Press Quotes

Entertains, provokes, energizes.

     —The New York Times

'Panther' does a good job of capturing the idealism and excitement of the party's early days... a vivid period reconstruction of the way the Panthers grew both through community programs... It makes a compelling story.

     —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

The most compelling part of 'Panther' is a sincere attempt at celebratory, spirit-raising filmmaking in the 'Malcolm X' mold, a romanticized but effective attempt at creating heroes & showcasing the positive aspects of the Panther Party & its message...

     —Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

the performances are quite good and the film keeps you engaged throughout

     —MIKE SPRING, Live For Film
