Shang-Chi: The Legend Of The Ten Rings (DIS+):
Shang-Chi, the master of weaponry-based Kung Fu, is forced to confront his past after being drawn into the Ten Rings organization.
I didn’t know what to expect from this, but was told from more than one account that one does NOT need to know anything Marvel to watch this movie. As a fan of Asian cinema, decided to check it out. I must say, this was a friggin’ kick-ass movie. John Woo or Ang Lee might as well had directed it. Action was great, the storytelling even better, VERY solid movie. I love that Tony Leung was in this, he’s been in a few favorite movies of mine, along with Michelle Yeoh. DEFINITELY recommend.
Ben Kingsley’s small part was a perfect dose of levity as well. The director has put out there that he’d love to get Jackie Chan out of his hiatus for the sequel. Would be pretty cool to see.
