The Dark Herald Outsources: The Shang -Chi Review

Sorry, but I’m not going to have time to see this one in the immediate future.

So, I’m turning it over to a foreigner who will do the work I won’t.

    The super villain is what made this movie work for me, Tony Leung sold me on his character, goals, and motivations. Even during the massive CGI battle at the end of the movie, Leung uttered a line that had to inflict a nasty emotional wound on his son and that kept the fight more grounded and real for me. It was a line you could see a father, full of frustration and rage, saying and then regret saying it.

    So while I agree with the Critical Drinker on a lot of points, the first hour of the movie wasn’t pointless. The villain wants his family back, and that includes bringing his son and daughter home.

    Shang-Chi’s sister was annoying but in the end Shang-Chi gets to be the hero and saves the day, not the supporting characters.

      That’s the hilarious part. China banned Shang Chi due to the Mandarin’s first incarnation as Fu Manchu… And Not-Fu Manchu is the best part of the movie!

    The movie continuously undermines the hero to the point of absurdity. For me is absolutely broken for that reason as I wouldn’t want to be the hero. I wanted fu-man-ring to kill them all.

    At this point I wonder if I can’t enjoy anything anymore because I’m older.

    Then this movie comes and reminds me is not because of me.
