“Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”

Part Batman. Part Bruce Lee’s “Game of Death.” Part Black Panther… this was much better than expected for an MCU installment about a hero I had never heard of. The eastern influence on this story, from the journey of our main character to assume his family’s crest and a curse to the soundtrack, it’s a welcomed change of pace for Marvel. The action is off the charts good. The fighting is even somewhat original. This was a breath of fresh air in this stage of the maturing Marvel Cinematic Universe. The set pieces in this one reminded me of the best of “Avatar.”

Ignore the CGI cluster that is the Marvel third act, and enjoy this strong entry into the post-infinity Marvel saga.
