Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Review
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has easily worked its way into our top 10 lists for MCU films, maybe even top 5 in some cases. With a unique story and incredible action and visuals, it is the best MCU origin film since phase 1. It also happens to be in our top 3 for that, nothing beats an Alan Menken song though, sorry Simu.
Not only is this an epic addition to the MCU lineup and arguably the best way to kick off Phase 4 excitement… no offense Black Widow, but it also introduces us to a whole new world of mythology and culture that many fans are unfamiliar with. If you thought the rhinos in Black Panther were amazing, you haven’t seen anything yet. So while yes this is a superhero movie it transcends that and tells a story that could stand on its own outside of the MCU. In fact, viewers might forget they are watching a comic book movie if it wasn’t for some cameos sprinkled in.
The entire film is visually stunning, from the lighting to the special effects and the costumes. Looking for action? The fight scenes are beyond anything that we have seen before, each better than the last and they all lead into a mind-blowing finale that will have you cheering.
We gushed about the cast’s performance and how much each of the legends brought to the film. Michelle Yeoh, Tony Leung, and Sir Ben Kingsley. Enough said.
Post-Credit Scenes: Yes! There are TWO post-credit scenes and both hint at future Phase 4/5 plans and we can’t say anything but you’re going to love them and we have A LOT to talk about.
