Shang Chi was an alright Marvel entry. It wasn’t great, but was a fun and entertaining movie. It had its ups and downs but it was able to hold my attention for the majority.
The fight scenes were fun and inventive. The bus scene was the best scene of the movie in my opinion. Very cool, creative and Jackie Chan-esque. The scaffold fight was also great. The martial arts as a whole were all done well.
Where the movie lost me was the very end when the Marvel mandated CGI monster battle was shoe horned in. I thought the battle between Shang Chi and his father would have been a fine ending but what do I know.
The only other thing I really had an issue with was his fucking ugly trash ass mid-top team Jordan’s Shang had on the whole movie! Take some money out of that bloated CGI budget and get Simi Liu some 1’s or 3’s or 11’s or any retros for fucks sake.
