Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Origin stories can be tricky. Trickier when you don’t just need to stand up on your own, but also have to serve the part of a bigger canvas. The MCU has officially entered a new phase and being the 25th entry in the canon puts Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings right in the center of critical cross-fire. It doesn’t help that the trailer that introduced us to our new hero wasn’t particularly exciting. This only makes me eager to report that the film, in all its generic glory, is an absolute blast.

Post-infinity saga, MCU has really nudged down on its character-focused developments. The Black Widow film felt so far-off and far-removed from what really went down, that director Cate Shortland had to force her hand to tie up loose ends in what has to be the most disappointing post-credit sequence in Marvel movie history.
