    In some ways Shang-Chi is an exciting new departure for the MCU. In many others though, it's just another MCU film. That said, I like MCU films, but yeah this is mostly another origin story. It's a heroes journey with a fun comic relief, lots of CGI fight scenes, and a handful of cameos from other films. Don't get me wrong though, the formula works. What spices it up a bit is some impressive hand-to-hand combat choreography that is somewhat new to the MCU and glorious to watch. As a martial arts fan, I enjoyed these moments a lot, even with the filter of CGI surroundings. It also has a surprisingly dense mythology of both real world myth and Marvel myth that makes a fun world, and a villain with a sympathetic goal. It's not Marvel's best, in particular some pacing issues drag the whole thing down a bit, but it's still a solid origin story that does enough new.

    Fun (albeit clichéd) ride with some fantastic action to boot.

    Mostly boring. Frankly it needed more Leung and more of the weird soul devouring dragons stuff.

    Another solid Marvel entry and it's a good thing as this Phase 4 has been quite a mixed bag. I've never been a Shang Chi fan and I think Marvel has succeeded at the cinematic experience for the character. There's a lot here to enjoy and finally a villain has a bite sized chunk of the film. There's better Marvel films in there library but this was a lot of fun and had enough style to ensure it separates itself from the others. The only weak moments are in the end credits which setup sequels that don't feel that relevant right now. Marvel films are in danger over saturation with the Tv shows and films so Shang Chi definitely works to bring an origin that feels different and cinematic.
