Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings reviews are pouring from all corners as first viewers are telling us if it is a good movie or not.
The movie is many firsts, and it must reach some level of achievement to be considered good. For example, it is integral in introducing the other movies in the MCU Phase 4 project. Additionally, as the first Asian superhero getting its standalone film, it could open the door for other heroes from that part of the world.
With its record-breaking opening weekend Box Office earnings of $71.4 million, it seems on the right path already.
“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” could be a cultural resetter like the “Black Panther” movie was back in 2018. Thus, it is understandable that people are already giving their two cents about it just two days after it began its theatrical run.

Another viewer had this to say:
Shang-Chi was great, some of the best cinematography and fight choreography I have seen out of the MCU recently. I just wish the film had better pacing because while I liked the characters and the jokes landed for me, there was way too much time spent on trying to be funny.

IGN’s review praised creating an “emotionally complex villain, a stellar cast with fantastic chemistry, and incredible action sequences.” The movie also has a 92% score on Rotten Tomatoes after 89 reviews, and The Wall Street Journal review of the film praises it for its completeness.
“”Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is a breath of fresh air because it is—almost—a self-contained and original story. Research not required. Marvel cult membership optional,” the publication said.

Another viewer seemed to think that the movie could have done without the last fight scene.
Shang-Chi is almost cinema. That final final battle should’ve been deleted tbh. pic.twitter.com/hbdmhaDGzr

Another person feels that the humour did not hit as the makers expected, resulting in as few laughs as possible.
