Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

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

The most fun I’ve had at a marvel movie since Ragnarok. If the whole movie was like the first half I’d give it a 10/10 but it slows down towards the end. Some amazing choreography that made me think this movie was going to be influential to the level of the raid, but the second half goes for more fantasy and abandons the slick stunt work. The jokes were funny and landed often and it had a surprising amount of heart, even awkwafina didn’t annoy the hell out of me. Wish the ending was on some agni kai martial arts type shit but no instead it reverts back to the good ol’ marvel cgi formula. It nearly became my favorite marvel movie but just missed the mark.
