Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

#1 Post by helenecolin » Mon Sep 13, 2021 12:46 pm

Went to see it on release day, and it's by far my favourite Marvel movie of the year (I really enjoyed Black Widow, but this one topped it). I found the story compelling, the fighting scenes were amazingly choreographed and the cast was just on point.

It feels like a lot of care went into this movie, way more than for most Marvels, and I could really see that. This movie is well worth it!

this big budget western wuxia is mostly fun. There is a lot of FX in it, so if thats your crutch then you'll be in for a treat.

The screen got quite dark towards the end and the film was overlong at that point too, so it felt a bit of a stretch in that final straight.

The cast turned up at the BFI fan screening (they were only a few feet from us!) which is pretty cool of them. Awkwafina (real name?) is v pretty n funneeeee but a little underused in the movie.

there are 2 credit scenes, both worth seeing.

Can't believe it's Meng'er Zhang's first film, she could be huge off the back of this.

One of my favourites from Marvel, loved it. 9/10
