Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

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

I have to believe that even in a Marvel movie, audiences greatly prefer the fun, clear martial arts scenes of the opening half (the bus chase, the scaffolding escape) to the CGI sludge of the finale. I recognize that Marvel movies always end with a massive setpiece. But ... maybe they don’t have to?
