After completing his mission, a dismayed Shang-Chi flees to San Francisco and adopts the name “Shaun” as his pseudonym. He works as a valet for a girl he has known for a long time named Katy (Awkwafina). Shaun and Katy are very close and even Katy’s family wants Shaun to marry Katy soon.

One day, while on his way to work, Shaun was attacked by some people who wanted to take his pendulum. The pendant was given by his mother, Yin Li, as one of the ‘gifts’ that saved Shaun’s life later. Shaun initially thought it was just an ordinary pendant, but it turns out his pendant has the power to make it a target.

Shaun, who always looked like a man in general became an excellent fighter. This surprised Katy; especially after the two of them not only had to save themselves from being attacked by 5 people at the same time, but also save the bus they were on because it started to lose control due to Shaun fighting with all of them. surname.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings movie review


As we all know, in every movie produced by Marvel, there is always an element of comedy, even though the movie is very serious. But this time it feels like the comedy keeps repeating so that the audience doesn’t get bored when watching Thuong Chi’s story. Moreover, many of the characters in this movie love to act in comedies and are comedians.

One of them is the dilapidated Awkwafina ; Some scenes that made me laugh was when Awkwafina, who was clueless, had to finally get caught up in Shang Chi’s household chores and face all sorts of dangers. Ironically, Awkwafina is able to participate in solving things with her signature flashy style. Oh yes, this movie is also the reunion of the cast of Crazy Rich Asian, Awkwafina, Ronny Chieng and Michelle Yeoh.


Simu Liu can really portray Shang Chi’s character well. If he wants to act seriously, fiercely, even jokingly, he can do it easily. Not only that, but he also built chemistry with his co-star, Awkwafina. The two of them, who at first I thought could just be friends, turned out to be a perfect couple too!

Movie shang chi

I’m sure that in the next Marvel project, the two of them will also be the characters we’ve been waiting for. Simu Liu and Awkwafina are able to balance the fight against each other so that it doesn’t always turn out to be comedy or too serious. Well, I really thank the director Destin Daniel Cretton for being able to put these two characters in one frame. Will they later become one of the members of the Avengers list?

I don’t think it’s a spoiler anymore if Marvel likes to give credits at the end of every movie. Now, this time the attribution shows that there will be another story about Shang Chi and his 10 magic rings, which will be the core story of this movie. The reason is, the appearance of Wong (Benedict Wong) in the post-credits scene brought a new story when he started researching the 10 rings with Dr. Banner (Hulk) and Captain Marvel (Carol).

Wong said that the ring that Shang Chi holds has a transmitter that sends the location, messages and any other information that exists as long as the ring is active to a place that remains a mystery. Hmmm, what do you think is actually contained in that ring? Maybe we can see that in the next movie. Salenhanh gave this movie a score of 3.4/5.
