Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

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

SHANG CHI was an absolute blast! An action-packed thrill ride powered by Destin Daniel Cretton’s direction, superb fight choreography, dynamic setpieces, numerous cameos & a powerful story with a surprising amount of emotional depth, it results in one of the best standalone films of the MCU.

While it does suffer from many of the franchises’ limitations (a cluttered final act, a few poorly motivated beats & washed out visuals), the film manages to stand out *just enough* from the rest of the MCU to become a somewhat unique entry that bodes well for the future of the franchise.
