is on track to become the highest-rated superhero movie, according to Rotten Tomatoes; 97% of reviews from critics have been positive.

Some moviegoers disliked Black Panther because they felt Marvel was trying too hard to be politically correct (link in Chinese). While many reviewers on Douban stopped short of leaving overtly racist comments about the film, many discussed their discomfort of being surrounded by so much blackness.

“Maybe the Chinese are still not used to a film full of black people,” wrote one reviewer on Douban (link in Chinese). The commenter said he had to pinch himself more than 10 times to stay awake during the movie because “Black Panther is black, all the major characters are black, a lot of scenes are black, the car-chasing scene is black—the blackness has really made me drowsy.

...

Another reviewer who came into the theater late made a similar observation: “When I entered the theater, a bunch of black people was fighting in the night… I’ve never been in a theater so dark that I couldn’t find my seat.”


Someone else said the experience was worse in 3D (link in Chinese): “The film is filled with black actors and actresses. Also, because the film’s colors are a bit dark, it’s nearly a torture for the eyes to watch the film’s 3D version in the theater.”

Didn't they take Mace Dindu off the Star-Wars posters for the Chinese audience?

That knee-gro was straight up unappealing to the eyes.

It isn't just because he's black... he's also unattractive with simian features and a natural misfit, a goofy looking knee-grow clown. His facial features do not indicate bravado, stoicism, or any other trait that we identify in a classical hero. His range of emotions consists entirely of "OMG, holy crap!" and "WTF is happening here?" Yeah for sure if I were a primitive knee-grow stranded in space, I'd lose my mind pretty quickly too.

Also, that ugly Asian bitch had a sister in the movie. Why did the attractive one have to die? We both know the answer to that one.

This is what happens when you let SJWs direct everything. On top of being straight up ugly, the new main characters are total misfits. They can't act and they are not emotionally compelling... By the end of that two hour craptacle I was openly cheering for the dark side.

Yeah he is grotesquely ugly even by the standards of that race, really hard to look at on the screen.

I didn't know they had him kiss BOTH the white and Asian girl, just lol, Hollywood isn't trying to hide the signals at all these days.

At some point their propaganda will grow ineffective, since liberals are beholden to the ugliest, most dysfunctional members of society. Look a David Hogg, an ugly little twink with a fragile glass jaw. It's like if Civil Rights leaders during the 1960s told obese Sheneequas to do press conferences in front of white people.

SJWs do not want attractive, confident looking people delivering their message, since they are consumed by feelings of inadequacy.

Asians have always seen the African as a lower form of life and a novelty.

Even in Japan, the real reason that fighters like Bob Sapp and Rampage were so popular was because they were seen as performing animals for the masses to be entertained by.
