“Shang-Chi” and the Legend of the Fourth Phase

Marvel has not done a great job with putting compelling villains on the big screen.  The number of truly interesting ones can be counted, probably, on one hand, and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is no different.  At least, it’s not different in that respect.  There are some ways the film stands out and that includes the excellent rapport Simu Liu and Awkwafina exhibit.  We would happily watch a movie where they just sat and chatted for two hours straight.

Of course, that’s not what an MCU movie is, is it?  No, we expect fights and action sequences and maybe even a big reveal or two.  We get… some of that here and some of it winds up being a little disappointing.
