Michelle Yeoh and Tony Leung Chiu-wai are the real stars here. After a year since I've seen it, the Xu Wenwu vs Ying Li fight scene is the only memorable part of the movie.

Dazzling fight scenes and wild fantasy action propel this martial arts superhero flick. The family drama is surprisingly engaging similar to Black Widow. There is a lot of imagination and creativity with the different action scenes and the different creatures that appear in the film. Simu Liu is likable if a bit bland as the protagonist. Awkwafina is actually not that annoying as his friend and sidekick. The standout is Tony Leung. He is very good as the villainous Mandarin (the real one as they explain). The fight choreography is some of the best in the entire MCU. And it doesn’t cut away from the action like Snake Eyes did. In fact, this does play out like a far superior version of that movie.

About 40 minutes into Shang-Chi, we get the story of how the Ten Rings tyrant Xu Wenwu (Tony Chiu-Wai Leung) tried to uncover a secret, mystical village of Ta Lo and instead met future wife Ying Li (Fala Chen) who easily disarmed the supposed legendary warrior in a poetic dance/battle set in a picturesque bamboo forest complete with a waterfall and a casually-winding creek. It's graceful with a touch of fun and a hint of romance to come - and it's a big part of what makes Shang-Chi stand out from a typical MCU film.
Marvel films tend to be big and bombastic - heavy on the action and CGI - entertaining, but not always much more than one eye-candy scene after the other. Shang-Chi plays things a bit different. We are introduced to our hero "Shaun" (Simu Liu) as a typical San …
