Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings preview

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is the 25th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first to feature a predominantly Asian cast.

Besides Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, the film stars Awkwafina as Shang-Chi’s friend Katy, Tony Leung as leader of the Ten Rings Wenwu and Meng’er Zhang as Shang-Chi’s sister Xu Xialing. The cast also includes Michelle Yeoh, Fala Chen, Meng’er Zhang, Florian Munteanu and Ronny Chieng. Fans of the MCU will also recognise Benedict Wong, who reprises his role as Wong for this movie.

The story is pretty straightforward. Young man with incredible abilities (martial arts skills this time around), runs away from his troubled past and tries to lead a normal life. However, the past catches up with him. He has to step up, confront his demons and hopefully save the day.

Just because the premise sounds familiar doesn’t mean Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is any less memorable. Quite the opposite. With dazzling action sequences and committed performances, the movie delivers not only a compelling story, but captivating characters you’ll be dying to see again. It also gives viewers a chance to learn more about the Ten Rings, a criminal organisation first mentioned in the MCU in Iron Man. That’s more than a decade ago.

If you’re unfamiliar with Marvel, don’t let that detract you from experiencing this movie in all its mesmerising glory. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is a delight regardless of your previous knowledge of this ever-expanding cinematic universe. You might miss an Easter egg here and there, but you’ll still find the film entertaining.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings premiered to positive reviews and currently has a 92% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Mark your calendars for 12 November.
