A lopsided movie. The best scenes (the fight/wooing during the first meeting of Shang-Chi's parents and an amazing martial arts fight/runaway bus scene) occur early and slowly goes downhill from there. Climaxes with tiresome CGI spectacle. If you must watch, try to bail before the ultra lame post-credits scene that ties in the other Marvel projects. The film is lackluster enough without having to suffer bad actor and professional p**sy Mark Ruffalo. Ugh. It's best to bail on this early.
the CGI is horrible the animals look like a joke as well as the scenes. Also don't know why they added his friend in there she was super annoying. way too many kiddish jokes just wasn't a good movie at all.
Not a very well thought out movie. It was kind of mindless. The original comics were much better.
This movie was really bad. However most of the reviews here on tribute are crap and probably originate from Marvel. The M She U is in big trouble if they continue on this path.
I am looking forward to the sequel You did good marvel I love you 😍
Loved everything about this movie: story, action, actors, writing, direction and so on! High powered!
Not bad at all. Good chopsocky action here, and that's been lacking in these superhero flicks. Awkwafina was awkward and she's the main debit here. Shang-Chi and the Regend of the Ten Lings is worth checking out.
Pretty good film is a new slant on the superhero genre.
MUST SEE MOVIE! Full of suspense and surprises. Plenty of action. Great acting, just may be best picture this year.
Awesome movie paired with great artistry, comedy and chemistry!
I loved this movie. It had so much action and a lot of funny parts. I was really laughing throughout. Some of the lines were hilarious. The actors were fantastic.
Really great action scenes, not to mention the comedy in this movie is actually really funny and not cringy at all. The story line is really good and i love a good super hero movie WITHOUT it revolving around a love interest. Overall, one of my favourite marvel movies! Main characters are not women, but the women in this movie kick butt which is nice to see.
A lot of action and surprised with the comedy. Highly recommend.
Better the second time around. Very entertaining, could be Marvel's best picture so far, learning of Asian culture very interesting. Plenty of action and empowered women, strong women. All about family.
I loved this movie. Kept me interested and entertained through out the entire time. Loved it.
We need more. So good.
Wasn’t expecting this to be much but we were definitely surprised!! Any Marvel fan will love this movie! Great storyline, action packed, special effects, and so much more!
This was a great time at the movies. If you didn't like this action martial arts superhero flick then you went in there not wanting to like it because it's one of the best of its genre.
It's an wesome martial arts Marvel superhero movie. I loved it.
Loved this character in the comics when I was a kid, and love how they've updated him and his family for the big screen. Excellent kung-fu battles & stunts, especially the scenes on the bus and in Macao. Awkwafina brings great comic timing, Shang-Chi's dad and sister are much more interesting and sympathetic characters than they ever were in the comics, and the giant monster battle at the end brings some interesting Lovecraft and kaiju energy to the mix. A very worthy addition to the MCU!
Extremely bad , not sure what all the hype was about , wanted to leave half way thru but stuck it out til almost the end
Enjoyed this way more than I thought I would.
A great mix of myths and fights. We get to meet wonderful creatures who happen to live in a maze of a forest.
This movie was so much fun! It had the best of both worlds in it. The fighting scenes were awesome as well as the costumes. Entire movie was done so well. All the characters were great in it, so much action and humor at times made us laugh. There were seniors in the audience who loved this movie. Scenery and background scenes were beautiful. I enjoyed this more than Black Widow :) Can't wait for the sequel.
This movie is not worth the money. It's overrated. It is as bad as COVID-19.
I am 60 and it was one of the best movies before COVID!!!!!
I liked this better than Black Widow and Scarlett Johanson was hot.
Sit back and enjoy! This film is highly-entertaining and filled with humor and heart.
This Movie is WOW! Marvel studios film at it's best. Incredible filming and special effects. Some parts funny, lot of action and drama. Love that Aquafina who played the dragon in Raya. Number one movie everyone is talking about.
So many holes and contradictions in the plot. I left early it was so B.A.D. Is this what Hollywood calls entertainment now a days? Movie hype doesn't work any more.
Overall, too unreal and ethnocentric. It did not go well trying to imitate Bruce Lee.
Overall, too unreal and ethnocentric.
Great story, good actors, wonderful performances, super entertaining, 7 stars !
We finally got time away from our kids and this was totally worth it! There actually were some unexpected moments and the fight scenes were top notch, like close to the elevator scene from Captain America Winter Soldier. The bus fight was very well choreographed. My wife actually really enjoyed this Marvel flick which says a lot. Go see it for some great escapism.
I really loved this show. It was a very physical movie for Simu, but he looked good with it all. Awkwafina did a great job of taking on how she could help out and she quickly mastered her task. Plus the Aunt. Took me a bit to recognize the voice/face. She played on Star Trek Discovery as the Captain from the alternate universe. I think it was a great job by everyone and really glad to see that there will eventually be a sequel as well. Might go see it again.
I loved the story line, the choreography, and the visual effects were awesome. I also liked the humor injected at just the right times.
I thought it was a very good film. I thought it was more than just about god and evil but about the good and evil in us and is about the choices we make
I enjoyed this movie so much. I love how all the characters are fleshed out with good motivations that you can even empathize with the bad guy. And it was such a great blending of martial arts, superhero and fantasy genres. So stylish and dramatic. Good Job Marvel!
I was hard pressed to really like the movie, the story line and intro was not done well. Simple good versus evil. Ying-Yang. The training was way to fast, and history.
Meh. All Marvel movies are stunning technical achievements, but the story on this one is kind of meh. Too much Basil Exposition. Too much explaining.
Great great movie! Very entertaining. Although I have to agree with another reviewer, Awkwafina seemed to phone it in at times, she kinda just stood there when she didn't have a line. When she had a line, she was good. But good actors keep acting even when they're not the focus.
Best. Marvel. Movie. Ever! And Simu Liu was outstanding. I've never seen Kim's Convenience but maybe I will now.
Some real good actors turning in an outstanding Performance....This movie had good guys worth rooting for and the bad guys were fearsome....there is just a enough comic relief to lighten what could have been 2 hours of biting fingernails.....and there was plenty of action but thankfully not the entire movie....
Although quite different with the excessive amount of oriental style fighting. it's 'unreal' presentation made the brutality acceptable. Surprises were fun and made the movie entertaining. Have not been to a movie in years and was surprised when I broke out laughing a couple of times.
This was good versus evil-Ying v Yang Taiji Quan with humour. Jacky Chan.
I love how the movie was made also that the fight scenes looked real great background settings I loved it.y
Not bad. Gets bogged down too much. Awkwardfina was bad. Some okay chopsocky but won't make anyone forget Bruce Lee. The protagonist was just a little too fey.
Awesome martial arts movie.
Usually character development happens at the beginning of films. Well, Shang Chi had character and situational development all the way thru the movie which extremely slowed it's progress. It lacked a sense of urgency to get to a climax. There were connections to other MCU movies that lacked excitement. The acting was good though. I wasn't expecting anything special either. That's what I got.
