Wenwu (Tony Leung) who in his millennium-long search for eternal power, commands the 10 rings and becomes a fearsome, unbeatable warrior.
When he falls in love with Jiang Li, (Fala Chen) the guardian of the magical land of Ta Lo, he gives up the rings and settles down to be a family man, taking pride and joy in his children, Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) and Xialing (Meng’er Zhang).
A terrible tragedy sees Wenwu pick up the Ten Rings again and train Shang-Chi to be an assassin. Ordered a hit at 14, Shang-Chi runs away to San Francisco, changes his name to Shaun, and hangs out with Katy (Awkwafina), a hotel valet.
All changes when a bunch of thugs, including the scary Razor Fist (Florian Munteanu) attack Shang-Chi and Katy. What happens next forms the rest of the story.
Director Destin Daniel Cretton has inculcated martial arts form from the east and has given the Marvel Universe a new theme. He has also retained the classical Marvel touches as well. With such an emotional lead Tony Leung suits the role perfectly.
Tony adds more value and meaning to the character. The rest of the crew have also been aptly cast.
The movie has a calm nature and uniquely stands out from the rest of the Marvel movies released so far.
