Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

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

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is the latest entry and newest hero to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it's another hit for Marvel.

I found myself really enjoying this film up until about the third act - there's a scene in the movie where you can feel it sort of come to a screeching halt and it unraveled a bit from there. If they would have nailed the third act, I could have easily seen Shang-Chi in my upper echelon of the MCU.

Arguably Marvel's most beautiful film to date (outside of a real ugly climax) with some of the best action they have to offer. The movie shines when it focused more on the martial arts and the characters and less so when dealing with more of the mystical side of things. Still, I'd say it's one of the better origin films we've gotten to this point.

All in all, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is yet another winner but I can't help but wish the third act was better.
