The Marvel novelty is compared to the works of Jackie Chan and Miyazaki.
On August 16, the closed premiere of the blockbuster “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” took place in Los Angeles, and several authoritative publications briefly shared their first impressions of the next Marvel creation.
#ShangChi is an absolute triumph, unexpectedly spiritual and emotionally complex, with some of the very best action in the MCU. @SimuLiu is your new favorite Avenger and the movie’s myriad influences (everything from Jackie Chan to Hayao Miyazaki) pay off big time). Astounding.🐉 pic.twitter.com/72Yubnb4KV— Drew Taylor (@DrewTailored) August 17, 2021
The film was liked by most critics, Techradar said , highlighting the highlights from professional moviegoers’ reviews. Collider’s Steven Whitraub is convinced that Shang-Chi is unlike any other Marvel movie:
“It is worth noting Simu Liu, who fits perfectly into the role of an oriental superhero.”
#ShangChi is fantastic. It's full of INCREDIBLE, beautifully choreographed fight scenes and full of badass women. Get ready to know Simu Liu's name if you don't already. Marvel has another hit on its hands. pic.twitter.com/3efV1kzJ7O— Kirsten (@KirstenAcuna) August 17, 2021
