Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings ★★★★½

*Potential Spoilers* 

Had an absolute blast with this. I half forgot I was even watching a Marvel movie to be honest. Everyone has said it, but the choreography of the fight scenes were absolutely incredible and you could tell they drew a lot from so many of the kung-fu classics to create some amazing action. 

Even the final act, which has been criticised for being bland Marvel storytelling, I thought was quite good and didn’t actually make me feel that way. Though, it definitely didn’t quite hit as well as the first two acts. 

What I love the most about the Marvel movies is that they actually have a bit of fun with their characters. They’re not afraid to have Wong singing karaoke and partake in underground cage fights in his spare time or throw Trevor Slattery into the story which was completely unexpected (absolutely loved him in this. So funny!)

I know it’s popular to dislike Marvel films these days but I just can’t help but be excited by them. Great addition and looking forward to seeing more Shang-Chi in the future.
