Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

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

What a beautiful film.

It sounds kind of abstruse, I know. "Beautiful." But it is. From the beginning to the end I thought to myself: My God, this is beautiful to look at. Be it the fight choreography, which picks up speed at the beginning, then takes a time-out and climaxes in a wonderfully Asian atmosphere towards the end.

It was impressive to see how everything was captured. In glorious colours, with a soundtrack that is both classic and modern, this is where contemporary events in the form of streamers meet Far Eastern history and legends. The mix is so grandiose that I had tears of joy in my eyes.

The actors are thoroughly likeable and superbly chosen.

This Marvel film was once again "something different". Refreshingly new and a revelation for fans of Asian art.
