Some quick thoughts on Shang-Chi. The film ended up being a real surprise and I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Not really knowing much about the character I was basically expecting just a martial arts Marvel movie. Unexpectedly the movie delivered so much more.

The film did feature several great martial arts action scenes. The bus fight was absolutely epic and there was a terrific battle on some scaffoldings. What surprised me was the mysterious mythical elements like a hidden world guarding a gateway to another dimension. Flying dragons and the 10 rings having extraterritorial origins elevated the film. It was a terrific action flick and I can’t wait to see more of the character in future MCU films. The post credit scene sets that up so well.
