Marvel Studios' "Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings" stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, who must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization. The film also stars Tony Leung as Wenwu, Awkwafina as Shang-Chi's friend Katy and Michelle Yeoh as Jiang Nan, as well as Fala Chen, Meng'er Zhang, Florian Munteanu and Ronny Chieng.

Fantastical! I watched Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings with no cannon knowledge of the character. Like all Marvel movies, it was a visual buffet of action. But Shang-Chi beats out other Marvel films when it comes to the beauty of the fight scenes. Martial arts are poetry in motion, and they highlighted that with incredible CGI. The ten rings are possibly the coolest and prettiest weapon!

Loved Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, and I've always been a fan of Awkwafina who played his best friend Katy. I liked the fact that Katy and Shang-Chi are best friends...that's it! No cliche romance. They might get together later on in the comic, but it would be nice to let them have a relationship like Hawkeye and Black Widow.

I have to mention Morris. He is one of the mythical creatures from the legendary village of Ta Lo. But what is he? He is The Hundun, or Dijiang, a faceless being of Chinese myth. You can read more about the Hundan HEREAnd in Disney style, you can buy this adorable guy!
Like all Marvel movies, there is a lot of humor. While there are some weak spots in the storytelling, Ten Rings is entertaining from start to finish! We aren't going to theaters yet, so I had to wait for it to come on Disney+, but boy, this would be fun to see in IMAX.
