Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings ★★★★★

“He could have used them for good, but all he wanted was power.”

This is probably one of the closest the MCU has come to matching Bay’s Transformers movies, which these MCU movies have tried and mostly failed to emulate. Like it has the humor, drama, pace, action, and scale of those movies nailed down almost perfectly although the effects and green screen still aren’t quite on the same level  in comparison to the stuff in the Bayformers movies. 

Combine that with the martial arts trappings and surprisingly well written characters (which are helped by equally awesome performances), and you get one of the rare MCU movies that I think is legitimately awesome. It will not be among my favorites of all time and 2021 releases like Malignant or Godzilla vs Kong are better all around, but this is still a treat regardless.
