"The Black Panther" is the sad story of a man who should have stayed in the Army, as he needs to live in a military environment (see the 360° panoramic sequence in his private room full of weapons and military accessories - his wife and daughter do not seem to know what's happening inside, the movie doesn't say clearly). That killer needed to be in the infantry charging on the enemy, but definitely not being a burglar awakening everybody doing so much noise, getting mad and killing without reason. He fails everything he does, he wants to steal but succeeds only to kill. Fantastic performance by Donald Sumpter as the killer. And bright direction by Ian Merrick who directed only one other movie which seems forgettable.
