Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings – Destin Daniel Cretton (2021)

  • action

Early in the “fourth fase” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a new director gets a whole new storyline.

A Chinese legend of a man is told who became immortal when he obtained ‘the ten rings’. Not just immortal, Xu is unconquerable. After a few centuries of battle he tries to settle down, have kids, grow old. Of course things do not turn out that way.

We mostly follow Xu’s son Shaun (Shang-Chi) who lives his life parking cars, whose past catches up with him. He needs to return to his land of birth and find his sister to fight his father. A not too interesting story unfolds.

I wonder how this new storyline will be woven into the rest. There is a Wakanda-like land beyond a waterfall, new dark and light creatures, etc.

The film is not boring, but I wonder why something completely new was found necessary.
