Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings ★★½

The first 45 minutes, which feel more like a conventional origin story, are decidedly more fun than what follows. The momentum slows down as the lore gets deeper and duller, and the finale is truly a slog. The handful of practical action sequences emphasize just how unnecessary and jarring bad CGI can be.
