monic’s review published on Letterboxd:
mcu at its finest. the action, visuals, story were all perfect for me. simu was perfect as shang-chi!!! i loved the bond between shang-chi and katy, it was so cute and their friendship is really nice. tony leung as wenwu is an absolute win and one of the few great villains of the mcu. each character made an impact & i felt like i was able to easily connect to them. xialing is one of them, I totally loved her character. michelle yeoh as jiang nan was super lovely and i really felt her character’s warm presence during her scenes, & ta lo is such a beautiful magical place. really got a lot of narnia vibes during the third act. i really wanna talk about more without spoiling but all i can say is this film made me super happy and i was in awe the whole time. best mcu origin film too. can’t wait to see more of shang-chi in the mcu with other mcu characters, i KNOW he will be great and wow those powers will definitely contribute A LOT, his powers are fantastic.
Phase 4 is just wow, each entry is special.
so yes, i love this film & i’m so happy it’s doing good. well deserved!!!
