Shang-Chi Review

G.I. Joe

Action and Drama

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is both a spiritual and emotionally complex film, with some of the best action you’ll see in an MCU flick.

SHANG-CHI

Inspiration

Director Destin Daniel Cretton has created a rich fantasy world that feels indebted to China and Hong Kong’s adventurous fantasy martial arts films, which fits perfectly alongside the vibrant mythology of the MCU.

Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) is a parking valet who’s living his best life with his best friend, Katy (Awkwafina). His past comes to haunt him in the form of his father, Wenwu.

Wenwu

Shang-Chi‘s Wenwu is one of the best villains Marvel has put out there. He’s a complex and compelling villain played by Tony Leung.

Simu Liu

Although this is Liu’s first big role in Hollywood, Liu absolutely aces the role with his charm, relatability and dedication to the character.

Action

The film has the best fight scenes ever in an MCU film, beating out the likes of the Captain America films. The fights are crazy with some one-shot takes, and there's no shaky cam.

The Cast

Awkwafina adds grounded, emotional drama to the film, and Michelle Yeoh is a treat as the mentor.

THE CAST

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is an absolute blast. It’s a breath of fresh air that works as a stand-alone story, but it also feels like a crucial element for the future of the MCU.
